Saturday football
LIVERPOOL vs CHELSEA (1230)
What might have been a title-influencing game is now a mundane mid-table clash as both sides seek to overtake Brentford. Still, a decent enough start to the weekend’s action with a Europa League spot in sight. Draw.

SOUTHAMPTON vs ASTON VILLA (1500)
Come on, Villa. Until recently, this would have been a massive six-pointer. It’s still massive – and not just for the Saints – but with half the points. Villa have upped their game since the new manager was appointed, but Southampton too have clocked some points of late. Away win.

WEST HAM UNITED vs EVERTON (1500)
The Ings era begins. Can he give us the lift we desperately need? Can he show the others how to put the ball in the back of the net? Or will the West Ham curse strike again? “Is it possible,” Chris Sutton asks, “to predict that both teams lose?” That pretty much sums things up for two sides in a desperately awful run of form, but the flippancy cannot mask the importance of this game. Anything but a win will keep us in the drop zone and could put us (or them) bottom depending on what happens at St Mary’s. A battle of nerves in which those with the biggest goolies will emerge victorious. The other, meanwhile, may emerge without a manager. Home win.

BOURNEMOUTH vs NOTTINGHAM FOREST (1500)
What has happened to Forest? From rock-bottom, and looking good to stay there for the foreseeable, to lower mid-table. They’ve added Chris Wood to their roster, which should give their front line more of a threat. The Cherries on the other hand are where most expected them to be – perhaps even a little higher thanks to the miserable exploits of the teams in 18th and 19th. Another game with significance beyond Dorset. Forest to continue their run of form. Away win.

LEICESTER CITY vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION (1500)
The Foxes remain very much in relegation territory, while their visitors are pushing for Europe. That should be the incentive to put in a performance. Away win.

CRYSTAL PALACE vs NEWCASTLE UNITED (1730)
Palace’s poor run ended with a late draw against Man U. Can they repeat that against one of the division’s stand-out sides this season? They’ll do well if they do, but it’s unlikely. Away win.



*SUNDAY*

LEEDS UNITED vs BRENTFORD (1400)
Brentford are looking good for a third season in the top flight. Leeds less so. The hosts are still very much in relegation bother and will hope for a point at least from today. The Bees will have other ideas. Draw.

MANCHESTER CITY vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS (1400)
City can take no one for granted if they’re to eat into Arsenal’s lead. The previously humble Wolves showed a hidden arrogance in claiming all three points last weekend. But their goalscoring – particularly against the top sides – has let them down badly this season, as last. No surprises in store at the Etihad. Home win.

ARSENAL vs MANCHESTER UNITED (1630)
A corker to end the weekend’s fixture list. Both teams have the wind in their sails, although eight points separate them. The promises to be a full-on battle of the best the Premier League currently has to offer. Home win.


*MONDAY*

FULHAM vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (2000)
Fulham have exceeded all expectations so far this season. Spurs haven’t. Home advantage, momentum and a Europa League place. Home win.


*CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND-UP
The top two played on Friday, with leaders Burnley squeaking home with two late goals against the unfortunate Baggies. The Blades also squeaked home with a tedious-looking one-nil win over lower placed Hull. Watford lead the chasing pack and host lowly Rotherham this afternoon, while Blackburn take on Huddersfield and Boro take the bus to Sunderland in tomorrow’s game. Millwall, who sit just outside the play-off places but have games in hand, visit Cardiff who are flirting with danger at the foot of the table. As ever, there’s plenty to play for in this division.

Re: Saturday football
I see that Howard Webb was lying through his teeth when he said a few weeks ago that VAR would definitely only be getting involved in 'clear and obvious' errors.
Just seen a Southampton goal disallowed from last night and for the life of me I can't see why.

The idiots who currently operate VAR have to be kicked out because they are ruining the game.

It wasn’t just his knee offside. It looked pretty clear to me.

Re: Saturday football
Var truly is ruining football. Gary Neville on Forest goal check "has he gone a bit too early with the left knee". WTF !!

Re: Saturday football
I’m watching Fulham knock the ball around so nicely, and it’s yet another team that look so more assured than we ever do. If we’d played them this weekend, they could well have tonked us, if they had their finishing boots on.

Tottenham, we could beat right now. They are as dire as Dier.

Manuel 12:04 Mon Jan 23
Re: Saturday football
I picked up on how pacey the game was, light years away from what we are even close to producing. That's Manu out the title race now.

Re: Saturday football
I'd rather man city win it than the goons . Much prefer their fans and guardiola to arteta . But there's no doubting he's done a great job there . Arteta encourages his players to express themselves on the pitch .while Moyes constantly surpresses ours .

Re: Saturday football
Just shows how fucking good arteta is getting this tune out of nketiah. Yes artetas antics are ridiculous but what a job he is doing

There was a few on here turning their noses up at Nketiah for £20m a year ago

swindon hammer 8:42 Sun Jan 22
Re: Saturday football
Nketiah seems a cert to be called up to the next England squad. With him & Rashford in fantastic form England have now got options up front outside of Kane.

Cracking game. Still think Man City will eventually catch them but would quite like Arsenal to win the league.

Yes 100% as I said last week every player looks comfortable on the ball lovely to watch.
Arteta despite acting like a twat on the touchline has got them playing some superb stuff.
If only .........
