In last week’s Rush Football’s Premier League prediction, we predicted the correct score line in four matches and the correct result in six – not bad. That’s why we’ve decided to give it another go for matchday seven…

West Ham United 2-0 Manchester United

In today’s early kick-off, West Ham host Manchester United at the London Stadium. There’s no better time to face the Red Devils with tension between the players and coaching staff at an all-time high. Meanwhile, the Hammers are unbeaten in three following an upturn in form which is why we think the home side will be taking all three points, piling more pressure on José Mourinho.

Arsenal 2-1 Watford

In North London, 6th place Arsenal take on high flying Watford. Arsenal, go into the match having won six on the bounce in all competitions, keeping just one clean sheet in the process. The Hornets on the other hand have seen a downturn in form recently following a bright start to the 2018/19 campaign. We predict a seventh straight win for the Gunners, 2-1.

Everton 1-0 Fulham

At Goodison Park, Everton who are without a win in their last four Premier League matches face 15th placed Fulham. In their last ten meetings, Everton have emerged victorious on seven occasions while Fulham have won just once. We predict a tight win for Everton.

Huddersfield Town 0-3 Tottenham

Bottom of the table Huddersfield Town are still searching for their first win of the season. They play 5th placed Tottenham who will be looking to end the day in the top four. We can’t see the Terriers stopping them.

Manchester City 4-0 Brighton & Hove Albion

At the Etihad, unbeaten Manchester City face out of form Brighton & Hove Albion. Pep Guardiola and his troops come into this fixture of the back of a convincing 5-0 win against Cardiff City last weekend and a midweek EFL Cup win. Meanwhile, the Seagulls are yet to keep a clean sheet this season and have conceded six goals in their last three matches. Our prediction? 4-0 City.

Newcastle United 1-0 Leicester City

On Tyneside, winless Newcastle United host Leicester City. Rafael Benítez will be desperate for a win to kickstart the Magpies season while a win for Leicester could see them end the day in the Europa League places. Despite Newcastle United’s disappointing start, we can see them winning this one.

Wolves 2-0 Southampton

Since their return to the Premier League, Wolves have performed exceptionally well. They have picked up points against Manchester United and City and come into this match unbeaten in September. Meanwhile, Southampton look vulnerable at the back having conceded five in their last two. 2-0 Wolves.

Chelsea 2-1 Liverpool

In Saturday’s evening match, 3rd placed Chelsea take on top of the table Liverpool. These sides met in the EFL Cup midweek, with Chelsea progressing to the next round following a 2-1 win. There isn’t much between the two teams, however, we think it’ll be a repeat of Wednesday night which could see Chelsea finish the day top of the league.

Cardiff City 1-2 Burnley

Sunday’s only match sees Cardiff City play Burnley in Wales. The home side have endured a tough start to the season, not only are they winless but also the leagues joint lowest scorers along with Huddersfield. Burnley have also endured a tough start to the season. Prior to the 4-0 demolition of Bournemouth last weekend, they had collected just a single point from their opening five matches. We predict the away side will be the happier bunch come Sunday night.

AFC Bournemouth 2-0 Crystal Palace

The last fixture of match day seven (on Monday night) is AFC Bournemouth v Crystal Palace. Bournemouth have started the season well but look vulnerable at the back. In fact, they have conceded more than any other side in the top half. Crystal Palace, on the other hand look good at the back but struggle going forward and have found the net just four times in the league this season.

That’s Rush Football’s weekend prediction for you! Roll on this afternoon!
