Dapo Olajuwon’s EPL prediction: Game Week 14

29-10-2022 

🦊 LEICESTER VS MAN CITY 💎 

Leicester seem to have found some rhythm but in their last two games convincingly and they are about to experience a hiccup here. Man City are going to outscore them even if they play well because the Cityzens have got goals in every department, including the Goalkeeper who is capable of providing assists as he did in their last league game. I think this is going to be a high-scoring affair. 

PREDICTION: 2 

TIP: LEI 2-4 MCI 

RESULT: LEI 0-1 MCI

🍒 BOURNEMOUTH VS TOTTENHAM ⚪ 

Bournemouth have lost their last two league games and I’m beginning to think that they have lost their winning formula or probably tired and dried up on goals. Tottenham got eliminated from the Champions League in the midweek after having their winning goal ruled out by the VAR. They will be tired but again, have some fire in their belly and react to the elimination. The problem with the Spurs is that they don’t score a lot of goals which has dragged them down a bit. I think this will be a low-scoring affair and I expect them to win this game but I don’t trust them anymore with all my heart. 

PREDICTION: 2X 

TIP: BOU 0-1 TOT 

RESULT: BOU 2-3 TOT

🐝 BRENTFORD VS WOLVES 🐺 

Both teams lost by a wide margin last time out. Brentford lost 4-0 to Aston Villa, the same way as Wolves lost to Leicester. The difference between the two clubs here is that Wolves do not score many and their goals are hard to come by which is contrary to Brentford. For this reason, this makes Brentford the favorite team in my book. Also, the Bees are playing at home in the presence of their fans. I’m sure Frank Thomas’s boys will react to that great loss and get something out of this game.

TIP: BRE 2-1 WOL 

RESULT: BRE 1-1 WOL

🔵 BRIGHTON VS CHELSEA 🔵 

Brighton are not in form at the moment having picked up only one point from their last four games. Now I think they are having difficulty adapting to Roberto De Zerbi’s style of football. They are facing Chelsea right after they played against Man City which is not a good run of fixtures for them. It is hard for me to make a case for them because I can’t see them getting anything out of this game. Chelsea almost snatched a victory against Man Utd last time out but it ended in a 1-1 draw – courtesy of Casemiro’s stoppage time equalizer. They also went on to secure their qualification in the Champions League in the midweek which is a boost for their morale going into this game. The Blues are going to win this fixture but they might have a little bit of trouble from the Seagulls here. 

PREDICTION: 2 

TIP: BHA 0-2 CHE 

RESULT: BHA 4-1 CHE

🦅 CRYSTAL PALACE VS SOUTHAMPTON ⛔ 

Southampton have suddenly flipped their form and become good after their loss against Man City and are now unbeaten in three games. They surprised me by getting a point against Arsenal last time out. I give some accolades to Ralph Hasenhüttl because the Saints have stopped conceding goals anyhow. I don’t know what he did to his backline and how he did but I’m impressed prior to their last three games. Crystal Palace, on the other hand, got ripped apart by Everton last time out. They couldn’t find a way through, got frustrated and lost it. Patrick Vieira would have looked into that defeat and been asking for more from the Eagles. I believe they will react to that defeat, as they play at Selhurst Park – where they usually give their opponents a good game, by getting something out of this game. 

PREDICTION: 1X 

TIP: CRY 1-1 SOU 

RESULT: CRY 1-0 SOU

⚫ NEWCASTLE VS ASTON VILLA 🦁 

These two teams won their last game convincingly. Aston Villa put four goals past Brentford at home right after the departure of Steven Gerrard while Newcastle beat Tottenham away from home. Now it is the Magpies who play at home here and their fans will make a difference. Aston Villa have got a new manager, Unai Emery, who would be in charge of this game. Usually, a team gets a new bounce when they get a new manager but I’m not sure if Villa recognize this. Newcastle are a good team and it is difficult for me to say they won’t get anything out of this game. In fact, I expect them to win. 

PREDICTION: 1X 

TIP: NEW 2-1 ASV 

RESULT: NEW 4-0 ASV

⚪ FULHAM VS EVERTON 🔵 

Fulham had a good game last time out against Leeds Utd while Everton also got an excellent result against Crystal Palace. Everton have got Dominic Calvert-Lewin back in the team leading the line and Alex Iwobi is covering ground for the Toffees. I think this is the game that will determine what they are made up of as they travel to Craven Cottage. Fulham are so accustomed to their field that it makes me think that they can beat anybody there except the big six. Also, they will be playing at home in front of their fans which will be a boost for them. I think the Cottagers will get something out of this game.

TIP: FUL 2-1 EVE 

RESULT: FUL 0-0 EVE

🔴 LIVERPOOL VS LEEDS UTD ⚪ 

Liverpool were stunned by Nott. Forest last time out unexpectedly. Nobody saw that coming and I’m sure Jürgen Klopp will be asking more from his boys. I’m confident that we will get a reaction from them here and put a win on the table. Leeds Utd are on a poor run having lost their last four games. So coming up against a Liverpool side that was shocked in their last league game is just going to extend their poor run to make it 5 consecutive losses. All I can see is Liverpool victory and I feel it will be a big win. 

PREDICTION: 1 

TIP: LIV 4-0 LEE 

RESULT: LIV 1-2 LEE

🔴 ARSENAL VS NOTT. FOREST 🎄 

Nott. Forest surprised the whole world with a massive win over Liverpool last time out. So the question now is “Can they build on it or continue from where they left off”? In soccer, you cannot always be lucky because it doesn’t work like that. Arsenal dropped two points in their last league game against Southampton and went on to lose in the midweek in the Europa League. Mikel Arteta and the Gunners will be looking at this game as the perfect one to get back to winning ways and keep the morale high. 

PREDICTION: 1 

TIP: ARS 2-0 NFO 

RESULT: ARS 5-0 NFO

👹 MAN UTD VS WEST HAM 🛠 

West Ham seem to be waking up from sleep and will be focused on frustrating the Red Devils here and get something out of this game. David Moyes will surely set up his team to be difficult to beat which could make it result in a cagey game. Man Utd, on the other hand, will be confident going into this game after a draw against Chelsea last time out in the league. I think their morale is high now and they have some beliefs. They will be aiming for a win and it is not going to come easy. They will have to be the better side here to get what they want.
