Here's a plan to make your weekend: spend a few minutes predicting Premier League scores and you could win £10,000. You could buy a fair few easyJet tickets with that.
The free FourFourTwo Pick & Predict app (available for iPhone and Android) costs nothing but allows you to win up to £10,000 a week by forecasting the scores of each Premier League match. And if money isn't your motivation, you also get points for predicting the correct outcome, and even more for the correct scoreline.
Points mean pride as you zoom up the FourFourTwo Pick & Predict league table, which anyone can enter. And as Pick & Predict also lets you create pools or mini-leagues, we’ve got an office one going – and we’re giving you one staffer's predictions each week. We’ve already heard from Harriet Drudge, Gregg Davies, Ben Clark and James Maw, so who’s next?
Global Digital Editor Gary Parkinson was last weekend’s wooden-spooner with a frankly awful set of predictions (only correctly foreseeing the wins for West Ham and Liverpool). But he’s still in third place – and besides everyone else is either ill or on holiday – so what does the digichief recommend?
Sat 12.30pm Sunderland 0-2 Arsenal
“Sunderland can’t buy a win – it’s illegal – and Arsenal have seven clean sheets in the last eight. Moyes’ only hope is a lack of effort from the visitors.”
Sat 3pm Manchester United 2-0 Burnley
“Might not be easy for United after a tiring week but Burnley are limited opponents. It’s time Zlatan scored, after one in his last seven starts.”
Sat 3pm Middlesbrough 1-1 Bournemouth
“Squit-or-bust for Boro, with two points and four goals in the last seven games. Bournemouth look comfortable but this smells like a draw.”
Sat 3pm Tottenham 2-0 Leicester City
“Spurs are chasing multiple trophies while Leicester are clearly prioritising, and poor on the road. Pochettino’s men will be the more focused.”
Sat 3pm Watford 2-0 Hull
“Watford are balanced (W3 D3 L3 F13 A13), Hull hopeless: one point from seven games since their back-to-back opening wins. Long slog ahead.”
Sat 3pm West Brom 1-1 Manchester City
“The Baggies usually bag – only Bournemouth and Boro have denied them. Pep is struggling to juggle, and it’s Barça on Tuesday.”
Sat 5.30pm Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool
“It’s 14 league games since Palace kept a clean sheet, Liverpool have kept 1 in 11. Benteke header, obviously, but more action up the other end.”
Sun 1.30pm Everton 2-0 West Ham
“Everton have started a wobble while West Ham have corrected theirs, but Bilic’s boys have only won once outside London since March’s late Goodison comeback.”
Sun 4pm Southampton 0-2 Chelsea
“Solid contenders for eighth, Saints need to win this sort of game to break that glass ceiling – but Chelsea are gathering pace… as long as they don’t play JT.”
Mon 8pm Stoke 2-0 Swansea
“Early cliché test for Bob Bradley. He’s still seeking a winning formula but Stoke have found their mojo. Bony and Allen scoring would be a kick in Swansea’s swingers.”
