On Saturday, Arsenal will play a recognizable opponent in an effort to restart their championship defense. Will they defeat Unai Emery’s Aston Villa team?
Football analyst Chris Sutton of BBC Sport remarked, “I really want there to be a title race and Arsenal need to cling on in there.”
“It is simply their luck that they are playing against a manager who was mocked by their supporters this weekend and they truly need a win.
“A Villa victory would be the ideal way for Emery to prove his mettle at this point.”
This season, Sutton is competing against a range of guests to make predictions for every match in the top division.
He will face Starship Troopers actor Casper van Dien in this weekend’s games.
Daughter, a new mystery movie by Van Dien, will be available for digital download on Monday.
Corey Deshon, the daughter of the film’s director, has predicted similar results for the games and pledged to cast Sutton in his upcoming project, assuming there is a role obstinate enough for him to play.
Deshon remarked, “By the sounds of it, I think that’s doubtful.” But I’ll give Chris a shot if he gives me an audition tape.
Starship Troopers’ Casper van Dien
Can Casper van Dien beat Chris Sutton at predictions after he conquered a planet’s worth of hostile lifeforms in the 1997 film Starship Troopers as Johnny Rico?
Despite having football-loving relatives in the Netherlands, Van Dien’s own career was gone by the time he was 15 years old.
He admitted to playing a lot of soccer as a child and competing all the way up to the ninth grade, but after that, he only played American football.
“I still have cousins in the Netherlands, and they frequently discuss soccer. Yet, I haven’t attended a game since I attended David Beckham’s final game for the LA Galaxy in 2012.
I once owned a Beckham jersey, which I proudly wore, but I haven’t been back since.
It’s a major failure on my part, and I’m determined to attend a game the next time I visit the UK in order to do so. I guess I’ll just have to settle for making forecasts for the time being, though!
It’s just a shame for Van Dien that Hull City aren’t involved because he’s taught his daughter Grace, who portrayed cheerleader Chrissy in Stranger Things, that chanting “Go Tigers” has become something of a family ritual.
In Starship Troopers, I play on the Tigers, my football team, and in Stranger Things, Gracie’s character supports the Tigers, the team at Hawkins High School where she attends, as Van Dien said.
“At 54, my prospects of playing for Hull in a sports movie are quite remote, but if I can play the owner or the coach, you never know,” he said.
