The Spanish defender has a lot of work to do to claim number on spot from Boothman who has sat their for weeks now on 10 points.
Edu will collect one point for each correct outcome of the Barclays Premier League games at the weekend and three points for a correct score line, here are his predictions:
Queens Park Rangers 2-1 Norwich City
"QPR have signed players that will make a difference for them and they are at home of course."
Arsenal 3-1 Stoke City
"Arsenal gained some momentum during the week when they came back against Liverpool."
Everton 2-0 Aston Villa
"Everton are in a good run of form and I think it will continue."
Newcastle United 0-2 Chelsea
"After losing the 2-0 lead against Reading, Chelsea will want to bite back quickly."
Reading 1-1 Sunderland
"This will be a tight game although Reading are very dangerous and like to attack."
West Ham United 0-3 Swansea City
"Swansea have a lot of quality and will be in good spirits with the Capital One Cup final in a couple of months time."
Fulham 1-4 Manchester United
"Man Utd have been really good lately and they'll be looking to keep that points gap at the top."
West Bromwich Albion 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
"It will be a close game because West Brom are at home but I think Spurs will just edge it."
Manchester City 2-2 Liverpool
"I think this will be a very similar game to Liverpool's against Arsenal on Wednesday."
