Premiership Preview (25-26/11/06)

Pompey travel to Newcastle with us looking to stop our recent poor away form (after three straight away defeats) for our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others…

Saturday 25/11/06
Aston Villa v Middlesbrough, 15:00
Chris Sutton (calf) is a doubt for Villa but Gavin McCann (suspension), Stilian Petrov (hamstring) and Aaron Hughes (groin) are all back.

Mark Viduka and Stewart Parnaby miss out for sure whilst Stewart Downing (groin) is only 50:50. George Boateng and Andrew Davies should both return though.

Bolton v Arsenal, 17:15
Quinton Fortune (groin) is back as is captain Kevin Nolan after missing the previous match to attend the birth of his son. Ricardo Gardner is nearing a return after his long-term knee injury.

Thierry Henry (neck) joins Tomas Rosicky and William Gallas on the sidelines whilst Robin van Persie is suspended. Emmanuel Adebayor and Theo Walcott are looking for rare starts.

Charlton v Everton, 12:45
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (thigh) could miss out and Souleymane Diawara (hamstring) is also a doubt. Djimi Traore (broken leg) is back in the frame as is Amdy Faye who returns from a suspension.

James McFadden (suspension) and Simon Davies (thigh) are back but Tim Cahill, Tony Hibbert, Alessandro Pistone and Gary Naysmith are all still missing for Everton.

Fulham v Reading, 15:00
Papa Bouba Diop (thigh) is a doubt and could join Michael Brown (ankle) and Simon Elliott (Achilles) in missing out, Elliott will be out for the foreseeable future.

Dave Kitson, Peter Mate, Aaron Brown and Bobby Convey remain Reading`s only injury concerns, all four definitely miss out. Glen Little (foot) should be fit to feature.

Liverpool v Man City, 15:00
Xabi Alonso, Mark Gonzalez (both hamstring) and Stephen Warnock (groin) all miss out whilst Jermaine Pennant (hamstring) is very doubtful. Craig Bellamy has a court case in Cardiff but should still be in the squad at least.

Trevor Sinclair (knee), DaMarcus Beasley (ankle) and Sun Jihai (hamstring) will all be missing for City but Dietmar Hamann (thigh) has recovered but may have to settle for a place on the bench against his former side.

West Ham v Sheff Utd, 15:00
Alan Pardew has no fresh injury worries so is expected to name and unchanged squad and team to that which featured last week.

David Sommeil (ankle), Danny Webber (hamstring), Michael Tonge (ankle) and Chris Armstrong (knee) miss the match but Leigh Bromby (hamstring) could return.

Sunday 26/11/06
Man Utd v Chelsea, 16:00
The top of the table clash sees United with no fresh injury doubt with Rio Ferdinand (foot) being passed fit.

Salomon Kalou remains sidelined but Didier Drogba and Michael Ballack should recover from the knocks picked up in the Champions League. Ricardo Carvalho (ankle) is back in the squad along with Frank Lampard.

Tottenham v Wigan, 15:00
Anthony Gardner (knee), Paul Stalteri (knee) and Hossam Ghaly (suspension) are all out for Spurs while Jermaine Jenas (calf) is a doubt. Aaron Lennon, Pascal Chimbonda and Teemu Tainio are all back though.

Fitz Hall (ankle) is struggling, while Leighton Baines and Emile Heskey (both calf) are both likely to miss out.

tight game I think and as above the snow and torrential storms will no doubt create a nice swirley atmosphere around each goal area justfor fun................a draw would seem pretty realistic.
