Premier League predictions: Chris Sutton faces filmmakers Aaron Moorhead & Justin Benson


Chris Sutton has had trouble predicting how most teams will do this season, but Leeds and Bournemouth in particular keep proving him wrong – so who will he back when they play each other on Saturday?

“Leeds and Bournemouth fans are both quite angry with my predictions and have been giving me an awful lot of stick,” BBC Sport football expert Sutton said. “Because of that, I hope they both lose this week.”

Sutton is making predictions for every top-flight game this season against a variety of guests.

For this weekend’s fixtures, he is up against filmmakers Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson.

The American duo, who worked together on episodes of big-budget Marvel series Moon Knight and Loki for Disney, co-direct, co-produce, co-edit and also co-star in their new film, a supernatural sci-fi titled Something in the Dirt, which is in UK cinemas from Friday.

The pair say they are not exactly Premier League experts but relished the chance to pit their wits against Sutton, who they feel could have starred as a villain in one of their horror films.

“We had to google Chris,” said Aaron. “But he does look very charismatic.

“He could very well lead the wonderful UFO commune in Camp Arcadia from our movie, The Endless,” added Justin. “He would have made a good Hal, who I should add is a little weird, if he could act and learn some lines.”

While Sutton is a regular voice on the airwaves and in front of TV cameras, an appearance on the silver screen has eluded him – so far.

He is open to offers for a biopic of his career, and says he is taking lessons in amateur dramatics from his 606 co-host Robbie Savage – as if they are needed – but it is a project unlikely to snare Moorhead and Benson, at least at first glance.

“I played baseball when I was a kid and then did skateboarding and surfing,” added Justin.

“But neither of us really know much about sport, even American sport, so if we made a sports movie about Chris I think it would be really funny for the audience, because of how little we know.

“It might also be kind of creepy, like when you ask artificial intelligence to create artwork. It would probably be a really surreal representation of sport, that doesn’t make any sense.”

A bit like some of Chris’ predictions, then. Thinking about it, maybe they are the right people to tell his story after all.

Leeds v Bournemouth

I was only just out when I predicted that Leeds would lose 6-1 at Liverpool last week.

I took a lot of flak from Leeds fans following their win at Anfield but, once again, it was after the event. They were thinking the same as me before the game.

Seriously though, I was pleased for Leeds boss Jesse Marsch when he got that result. I have never met him, and he bigs his team up possibly too much at times after they’ve lost games, but I get why he is always trying to be positive about his players.

That win will buy him a bit of time, not with the club’s owners, but with the Elland Road crowd who were on his back when they lost to Fulham in their last home game.

That goodwill will only last if Marsch can back it up by beating Bournemouth, who were woeful as they chucked away a 2-0 lead to lose against Tottenham last time out.

But it is a good enough reason to be positive about Leeds, and I am going for them to win this one. Unfortunately for them, that usually means they lose.

Sutton’s prediction: 2-1

Aaron’s prediction: 2-2

Justin’s prediction: 2-1

Manchester City v Fulham

Fantasy Football has gone into meltdown since Erling Haaland got injured last week – he sat out last weekend’s win over Leicester and the midweek victory over Seville, but will he or won’t he be back here?

Either way, I think City will win this one pretty comfortably. The only thing I wasn’t sure about was whether Fulham would manage a consolation goal – I have got Ederson in goal in my Fantasy team so I am going to say no, they won’t.

Sutton’s prediction: 3-0

Aaron’s prediction: 5-1

Justin’s prediction: 4-0
