Dear Pikked players,
Game week 6 was dull, wasn’t it? We are hoping that this was just a lull in the season and the fixtures in game week 7 will please us again. We are here this week to give you Pikked’s game week 7 predictions.
Game Week 6 Roundup
Manchester United vs Chelsea was the fixture we were all looking forward to in game week 6. Nevertheless, the encounter did not thrill at all. Marcus Rashford was put through on goal from a well-timed pass from Bruno Fernandes, yet a save form Chelsea’s new goalkeeper with his foot kept the ball out.
Marcus Rashford is being branded as a darling in the media for fighting against the British political hierarchy. Yet, his efforts of the pitch are not thwarting his performance on the pitch. He was Manchester United’s standout player and almost won the game late on with a strike heading for the top corner, nonetheless, the brilliant Mendy tipped it round the post to keep the game level.
Chelsea had a stonewall penalty turned down, when Harry Maguire manhandled Cesar Azpilicueta in the area. VAR was checked but astonishingly nothing given. Apart from that, the game was dreary. Both teams looked nowhere near like they are going to challenge this season. Poor game.
Leeds surprised the Premier League landscape on the first of the weekend fixtures. Bielsa’s side is bringing excitement to the league and the biggest surprise package is Patrick Bamford. Bamford has been slandered throughout his career as a lazy forward who cannot finish. Touted by some as a championship player, he is starting to prove his critics wrong. A superb hat-trick which displayed that Bamford can score all types of goals propelled Leeds up the league. Aston Villa, on the other hand, were very disappointing, there perfect start to the season is finished.
Poor Pikking again.
In our game week 6 predictions, we chose the following:
Aston Villa to beat Leeds
Brighton to beat West Brom
Crystal Palace to beat Fulham
One correct prediction for us, maybe we should stop trying to give you tips each week…
Game week 7 predictions
Manchester United to beat Arsenal
A controversial choice we know, but we are yet to pick Manchester United. The Red Devils usually show up against The Gunners. Mikel Arteta’s team have looked uninventive lately and the form of Aubameyang is worrying. Therefore, we think Manchester United have shown enough through Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford to hurt Arsenal.
Tottenham to beat Brighton
Tottenham is the inform team in the Premier League at the moment. Against Burnley, on Monday night they showed that they can win ugly. Kane and Son continued with their great partnership and we think Spurs could run riot this weekend. We would love to see Bale, Son and Kane start for Mourinho’s side. This could be the weekend where they flex their muscles again. No hope for Brighton!
Fulham to beat West Brom
We love Scott Parker here at Pikked. He always gives an honest opinion of his players performance. Fulham has been well below par this season, but we think that Parker’s grit could push The Cottagers over the line this weekend. West Brom, on the other hand, secured an impressive draw with Brighton and have picked up points against Chelsea already this season. Nonetheless, we are backing Mitrovic to put his slow start to the season behind him and score a brace this weekend. Fulham win.
Game week 7 please be good to us!
We are hoping that our predictions come into fruition this weekend. Albeit ultimately, we are hoping for a more exciting weekend all round.
Happy Pikking and regards,
The Pikked team.
