Saturday football
WATFORD vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (1230 ko)
Watford are soaring. They’re out of the drop zone and below us on goal difference. Spurs are hobbling along and may give a start to Gedson Fernandes, who could have been given a start somewhere else if he had more sense. He may wish he’d done that if the Hornets play as they have done of late. A draw is the most sensible prediction. Home win.

ARSENAL vs SHEFFIELD UNITED
The Blades could break into the top five with a win today, and Arsenal will have to be at their sharpest to counter the disciplined commitment of their visitors. It’s a tough ask, the more so with top scorer Aubameyang suspended. A draw is the most sensible prediction. Home win.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs ASTON VILLA
Villa are in the mire and Brighton aren’t far from it. A heavy battle beckons, with a draw the most sensible prediction. Home win.

MANCHESTER CITY vs CRYSTAL PALACE
By now, City should have accepted that they’re this season’s also-rans. Expectations are a lot lower at Palace, yet they’ve surpassed what most of their fans will have expected for this stage of the campaign. The beaked one will hope for something from their visit to the Etihad despite a home win being the most sensible prediction. Home win.

NORWICH CITY vs BOURNEMOUTH
Today’s most authentic six-pointer, and one we’ll be keeping a beady eye on. Bournemouth are in freefall and the rest of this season will go a long way to gauging the true calibre of boss Eddie Howe. It’s going to be gritty. A draw is the most sensible prediction. Home win.

SOUTHAMPTON vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS
The Saints remain in orbit after a phenomenal run that sees them in 12th spot – compared to genuine relegation candidates just a few weeks ago. They’ll have their work cut out against a team that continues to defy expectations. This should be good. A draw is the most sensible prediction. Home win.

WEST HAM UNITED vs EVERTON
Our most annoying bogey team returns for a game with plenty of side shows. Antonio and Anderson are doubts, meaning Moyes will have to try another way of getting service to Haller. That could be interesting, but it’s likely to involve Lanzini who remains in need of a motivational kick up the backside. Richarlison is out for Everton, while Randolph looks set to make his second debut in goal. A draw is the most sensible prediction. Draw.

That could be interesting, but it’s likely to involve Lanzini who remains in need of a motivational kick up the backside. Richarlison is out for Everton, while Randolph looks set to make his second debut in goal. A draw is the most sensible prediction. This one’s for you, Eddie B. Home win.

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs CHELSEA (1730 ko)
Chelsea have been impressively inconsistent this season and will be tested this evening by a Magpies side that will be keen to build on the progress of recent months – despite winning only one of their last six games. A draw is the most sensible prediction. Draw.

It has been explained several times the involvement of VAR in attacking handball and defensive handball.
It’s nonsense obviously to penalise accidental handball on one & not the other and presumably that will change next season when the knuckleheads who decide these things wake up.

VAR was ok yesterday now that they have started using the screen.
Norwich player rightly sent off when he would have got away with it normally

Re: Saturday football
VAR is watching everything isn’t it?
And would have seen with one replay that it hit his arm that was tucked in front of his body as he turned as the ball was driven at him from 2 yds.
BBC obviously needs comments on its website to justify how much they spend on it

Far Cough 7:38 Sun Jan 19
Re: Saturday football
Maguire heads the corner clear but Liverpool come again and Alexander-Arnold prompts calls for handball against Shaw with his cross.

It did hit Shaw's hand but he was at point-blank range to the cross and had turned his back completely. VAR didn't even bother checking it.


BBC


Anyone want to make a comment on that?

Leicester 3/5 with skybet for Wednesday, 60% return! We've had a days more rest and seem more resilient under the dour jock but I'm not hopeful!

Sven Roeder 6:50 Sun Jan 19
Re: Saturday football
I think that shouldn’t be a foul but in 95% of cases that sort of thing (& often much less) is penalised.
Man U started well but could easily be 3-0 down
But Solsjkaer will have all manner of excuses

Fucking typical

I put £10 on Man Utd to win, at 7/1, then a minute later, Liverpool take the lead.

I am clearly crap at gambling.

Re: Saturday football
Southampton & Burnley have beaten Leicester.
We’ve lost to their reserve team.
That’s where we are and it means we are in a group of about 6 who are realistically going to be on the brink of relegation until May.

I think the odds are stacked firmly against us. Hoping that Villa and the others continue to struggle is not enough.

The owners, due to their inability to know they are the problem, waited far too long to replace Pellegrini. There was a run of games there we would have got quite a few points from as we threw several away with the Scarecrow' "who needs a defence, we play like a big team" nonsense.

Need to pay through the nose for a quality loan or purchase but we wont and I suspect it will be the difference because our midfield and full backs although now better organised and working harder are simply not strong or quick enough.

Re: Saturday football
Thx Terry.

yes we have shown over the years how our superior fitness and speed works for us and how we can use an extra day's rest to our advantage. I am relaxed now ;-)

Vexed 5:33 Sun Jan 19
Re: Saturday football
We're going to need something from a couple of unlikely games at this rate, the way these results are falling. Where are we getting 5 wins and two draws from then?

Re: Saturday football
I'm sure our extra day's rest will give us an advantage,Sir Alf.
