FRIDAY, JAN. 13: It has certainly been one of the most enthralling Premier League seasons in recent years.

Pundits had written off Arsenal after their appalling start and decided that the contest would be a two-horse race between City and United

Back came Arsenal with a remarkable turnaround thanks to the tenacity of manager Arsene Wenger.

Chelsea seem to be suffering from the blues and Liverpool are benefitting now from the return of their talisman and leader Steven Gerrard.

But it is Harry Rednapp’s Tottenham that is capturing the imagination stirring memories of the all-conquering Spurs sides of the sixties.

It’s a Premier League that you can’t take your eyes off.

Just when you think football is predictable you get the shocks of the last league fixtures.


Aston Villa v Everton
Villa should be boosted by the arrival of Robbie Kean on a 6-week loan deal from Los Angeles Galaxy. Well beaten last home game by Swansea,Villa will be hoping to build on their 3-1 win in the FA Cup by seeing off an Everton side who aren’t playing badly but can’t seem to find the back of the net.
BDA Sun prediction: 2-1

Blackburn v Fulham
Keane’s Blackburn will have to dispose of Fulham otherwise the tanks will be on the manager’s lawn come Monday. Fulham with one away win this season will no doubt be buoyed by their recent win over Arsenal.
BDA Sun prediction: 1-2

Chelsea v Sunderland
Martin O’Neil has revitalized Sunderland and they could well upset a Chelsea side smarting after their home defeat to Villa.
Rumours of dressing room unrest at Stamford Bridge with reports suggesting senior players are unhappy with boss Andre Villas-Boas, although denied by John Terry, have not helped the Blues esprit de corps.
BDA Sun prediction: 1-1

Liverpool v Stoke
Liverpool are back to winning ways after their 3-0 league defeat to Manchester City but Stoke will be a tough nut to crack.
Stoke have won their last two away games at Blackburn, and at Gillingham in the FA Cup, and are no pushovers.
Steven Gerrard’s return to fitness has boosted Liverpool and he emphasised his importance to the team on Wednesday night scoring the only goal to beat City in the Carling Cup semi-final first leg.
BDA Sun prediction: 1-0

Man Utd v Bolton
United will have the jitters with this game as the Blackburn debacle is still fresh in their minds. Bolton, despite their impressive away win at Everton, are meeting a sleeping giant with a terrible resolve in the form of Sir Alex.
BDA Sun prediction: 4-1

Tottenham v Wolves
Tottenham are taking all before them at present which is pleasing the neutrals no end. It’s good to see the usual suspects with their noses out of joint as the unfancied Spurs challenge the accepted order.
Wolves, without a league win since early November, won’t relish coming up against Spurs at this time.
BDA Sun prediction: 3-1

West Brom v Norwich
West Brom are badly in need of a win but Norwich are no slouches coming off an away league win at QPR and thumping Burnley in the FA Cup.
BDA Sun prediction: 0-2


Newcastle v QPR
Geordies have their belief back after their 3-0 shock win over Manchester United. QPR, without a win since mid November, could be deeper in trouble after this encounter.
BDA Sun prediction: 2-0

Swansea v Arsenal
Swansea play attractive football and come off a 2-0 away win at Villa.
Perversely, this may be their undoing as it may allow Arsenal to play their natural passing game.
Henry could put in a cameo, and if he keeps on scoring, according to Wenger, his statue outside the Emirates ground may have to made bigger. n
BDA Sun prediction: 0-1
