Weekend Preview

Arsenal v Liverpool
Well, a lot of people are expecting rotation from both teams, and why should I differ from that? if Liverpool rotate, it will make a mockery of Benitez' method of having players fit at this stage of the season, surely they can now play all the games, Rafa? Either way, I expect the 'Pool to win this one 2-1.

Aston Villa v Bolton
Villa must be grateful for an easy chance to rack up 3 points here to arrest their slide, but I have a feeling a draw is in order, with Mr Loyalty, El Hadji Diouf scoring for Bolton

Blackburn v Tottenham
Blackburn to win - after all, Spurs did lose at home to Newcastle, so I have no confidence in them

Fulham v Sunderland
Fulham have been dire recently while Sunderland are easing away from relegation difficulty, I expect the Black Cats to push on and ensure their Premier League status

Man City v Chelsea
Well, this won't be a barnstorming game anyway, City to cause an upset as I suspect that Chelsea's focus will be on the CL. The league is still in play, but it is a longer shot for Grant. A Euro win will secure his job for a few seasons and all their energy will be on next Tuesday.

Newcastle v Reading
This will probably be an entertaining game of football and Newcastle will follow up their recent good form with another win

Wigan v Birmingham
Not a match for the purist, a nil nil draw looks likely. Bruce will try to beat his old club but then again, he's not a very good manager

Everton v Derby
I will be amazed if Everton don't win this, all you fantasy leaguers get Everton players in your team

Middlesbrough v Man Utd
Well, it has a tricky look about it but I still think United can go there and win. With the second leg against Roma only a formality, United should field a very strong team and get a narrow 2-1 win.

Oh, and because I forgot to post a pic of Carla Bruni on Wednesday, here it is now above. Viva Italia! For those interested in her music, here's a link....
