Liverpool look thoroughly useless against a fair to moderate Wigan side. Created as many chances as I’ve had hot dinners. Yesterday. One. A while back you’d expect them to pull a goal back, and then another, but they never once looked like they would. Honestly, if this team manages to finish fourth then we should all be very ashamed. Also, Stevie G flips the bird at the referee.
Tonight Arsenal take on Porto with Fabregas missing.. and you know what that means. I fully expect them to win the game, but I also expect them to concede about 3. Could they be the first Premier League casualty of the season? Liverpool don’t count.
Bayern travel to Fiorentina in the other CL match of the evening, carrying a 2-1 advantage with them. If Ribery is playing then it should be an easy win.
Pompey host Brum again in a direct replay of Saturday’s match, although you have to think that this match matters much less to them. The cup is something achievable, Premier League survival is not. However, after seeing some of Birmingham’s passing and defending on the weekend I wouldn’t be backing them with stolen money.
Sunderland also host in form Bolton. I say in form, they’ve won a game recently. Which is far more than you can say for Sunderland. Away win
