Saturday football
A weekend short on league fixtures, but high on significance. After last night’s gutsy win at high-flying Wolves, Leeds have added welcome breathing space between themselves and the bottom three – and, against probability and expectation, have kept us in sixth place. Ta. Two of that bottom three now look certain to obey the law of footballing gravity, while the other, Burnley, will have to pull out all the stops if they’re to avoid the drop. Not impossible, but unlikely – and undesirable. I, for one, would prefer to see Leeds in the top flight than Burnley. The FA Cup, meanwhile, promises intrigue and the potential for an improbable upset or two.

*TODAY*

PREMIER LEAGUE

ASTON VILLA vs ARSENAL (1230)
On 9/11, Arsenal were bottom of the table. Now they have an outside chance of finishing third. That’s progress. Villa’s recent progress, meanwhile, came to an abrupt and pleasing end last weekend, and they may have wished for easier opponents than today’s to get them back on track. Nonetheless, this should be a good, battling game. Away win.


FA CUP

MIDDLESBORO v CHELSEA (1715)
Did the Chelsea squad fly to Durham-Tees Valley or did wheels take them there? It matters little, as despite their present tribulations they’ll still be too good for a side that’s fighting for a Championship play-off spot. Away win.


*SUNDAY*
PREMIER LEAGUE

LEICESTER CITY vs BRENTFORD (1400)
The wind has returned to Brentford’s sails and they now find themselves just three points behind today’s hosts. Christian Eriksen’s presence, as well as his ability, has given them a boost that looks set to keep them in the top flight for an unlikely second season. Good on ‘em. Draw.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs WEST HAM UNITED (1630)
Level on points and with a game in hand, Spurs will fancy their chances of climbing into fifth. A stunning win over Sevilla sees us with confidence high and, after extra time on Thursday, energy levels low. We’re still without Bowen and Coufal. On paper, this looks a very even fixture. And on this FA Cup day, it has something of a cup tie about it. Draw.

FA CUP

CRYSTAL PALACE vs EVERTON (1230)
League position counts for little in such games. But you’d think that FLJ may have preferred to be without a game of this importance. Not least, to allow healing for a damaged hand. Palace have turned into a decent side, and are hard to beat at Selhurst Park. Home win.

SOUTHAMPTON vs MANCHESTER CITY (1500)
League position counts for much in such games. The Saints are enjoying a good season and look set for a top ten finish. City, though, expect the title. And more. Away win.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST vs LIVERPOOL (1800)
Ah, the romance of the cup. In this season’s competition, Forest have already shown they’re no mugs and Liverpool will be wise not to underestimate their opponents, whatever their league status. An entertaining watch beckons. Away win.


*PICK OF THE CHAMPIONSHIP*

With the automatic promotion places all but secured, attention focuses on the steamy battle for a play-off spot. Eight sides, at least, have a realistic shot at making the final four. Among them, Millwall who visit listless Stoke this afternoon. Third-placed Huddersfield take on Bournemouth, second, while Blackburn (fourth) visit Reading (21st) in a must-win encounter for both teams. Luton go to Hull and in tomorrow’s only game, QPR host rock-bottom Peterborough. Another Boro, Middles, and Forest, seventh and eighth respectively, are on FA Cup duty, and Sheffield Utd play Barnsley, eh up, in another must-win game for both. And finally, Derby play Coventry. With eight games left, Derby have six points to make up on Reading, who also have a game in hand. It’s looking increasingly bleak for the unfortunate Rams.

Hope Palace go on and win it. And I don't even like Palace

Liverpool score dodgy goal.

3/4 teams in the FA cup guarantees 7th being European football.

Interesting to see that Rangers have a player playing for them today called Sands.

Everton are shit.

If Palace win this they would have reached the semi final without having to leave London.

Our top 3 decider against Arsenal may be tough. Think it is in between our possible semi final with Barcelona.
What a time to be alive!

Re: Saturday football
Yes & no. We were in a similar position this time last year I think and only ended up a few points short, so who knows, don't want to be in same position again.

Re: Saturday football
Top 4 is pretty much gone.

Top 6 at best and tbh with Man Utd, Tottenham & Arsenal all out of Europe and the FA Cup they only have league games to worry about while we will still be playing extra games on Thursday’s.

Let’s concentrate on the Europa League.

Re: Saturday football
Was hoping Villa would at least get a draw..

Must beat Spurs & Arsenal now otherwise top 4 is gone & top 6 is in the balance, obviously.

Too many dropped points at home to lower Prem sides, losing at the Emirates hasn't helped either.
