Birmingham v Tottenham
Can hardly fault Birmingham for going down at the Bridge can you? Spurs are still far from convincing, easy opposition at home is one thing...
they'll destroy them now...bet on Spurs, seriously
Verdict: 0-2 Tarquin: 1-0
Fulham v Aston Villa
Difficult, neither side has had a good win in a month (league), Villa haven't even scored since before Christmas, but we all know they're a good side, and it really depends on who turns up...for both sides, sometimes Fulham turn it on at home, other times they're a bit ropey, so I'm going for a draw
Verdict: 1-2 Tarquin: 1-1
Hull v Wolves
One home game I'd expect Hull to win, though don't count on it
Verdict: 0-0 Tarquin: 1-0
Liverpool v Bolton
The sort of game I'd expect Liverpool to throw away two perfectly good points, but now they're getting desperate they'll probably win - and Lawro's analysis is right for once - stop playing 10 defenders, Rafa! Put Benayoun on!
Verdict: 2-1 Tarquin: 2-0
West Ham v Blackburn
Blackburn are the fourth worst away team in the league (behind Burnley, Hull and Sunderland, if you're interested) - even West Ham will fancy this, but Benni to score? I'd say that about a real striker...but Benni? OK, maybe West Ham will get a penalty, but that's as far as I'm going
Verdict: 2-1 Tarquin: 0-0
Wigan v Everton
Mikel is back! My favourite fantasy league player! Unfortunately with Liverpool, Chelsea and United up next I'm not getting him just yet, but good for Everton to have him back - did you know Wigan have only played one home game in nearly 2 months? Well they have, I'm favouring Mikel to set up a few...
Verdict: 0-2 Tarquin: 1-2
Burnley v Chelsea (1730 GMT)
I think it'll be too hard to keep Chelsea off the scoresheet, Burnley ended that famous run in October, four draws since, but not Chelsea, surely...
Verdict: 0-2 Tarquin: 0-3
Man City v Portsmouth (1330 GMT)
I did put that relegation bet on at the start of the season didn't I? I wonder if it applies to non-existent clubs...
Verdict: 2-0 Tarquin: 4-0
Arsenal v Manchester United (1600 GMT)
Just a point - but there hasn't actually been a typical 'big four' draw all season, so while this probably will be a draw now I'm down for a Gunners win, I think they'll expose United's frailties at the back
Verdict: 1-1 Tarquin 2-1
Sunderland v Stoke (2000 GMT)
Both sides are heavily reliant on home form...therefore...
Verdict: 1-1 Tarquin 2-0
