Revenge in the Old Trafford air

Huddersfield Town produced one of the shocks of the season when they beat Manchester United in October but is difficult to see how lightning will strike twice when the teams meet at Old Trafford on Saturday. The Terriers saw off United for the first time in 65 years three-and-a-half months ago at the John Smith’s […]

Free-scoring Fulham to fell Forest

In-form Fulham can enhance their promotion claims by beating Nottingham Forest at Craven Cottage on Saturday. Slavisa Jokanovic’s side have surged up to sixth in the table as a result of winning their last four matches, scoring 14 goals in the process. The Cottagers have found the net in each of their last seven games, […]

Blues to put smile back on Conte’s face

Chelsea can bring their poor run of form to an end by easing past Newcastle United in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday. Antonio Conte’s side have only won one of the seven matches they have been involved in during January and needed penalties before seeing off Norwich City in a third-round […]

England set sights on final success

Having won the series with two matches to play, England suffered a reverse in Adelaide and will be keen to put that right in the final ODI against Australia in Perth on Sunday. Their top order was blown away last time out and although there was a fightback from 8-5, there was no real way […]

Sublime Federer to crush Cilic

It is difficult to see how Marin Cilic can stop Roger Federer winning a sixth Australian Open – and 20th Grand Slam title – on Sunday in a repeat of last year’s Wimbledon final. On that occasion Federer brushed aside an injured Cilic in straight sets but, if anything, the Swiss veteran seems to have […]

Mean Wigan can frustrate Hammers

League One leaders Wigan Athletic can claim another Premier League scalp when they entertain West Ham United in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The Latics, unbeaten in their last 14 matches in all competitions, are incredibly tight defensively, particularly at home where they have conceded only four goals in 14 league fixtures. They […]

Gunners can edge tight semi

Arsenal can start their post-Alexis Sanchez era with a narrow victory against Chelsea as they step up their attempt to win the League Cup for only the third time. The Chilean finally moved to Manchester United on Monday but his departure could lead to there being more harmony in the Gunners squad as he was […]

Spurs to sink sorry Saints

Mauricio Pochettino can enjoy a winning return to Southampton when he takes his in-form Tottenham side to St Mary’s on Sunday. The 45-year-old Argentine spent one season in charge of Saints before joining Spurs in May 2014. He has enjoyed a successful time in north London as Spurs have finished fifth, third and second in […]

Cardiff Can Silence Out-Of-Sorts Owls

Cardiff City can end a fine week in style by winning at free-falling Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday evening. The Bluebirds lost all four Championship games over the festive period but returned to form last weekend by thrashing Sunderland 4-0 and followed that result up by winning 4-1 at Mansfield Town in an FA Cup third-round […]

Goals to flow at expectant Anfield

Something will have to give at Anfield on Sunday when table-topping Manchester City take on Liverpool. The Reds are unbeaten at home this season and have not lost any of their last 14 games against City on their own pitch while Pep Guardiola’s team have won 20 and drawn two of their top-flight matches. The […]
