PM fancies Spurs to beat Saints
1:00am Friday 20th December 2013 in Sport
PRIME Minister David Cameron reckons Saints will lose 1-0 to Spurs this weekend.
The Prime Minister backed Hull to win on Saturday because the city has a rivalry with Scunthorpe, where his wife Samantha’s family pile is based, and he wanted to “extend the hand of friendship”.
West Ham were tipped to beat Manchester United because vice chairman Karren Brady is helping the PM “bat for British business” while Norwich won support because Mr Cameron is a fan of majority shareholder Delia Smith’s “brilliant” cookbooks.
Cameron made the predictions during filming in Camp Bastion, Afghan-istan, for a special episode of Football Focus following the launch a new UK-Afghan football partnership to boost the game by developing the league system.
Running through the fixture list for the next few days, he said: “Ooo, I like West Ham so why don’t we go West Ham 2, Manchester United 1.”
When it came to Sunderland against Norwich, he said: “I quite like Norwich, bit of a Delia Smith fan, so let’s give this one to Norwich.”
Next on the list was West Bromwich Albion against Hull, to which he replied: “My wife is from Scunthorpe, they don’t like Hull very much but we’ll try and extend the hand of friendship and we’ll go for Hull 1-0.”
Cameron, an Aston Villa fan, said his team would win 2-0 against Stoke.
Football Focus will be broadcast tomorrow at noon.
The predictions: Liverpool 2 Cardiff 0, Crystal Palace 1 Newcastle United 2, Fulham 0 Man City 3, Man United 1 West Ham 2, Stoke 0 Aston Villa 2, Sunderland 0 Norwich 2, West Brom 0 Hull 1, SAINTS 0 Spurs 1, Swansea 3 Everton 0, Arsenal 1 Chelsea 2.
