THIS is easily the match-of-the-week. Expect an exhilarating tie as Arsenal try to hang on to third spot in the standings while Chelsea hope to close the gap on fourth-placed Spurs. The Blues are clearly on the rise, especially after seeing off Spanish giants Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals, first-leg tie in midweek. Arsenal, however, are still
reeling from last week’s loss to Wigan and news that Mikel Arteta is out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury.
QPR 1 SPURS 2
BOTH teams are coming off losses from last week. QPR went down 1-0 to West Brom in the League while Spurs were thrashed 5-1 by Chelsea in the semi-final of the FA Cup. Today’s clash is vital for both teams for various reasons. QPR need the points to pull further away from the drop zone while Spurs need a win to stay fourth – and ensure a spot in the
Champions League next season. It will be tough battle but Spurs have the quality to nick all three points.
MAN UTD 1 EVERTON 0
ALEX Ferguson’s men will be looking to stretch their lead over neighbours Manchester City to eight points (at least for a few hours as Mancini’s men take on Wolves later) by beating Everton at Old Trafford tomorrow. Should United slip up, which is unlikely, and City overcome Wolves, that will mean the Red Devils’ lead will be cut to just two points.
Wayne Liew is a die-hard Manchester United fan and the highlight for him was the year the Red Devils lifted three titles – the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League – in 1999. His all-time favourite United player is David Beckham.
