Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has made his Premier League weekend predictions and has tipped Manchester City to continue their fine run away from home.It’s matchday 3, and Paul Merson has given Sky Sports his thoughts and predictions on all 10 matches this weekend.Wolves v Man City“City look relentless, completely unbelievable. I thought they might take some time to get going after the World Cup, but they’re the only team who can rest a load of players and beat the lesser teams comfortably. ”Manchester City to win 3-1Watford v Crystal Palace“This is a tough one to predict, because Palace do have a bit about them. They sat 10 behind the ball against Liverpool and hoped Zaha would do something special. But I think they’ll win this game.”Crystal Palace to 2-1Newcastle v Chelsea“Chelsea don’t look amazing at the back, Arsenal ripped them apart at times, but Newcastle don’t have what Arsenal have going forward. Maurizio Sarri said he wants Chelsea to be pressing at all times, and it’s a danger when they don’t, even for 20 minutes.”Chelsea to win 2-1Man Utd v Tottenham“Over the last three or four years, you see Manchester United turn it on in these type of games, when the pressure is on. They’ve done it to Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham, everyone.”Manchester United to win 2-1Arsenal v West Ham “I don’t see anything other than an Arsenal win here.

The Sterling Highway is now open while the Skilak Lake Road remains closed. Construction will resume on the highway and pilot cars and flaggers will be used in these areas. Continue to drive with caution in the fire area. Minimal fire activity with isolated pockets of torching with some surface fire was reported on the fire line yesterday. Similar fire behavior is expected for today’s operations. Yesterday, a new fire progression map was made. Note, that the acreage on that map was not updated to our current 162,328. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Update 6:55am:Last night an infrared flight was flown. This flight indicated an increase in 149 acres. The Swan Lake Fire in now 162,328 acres. Original Post: 6am: The Swan Lake Fire remains at 162,179 acres with 719 personnel assigned, and at 29% containment. Firefighters are utilizing the overnight moisture to assist in mop up operations to further contain the fire. Dan Nelson, Incident Manager with the Kenai Peninsula Borough: “Make sure that you are ready to evacuate or take action as needed. However, this shows a good significant shift in fire behavior, and it show that the crews have made good progress in getting those areas contained.” Chainsaw and mop up operations are being conducted on the southwest side near Sterling to clean up tree debris along the fires edge from past wind events, so be aware when driving through the area. Travelers will see smoke and downed trees while passing through the fire area. Fire crews may also be working along the road cleaning up trees that have fallen so drivers are encouraged to drive safely and remain alert. The reduced fire activity allows firefighters to build line closer to the fire’s edge, south of Resurrection Pass Trail. The priority is to reduce potential fire spread toward Cooper Landing, if fire activity picks up again. Chipping operations will continue in the Cooper Landing area to reduce slash and larger debris material.A joint community meeting was held in both Sterling and Cooper Landing last night to update the residents on the current status of the fire and the downgrade of evacuation status for both communities. All restrictions for outdoor activities due to air quality, and activity related travel between Sterling and Cooper Landing on Sterling Highway were removed effective on Tuesday for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. Cooper Landing School will reopen Wednesday on a normal schedule. In a letter from the district, thank you to everyone for your patience throughout the past 14 days while these restrictions were in place for student and staff safety.
