Charlie Nicholas’ Premier League score predictions (4th October)

Charlie Nicholas has given his predictions for all of this weekend’s Premier League fixtures and it’s fair to say there are some eye-catching scores.

The former Celtic, Arsenal, Aberdeen and Scotland footballer currently works as a pundit for Sky Sports and most every weekend appears on the Soccer Saturday show to commentate on games and get involved with debates.

See what he went with below and on the next few pages…

WEST HAM v CRYSTAL PALACE

The score Charlie Nicholas has predicted for this game is: 3-1

He said on Sky Sports’ website: “This is a nice London derby. Crystal Palace are slightly better away from home, but it’s hard to tell sometimes. Wilfried Zaha looks like he may be over the transfer situation, while Mark Noble is playing better than he ever has. It was a good point for West Ham at Bournemouth when normally they would have folded. This is the best West Ham side I have seen in a long while and I think Sebastian Haller will be the fans favourite, finding the net again.”

SOUTHAMPTON v CHELSEA

The score Charlie Nicholas has predicted for this game is: 1-1

He said on Sky Sports’ website: “This is another good test for Southampton, who were decent against Tottenham. Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have been praised, and rightly so. Abraham has earned his first England call-up, rightly so too. Chelsea are sitting in seventh which is acceptable – it is tight at the moment. It will be a season full of ups and downs for the Blues and with lots of games coming up for their youngsters, it may just take its toll on occasions.”

NEWCASTLE v MAN UTD

The score Charlie Nicholas has predicted for this game is: 2-1

He said on Sky Sports’ website: “Steve Bruce goes up against his old team – it is an intriguing one. The last time Newcastle were at home, they were dreadful. You have to give the fans something at home, they are an amazing bunch of supporters. Manchester United are sitting in 10th with two wins in seven, scrambling for points at home. There is a lot of demands in place but Solskjaer has his plan for the youth and the club. His vision will take time. One week, Newcastle will surprise everybody, and this may be this week. If they hit them and are aggressive, they can shock Manchester United.”

BRIGHTON v TOTTENHAM

The score Charlie Nicholas has predicted for this game is: 1-1

He said on Sky Sports’ website: “What do we say about Tottenham? They produced a battling performance with 10 men against Southampton, but they are struggling, and Bayern ruthlessly picked them apart. Brighton on the other hand, if Leandro Trossard is fit, could cause problems. Unfortunately for Graham Potter, the results have not been overly impressive at Brighton. New managers do take time, but they can cause Spurs problems. Tottenham are there for the taking at the minute – there is no togetherness and Brighton could squeeze them in this.”

NORWICH v ASTON VILLA

The score Charlie Nicholas has predicted for this game is: 1-2

He said on Sky Sports’ website: “Villa’s defence is struggling to cope with the better players in the Premier League. They may not score goals, but I believe there is goals in the team. You can flip John McGinn and Jack Grealish away from home and Wesley is a threat. Norwich are a good watch as we know. Defensively they will leak goals, but how far can Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki take them, alongside Emiliano Buendia and Marco Stiepermann? They give you everything they have, but the first three are the key to going forward – Villa could take advantage of that.”
