Gameweek 2 Premier League predictions

This weekend is the Premier League’s 30th anniversary, and we have a full slate of games to look forward to. Manchester United’s soap opera continues on Sky Sports on Saturday, Chelsea hosts Tottenham in the best game of the weekend on Sunday, and Liverpool returns to Anfield on Monday to round up what should be a fantastic weekend of football.

Of 2022/23 Premier League season, 90min’s predictions for gameweek 2 is here.

Aston Villa vs. Everton, Saturday, August 13

Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard will square off for the first time as managers when Aston Villa visit Everton in a midday kickoff on Saturday. Following a summer of significant investment, Villa started the season in the worst conceivable way, with a 2-0 loss to relegation rivals Bournemouth. Everton came up just short against Chelsea, and while they showed the tenacity and drive that kept them up last year, they’re still lacking in talent. Expect the hosts to win this one.

Leicester vs. Arsenal

Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium, looking to win both of their opening Premier League games for the third time in four years. Last Friday’s season-opening triumph against Crystal Palace showcased Mikel Arteta’s side’s frantic forward flair and tenacious defense. Brendan Rodgers perceives a gloomy atmosphere in camp. The Foxes have yet to acquire a new player this summer, and Youri Tielemans may be looking to impress potential future employers.

Newcastle vs. Brighton

With a journey to Brighton, Newcastle will complete one of their longest away days of the season. Following good mid-table finishes the previous season, both sets of supporters entered the new season full of anticipation and were suitably rewarded with opening weekend victories. The Seagulls’ development this season is dependent on turning draws into victories and improving their home form, and we anticipate them to win their first match at the Amex this time.

Bournemouth vs. Manchester City

At the Etihad Stadium, Premier League winners Manchester City will face Championship runners-up Bournemouth. If playing City in the present wasn’t difficult enough, Scott Parker’s Cherries have never beaten their opponents in the past, losing 15 of their 17 games, including all ten in the Premier League. Don’t anticipate the south coast side’s fortunes to improve anytime soon.

Leeds vs. Southampton

Southampton will try to climb off the bottom of the standings with a win over Leeds. The Saints’ season is already in shambles due to allegations of discontent in the dressing room, though Jesse Marsch has quiet some of his detractors after the Whites defeated Wolves last week. Ralph Hasenhuttl could use a win this early in the season.

Fulham vs Wolves

With a win at Wolves, Fulham can maintain their rapid return to the Premier League. Bruno Lage’s team is coming off a first-day defeat and the loss of club captain Conor Coady to Everton. His counterpart in the other dugout may make Molineux the happier of the two by Saturday evening.

Brentford vs Manchester United

Erik ten Hag’s quest for his first win as Manchester United manager continues on Saturday evening against Brentford. Many eyes will be on how the Dutchman and his charges respond to last week’s humiliating setback at the hands of Brighton, while Christian Eriksen returns to the city where he spent six months earlier this year. The Bees fought back to secure a 2-2 draw at Leicester last week and could cause problems for their normally larger opponents once more.

On Sunday, August 14th, Nottingham Forest vs West Ham

On Sunday, Nottingham Forest will face West Ham in the Premier League for the first time in the twenty-first century at the City Ground. Traveling Hammers fans will be looking for more following a lackluster effort in last week’s loss to Manchester City, while Forest fans will be feeling the same way after failing to record a shot on target against Newcastle. David Moyes’ men should be able to stave off Steve Cooper’s newcomers here.

Chelsea vs Tottenham

When Chelsea and Tottenham face off at Stamford Bridge, their early championship credentials will be put to the test. Spurs lost all four games against the Blues last season, scoring a total of zero goals, and their lone win at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League history occurred when Antonio Conte was in command. Chelsea should escape loss against their bitter rivals thanks to their historical weight and a fresh defensive steeliness.

On Monday 15 August, Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Liverpool will want to gain ground on their championship rivals by beating Crystal Palace at home on Monday night. The Reds looked wobbly away at Fulham last week, but Jurgen Klopp defended his team by insisting they can’t and won’t play flawlessly every week. Expect them to improve when they return to Anfield.
