Pikked GW6: Aston Villa To Continue Form
Updated: Jan 7
Dear Pikked Players,
Game week 5 was full of joy, but that’s in the past, we are here to give you Pikked’s game week 6 predictions.
Game Week 5 Roundup
The Merseyside Derby didn’t disappoint. Four goals, a red card and a snapped ACL. Did we mention that a 93rd-minute winner from Jordan Henderson was chalked out for being offside? Yet, Saido Mane’s arching run was in line with the last defender to the naked eye. Nevertheless, the Toffee’s remain above their neighbours in the league after the 2-2 draw.
Spurs looked scintillating, yet, a contender for goal of the season thwarted their celebrations. Manuel Lanzini’s strike stunned Mourinho’s men and David Moyes threw some 'dad dance' moves on the touchline. West Ham are unbeaten in three.
Manchester United regained similar form from the back of last season, blowing the magpies away at St. James’ Park. Bruno Fernandes ran riot again, helping to silence the critics who call him ‘Bruno PENandes.’ He did, in fact, miss his first penalty wearing red yet managed to rally the troops to a flattering 4-1 victory.
Pikked cannot predict…
In our game week 5 prediction we predicted the following:
Tottenham Hotspur to beat West Ham
Chelsea to beat Southampton
Sheffield United to beat Fulham.
How wrong were we… Let’s hope the following predictions come into fruition this week.
Game Week 6 Predictions
Aston Villa to beat Leeds.
Aston Villa are on a great run of form. The midfield trio of Barkley, McGinn and Luiz look one of the most balanced in the league. Martinez, Mings and Konsa make up an impressive spine, whilst Jack Grealish is good enough on his day to get into any side in the league. It could be an exciting season for Villa this year and although Leeds will give them a fierce challenge, we think the claret and blue will come out on top.
Brighton to beat West Brom.
Graeme Potter’s men have played some easy on the eye, expansive football this season. With Ben White coming back from Leeds, Trossard running the channels and Maupay hitting the back of the net regularly, the Seagulls look good value. West Brom, on the other hand, have struggled to pick up points on the road. A win for Brighton, surely?
Crystal Palace to beat Fulham.
Fulham are not firing on all cylinders since being promoted to the dizzy heights of the Premier League. Yet again, Scott Parker will be thrilled with his teams dominant second-half performance against Sheffield United. Palace are however different competition to Sheffield United. They are rigid at the back and have fluidity up top. Wilfred Zaha can hurt any team in the league, and we expect he will hit Fulham hard. A win for Roy Hodgson’s men!
