Premier League (Wk 32)

Great week for Man U - 4 second half goals against the Hammers and one foot in the CL semis... sweet. No Rooney tomorrow at home to Fulham (do they bring that statue with them to away games?) but it's hard to bet against United at the moment. Fulham have only lost one of the last 4 games against Man U, and the Cottagers are on a decent run of league form - 2 defeats in their last 11 - so I don't expect this to be a walk in the park. United by the odd goal.

Arsenal, Arsenal, Arsenal... you remain an enigma. Last week, with the quadruple a distant memory, you'd have put your house on them to beat a struggling Blackburn. Alas, the Gunners racked up their third draw on the trot. They're away to Blackpool on Sunday and the Seasiders need some get out of jail free cards fast, as their season (after a fairytale beginning) is on the verge of imploding. I think it'll be a nervy one, but expect the Gunners to come out on top.

After giving City some shit about recent mediocre performances, they go and hammer Sunderland (who have only picked up one point out of a possible 18) 5-0. Still, City don't convince me, and I expect them to be on the losing side against Liverpool on Monday.

Chelsea, after looking like favourites to pick a bit of silverware this year, could easily end up with nowt. It'll be interesting to see how they bounce back after that midweek CL defeat, but they should put a few past bottom of the table Wigan tomorrow. Can 'NiƱo' Torres finally shake off that Scouse curse?

Spurs' dream run in the CL finally ran out of steam against Madrid, and their chances of getting back into it next season hang by a very fine thread. It looks like Harry has used up most of his chips in Europe, and not left many to play with in the Prem - Spurs haven't won in their last 4 bouts. It certainly won't be an easy game tomorrow against Stoke.

The nether region of the table has got dogfight written all over it, and it's shaping up to be a bobby dazzler of a finish. One thing that I can say for certain is that if you're a supporter of a team beginning with W or B, then you're going to be sweating it until the fat bird sings.

Prem Predos (Ladbrokes have just sent an email telling me to keep up the good work):

Wolves 2 1 Everton
Blackburn 1 1 Birmingham
Bolton 2 1 W Ham
Chelsea 3 0 Wigan
Man U 1 0 Fulham
Sunderland 2 1 WBA
Spurs 2 0 Stoke
Blackpool 1 3 Arsenal
Villa 1 1 Newcastle
Liverpool 2 1 City
