Premier League Score Predictions: WhoScored vs oddschecker Gameweek 9

Our football expert Ryan Elliott takes on WhoScored in a head-to-head to predict the correct scores of every Premier League game this weekend.

Each week oddschecker football expert Ryan Elliott will be taking on WhoScored in a head-to-head to try and predict every correct score in the Premier League.

After a long international break we return to the Premier League action this weekend and our predictor league is closer than ever. Gameweek 8 saw WhoScored pick the only correct score of the weekend, but Ryan clung onto his lead with four correct results. There's now just one point in it as we head into gameweek 9's fixtures.

A reminder that we're awarding three points for a correct score, and one point for a correct result.

Newcastle Utd vs Chelsea

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 0-3

Chelsea's fantastic run looks likely to continue at St. James'. The Blues' markedly improved defence has been the foundation of their success, though they're also now the league's top scorers, and they'll prove too much for the Magpies.

WhoScored: 0-2

Chelsea have bizarrely won just one of their last six trips to St. James' Park but Frank Lampard's side are now on the right track after a slow start to the season.

Aston Villa vs Brighton

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-1

Villa's excellent start to the season sees them start this game as favourites, although Brighton are a better side than their points total suggests, and will still back themselves to earn something form their trip to Villa Park.

WhoScored: 2-1

This should be a tight game, but if the hosts can return from the international break in good shape they have the difference makers in attack to come away with a narrow win.

Tottenham vs Man City

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-2

City haven't dazzled in the league as of yet, and have only three wins to their name. Spurs, meanwhile, have build up some very impressive momentum, and will hope for at least a point on Saturday.

WhoScored: 2-1

City have kept just two clean sheets in seven league matches this season, so Tottenham will be confident of scoring here, and having won their last three Premier League games, Spurs could secure all three points for the fourth game running.

Man Utd vs West Brom

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 2-0

The Baggies aren't being blown away this season, although a lack of goals is really them. I can't see anything but a routine home win here.

WhoScored: 3-1

United have remarkably won only one of their last five home matches against West Brom and have failed to score in three of those but surely things can't get any worse for Solskjaer on Saturday, can they?


Fulham vs Everton

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-2

Fulham will be reeling after the disastrous finish in their defeat at West Ham, while Everton come into this on the back of three consecutive defeats. The Toffees should still have too much quality for Scott Parker's men.

WhoScored: 1-2

Richarlison's potential return could be key at Craven Cottage, but don't rule out a response from Ademola Lookman against his former club, even if it's not enough to earn a result.

Sheffield Utd vs West Ham

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 0-2

The Blades have really struggled in front of goal this season, and I'm expecting them to slump to a defeat against a West Ham side who have impressed me thus far.

WhoScored: 0-1

It's been a case of second season syndrome for Sheffield United, whose playing style has been somewhat found out and is currently leaving them short of creativity and therefore goals, so it's difficult to see an improvement against a now established West Ham side.

Leeds Utd vs Arsenal

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-1

Two sides who are incredibly inconsistent. Arsenal remain an enigma this season, though Leeds have also lost three of their last four. The spoils could well be shared at Elland Road.

WhoScored: 1-0

For all of Mikel Arteta's plaudits, Arsenal have still lost four of their last six Premier League matches and they have failed to score in three of their last four, only scoring a penalty in the other.

Liverpool vs Leicester City

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-2

This is where Liverpool's injuries catch up with them. Leicester are top of the league for a reason, and I can see Jamie Vardy terrorising their depleted back line.

WhoScored: 1-2

Rodgers lost both league games against Liverpool last season but arguably won't have a better opportunity to defeat Jurgen Klopp's side. Ending a depleted Liverpool's remarkable unbeaten streak at Anfield may also convince Leicester's players they can truly challenge for the title again.

Burnley vs Crystal Palace

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 0-1

Good luck staying awake for this one. Palace to emerge with the points after an inevitably drab affair.

WhoScored: 1-2

Without a clean sheet since the opening weekend, Palace still have plenty of work to do. While that should give Burnley some encouragement, the Clarets have lost their last two home games to The Eagles and have started very poorly.

Wolves vs Southampton

Ryan Elliott (oddschecker): 1-1

This looks an intriguing match-up between two good sides, and I can't split them. 1-1 looks a likely outcome.

WhoScored: 1-1

Wolves are unbeaten in their last four home matches against Southampton but it wouldn't be at all surprising to see the away side take a point. This is a real tough one to call between two well-coached sides.
