A correct result (picking a win, draw, or defeat) is worth 10 points. The exact score earns 30 points.

Leeds United vs West Ham United, 9 pm
The first game of GW12 should give us an exciting evening. Both teams have had a good run. Not everyone expected them to have done well. Both teams have what it takes to win but I will settle for a draw.
I expect a low scoring affair, The home team have found scoring difficult this season.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Aston Villa, 1.30 pm
The premier league never fails to disappoint. And this fixture should be an exciting one. Aston Villa’s game against Newcastle was postponed which may hand a slight advantage to the away team. On the other hand, Wolves suffered a heavy defeat against Liverpool which could have a psychological effect on the team. Both teams do have a similar pattern and I feel Wolves would edge this one, even without Jiminez.
The away team has been impressive in attack and is still fresh from having the week off. I see a victory for Villa in a low scoring game.
Newcastle United vs West Bromwich Albion, 4 pm
Another team that has an advantage having rested in GW11, is Newcastle and this advantage should come in play against an away team that hasn’t been consistent this season.
There is no saving West Brom this season.
Manchester United vs Manchester City, 6.30 pm
The Manchester derby is always an interesting match. Both teams may not be challenging for the title this season but this match will be very important as they find a way to keep pushing.
Expect a lot of goals.
Everton vs Chelsea, 9 pm
I thought Everton would challenge for the title this season. They started well, beating Tottenham and getting a draw against Liverpool. But the team has faded away losing to the likes of Leeds and Southampton while struggling against Fulham and Burnley.
I see the Toffees losing at home.
Everton to grind out a victory in a very tight game. Or both teams go on a scoring spree

Southampton vs Sheffield United, 1 pm
Sheffield United is the only premier league team yet to win a game this season in the premier league. And I believe they’ll have to wait for at least one more game.
Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Hotspur, 3.15 pm
Another London derby for Mourinho’s Tottenham. I predict victory to the away team but it won’t be that easy.
I write this with a heavy heart, but Tottenham is so good right now.
Fulham vs Liverpool, 5.30 pm
Even when Liverpool play badly or aren’t at their best, they find a way to win games and I’m giving them a win in this fixture.
Another team that can’t be saved.
Arsenal vs Burnley, 8.15 pm
The Gunners had a smooth ride in the Europa League group stage but struggle in the premier league. Mikel Arteta must find a way to instill the same determination in the first team that would turn up in the premier league. I expect Arsenal to win although I have no idea where the goals would come from.
Arsenal to just about edge this game.
Leicester City vs Brighton & Hove Albion, 8.15 pm
Brighton are party spoilers so this game won’t be an easy fixture. But I feel the foxes will do enough to win.
Leicester City should easily see off the threat of Brighton.
Let’s see who wins this week’s Premier League predictions. Good luck Mates!
