Liverpool do what they always do to Tottenham; City stroll to victory; another twist in relegation battle

It’s getting to crunch time at the top and bottom of the table, but that won’t be an issue for Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race this weekend, while the battle to avoid the drop is set for more drama as Leeds get dragged into the mire after wins for Everton and Burnley in this week’s Premier League Predictions.

City, fresh from crashing out of the Champions League, host Newcastle in what should be a fairly routine win for Pep Guardiola’s men. Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool face a tougher test, on paper at least, against Tottenham – but they will do what they pretty much always do against Spurs – win!

Down at the bottom end of the table there’s mixed opinion on Everton’s trip to Leicester which could, in turn, leave Leeds in the lurch as they drop into the drop zone after defeat at Arsenal. A rejuvenated Burnley are set to edge away from the pack with yet another victory.

Taking us on this week is Cian McCluskey, drummer for Irish indie-rock outfit, modernlove. Cian takes on our man Rob – but how many will either get right in this week’s Premier League Predictions?
