Collymore posted his predictions on his personal Twitter account on Friday.

Saturday will see Fernando Llorente be in contention to make his league debut for Tottenham having signed from Swansea on transfer deadline day.
The Spaniard scored 15 goals for the Welsh club last season as he played a major part in helping them avoid relegation to the Championship.

Tottenham go into Saturday’s clash in the knowledge that they have had the better of Swansea in most of their fixtures with one another in the history of the fixture.
In fact, the Swans have not beaten Spurs in a league meeting since 1982 when the south Wales side earned a 2-0 win.
Since the Premier League started, Tottenham have won all but two of their 12 fixtures with Swansea, winning all of their home games at White Hart Lane.
However with Saturday’s game set to take place at Wembley, it remains to be seen if Pochettino’s men can prove that their curse has been well and truly lifted after they beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League there on Wednesday night.
