Charlie Nicholas predicts the results of the Premier League games, including Liverpool vs. Man City and Wolves vs. Aston Villa.
Wolves vs Aston Villa – Sunday, live in the Sky Sports Premier League at 13:00; Kick-off 2 pm
It's a very good Sunday and this is a great derby. Aston Villa is an open and expansive team. They played very well against Liverpool and should have had some of it.
They can not see the shop and get used to closing it. A draw would have been a good result – Villa has earned something, but they always make mistakes.
Wolves against a villa
November 10, 2019, 1:00 pm
I think the two wolves, especially if Diogo Jota gets going, will be too much. The movement and intelligence of Raul Jimenez make him a great player, so I think they will prevent it.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Liverpool vs. Manchester City – Sunday, from 4pm live in the Sky Sports Premier League; Kick off 4.30 pm
This is the game of games. Looking back on the games I looked forward to in the past, it was Man United's games against Liverpool, especially Anfield, Man United versus Man City, but those are the games of Anfield, I love the whole scenario of them Games.
They are difficult to understand and hard to read. It was a bad football game last time, but that's what excitement means for the best teams – City can not afford to lose it.
The Premier League would not be over, with a couple of draws and one defeat revealing it – it's possible with Liverpool's fixture list.
Liverpool vs Man City
November 10, 2019, 4:00 pm
The defensive weaknesses of Man City reinforce the game – you can only see goals in this game. The team of Pep Guardiola will not sit back, but they will stifle the serve for the first three of Liverpool and try to neutralize the full-backs.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were a long way off last week. Sadio Mane took the first three places and grabbed the winner of the game after death. Pep will deal with the pace of Mane and the charges of diving, but I can not see how these players will not be able to say that there are goals here.
Do City and Liverpool play tactics here? I do not think so. Liverpool is defensively vulnerable and not as good as last year, as we all knew, but they will be pretty happy with one point as he keeps everything going and progressing.
It's one of those games, after the miserable feeling of the last, which will give everyone a "wow" moment. Sit back and enjoy the ride – it could go either way, it could be a 5-4 or a 1-0, but I'm sitting on the fence until I see the startup teams.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (11/1 with Sky Bet)
Manchester United v Brighton – Sunday, 2pm
Normally, I think that would be an easy win, but for Manchester United this is not easy. Brighton starts to score more openly and get there. Brighton is more offensive than ever, so this is an open game.
I still think Graham Potter will change his style accordingly. Leandro Trossard came off the bench and made a difference. He is a disturbing and exciting player and will cause danger. These are the games that are important for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and you have to win these games to get back to the top 4.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
Charlie's earlier predictions …
Chelsea against Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace is a better site away from home. Roy Hodgson has done a great job, considering he has no striker in the books. Christian Bentekes goal record says it all, although Jordan Ayew scored four goals in this campaign.
Palace just trots away – Gary Cahill has improved. Wilfried Zaha likes to appear in these games. Mason Mount is out, but Christian Pulisic has two feet, a good balance and a great finisher. Chelsea had a wonderful comeback against Ajax – they should have done the job and not at the end.
Tammy Abraham is a bit cold and does not get into the areas that are important as such, but Willian has played well. I think Chelsea will come over the line, but it will be tight.
CHARLIE PROVIDED: 2-1 – RESULT: 2-0
Burnley v West Ham
Both teams are unpredictable. I thought Burnley would return to his old ways, but they beat Sheffield United. The defenders have work to do. West Ham suffered three defeats and would probably have had to equal Newcastle.
They are a talented team, but Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini have not produced yet. Robert Snodgrass has been her best player in recent weeks. They have to provide Sebastien Haller with early crosses, and they could get somewhere, but Burnley has basic knowledge again.
CHARLIE PROVIDED: 2-1 – RESULT: 3-0
Newcastle against Bournemouth
As is currently the case in Newcastle, you think these are win-win games for them. I know that Steve Bruce enjoys playing offensive football, but he can not do that with this team. Miguel Almiron is like a little whippet that can not slow down to cope.
The fans love him because he's full of energy, which I like about him, but the other stages of his game need to be sharp. Allan Saint-Maximin is clever and unpredictable, while Jonjo Shelvey is back in the team. When Newcastle wins, they move up to the top of the table.
Bournemouth can play well everywhere, as the game against Manchester United shows. They are a very dangerous side and will cause problems again.
CHARLIE PROVIDED: 2-2 – RESULT: 2-1
Southampton against Everton
Southampton has returned somewhat in terms of credibility. They did not play badly in the two matches against Man City, for which they gained credibility, but what did they get? Nothing. It has eliminated the embarrassment and annoyance while Everton is still vulnerable from home.
It is not a game with goals. Danny Ings and Nathan Redmond will pose a threat, but this could be Marco Silva's last responsible play if he loses – I think David Moyes would be a target when things are going badly for Everton. These teams should score goals with the vulnerable enemy defenses, but it will be a narrow victory.
CHARLIE PROVIDED: 1-0 – RESULT: 1-2
Tottenham against Sheffield United
Tottenham could have taken one point from Anfield – they took the lead in Everton and threw him away. Mauricio Pochettino's decision-making is a major concern for the Tottenham players.
He likes to shoot the full-backs, but Serge Aurier does not play well, while Danny Rose is everywhere. He disturbed something that was so solid for three seasons in Tottenham.
Harry Kane should be fit, but if not, where are you going? Sheffield United beat Burnley and they played great. They collapse, collapse and this football style disturbs the rhythm of the larger teams. I expect them to unsettle Tottenham and this will be reflected in the outcome.
CHARLIE PROVIDED: 1-1 – RESULT: 1-1
Norwich vs Watford
Do not let me start with that. We have the same problems with Norwich. They can score goals, but they allow it.
It's been a while since they met. People talked about Todd Cantwell and Norwich, but once you break it, you have goals? They have just announced losses, so it does not look like they will be launched in January.
They did not do that in summer, so there will be no difference if they do not do it in January. For Norwich it is a must-win scenario and we are already at this time. We say the same thing about Watford. What must Quique Sanchez Flores do to get her over the line?
Tory Deeney is about to get fit and Watford is starting to develop. This is also a must for them, so where do you get the bones out of this?
Watford did not play well at the weekend, but not bad – they are better than what they show. The way Norwich plays will please Watford, so I think their star players will challenge Norwich in this game.
CHARLIE PROVIDED: 1-2 – RESULT: 0-2
