This weekend’s Premier League fixtures have been predicted by BT Sport
Manchester United get the Premier League action underway this weekend as they face Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium this afternoon.
The Red Devils will be looking to get back to winning ways after a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace last time out, but things might not go all their way on the south coast.
BT Sport have put their reputation on the line by trying to call every single fixture in the 2019/20 campaign – before a ball was even kicked – and ‘The Script’ suggests Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will struggle in the lunchtime kick-off.
‘The Script’ was generated using the help of football data and analysis experts Opta, Google and Squawka, picking the result of every match as well as key awards such as the Golden Boot and Golden Glove, and a 0-0 draw between United and Saints has been predicted.
Meanwhile, the supercomputer also suggests the points will be shared during the north London derby when Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates.
Unai Emery’s men saw their 100 per cent start to the season come to an end last time out against Liverpool, but Spurs also struggled in defeat to Newcastle so BT Sport are backing a 2-2 draw between the rivals.
Elsewhere, Manchester City are expected tone given a tough test by Brighton while Liverpool are predicted to cruise past Burnley at Turf Moor.
There could be goals galore when Watford visit Newcastle and West Ham welcome Norwich to London, but how accurate will these predicted results be?
