So much football, Matchday 19 is not even dead and buried before we have to whip out our EPL Matchday 20 Predictions.

Not only is it hard to do the study for our own tips, but it is not much of a turnaround to find another absurd opponent to go up against.

But find that opponent we have, and so here are the EPL Matchday 20 Predictions.

This week we are sending our tips up against tips based whichever team’s local area has the more famous person.

How does it work?

Well, thanks for asking. And thanks tio Wikipedia for providing most of the answers too.

For each team, we found the most famous person from that area, and then compare head to head, and the more famous the person, that team gets the tip.\

For London teams we used the London Borough, and for places like Manchester and Liverpool, we used the local area within that city.

We also avoided using footballers or sports people in general.

No more delay, we know our many reader can’t wait to see our tips, and how famous people can decide football tips.
