Premier League 22/23: Game Week 8 Predictions

Bruno Lage, Manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Pep Guardiola, Manager of Manchester City

The Premier League is now in its eighth game week for the 22/23 season, so here we have our predictions for how we think the fixtures will play out.

Last week the entirety of the United Kingdom was saddened by the news of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which resulted in every single Premier League fixture in game week 7 being postponed until further notice.

Similarly this week, some fixtures will not be taking place. Manchester United, Leeds United, Crystal Palace, Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea and Liverpool all won’t be in action – however we still do have seven fixtures taking place.

So with fixtures to be played, it’s only apparent that we should showcase our predictions. Here are our Game Week 8 predictions for the 22/23 Premier League season.

Steven Gerrard‘s side take on the youthful Southampton in one of the Friday night fixtures. This one is tough to call, so we’ll go for a draw.

Prediction: Aston Villa 1 – 1 Southampton


Nottingham Forest vs Fulham

A battle of the newly promoted sides. Fulham have looked sharp thus far and we think they’ll win this one.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 1 – 2 Fulham


Wolves vs Manchester City

A game where we could see Diego Costa‘s return to the Premier League. But let’s be honest, there should only be one clear winner here.

Prediction: Wolves 1 – 3 Manchester City


Newcastle vs Bournemouth

Eddie Howe faces his former club in this tie. Newcastle look sharp this campaign and we can see them putting a few past Bournemouth.

Prediction: Newcastle 3 – 0 Bournemouth


Tottenham vs Leicester

Leicester City are in serious trouble. They currently sit bottom of the league and things could certainly get worse against Spurs. How long will Brendan Rodgers last in charge?

Prediction: Tottenham 2 – 0 Leicester


Brentford vs Arsenal

This should be one of the fixtures of the weekend, with both sides having excellent starts to their seasons. Brentford at home look like a force and we believe they’ll nick something against the Gunners.

Prediction: Brentford 1 – 1 Arsenal


Everton vs West Ham

Finally, the Toffee’s take on the Hammer’s in a game where both sides are desperate for some points. However – we predict David Moyes will come out on top.

Prediction: Everton 1 – 2 West Ham
