Tuesday’s EPL Matches – PreviewBy: Wayne Farry | March 3rd, 2009
Sorry for this being up after the kick-offs, but my PC’s on the skids and I only just got my internet going again. Anyway…
There’s a full program of EPL matches spread over Tuesday and Wednesday this week, with 3 matches tonight and 7 tomorrow.
Pompey vs Chelsea
Chelsea go to Fratton Park on the back of some really good results. Guus Hiddink has really instilled some confidence in this team and they never stop running. The win against Wigan on Saturday was thrilling and they’ll be looking to take that confidence to a rejuvenated Fratton Park. Paul Hart has, like Hiddink at Chelsea, brought a new confidence to Portsmouth. They had a good win at home to Man City a few weeks back and they got a great draw at Stoke last week. The Britannia’s a hard place to come and to draw there is nothing to be sniffed at.
Prediction: Pompey 1 – 2 Chelsea
Liverpool vs Sunderland
Liverpool host the Black Cats at Anfield after a horrendous result last weekend at Middlesbrough. The 2-0 loss they suffered put their title ambitions to bed. With most sides, you’d say that a result like that would be a catalyst for improved form but I just don’t know about Liverpool. Sunderland got a great 0-0 draw at The Emirates a week and a half ago and they’ll be taking that result into this game. They’re not doing badly at the moment and don’t forget; Djibril Cisse returns to Anfield tonight. Do you think he’ll want to score?
Prediction: Liverpool 2 – 2 Sunderland
WBA v Arsenal
Two sides in bad form. Arsenal have had 4 consecutive 0-0 draws and West Brom are just bad. However, they lost, perhaps unfortunately against Everton at the weekend and maybe they’ll have more luck tonight. Arsenal simply need to score. If they get 1 early today, they could get loads. They need to get their strikers scoring, and I think they will.
Prediction: WBA 2 – 3 Arsenal
So there are the predictions. I’m probably going to be wrong on all 3 games, but that’s the fun. Enjoy tonight’s matches and again, sorry for the lateness…
