The international break has finished which means the return to top-flight football – I know it feels like an eternity!
While many have placed their wildcards in their fantasy football teams and tinker away like they are Claudio Ranieri – footie5 pundits Jermaine Jenas and Sam Quek turn their attention to another big week in the Premier League.
Spurs, Arsenal, Man United, Chelsea and Everton all feature in this week’s chosen footie5 matches between the two pundits.
With Javi Gracia the first managerial casualty since the season started, could the classic new manager syndrome hit Arsenal hard – and with that Sam and Jermaine’s prediction of an easy win for Unai Emery’s side? Or will Quique Sanchez Flores’ return to Vicarage Road be a bittersweet moment?
Don’t forget you can select any match in the Premier League, Football League, Scottish Premiership and Scottish Football League.

Here are this weekend’s footie5 predictions between Sam and Jermaine:
Manchester United vs Leicester City
SQ: Man United 2-2 Leicester City
“This feels like the battle for 5 and 6 place and I predict goals. Jamie Vardy is in great form and could fire the Foxes to a result.”
JJ: Man United 1-2 Leicester City
” Leicester are in really good form and look like scoring everytime they go forward! United will be nervous given recent results.”
Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace
SQ: Tottenham 2-1 Crystal Palace
“I don’t know what to expect from Tottenham . Awful vs Man City, poor at times against Arsenal , but I think they will scrape a home win here.”
JJ: Tottenham 2-0 Crystal Palace
“A much better performance for Spurs against Arsenal will have given them confidence, still a lot to work on but they’ll have too much for Palace.”
Wolves vs Chelsea
SQ:Wolves 1-1 Chelsea
” Wolves are better than their Premier League form suggests. Now they have officially qualified for the Europa League, I expect improvement.”
JJ:Wolves 1-1 Chelsea
“Wolves will look to improve after a poor performance against Everton but not sure Chelsea have enough right now to win this game so score draw.”
Bournemouth vs Everton
SQ: Bournemouth 0-2 Everton
” Bournemouth haven’t really got going yet and Everton look solid at the back. It’s a tough one to call, but I’ll go for a solid away win.”
JJ: Bournemouth 1-2 Everton
“Tight game this one but I think it suits Everton much morel. Bournemouth leak goals at home and Everton can be a very physical team that are dangerous from set-pieces.”
Watford vs Arsenal
SQ: Watford 0-3 Arsenal
” Watford look unrecognisable this season and Javi Garcia has paid the price! This could be Pepe’s coming out party. Big Arsenal win for me.”
JJ: Watford 1-3 Arsenal
“Things have been all over the place for Watford this season and Arsenal’s attack will be too much for them.”
