park Premier League Review: Week 17

Manchester United ended week 17 of the Barclays Premier League on top, two points clear and with a game in hand ahead of their crucial clash with Chelsea next Sunday. If that game is big then so was there win over Arsenal at Old Trafford yesterday evening. United won the game thanks to a Park Ji Sung header in the first half.

The Premier League also witnessed Chelsea miss out on a win over Spurs, ending 1-1, Manchester City briefly going joint top after a win at West Ham, Liverpool lost again, this time to Newcastle under new boss Alan Pardew. Bolton Wanderers beat local rivals Blackburn whose manager Sam Allardyce has now lost his job, Aston Villa won 2-1 at home to West Brom, Everton drew 0-0 with Wigan, as did Sunderland and Fulham, Blackpool won on the road again at Stoke and Wolves beat local rivals Birmingham in a hard-fought match.

With the hectic Christmas schedule set to light up the next couple of weeks it will be interesting to see who leads the Premier League heading into new year. Manchester United’s postponed fixture away to Blackpool will be played on the 25th January on a Wednesday evening – could they still be top of the league after that game?

Barclays Premier League Results:

Aston Villa 2-1 West Brom

Everton 0-0 Wigan

Fulham 0-0 Sunderland

Newcastle 3-1 Liverpool

Stoke 0-1 Blackpool

West Ham 1-3 Man City

Bolton 2-1 Blackburn

Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea

Wolverhampton 1-0 Birmingham

Man Utd 1-0 Arsenal

Barclays Premier League3 Premier League Preview: Week 14

After a short International break the Premier League returns to action with some exciting-looking fixtures. On Saturday Arsenal face local rivals Spurs at the Emirates, Chelsea face a tricky trip to Birmingham, Man United entertain Wigan and Liverpool host West Ham. Sunday’s games see Fulham welcome Manchester City and Aston Villa travel to Blackburn. Monday night’s game sees Sunderland play Everton in a game that really could go either way. Our predictions on the games are below but feel free to comment and give us your views on the games.

Saturday, 20 November 2010

Arsenal 2 v 1 Tottenham, 12:45 – Arsenal have been playing well in recent weeks and welcome the inconsistent Spurs to the Emirates. 3 points for the home team but it won’t be straight forward.

Birmingham 1 v 3 Chelsea, 15:00 – a tough looking fixture for injury-plagued Chelsea but they have the desire and team spirit to put all that to one side and win at St Andrews.

Blackpool 2 v 0 Wolverhampton, 15:00 – This will be a game Wolves manager Mick McCarthy will have down as “must get something from” but we expect Blackpool to win after their great start in the first third of the season.

Bolton 1 v 1 Newcastle, 15:00 – This game is always a tight affair with both teams looking for 3 points. A draw is therefore the most likely result.

Man Utd 2 v 0 Wigan, 15:00 – a home tie for Manchester United to return to winning ways in, they should take full advantage with an impressive record against Wigan.

West Brom 2 v 1 Stoke, 15:00 – A game destined to be last on MOTD due to the contrasting styles of both teams. Good teams to watch in their own way, they may cancel each other out trying not to be beaten.

Liverpool 2 v 1 West Ham, 17:30 – After another poor performance over Stoke last weekend Liverpool will look to Anfield to cheer them on in a relatively easy home tie, West Ham would settle for a point.


Sunday, 21 November 2010

Blackburn 1 v 1 Aston Villa, 13:30 – A game with the potential to set the pulses racing but will more likely be a scrappy affair and a draw the most likely result.

Fulham 2 v 3 Man City, 16:00 – This game has “goals” written all over it and with Manchester City’s superior firepower we expect them to put back-to-back 0-0 stalemates behind them in an exciting Sunday afternoon encounter with ex-manager Mark Hughes.


Monday, 22 November 2010

Sunderland 2 v 2 Everton, 20:00 – Both teams are in good form and getting results, so expect a draw in this one, with plenty of goals for good measure.

englandvfrance International Preview: England v France

England and France meet at Wembley this evening with both teams likely to field fresh blood. England are likely to give starts to Kieran Gibbs, Jordan Henderson and Andy Carroll while France may start with Younes Kaboul, Mamadou Sakho, Yann M’vila, Dimitri Payet and Kevin Gameiro. Either Kaboul or Sakho could come into the side to replace the injured Phillipe Mexes to play alongside Adil Rami. Hugo Lloris will start in goal and the fullback positions will be filled by Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy of Arsenal. In midfield France will most likely use Alou Diarra alongside Yann M’vila in withdrawn roles allowing the likes of Samir Nasri, Yohann Gourcuff and Florent Malouda to attack, supporting lone striker Karim Benzema.

For England, the line up will most likely be Ben Foster in goal, a back four of Micah Richards, Rio Ferdinand, Phil Jagielka and Kieran Gibbs. The midfield could include Jordan Henderson alongside James Milner, Steven Gerrard and Gareth Barry. Upfront we could see Andy Carroll start with Peter Crouch. The full England squad, after Joe Hart’s withdrawal through injury looks like this:

England squad for the international friendly against France at Wembley on Wednesday, 17 November:

Foster (Birmingham), Loach (Watford), Green (West Ham);

Cahill (Bolton), Gibbs (Arsenal), Jagielka (Everton), Lescott (Man City), Richards (Man City), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Smalling (Man Utd) Warnock (Aston Villa);

Walcott (Arsenal), Wilshere (Arsenal), Young (Aston Villa), Gerrard (Liverpool), Barry (Man City), Johnson (Man City), Milner (Man City), Henderson (Sunderland);

Bothroyd (Cardiff), Carroll (Newcastle), Crouch (Tottenham), Cole (West Ham).

Likely Line-ups:

England (4-4-2): Foster, Richards, Ferdinand, Jagielka, Gibbs, Henderson, Gerrard, Barry, Milner, Carroll, Crouch

France (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Sagna, Rami, Kaboul, Clichy, Diarra, M’vila, Nasri, Gourcuff, Malouda, Benzema
