Super Sunday Predictions

Goal 228?
Swansea v Arsenal

I am going to go with a comfortable win for Arsenal here. Swansea have a good defence and a great home record, however if Arsenal get their usual possession we know Swansea let teams play and aren't known for pressing players, and this could set things up, only if Arsenal can be clinical.

Arsenal could be relying on Thierry Henry for goals, but I don't think he will start so I am going to predict the Gunners' current stars will get the show started, then Titi to come on with Arsenal leading comfortably and score against the 35th Premier League club, having already bagged against all other 34.

Swansea 0-4 Arsenal

Newcastle v QPR
Can Newcastle continue their strong home form?
I am going to go for a home win here, despite QPR potentially being revitalised by the arrival of Mark Hughes. With Joey Barton suspended and QPR's recent lack of firepower they will struggle here. Newcastle are missing key players too however I feel have more depth, but will after look elsewhere for goals with Demba Ba absent. 

QPR have been linked with Alex (bottom left of picture), Wayne Bridge and Onouha this week, however I think they will need strikers too if they are to survive, lets face it, 0-0s won't keep you up. I am going to predict another blank for Rangers tomorrow too.

 Newcastle 2-0 QPR
Newcastle 2-0 QPR
