Watford vs Liverpool: 3-1 Liverpool win

Merson said: “Welcome back to the Premier League, Claudio Ranieri! Watford have changed managers hoping to get a bit of a boost, but I think this game will be too much for them. Liverpool are scoring goals for fun, so I just don’t see how Watford can outscore them, while they most definitely aren’t good enough defensively to keep them out.

I’m going for a 3-1 Liverpool win. The away side have been a bit vulnerable at the back in recent weeks and this is not something you’d usually associate with them, but I don’t see anything other than a Liverpool win in this one.”

Prediction: Watford 1-3 Liverpool


Leicester vs Manchester United: 2-1 Leicester win

“Manchester United are really struggling, not just in the Premier League. They’ve won just two of their last six games in all competitions and it doesn’t look to me as if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows what his best team is, which is a massive worry,” the former Arsenal star told Sportskeeda.

“I’m fed up with predicting Manchester United wins in all honesty, so this time I’m going to go for Leicester City to get all three points.

The away team also have a lot of players out, with Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane ruled out due to injuries. Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly aren’t bad players, but that’s a defensive pairing that hasn’t played together regularly.

They are also set to come up against one of the liveliest center-forwards in the Premier League in Jamie Vardy, so it could get really tricky for Manchester United.”

Prediction: Leicester City 2-1 Manchester United


Southampton vs Leeds: 2-2 draw

“These are two struggling teams, but I think it will be a good game of Premier League football. Leeds United got a really good result against Watford before the international break, but Southampton are in desperate need of points and would’ve highlighted this game earlier in the season to get some points.

I like watching both these teams and looking at how they’ve played in recent weeks, I’m predicting an exciting 2-2 draw.”

Prediction: Southampton 2-2 Leeds United


Norwich City vs Brighton: 2-0 Brighton win

“Brighton played some really good football against Arsenal. It’s not like they created too many chances and were unlucky not to win or something, but they showed their class against one of the Premier League’s big sides and have been in good form this season.

I can’t see Norwich City winning a football match and I’m finding it hard to get them a win regardless of the circumstances. They are struggling really badly, so I see nothing but a comfortable Brighton win away from home.”

Prediction: Norwich City 0-2 Brighton


Aston Villa vs Wolves: 2-1 Aston Villa win

“Oooh, good game again! Aston Villa, in my opinion, are waiting to explode. I always keep saying that when you play the likes of Brighton and Aston Villa in the Premier League and come away with three points, they are really good wins.

Wolves miss way too many chances for my liking, although Raul Jimenez seems to be back in form. The goal he scored against Southampton was absolutely mindblowing, but this is a big derby game and I’m going to go for a Villa win.”

Prediction: Aston Villa 2-1 Wolves


Paul Merson Saturday Predictions:

Liverpool to win vs Watford

Leicester to win vs Man United

Southampton vs Leeds – Draw

Brighton to win vs Norwich

Aston Villa to win vs Wolves
