EPL: Berbatov predicts Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City Boxing Day games
Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, has predicted some of the games that will be played in the Premier League on Boxing Day.
Some games have been called off because of the COVID-19 outbreak and injuries.
However, big teams like United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea will still be in action.
The Gunners travel to Norwich, looking to establish themselves in the top four.
“Norwich is still in major trouble and I don’t see them safe this year. Arsenal are going strong, Arteta and everyone in the team must be pleased, when they were bottom after three games I don’t think many people saw them doing what they have done recently. Unless there is a major upset here I think this is a pretty straightforward one. Prediction 0-2,” Berbatov told Betfair.
On Aston Villa vs Chelsea, he said: “This will be a good game. Chelsea was held to a draw last time out and I sense another setback here. Steven Gerrard has really hit the ground running at Villa and getting a win in this one would be a great Christmas present to give to the fans. Prediction 2-1.”
United, who saw two of their fixtures postponed, travel to Newcastle.
“Newcastle are going to be building their team for the Championship, I said it last week and I’m even more sure of it. The fans will be really up for this one, they will make it tough, they also need the points desperately. That being said they are leaking goals easily and United can take advantage of that if they stay concentrated. If United have an ambition for big things this season they have to win these matches. Prediction 1-3,” Berbatov added.
