7.45pm, ASTON VILLA V ARSENAL
Arsenal are the slight favourites at 13/10 with Totesport.
Arsene Wenger will be welcoming back his first choice back four for tonights trip to Villa, rather strangely he didn’t rest Fabregas for the FA Cup defeat to Stoke on Sunday.
It was Fabregas who took Villa apart during a brief substitute appearence when the two sides met in late December. Since that defeat Villa have only picked up four points from their last three league games.
7.45pm, CHELSEA V BIRMINGHAM
Birmingham are 14/1 with VC Bet, Totesport and Bet365. This seems a massive price on McLeish’s men given that they are unbeaten in 15 games, obviously the bookies don’t see that run continuing tonight.
Chelsea have hit 14 goals in their three games played so far in 2010, with half of them coming against Sunderland. The other seven came in more difficult fixtures, with two games against lower league opposition.
8pm, BLACKBURN V WIGAN
Wigan can be backed at 10/3 with Betfred.
These two sides have both recently recorded big wins with Blackburn beating Fulham and Wigan winning away at Wolves. Blackburn have put a bit of daylight between themselves and the bottom three and will be looking at this fixture as a great chance to pull further clear.
Wigan have been one of the leagues most unpredictable teams and the fact that they won last time out probably means they are due a defeat. Basically don’t go near Wigan on your fixed odds coupon.
8pm, EVERTON V SUNDERLAND
Live on Sky Sports 2 (programme starts at 7.30pm), Everton take on Steve Bruce’s struggling Sunderland. Although there seems to be quite a few teams between the Black Cats and the bottom three, they are only 3 points clear.
They have won only one of their last 12 games since the beachball goal back in October.
And I thought it was Liverpool that it was suppossed to have affected.
Everton looked to have turned the corner recently with a good performance away at Arsenal which resulted in a draw after a late Gunnersl equaliser. This was followed with a home demolition of Man City with a 2-0 win, flattering to City. Then they lost their home FA tie to Birmingham last Saturday, although no disgrace given the run Birmingham are currently on.
One thing is for certain and that is that Steve Bruce could badly do with a win.
