Well. Here we are. 34 prediction weeks, 38 Premier League games. From August 2016 to May 2017. The end of the league season is here. I will save my thoughts on the season for another post after the play off finals. What I will say now, though, is that this season has been better than last season with great promise for next season.
There is one more day of Premier League action for me to apply my prediction skills. Before that, there is the review of the previous set of fixtures. Usual points apply, three points for a spot on prediction, one point for just the right outcome and zero points for getting it wrong.
Man City 3-1 Leicester (1 point – actual score 2-1)
Bournemouth 2-2 Burnley (0 points – actual score 2-1)
Middlesbrough 0-1 Southampton (1 point – actual score 1-2)
Sunderland 1-2 Swansea (1 point – actual score 0-2)
Stoke 0-2 Arsenal (1 point – actual score 1-4)
Crystal Palace 2-2 Hull City (0 points – actual score 4-0)
West Ham 2-1 Liverpool (0 points – actual score 0-4)
Tottenham 1-1 Man Utd (0 points – actual score 2-1)
Chelsea 2-1 Watford (1 point – actual score 4-3)
Arsenal 3-0 Sunderland (1 point – actual score 2-0)
Man City 3-1 West Brom (3 points)
Southampton 1-1 Man Utd (1 point – actual score 0-0)
Leicester 1-2 Tottenham (1 point – actual score 1-6)
13 ties in total, 4 completely wrong outcomes, so 9 out of 13 correct outcomes is cool. 11 points in it all. Not great, but at least it’s better than nothing.
One more time for the 16/17 to see if I can do well at this prediction gig.
Arsenal 3-1 Everton
Burnley 2-1 West Ham
Chelsea 4-0 Sunderland
Hull 1-3 Tottenham
Leicester 2-2 Bournemouth
Liverpool 5-0 Middlesbrough
Man Utd 0-0 Crystal Palace
Southampton 1-1 Stoke
Swansea 2-1 West Brom
Watford 1-4 Man City
There is little for teams to fight for in the games today. I hope that won’t make for a boring lady day of the season. Whether that will turn out to be the case, though.
Let’s see how it goes.
