Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Man Utd

first_imgTottenham v Sheffield UnitedSpurs thumped Crvena Zvezda in midweek and it was great to see Son Heung-min score two after his involvement in Andre Gomes’ horrific injury last Sunday. But the 1-1 draw at Everton was another example of Spurs blowing a lead and they need to beat Sheffield United. It won’t be easy, as United are going great, but I have a feeling Spurs can do it.Dimitar’s prediction: 3-0. Comment Betfair Exchange Odds Burnley 11/8, Draw 11/4, West Ham 9/4 Liverpool v Manchester CityWhoever plays in goal for Manchester City won’t be too much of a concern for Pep Guardiola, as he has faith in Ederson’s understudy Claudio Bravo. The City manager will be aiming to come away from Anfield with three points on Sunday. It will be tight, and the first half could be a tactical chess match, but I’m backing City to nick this one and blow the title race wide open.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-2. Betfair Exchange Odds Wolves 20/21, Draw 11/4, Aston Villa 7/2 Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool & Man Utd Newcastle v BournemouthI had a feeling Newcastle would raise their game for the trip to West Ham last Saturday and so it proved with Steve Bruce’s men holding on to win 3-2. Bournemouth upset the odds by beating Manchester United but, with a long trip to the north east, I can see them coming unstuck against this gutsy Magpies team.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-0.

But you have to remember Ajax had two players sent off and ask why Chelsea let themselves go 4-1 down at home in the first place.

They showed more fight, and better organisation in going down 2-1 away to Man City last weekend, and I reckon they can bounce back again on Saturday. Everton are really struggling so I expect a draw here.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-1. Burnley v West HamLast week, the Clarets became the latest team to be outplayed at Brammall Lane, losing 3-0 to a strong Sheffield United team. Burnley should be much better at Turf Moor on Saturday but West Ham come to Lancashire needing a result.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-1. Leicester v ArsenalWhat is Brendan Rodgers telling his players in training? What are they eating? Whatever it is, the results are there for all to see with Leicester flying in the Premier League this season.

Man U v BrightonBrighton sit above United in the table but it’s still difficult for me to contemplate anything other than a home victory when the Reds play at Old Trafford.

Gay politician defends decision to ban referee from wearing rainbow wristband

first_imgAn out gay politician has backed the organisation in charge of Gaelic football’s decision to ban a referee from wearing a rainbow wristband during a match on Saturday.The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) blocked official David Gough, who is gay, from wearing the rainbow band at Saturday’s match between Tyrone and Dublin.Mr Gough says his gesture was meant to be a statement to combat homophobia in sport – but the Gaelic Athletic Association maintains it is committed to being “apolitical” ahead of the same-sex marriage vote in May.Now openly gay Teachta Dála (TD) Jerry Buttimer said he understood why the GAA banned Gough from wearing the wristband.Speaking to the Irish Daily Star, he said: “The GAA have been very proactive in battling homophobia and had the wristband only signified that I am sure the referee would have been allowed wear it.“But I can see where the GAA is coming from in relation to the referendum issue.” The GAA told the Irish Independent: “It’s a black and white issue. The association is apolitical.“Any member is allowed to have their own political views or opinions outside but Croke Park is not the place to make political gestures.“We have been very consistent on this issue“The GAA is apolitical and does not allow political gestures at our games. Once the referendum was called and the people are asked to vote then it becomes political.”Mr Gough said he felt “disappointed and let down” by the decision, adding: “They have over-analysed and over-politicised a very simple gesture.” He added: “I had received permission at noon on Friday but then received a number of calls on Friday night and another at 7.30am yesterday when they told me they would not allow it.“I was told flatly that I could not do it. I am disappointed, dismayed and feel I, and all gay members of the association, have been let down.”last_img read more
