Katy B's predictions

His opponent for the next round of Premier League fixtures is singer Katy B, who is top of the UK album charts with her second offering, Little Red.

Katy grew up in south London in a family of Arsenal fans but chose to support her local team Crystal Palace.

"When I was younger I used to get sent to play football with my brother every Tuesday and I played for one of the 'Palace in the Community' teams," she told BBC Sport.

"Because my brother was a really wicked player he would always be captain, and would pick me first even though I was probably the worst player there.

"These days I go to watch Palace with one of my best friends. Are we staying up? Definitely, 100%!"
