Your old side Arsenal are looking to make it 9 wins from the last 10 league games when they play Wolves on Sunday. What’s your prediction?
Wolves are going through a tough spell, but they have already shown enough in the early part of the season to tell me they’ll have no problems. I think Arsenal at home will go on and win this one though. They’re playing well at the moment, got a good result against Liverpool and I can’t see Wolves taking anything from the Emirates. I fancy Arsenal to win by a couple.
Where will Wolves finish this season?
They need to get back to winning ways soon just to stop this run of poor results. But I think it’s just a blip as they’re an excellent footballing team and everyone seems to know their jobs. I think they’ll be in and the middle of the table, which really is a wonderful season for any newly promoted side.
The other two promoted sides, Cardiff and Fulham are both in the bottom three. Will they be there at the end of the season?
Fulham losing at Huddersfield was a big blow. I know it’s early days but that will have been one that they were looking at as a chance to get three points. Cardiff have a great team spirit and work really hard for each other but I think they’re lacking that Premier League quality. It would be remarkable if somehow they come fourth from bottom this season.
Fulham have got goals in them at least and for me they’ve got a better chance of staying up. At this stage, Huddersfield, Newcastle, Burnley and maybe Southampton look like the other candidates who’ll be in the mix.
The standout match of the weekend has to be the Manchester Derby. How do you see that one going?
Not many United fans would have thought they’d be coming into this one off the back of a win against Juventus, but that was a fantastic result for them and they’ll have some confidence now going into the derby. But the way City are playing at the moment means you cannot go against them. I don’t think City will run away with it but I think they’ll have too much for United.
