Beat Sav in our weekend Premier League Prediction Competition


Can you beat Planet Sport football ambassador Robbie Savage in this week's edition of our Premier League prediction competition?

After the disruption and distraction of last week’s League Cup Final, normal Premier League service resumes this weekend with a full quota of ten games for us to predict in Planet Sport’s Beat Sav competition.

With only eight games, last week’s edition was even closer than normal, with tight leaderboard topper jointly by James Hamilton and Andrew Senior, who both called two correct scores and five other match results in their respective 11-point hauls.

Not for the first time, that proved way too much for Planet’s Sport’s football ambassador Robbie Savage, whose 5-point tally was the same as all four rival Planet Sport teams, but was still beaten by more than 41% of other entrants.


  1. 11 pts James Hamilton (2 correct scores, + 5 match results)
  2. 11 pts Andrew Senior (2 correct scores, + 5 match results)
  3. 10 pts 4 entrants 

To find out how you measured up against Robbie and everyone else, then just visit the leaderboard page here for all the latest weekly and overall updates.


  1. 121 pts Tipstrr (18 correct scores, + 67 match results)
  2. 109 pts Robbie Savage (14 correct scores, + 67 match results)
  3. 104 pts PlanetSport (12 correct scores, + 68 match results)
  4.   89 pts Football365 (9 correct scores, + 62 match results)
  5.   77 pts TEAMtalk (4 correct scores, + 65 match results)

The competition remains open to all to enter your predictions for Week 19, which gets under way when the six 3.00pm kick-offs get under way on Saturday, March 2nd.

Entry remains dead easy and completely free, and all details can be found here

Week 19 predictions

The predictions of the five teams are listed below, so if you think you can do better, then just visit the competition page to enter your own predictions.

Brentford v Chelsea

  • Tipstrr: 1-2
  • Robbie: 1-2
  • Planet Sport: 1-3
  • TEAMtalk: 2-1
  • Football365: 2-1

After Everton’s 10-point deduction was reduced to just four, only Nottingham Forest stand between Brentford and 18th-placed Luton, who have a game in hand. Monday’s 4-2 reversal at West Ham was the Bees’ 12th defeat in 15 league games, and they can expect another tough assignment against a Chelsea team who responded well to last weekend’s League Cup Final disappointment with their midweek 3-2 win over Leeds in the FA Cup. 

Latest Betting:

  • 15/2 Correct Score 1-2
  • 11/10 Chelsea win

Everton v West Ham Utd

  • Tipstrr: 2-0
  • Robbie: 2-1
  • Planet Sport: 1-2
  • TEAMtalk: 2-1
  • Football365: 1-1

Everton are winless in nine league games since stringing four victories together before Christmas, and although they have picked up a point in five of their last six, Sean Dyche will be desperate to see his team convert hard-earned draws into a win or two. They should fancy their chances against a West Ham team who had conceded 11 goals in three straight defeats before turning the tide with Monday’s 4-2 home win against Brentford.

Latest Betting:

  • 17/2 Correct Score 2-0
  • 17/20 Everton win

Fulham v Brighton

  • Tipstrr: 3-2
  • Robbie: 1-0
  • Planet Sport: 1-2
  • TEAMtalk: 1-0
  • Football365: 1-2

Fulham scuppered a few accas with last weekend’s unexpected 2-1 win at Old Trafford, which should set them up nicely for this home clash with Brighton, who have won just five of their 20 EPL games since September, and just two of their last 11 on the road.

Latest Betting:

  • 20/1 Correct Score 3-2
  • 17/10 Brighton win

Newcastle Utd v Wolves

  • Tipstrr: 1-2
  • Robbie: 2-0
  • Planet Sport: 1-2
  • TEAMtalk: 2-2
  • Football365: 1-1

Newcastle’s rollercoaster season has seen them either scoring goals for fun or leaking them like a rusty tap, with last week’s 4-1 drubbing at Arsenal making 23 goals conceded in nine league games (W2, D2, L5). they will have their work cut out against a Wolves team that seems more effective away from Molineux, claiming the scalps of Brentford, Spurs and Chelsea on their post-Christmas travels.

Latest Betting:

  • 11/1 Correct Score 1-2
  • 14/5 Wolves win

Nottingham Forest v Liverpool

  • Tipstrr: 1-4
  • Robbie: 0-1
  • Planet Sport: 1-2
  • TEAMtalk: 1-3
  • Football365: 0-3

Forest can be a handful at the City Ground and although they have lost six of their 13 games there (W4, D3) five of those defeats were by the just odd goal. Liverpool arrive buoyant from Sunday’s dramatic League Cup Final success against Chelsea, and even with their squad depleted by injuries, Jurgen Klopp has enough young talent to eke out another vital win here. 

Latest Betting:

  • 16/1 Correct Score 1-4
  • 40/85 Liverpool win

Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace

  • Tipstrr: 3-1
  • Robbie: 2-0
  • Planet Sport: 2-1
  • TEAMtalk: 4-1
  • Football365: 2-0

The occasional blip aside, Spurs have been impressive at Tottenham Stadium this year, so Ange Postecoglu will be keen to put their most recent home defeat to Wolves behind them. It will be interesting to see how long Oliver Glasner’s honeymoon period lasts since he took over from Roy Hodgson -his team did everything asked of them in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat of Burnley, but this trip across the capital represents a big step up.

Latest Betting:

  • 9/1 Correct Score 3-1
  • 1/2 Spurs win

Luton Town v Aston Villa

  • Tipstrr: 0-3
  • Robbie: 2-2
  • Planet Sport: 1-5
  • TEAMtalk: 2-3
  • Football365: 2-3

Luton look best-equipped of the bottom three to avoid relegation, and their enterprising style that has seen them find the net in each of their last 13 EPL games has won them plenty of admirers, if not quite enough to climb clear of the drop zone. They might well find a way to breach Villa’s defence also, but the visitors also possess enough attacking potency to give the home defence too much to cope with on Saturday evening.

Latest Betting:

  • 14/1 Correct Score 0-3
  • 4/5 Aston Villa win

Burnley v Bournemouth

  • Tipstrr: 1-2
  • Robbie: 1-2
  • Planet Sport: 0-2
  • TEAMtalk: 2-2
  • Football365: 0-1

Two points from eight league games since Christmas is a record that has relegation written all over it for Burnley, and having accrued just 13 points from their 26 games it’s hard to see where they will get the additional 20+ points probably needed to avoid the drop. That said, Bournemouth are also winless in seven league games (three draws), so this could easily go either way.

Latest Betting:

  • 7/1 Correct Score 1-2
  • 10/11 Bournemouth win

Manchester City v Manchester Utd

  • Tipstrr: 4-0
  • Robbie: 3-0
  • Planet Sport: 5-1
  • TEAMtalk: 3-1
  • Football365: 4-1

Manchester United finally ran out of get-out-of-jail-free cards when they were beaten by a late decider at home to Fulham on Saturday. Their often fragile defence can expect to be put to the sword by their City rivals, who have been having to grind out a few results recently, but will find this the perfect stage to rekindle their goalscoring potency.

Latest Betting:

  • 14/1 Correct Score 4-0
  • 2/7 Man City win

Sheffield Utd v Arsenal

  • Tipstrr: 0-4
  • Robbie: 0-3
  • Planet Sport: 0-6
  • TEAMtalk: 1-4
  • Football365: 0-3

Having shipped 15 goals in their last four home league games, including five in each of their last two, the last thing Sheffield United need is the arrival of a rampant title-chasing Arsenal team who have score 25 goals in their last six league games, including six at West Ham and five at Burnley on their last two road trips. It would be no surprise to see both teams continue in the same vein here.

Latest Betting:

  • 10/1 Correct Score 0-4
  • 2/11 Arsenal win
