The Premier League is now in its third week for the 22-23 season, so here we have our predictions for how we think the fixtures will play out.
Despite being just two weeks in, the Premier League has thrown some major surprises at us already. Manchester United under new manager Erik ten Hag have been nothing short of abysmal, losing both fixtures including a hammering at Brentford which sees them sit dead bottom of the table.
We had an absolute classic between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge, which ended with both Thomas Tuchel and Antonio Conte being sent off after something that can only be described as a little bit more than a handshake.
We look forward to what the rest of the Premier League holds, but for now, we look short-term to game week 3 and how that will play out.
So, with this – here are our predictions for game week 3 in the Premier League 22-23 season.
Tottenham vs Wolves
Antonio Conte’s side have looked great in the opening fixtures, in contrast – Wolves have not. We can only see this ending one way with goals aplenty for Spurs.
Prediction: Tottenham 3 – 0 Wolves
Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa
Patrick Vieira‘s new-age Palace side look motivated, well-drilled and do play some excellent football. They’ve had a mightily tough start to the campaign but we think things will turn in their favour against Villa.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 2 – 1 Aston Villa
Everton vs Nottingham Forest
Prediction: Everton 1 – 1 Nottingham Forest
Fulham vs Brentford
Brentford look the real deal this year – which reflects in the fact that they’re currently sitting in the Champions League places two games in. It’s early days, but we anticipate they’ll add more points to the board against Fulham.
Prediction: Fulham 1 – 2 Brentford
Leicester City vs Southampton
Another tough one to call, with both sides having not won a fixture yet. We’ll go safe and say this one will end up as a draw.
Prediction: Leicester City 1 – 1 Southampton
Bournemouth vs Arsenal
Mikel Arteta‘s side are a force to be reckoned with this year and we anticipate the Gunners will once again prevail in GW3.
Prediction: Bournemouth 1 – 3 Arsenal
Leeds United vs Chelsea
Another tasty affair awaits Chelsea this weekend as they travel to Leeds United. They’ll be gutted the dropped two points so late on against Spurs – so will most likely come out fighting from the off and we predict a Thomas Tuchel win.
Prediction: Leeds United 1 – 3 Chelsea
West Ham vs Brighton
West Ham won’t have envisioned their season starting the way it has given last year’s campaign and we predict it could get even worse for David Moyes. Brighton tactically look fantastic and we think they could nick another fine result but this time at the London stadium.
Prediction: West Ham 1 – 2 Brighton
Newcastle vs Manchester City
Despite Newcastle starting well – they haven’t faced a side of City’s calibre yet. Pep Guardiola‘s side look hungry for domestic glory again this season and we think they’ll batter Newcastle.
Prediction: Newcastle 1 – 4 Manchester City
Manchester United vs Liverpool
Finally, the biggest tie of GW3 – which United fans will be heavily anxious to see how it unfolds. We can see a repeat of last year’s ties, with Liverpool dominating proceedings.
Prediction: Manchester United 0 – 3 Liverpool
