Aye! It’s me Bob Friendly, I’m back for more saves and goalkeeping excellence. Ah, it is that time of year again – when I hide behind the sofa every night. No I’m not talking about scary movies at Halloween, instead the football highlights on a Saturday night which are bound to see some spooky goalkeeping that we should all avoid.
Without further ado here are my predictions for the Halloween football fest.
Chelsea v Liverpool
That Jose Mourinho has had a bit of a nightmare, although Liverpool have been pretty ghastly too. I think Jose will produce more tricks than treats for Chelsea fans this weekend – 1-2.
Crystal Palace v Manchester United
David De Gea gave United fans a bit of a scare earlier this season, but has found form recently. United’s team of stars will be too powerful for Palace – 0-2.
Manchester City v Norwich
Poor Norwich. Halloween came early for them after conceding six against Newcastle. Now they have to travel to top-of-the-league Manchester City – 4-1.
Newcastle United v Stoke City
Got to feel sorry for Newcastle’s goalie. He has stood no chance with that defence in front of him. Stoke are a bit Jekyll and Hyde, but Jack Butland has been in great form and could win them this game – 1-2.
Swansea v Arsenal
Not a fun fixture this for the Gunners. Swansea have beaten Arsenal in 50% of their games so this will be close – 1-1.
Watford v West Ham United
Is it just me or are hornets scary creatures? I just don’t think the Super Saver leader, Huerelho Gomes, will keep Watford in this one – 1-3.
West Brom v Leicester
How about that Leicester team, comeback kings or what? They won’t need luck this time round they might just carry on that good form – 0-2.
Everton v Sunderland
The black cat can be an evil omen, but not even Big Sam will prevent Everton from running out winners – 3-1.
Southampton v Bournemouth
A real battle of the South Coast. I think this will end in a bit of a shipwreck for the Cherries – 3-0.
Goalkeeper to watch: Jack Butland, Stoke City
Here’s how our Super Savers are standing at the moment – let’s hope Jack does better next week as he’s the one to watch!
