George's Premiership Predictions 11 April 2015
The big match in the Premier League this weekend is the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford as third place Manchester United take on 4th place Manchester City. United haven't won this fixture for a while and with talk of a summer exodus for manager and players alike at the Etihad, this weekend might be the time for the red half of Manchester to be celebrating.
At the bottom Burnley have a difficult home game against in form Arsenal while West Brom face Leicester at The Hawthorns.

Soccer - Bruce convinced Hull will avoid the drop
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has set his side the target of securing eight points from their last seven matches, which he thinks will be enough to keep them in the Premier League. The Tigers are just two points above the drop-zone after losing at Swansea City last weekend and Bruce accepts that his side produced a below-par display at the Liberty Stadium. "It is up to us to go out there and find a couple of wins and a couple of draws in these last seven games. I'm convinced we can do that and stay up," he said. "The first half at Swansea was disappointing, no doubt about it. We have to be better at Southampton." Hull, 6/4 with bet365 to be relegated this season, are available at 40/1 to win 2-0 at St Mary's.
Soccer - Young keen to keep the momentum going
Manchester United's Ashley Young thinks the momentum is with Louis van Gaal's side heading into the derby clash with Manchester City at Old Trafford. United have won their last five Premier League matches since losing at Swansea City in February, while fourth-placed City were beaten 2-1 at Crystal Palace on Monday and have triumphed in only four of their last 14 matches in all competitions. City have won the last four derbies, but United can be backed at 14/1 with bet365 to end that run this weekend by winning the game 2-0. Young is available at 11/2 to score at any time on Sunday. "Obviously it is nice to be winning, but it is about that momentum," said former Aston Villa star Young. "United teams always come strong at this stage of the season and we are showing in every game just how strong we can be."
