Chris Sutton has had bother predicting how most groups will do that season, however Leeds and Bournemouth specifically preserve proving him improper – so who will he again once they play one another on Saturday?

“Leeds and Bournemouth followers are each fairly indignant with my predictions and have been giving me an terrible lot of stick,” BBC Sport soccer knowledgeable Sutton stated. “Due to that, I hope they each lose this week.”

Sutton is making predictions for each top-flight sport this season in opposition to quite a lot of company.

For this weekend’s fixtures, he’s up in opposition to filmmakers Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson.

The American duo, who labored collectively on episodes of big-budget Marvel collection Moon Knight and Loki for Disney, co-direct, co-produce, co-edit and in addition co-star of their new movie, a supernatural sci-fi titled One thing within the Grime, which is in UK cinemas from Friday.

Moorhead (l) was additionally director of images for One thing within the Grime, whereas Benson wrote the script and used his personal condo as the principle location for the movie, which is on the market on digital obtain from the beginning of December

The pair say they aren’t precisely Premier League consultants however relished the possibility to pit their wits in opposition to Sutton, who they really feel may have starred as a villain in one in all their horror movies.

“We needed to google Chris,” stated Aaron. “However he does look very charismatic.

“He may very properly lead the fantastic UFO commune in Camp Arcadia from our film, The Limitless,” added Justin. “He would have made Hal, who I ought to add is just a little bizarre, if he may act and study some traces.”

Whereas Sutton is an everyday voice on the airwaves and in entrance of TV cameras, an look on the silver display has eluded him – thus far.

He’s open to gives for a biopic of his profession, and says he takes classes in beginner dramatics from his 606 co-host Robbie Savage – as if they’re wanted – however it’s a mission unlikely to snare Moorhead and Benson, at the least at first look.

“I performed baseball after I was a child after which did skateboarding and browsing,” added Justin.

“However neither of us actually know a lot about sport, even American sport, so if we made a sports activities film about Chris I feel it could be actually humorous for the viewers, due to how little we all know.

“It may additionally be form of creepy, like once you ask synthetic intelligence to create paintings. It will most likely be a extremely surreal illustration of sport, that does not make any sense.”

A bit like a few of Chris’ predictions, then. Serious about it, perhaps they’re the precise folks to inform his story in spite of everything.

SUTTON’S PREDICTIONS

Video games kick off at 15:00 GMT until in any other case acknowledged

SATURDAYLeeds 4-3 Bournemouth

I used to be solely simply out after I predicted that Leeds would lose 6-1 at Liverpool final week.

I took quite a lot of flak from Leeds followers following their win at Anfield however, as soon as once more, it was after the occasion. They had been pondering the identical as me earlier than the sport.

Severely although, I used to be happy for Leeds boss Jesse Marsch when he received that end result. I’ve by no means met him, and he bigs his crew up presumably an excessive amount of at instances after they’ve misplaced video games, however I get why he’s all the time attempting to be optimistic about his gamers.

That win will purchase him a little bit of time, not with the membership’s house owners, however with the Elland Highway crowd who had been on his again once they misplaced to Fulham of their final dwelling sport.

That goodwill will solely final if Marsch can again it up by beating Bournemouth, who had been woeful as they chucked away a 2-0 result in lose in opposition to Tottenham final day out.

However it’s a ok purpose to be optimistic about Leeds, and I’m going for them to win this one. Sadly for them, that normally means they lose.

Sutton’s prediction: 2-1

Aaron’s prediction: 2-2

Justin’s prediction: 2-1

Manchester Metropolis 2-1 Fulham

Fantasy Soccer has gone into meltdown since Erling Haaland received injured final week – he sat out final weekend’s win over Leicester and the midweek victory over Seville, however will he or will not he be again right here?

Both means, I feel Metropolis will win this one fairly comfortably. The one factor I wasn’t positive about was whether or not Fulham would handle a comfort aim – I’ve received Ederson in aim in my Fantasy crew so I’m going to say no, they will not.

Sutton’s prediction: 3-0

Aaron’s prediction: 5-1

Justin’s prediction: 4-0

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Brentford

Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper questioned his aspect’s aggressive edgeexternal-link after they had been thumped by Arsenal final weekend.

That could be a little bit of a fear – certainly a part of his job is to ensure his gamers are correctly motivated.

Off the again of Forest beating Liverpool of their final sport on the Metropolis Floor, I might have gone for one more dwelling win right here, however after what occurred in opposition to the Gunners I’m not so positive.

Brentford haven’t received away within the Premier League all season, in order that hardly makes me suppose they will take dwelling three factors both – it’s a huge cop-out however I’m going for a draw.

Sutton’s prediction: 1-1

Aaron’s prediction: 1-1

Justin’s prediction: 1-1

Wolves 2-3 Brighton

Wolves fought onerous for his or her level at Brentford final week, and I preserve saying they aren’t as dangerous a crew as their league place may recommend – however then they’re precisely that dangerous of their subsequent sport.

It’s a blow for them to be lacking Diego Costa, aka Mr Offended, up entrance after his crimson card in opposition to the Bees and their lack of targets means they’re all the time below huge stress in video games.

That is why I’m going for Brighton to win at Molineux, like they did on the finish of final season.

They produced an excellent efficiency to beat Chelsea and provides Roberto de Zerbi his first win as Seagulls boss. If they’ll repeat that show, they may get the identical end result this time.

Sutton’s prediction: 0-1

Aaron’s prediction: 1-2

Justin’s prediction: 1-0

Everton v Leicester (17:30)

Leicester are nonetheless within the backside three but it surely appears like they’ve turned a nook. They misplaced to Manchester Metropolis final week, however they gave the defending champions sport and their confidence is up in the intervening time.

Even so, I feel Everton are going to win this one. As we noticed once they beat Crystal Palace a few weeks in the past, if it’s going to occur for Frank Lampard’s aspect, it’s going to occur at Goodison Park.

Sutton’s prediction: 2-1

Aaron’s prediction: 3-2

Justin’s prediction: 1-2

SUNDAYChelsea v Arsenal (12:00)

Arsenal have received at Stamford Bridge in every of the previous two seasons however I’m not satisfied they may make it three in a row.

Rather a lot is dependent upon whether or not Bukayo Saka is match for the Gunners and the way Chelsea boss Graham Potter approaches the sport – like one in all his predecessors, Claudio Ranieri, he has been a little bit of a ‘Tinkerman’ along with his crew and ways not too long ago.

General Potter has executed properly although, and I do not suppose his aspect might be as dangerous once more on the again as they had been in opposition to Brighton final day out.

Sutton’s prediction: 1-1

Aaron’s prediction: 2-1

Justin’s prediction: 2-1

Aston Villa v Manchester United (14:00)

I irritated a number of Manchester United followers after I prompt to some callers on 606 final week that simply referring to them as United is a bit disrespectful when there are such a lot of different Uniteds on the market. A few of them had been actually nasty to me on Twitter.

So I’ll seek advice from Manchester United in full right here – so far as I’m involved, Newcastle United are above them within the desk, so they’re those who ought to simply be often called United proper now.

I’m not a petty man, although, so I’m not going to tip Manchester United to lose right here simply to upset their followers any additional.

Manchester United proceed to impress me below Erik ten Hag – I like what he’s doing with Manchester United, they usually preserve discovering a method to win video games, like they did in opposition to West Ham on Sunday.

Aston Villa received walloped by United at St James’ Park final weekend, and though I feel they are going to be higher in Unai Emery’s first sport in cost, I can see him coming unstuck in opposition to Manchester United.

Sutton’s prediction: 0-1

Aaron’s prediction: 1-2

Justin’s prediction: 1-2

Southampton v Newcastle (14:00)

I like what Eddie Howe is doing at United. They have a very nice steadiness to the crew, and are stingy defensively.

Howe has not simply purchased that enchancment with the gamers he has signed – he’s getting way more out of the United gamers who had been already at St James’ Park when he arrived 12 months in the past.

United striker Callum Wilson is one in all them, and I feel he should go to the World Cup with England. The concern with Wilson is all the time his harm issues, however he’s match and completely flying in the intervening time.

Southampton are very up and down – I say that on a regular basis, however the very best instance is how good they had been within the second half in opposition to Arsenal not too long ago, in contrast with how dangerous they’d been earlier than the break.

That makes it very troublesome to foretell what we are going to see from Saints week-to-week, whereas United are on such a excessive in the intervening time they usually have discovered some consistency that’s serving to them get these good outcomes.

Each time Miguel Almiron scores for United, Manchester Metropolis midfielder Jack Grealish has to eat extra humble pie after he joked concerning the Paraguayan on the finish of final season – and I would not be stunned if Grealish is tucking into one other slice on Sunday night time.

Sutton’s prediction: 0-2

Aaron’s prediction: 1-1

Justin’s prediction: 1-3

West Ham v Crystal Palace (14:00)

Crystal Palace are one other crew who have not received away within the league this season, and it is onerous to see that altering right here.

West Ham had been unfortunate in opposition to Manchester United they usually have received six in a row at London Stadium in all competitions.

My company this week Aaron and Justin make movies so they may admire this subsequent line – I’m going with the Hammers to win once more and make that run an impressive seven on the trot.

Sutton’s prediction: 2-1

Aaron’s prediction: 2-1

Justin’s prediction: 2-0

Tottenham v Liverpool (16:30)

Son Heung-min’s harm is very dangerous timing for Tottenham in the intervening time with two different attacking gamers, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski, already out.

The one bit of fine information for Spurs followers is that I’m backing Liverpool to win, and I’ve been improper about just about each Liverpool end result this season.

I truthfully do not know what to anticipate from both crew right here as a result of pretty much as good as Liverpool have been in Europe over the previous couple of weeks, they’ve been as poor within the Premier League to lose to Nottingham Forest after which Leeds.

As for Spurs, properly they appear to specialize in beginning video games badly then battling again to win. Whether or not they can do this with out Son is one other matter although.

Each managers, Antonio Conte and Jurgen Klopp, have been moaning so much about how exhausted their gamers are so, based mostly on that, this might be a boring sport between two drained groups.

I do not see it turning out that means myself, although. Each groups are so erratic that they may finish the sport fully in another way to the way in which they begin it, so it will likely be thrilling to look at.

I’m going for Liverpool to edge it, though I’ve to confess that may be a huge guess.

Sutton’s prediction: 1-2

Aaron’s prediction: 1-2

Justin’s prediction: 2-2

Chris Sutton, Aaron Moorhead & Justin Benson had been talking to BBC Sport’s Chris Bevan.

How did Sutton do final week?

Sutton received seven appropriate outcomes from 10 matches, with no precise scores, giving him a complete of 70 factors.

He beat rapper Dapz on the Map, who received 5 appropriate outcomes with no precise scores for a complete of fifty factors.

That extends Sutton’s lead over his company to 8-5, though he – wrongly – thinks he ought to get an additional level for beating two Leicester Riders gamers in week 12.

“I’m thus far forward now, I’m beginning to suppose there must be a handicap system in place,” Sutton stated. “However I do suppose I ought to get some extent for each visitor I beat, and I’ve crushed 9 of them in complete this season.”
