Murray Brothers' Soccer Saturday Super 6 predictions for January 21st2012
Everton v Blackburn
Andy: 2-1 - "Blackburn have been scoring but just can't seem to keep a clean sheet."
Jamie: 1-1 - "Everton are struggling to score goals, combined with a very poor home record this season and Blackburn will be on a high after last week's win."
Fulham v Newcastle
Andy: 1-1 - "Fulham are pretty good at home but I like Newcastle this year so I'm going to go with a 1-1 draw."
Jaime: 0-0 - "Fulham are always difficult to beat at Craven Cottage and will be keen to improve on last week's effort at Blackburn. The Newcastle bandwagon rolls on without super Demba Ba!"
QPR v Wigan
Andy: 1-2 - "That's a huge match, a six-pointer, but I'm going to go for a 2-1 for Wigan. QPR are going to be going for it and Victor Moses is going to pop up and score."
Jamie: 2-1 - "It's Mark Hughes' first home game in charge so you got to expect a big performance from QPR."
Stoke v West Brom
Andy: 2-0 - "Stoke should keep a clean sheet and West Brom are struggling to score goals so I'm taking a Stoke win."
Jamie: 1-0 - "Stoke seem to be back on form defensively and it's always tough to get three points at The Britannia. West Brom have lost the last three."
Sunderland v Swansea
Andy: 2-1 - "I want goals in that one for Fantasy Football but I don't know if I'm going to get them. Swansea are good value this year and are going to be on a high after beating Arsenal. However, I'm going to take 2-1 Sunderland."
Jamie: 2-1 - "Martin O'Neill has the Midas touch! Great result for Swansea against Arsenal but they have struggled away from home and I reckon Sunderland will edge it."
Wolverhampton v Aston Villa
Andy: 1-1 - "Villa are struggling for goals and that's got a 1-1 bore draw written all over it."
Jamie: 1-1 - "Midlands derby is bound to be keenly contested but it has draw written all over it for me. Queue a goal feast now!"
