Gunners need to sting Hornets

Arsenal head to Vicarage Road to take on Watford on Monday evening knowing that they need a win to avoid losing ground in their push for a top-four finish. The Gunners fell to a 1-0 defeat at Everton last time out and they cannot afford another slip-up against the Hornets, who will no doubt be […]

Home form favours the Magpies

Saturday has just three Premier League games on the schedule, with the meeting of Newcastle United and Crystal Palace at St James’ Park perhaps the pick of the bunch. Both teams have surely done enough to escape the threat of relegation and one more win for either side would make almost certain of their survival. […]

Wolves can take the final step

Manchester City may be the favourites to win the FA Cup but, after knocking Liverpool and Manchester United out of the competition, Wolves will be confident of lifting the trophy for the first time since 1960. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team have been outstanding this season following last term’s promotion and are in contention to finish […]

City ready to seal Schalke success

Two late away goals have given Manchester City the platform needed to ensure they eliminate Schalke to progress to the Champions League quarter-finals. Trailing 2-1 with five minutes to play in the first leg in Gelsenkirchen the Citizens were in a slight spot of bother, only for Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling to find the […]

Tough one to call at Basseterre

England went into the first T20 of the three-match series against the West Indies as the slight outsiders, but eventually came out on top in St Lucia. Now they have an opportunity to seal a series victory in St Kitts on Friday although there is seemingly little to choose between the two sides. West Indies […]

England have last chance for success

Having failed to come out on top in either the Test or one-day international series, England have a final chance for some glory in three T20s in the West Indies. However, the omens do not look good for the tourists, who have lost six of their last ten Twenty20 internationals and six of their last […]

Pivotal ODI showdown in Grenada

It’s still all to play for between the West Indies and England in the fourth ODI, with the winner of the match on Wednesday able to ensure they cannot lose the series. The five-match programme is currently tied at 1-1, with the third ODI in Grenada on Monday washed out without a ball being bowled. […]

In-form United have Bridge edge

An in-form Manchester United side get an opportunity to avenge a Wembley final defeat last season when they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup fifth round. The recent record between the two sides at the Bridge suggests that the hosts should have the edge on Monday evening, with the Blues unbeaten in […]

Windies aim for series sweep

The West Indies will go in search of a series whitewash against England when the third and final Test gets under way in St Lucia on Saturday. Having unexpectedly dominated in both Barbados and Antigua, the hosts will be bouncing as they head to Gros Islet, but their record there is not one to inspire […]

Reds can top wobbling Irons

Having lost three games in a row, West Ham face a tough task in trying to get back on track as they welcome Liverpool to the London Stadium on Monday evening. And their recent record against the Reds hardly gives any reason to be upbeat, with the Irons having shipped four goals in each of […]
