Pompey, aiming to maintain our unbeaten start to the season face Charlton, with us travelling to the Valley, scene of a defeat totally against the run of play last season that had people worrying again about Pompey's ability to avoid relegation, as we know we all know the outcome! What about the other Barclays Premiership games this weekend...
Bolton v Middlesbrough, 15:00
Having seemed likely to miss out for some time Stelios Giannakopoulos (groin) has recovered and should make an instant return to the team, however injured Kevin Davies, Henrik Pedersen, Joey O`Brien and Ricardo Gardner remain absent.
In only his second game for the club with George Boateng suspended, the on loan Jonathan Woodgate will take the captains armband. With Boateng`s suspension and Stuart Downing injured Adam Johnson and Lee Cattermole will step in.
Everton v Wigan, 15:00
Other than James McFadden`s injury, which will rule him out for some time and Alan Stubbs still not over his knee injury Everton will have a near full strength squad to select from.
Former toffee Kevin Kilbane is set for his Wigan debut against his old side. With Henri Camara (hamstring) a doubt on loan Pompey forward Svetoslav Todorov could also make his debut. A knee injury could see midfielder Lee McCulloch miss out though.
Sheff Utd v Reading, 15:00
Danny Webber (groin) had to be replaced last weekend, so his replacement Christian Nade is likely to retain his place in Webber`s absence. Despite being fit Claude Davis, Leigh Bromby and Craig Short are unlikely to start. To play Michael Tonge will need to come through a fitness test.
Having scored the winner against Man City on Monday, Ivar Ingimarsson, following blurred vision has been passed fit having not suffered concussion. Other defenders Sam Sodje and Aaron Brown, along with forward Dave Kitson remain sidelined.
Watford v Aston Villa, 17:15
Chris Powell has a calf injury so Jordan Stewart will deputise for the former England man. A chest infection has ruled out Clarke Carlisle recently, with him again set to miss out.
After scored in the midweek reserve game with Pompey Milan Baros could make his first start to the season. Having missed the season through injury so far Wilfred Bouma could feature, with new arrival Didier Agathe named in the squad after impressing his former Celtic boss whilst on trial.
Blackburn v Man City, 15:00
A back problem will rule Blackburn`s Ireland International midfielder Steven Reid out, however Francis Jeffers should return.
With Ousmane Dabo suspended following his sending off at Reading Dietmar Hamann should come in for his long awaiting debut. American DaMarcus Beasley could play, but a place on the bench more likely. Sun Jihai, Darius Vassell, Nedum Onuoha and Andreas Isakson remain injured.
Chelsea v Liverpool, 13:30
Arjan Robben (calf) has missed Chelsea`s last four games but is back in the squad. Joe Cole (knee) however will miss out after a return in the midweek Champions League game.
Having aggravated his injury in the Merseyside defeat last weekend John Arne Riise is defiantly out. Peter Crouch and Sami Hyypia may have to be content with places on the bench, with Daniel Agger likely to keep Hyypia out.
Man Utd v Arsenal, 16:00
Having missed the Celtic game in midweek through suspension Cristiano Ronaldo should return, however Ryan Giggs misses out through injury, Park Ji-Sung (ankle) is out but Nemanja Vidic and Alan Smith are now back in the squad.
Thierry Henry (foot) looks likely to miss this clash of the titan`s battle, with Arsene Wenger also having Robin Van Persie a doubt with a hip injury. Freddie Ljungberg will be hoping to return with Kolo Toure also returning.
Tottenham v Fulham, 15:00
Aaron Lennon will be ruled out for up to six week, while striker Dimitar Berbatov (groin) is a doubt. Danny Murphy and Hossam Ghaly return from injury.
Chris Coleman has midfielders Jimmy Bullard (probably out for the season), Simon Elliot and Ahmad Elrich injured and as he is on loan from Spurs Wayne Routledge is unable to play, Claus Jensen however should return.
West Ham v Newcastle, 15:00
A substitute for the UEFA Cup tie Marlon Harewood should return to the starting XI. Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano should also feature.
Titus Bramble and Steven Taylor will need late fitness tests, so Peter Ramage stands by. Hamstring injuries see Celestine Babayaro and Nolberto Solano miss out. Having recently returned to St James` Olivier Bernard is short of match fitness.
There is also one midweek Premiership fixture, Liverpool take on Newcastle on Wednesday with a 20:00 kick off.
