Revitalised Reds can build slender lead

Liverpool can edge to a potentially vital victory on Tuesday in their Champions League last-16 first-leg encounter against Bayern Munich. Liverpool’s FA Cup exit at Wolves last month means Jurgen Klopp’s side have enjoyed a 10-day break since their last match – the comfortable win against Bournemouth. Bayern had to come from behind to beat […]

London sides have chance to regroup

Manchester United’s recent resurgence means Arsenal and Chelsea may both miss out on a top-four spot in the Premier League, so the two London sides may focus on trying to win the Europa League as they attempt to qualify for next term’s Champions League. The Gunners, 6/1 to win the Europa League outright, will be […]

City to end perfect week in style

The last two Premier League champions meet on Sunday and Manchester City can gain revenge for their 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge in December by beating Chelsea on home soil. The match is a dress rehearsal for the Carabao Cup final between the two sides later this month and it is City that head into […]

Baggies can finish Brighton off

Even though West Brom would prefer to prioritise gaining promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, Darren Moore’s side have a great opportunity to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup. After holding Brighton to a goalless draw at the Amex Stadium, the Baggies have the chance to finish […]

Foxes no match for rampant Reds

Liverpool can continue their imperious home form by beating Leicester City and taking another step towards claiming their first league title since 1990. The pressure is growing on Jurgen Klopp’s men, and there have been a few wobbles of late, but they can make it three Premier League victories in a row by beating the […]

City to ease to Tyneside triumph

Manchester City can increase the pressure on Premier League leaders Liverpool by beating Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Tuesday. Pep Guardiola’s team will be only one point behind the Reds, who play Leicester on Wednesday, if they can triumph on Tyneside, which seems virtually guaranteed as they have won their last eight matches […]

Spurs to stifle shot-shy Blues

Tottenham can move a step closer to winning their first trophy for more than a decade by beating Chelsea and reaching the League Cup final. In the 2008 final Spurs came from behind to beat the Blues 2-1 at Wembley with Dimitar Berbatov and Jonathan Woodgate scoring the goals for Juande Ramos’ side. Although Spurs […]

Fulham can stun wounded Spurs

Fulham are in desperate need of three points as they attempt to avoid relegation and they could get them on Sunday when Tottenham visit Craven Cottage. Claudio Ranieri’s team could not have hoped to play Spurs at a better time as the visitors will be without the injured Harry Kane while Son Heung-min is on […]

More FA Cup misery for Magpies

Newcastle United have not got past the fourth round of the FA Cup since the 2005/06 campaign and look set to endure another early exit when they visit Blackburn Rovers for a third-round replay on Tuesday. Blackburn to win 1-0 @ 25/4 Rafa Benitez’s side were a little fortunate to force a replay after falling […]

United to undermine Spurs’ title push

Manchester United can prove that their post-Jose Mourinho revival needs to be taken seriously by beating Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday. Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at Old Trafford, United have won four Premier League games in a row and triumphed against a limited Reading side in the FA Cup last weekend. All four […]
