Hi, my name is Chumsy and I’ll be giving Premier League predictions this season. 

Gameweek 9 features OTUNBA BLANCO and THINTALLSOLA

OTUNBA BLANCO started supporting Arsenal due to his love for Marc Overmars from the Dutch national team and he has been supporting Arsenal since 1999. His best Arsenal moment was qualifying for the UCL final against Villarreal; the Riquelme spot-kick miss was good music to his ears. But he still doesn’t forget losing the Carling cup finals to Birmingham city… “such a cheap goal from Obafemi Martins,” he says.

OTUNBA BLANCO started supporting Arsenal due to his love for Marc Overmars from the Dutch national team and he has been supporting Arsenal since 1999. His best Arsenal moment was qualifying for the UCL final against Villarreal; the Riquelme spot-kick miss was good music to his ears. But he still doesn’t forget losing the Carling cup finals to Birmingham city… “such a cheap goal from Obafemi Martins,” he says.

THINTALLSOLA says “I’m in awe that I’ve never asked myself this question, honestly I love everything about the club, its tradition has been incredible, I got to know the invincibles and thereafter, so the beautiful style of play that involves every man caught my eyes. And I love this team, not for the good time alone, I understand that win, lose, draw, football is a game of passéon(Passion).”

“I’ve been supporting Arsenal since 2005, my dad was an Arsenal Fan, sometimes he’s at work and wouldn’t be chanced to watch the match, when he comes home he’d ask me what was Arsenal’s score and who scored, so Arsenal became a common bond for us.”

“My best Arsenal moment I think it was ending the trophy drought with the FA cup, but I liked the Arsenal VS AC Milan game, it gave me goosebumps…oh the pride of London.”

His worst moment as an Arsenal fan was against Barcelona, at Camp Nou. “We won the first leg 2-1 at the Emirates, and Van Persie was red-carded at Camp Nou (second yellow card just for kicking a ball) I cried that day”.

CHUMSY (AND GUESTS) PREMIER LEAGUE PREDICTION for GAMEWEEK 9

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

CHUMSY’S FORECAST

Saturday 21 November 2020

Newcastle vs Chelsea, 1.30 pm

Games that follow the international break aren’t usually that easy. That notwithstanding, Chelsea players seem to be gradually blending and they should do enough to win this game.
Chumsy: 1-3

Otunba: 1-2

Sola: 0-2

Aston Villa vs Brighton & Hove Albion, 4 pm

Aston Villa was superb against Arsenal and shouldn’t have any worries against a struggling Brighton side
Chumsy: 3-1

Otunba: 1-1

Sola: 2-0

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City, 6.30 pm

This game has goals written all over it; whether it happens or not, we expect both teams to put up a positive display. And I feel Tottenham may edge this one.
Chumsy: 2-1

Otunba: 1-2

Sola: 0-1

Manchester United vs West Bromwich Albion, 9 pm

Something notable about the red devils is how consistent they are at being inconsistent. This makes it difficult to point out where they would finish at the end of the season. But this game should be 3 points to the home team.
Chumsy: 1-0

Otunba: 2-0

Sola: 2-0

Sunday 22 November 2020

Fulham vs Everton, 1PM

Results haven’t gone Everton’s way in the last 3 games and here is another tricky away game. Fulham also has struggled to win games and it doesn’t seem as though they would kick off with a bang against the toffees.
Chumsy: 1-3

Otunba: 1-2

Sola: 0-3

Sheffield United vs West Ham United, 3 pm

The Hammers (and Aston Villa) were two teams that struggled last season but have been excellent so far. On the other hand, Sheffield was a joy to watch last season but they now struggle. I still expect the home team to get something out of this.
Chumsy: 1-1

Otunba: 1-1

Sola: 0-2

Leeds United vs Arsenal, 5.30 pm

Another team that is consistently inconsistent is Arsenal. You get a world-class performance from them this week then next week they play as if they’ve never played football. These mixed results may prove crucial at the end of the season. I’ve backed them to win at Leeds, not because they have what it takes to beat the home team, but simply because they are good at pulling surprises.
Chumsy: 1-2

Otunba: 1-2

Sola: 0-3

Liverpool vs Leicester City, 8.15 pm

This game had a Liverpool win written all over it before the International break, but with the injuries to the red’s defence plus covid-19, it looks like the away team would have a chance.
Chumsy: 1-2

Otunba: 2-2

Sola: 2-0

Monday 23 November 2020

Burnley vs Crystal Palace, 6.30 pm

Burnley snatched an away draw last time against Brighton. This game, however, is against a Palace team buzzing from that big win against Leeds.
Chumsy: 0-2

Otunba: 1-0

Sola: 0-2

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Southampton, 9 pm

These two teams have what it takes to win this match. Not too strong defensively, their attack has been tested and trusted so far. Picking a winner is a bit difficult on this one.
Chumsy: 1-1

Otunba: 2-1

Sola: 0-0

Let’s see who wins this week’s Premier League predictions. Good luck Mates!
