On the Forecast: Gameweek 14

Can he starts scoring at The Reebok?

Saturday 20th November 2010
This one should be interesting ARS vs TOT. With Spurs only recorded one clean sheet on the first day, surely there will be goals in this match. A rare chance for Arsenal to leapfrog Chelsea even for an hour at least if they could win. We could see some profit in Fab investments this weekend if you ask me. Play your VDV, Bale, Nasri etc and expect they will score more than the defensive department. A high scoring match with both teams to concede. Don't worry, The Emirates aura will help The Gunners out.

After Newcastle form dipped (a draw and one lost in the last two), this match up BOL vs NEW should make us believe that The Magpies will get a full points against another compact opposition. Still remember Arsenal and Everton home losses? Is Elmander going to score only in the away matches? Why on earth that Bolton defenders got bonus when they aren't keeping a clean sheet? I give full support for Newcastle to go all out in this one and expect Elmander to break his home duck. Bolton to punish Carroll & Co.

The credentials of the most successful club in the premiership will be tested again this week at home to West Ham LIV vs WHAM. They will be without Captain Gerrard for four weeks and have to turn to others for inspiration...Joe Cole maybe;D. The Hammers drew their last three matches while The Reds just experiencing defeat in the hands of Stoke last time out. Based on current form, West Ham are relishing their chance for a result at Anfield and with their talisman injured, The Kop will turn to Mr El Nino and hope for the home advantage. Losing is not an option for the Liverpool faithfuls. Prediction: Torres to produce the result. Anyone care for Lucas suspension?

Expect a hostile reception for this ex-Gunner

Remaining matches:-

BIR vs CHE - Alex playing his last game before surgery; Desperate times for Ancelotti; Chelsea never lost two games in a row; Busy afternoon for the likes of Foster, Dann, Ridgewell etc.; Chelsea win the hard way. 

BLP vs WOL - Charlie Adam is a major doubt; Not so advantage on the home soil as they win more away games than home; Wolves need to start winning after three consecutive losses; They can turn to Jarvis, Milijas & Hunt for points; Wolves to start winning.

MANU vs WIG - Expect this week favourite captain Luis Nani to run amok; Not really, unpredictable Latics led by Charles 'Loyal' Nzogbia could prove a tough opposition; Don't trust the predicted drubbing based on last season, remember Chelsea? Tight win for the home side.

WBA vs STK - The Potters form is better than The Baggies after two consecutive home victories; A mini slump for Di Matteo side but they have the home advantage; West Brom will not lose and Stoke is far from an easy opponent. Prediction: 2-2 draw.

Sunday 21st November 2010
BLA vs AST - Villa attacking trio of Downing, Young, Albrighton will provide the ammunitions required; Dunn (if fit) & Gamst Pedersen to share the spoils; Home advantage and another ugly win for Allardyce's men; Can easily be a stalemate.

FUL vs MANC - City visit their former boss ground; Mark Hughes know a trick or two how they operate; Dempsey to operate in front again after Dembele crocked news; Tevez to produce something from anything and they will not go home empty handed; I would like a City win but the Cottagers are hard to beat in their ground; Another low scoring draw for me.

Monday 22nd November 2010
SUN vs EVE - Fresh from Chelsea's drubbing, The Black Cats are expected to continue their impressive run with Gyan in their side; Bent could return to the lineup and I am not sure that Elmohamady time may be over; Cahill & Co already knew how to win away. Very tough for me but Sunderland may edge this one.

Please leave comments if any and good luck for this weekend...
