Southampton had their first league win of the season last time out at home to Villa but are yet to pick a point up away from home. They are averaging 3 goals against every game and conceded the majority of these goals at the end of each half.
Prediction : 2-1

Norwich have drawn both league games so far but have only scored twice all season home and away. Liverpool have yet to keep a clean sheet this season and have failed to score in the opening 30 mins of a game.
Predictions : 0-1

Reading v Newcastle   KO 15:00
Bottom side Reading have only picked up 1 point from the opening 4 games of the season. They will be in buoyant mood after a 3-2 comeback win at QPR in the cup midweek and will be itching to get their first win of the season. Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has just signed a new 8 yr contract and will be looking to reward his employers by extending Newcastle's unbeaten league run, which currently stands at 3. They kept their first clean sheet last time out and will be looking for more of the same against a struggling Reading side.
Prediction : 1-2

Stoke v Swansea   KO 15:00
Stoke may have only lost 1 league game this season but have yet to win in any competition. There aren't many goals when Stoke are around with only one game having more the 2.5 goals. Swansea have not won a league game since 25th August and have lost their last 2 whilst not scoring in either game. The season started well for the Swans who scored 8 without reply in the opening 2 games but have struggled since, scoring 2 and letting in 7.
Prediction : 1-0

Sunderland v Wigan   KO 15:00
Draw specialist Sunderland welcome Wigan to the Stadium of Light. Sunderland are unbeaten this season drawing all 4 league games and winning both cup games. They have yet to score in the second half of a league game this season. Wigan come into the game with no league win in 3 and 2 defeats in the trot, they did have a 4-1 win at West Ham in the cup midweek.
Prediction : 1-1

They have won their last 2 league games but have yet to keep a clean sheet but have scored in all games.
Prediction : 3-1


Sunday 30th September

QPR v West Ham   KO 12:45

Win less QPR take on a West Ham team unbeaten in 3. QPR fans are yet to see a league goal for their team at Loftus road, whilst West Ham have not scored away this season. Doesn't have the making of a classic this.
Prediction : 0-0
