Re: Premier League picks and previews 2011-12

Premier League 17 and 18 September

Injuries
Blackburn: Dunn, Pedersen, Nelson
Arsenal: Diaby, Squillaci, Vermaelen, Wilshere
Blackburn have been terrible so far this season and I expect the Gunners to get at least one point from this game. But the Gunners are missing key players for this one.
Arsenal to win.

Aston Villa - Newcastle Utd
Villa Park
Kick-off: 16:00
Last season: Aston Villa 1-0 Newcastle Utd, Newcastle Utd 6-0 Aston Villa.

Injuries

Bolton should be able to take all three points from this one against newly-promoted Norwich. The hosts will be desperate to bounce back after having been taken apart by Manchester United in their last game.

Wolves: WWDL
QPR: LWLD

QPR: Kenny, Young, Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Traore, Wright-Phillips, Barton, Derry, Faurlin, Taarabt, Bothroyd.
Injuries
Wolves: Edwards, Ebanks-Blake
QPR: Dyer, Mackie, Hulse
Wolves face a QPR side who have been given a boost in recent weeks following the take over of the club by Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes. I believe QPR could get something from this one.
Draw.
