Parker’s Premier League Picks: Manchester United to win, but Tottenham and Liverpool to have a hard time
Jose Mourinho, Manager of Tottenham Hotspur laughs prior to the Premier League match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux on December 27, 2020 in Wolverhampton, England.
Paul Parker has offered his choices for five huge Premier League games this weekend, and he believes that it will be a surprise upset for Liverpool and a win for Manchester United versus Aston Villa.
The Eurosport specialist likewise believes that Spurs will have a bumpy ride holding off Leeds United, and Arsenal will win at West Brom to put Sam Allardyce’s nose out of joint.
With Manchester City returning from their coronavirus problems, Parker also thinks they will grab a win at Chelsea.

Manchester United are favourites entering into this match, regardless of their inconsistency.
In reality, I think Jack Grealish might get learnt a bit. For my money, he spends too much time on the floor and not sufficient remaining upright.
If he wishes to prove himself then he requires to pull his socks up and stop revealing off how big his calves are. If he’s truly so strong, then he needs to be able to stand up to the deals with and attention from other gamers.
I understand it’s a little a cliché, but I like viewing Leeds this season. Even if they do not win, they are amusing. When it comes off, it is terrific to see. It’s brave.
There’s a real connection in between the players and the supervisor, and they truly made their promotion to the Premier League. They are a team that the league wants to have back with their history and the fans they bring with them.
What Jose Mourinho will require to do is attack the area that Leeds leave behind them. In order to stop themselves being overrun, however, they will require discipline in their defence and their midfield. The key might be for Mourinho to inform his players that they can’t relax if they go one ahead, something that has actually cost them recently. They can’t simply let Leeds come onto them and wish to hold on.
The Chelsea win for Arsenal was a big one. It was a hard win for the Gunners to follow up, and to do so with a tidy sheet at Brighton was twice as remarkable. In some ways it resembled going back to the George Graham days.
However this is a check out to a Huge Sam group: he won’t wish to lose, and with West Brom where they are, they can’t pay for to come up short in numerous more video games if they want to avoid the drop.
Allardyce’s ego requires some reprieve, and he’ll be desperate to put Arsenal’s nose out of joint again, but I think Arteta’s side will keep this run going.
After their coronavirus break out, Manchester City will have gamers back, but they are still missing out on a reputable striker.
Chelsea, however, provide you liberty when you check out, and there will be openings at the back to exploit.
I think that this will be an away win for City as they challenge to return towards the top of the table.
Liverpool are having a hard time in attack this season. There has actually constantly been something instinctive about the manner in which they play, which is a strength, but right now their goalscorers just aren’t using the exact same threat.
They aren’t having the exact same impact, and teams have actually discovered to manage the front 3 better.
Maybe Thiago Alcantara will alter how they play. They have a pedestrian midfield and that hasn’t been a problem, however now they have someone to connect the defence to the midfield, and from the midfield to the attack. Roberto Firmino did the latter, but he’s begun to battle with that duty.
