EPL: Dimitar Berbatov predicts Man United vs Man City, Everton vs Chelsea, Arsenal vs Burnley
A former Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has predicted that Chelsea will play a draw against Everton when both teams clash in tonight’s Premier League tie at Goodison Park.
Berbatov also backed Manchester City to beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
According to him, Arsenal will defeat Burnley at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Providing his predictions, Berbatov was quoted by Metro UK as saying, “Oh my god! Coming from the last match, if United play anything like they did in the first half when they take on City, I don’t see anything good coming for them in this one.
“If they correct themselves and they don’t let two goals in and wake up to start playing, they should be fine. Solskjaer has an impressive record recently, and he’s had the better of Pep. In this one though, coming off the back of the result midweek, I think it will be difficult. Man United 1, Man City 2.”
Commenting on the Everton vs Chelsea game, Berbatov said, “This is an interesting one, Ancellotti coming up against his former club. Chelsea are playing good football, they do have a weak side, however.
“DCL is scoring goals for Everton, and as a striker when you’re in good form, you want the next game to come as soon as possible because you feel powerful, in shape, prepared and you have the feeling that you can score a goal from anywhere on the pitch. I think he can cause problems for Lampard’s side, so they will have to do a job to keep him quiet. Everton 1, Chelsea 1.”
Speaking on the Arsenal vs Burnley match, Berbatov said, “Well, if Arsenal don’t win this against Burnley, no disrespect to Burnley, but they don’t deserve to be in the top half of the table fighting for anything.
“I will back Arsenal in this one though, they need the win, and if they don’t get it, then even more pressure will be on them and Arteta. Arsenal 2 Burnley 0.”
The kick-off time for Man United vs Man City is 6:30 pm, while that of Everton vs Chelsea is 9 pm and Arsenal vs Burnley is 8:15 pm.
