Premier League (Wk 31)

The good old Premiership is back after a short break, and is as welcome as a turkey sandwich at the Cratchit household on crimbo day.

The early action tomorrow kicks off with the Hammers against Man U. West Ham haven't lost in their last 4 league games and look a different prospect to the pantomime team they were at the beginning of the year. Man U are just doing enough without really convincing anyone - time for Fergie to nip down to Argos (it still exists, doesn't it?) and upgrade that hairdryer. The bookies are giving 13/5 the draw.

What's going to be served up at the Emirates this weekend? The Gunners last 6 games have been, W D W W D D, so does that mean they'll now win 3 on the roll? Blackburn, on the other hand, haven't registered a win in their last 6 and I don't expect that to change tomorrow.

Chelsea are back up and running, with max points from their last 3 games, and I suppose it's a little too early in the campaign to completely write them off. They've got a tough one away to Stoke tomorrow but I think they'll take it by the odd goal.

One team that's boring me shitless at the moment is Man City, and for all their hype and publicity, I still think they are an average side of underachievers. Tevez is a doubt for the game at home to Sunderland so I wouldn't be surprised if it ended in a draw - the bookies are offering 3/1.

Spurs, obviously distracted by their run in the CL, haven't been on the best run of late - no wins in the last 3. They're away to Wigan tomorrow who are propping up the table, and badly in need of a 3-pointer. With Harry's men focused on Real, I think the home side have a chance.

Time to embarrass myself again with some Prem Predos:

W Ham 2 2 Man U
Arsenal 3 0 Blackburn
Stoke 1 2 Chelsea
Wigan 2 1 Spurs
WBA 1 1 Liverpool
Birmingham 1 2 Bolton
Everton 2 1 Villa
Newcastle 1 1 Wolves
Fulham 2 0 Blackpool
Man City 1 1 Sunderland
