Charlie Nicholas has stepped in to predict the Premier League games as a substitute for Paul Merson this weekend.
Charlie didn’t have a good start last night when he predicted Manchester United would win 2-0 at Brighton but were beaten 1-0.
And Charlie has never been a particular Newcastle fan, and we suppose it’s not too surprising that he predicts Newcastle will lose their third game in a row by 1-0 at Watford this afternoon.

Here’s what Charlie has said about the game to Sky Sports:
“I think Javi Gracia is fighting for his job and could see that motivation be the difference here.”
“I’ve gone for a narrow home win but it could easily be 0-0 with neither side having much to play for.”
Not much analysis there from Charlie.
Watford have had eight managers since Gianfranco Zola was manager back in 2013.
And we suppose it’s likely they could change their manager again for the fifth time in the Premier League.
They already fired Marco Silva in late January.
Watford were promoted in the summer of 2015 under then manager Slavisa Jokanovic, but he couldn’t agree on terms to stay with them in the Premier League.
The majority of Newcastle fans think we can win this game this afternoon.
Let’s hope they are right.
