Premiership Preview (28-29/11/06)
Pompey are on the road again as we face Liverpool at Anfield in our latest Barclays Premiership match hoping for a better showing than Sunday! What about the others…
Watford v Sheff Utd, 20:00
Hameur Bouazza (ankle) is a major doubt for Watford in this crucial encounter and is likely to join Ben Foster, Marlon King (both knee) and Clarke Carlisle (thigh) on the sidelines.
Danny Webber (hamstring) is likely to return but Sheff United do have injury worries, the names of which are not being revealed by Neil Warnock.
Aston Villa v Man City, 19:45
Thomas Sorensen (knee ligament) is out so Stuart Taylor plays in goal. Chris Sutton (calf) is out so Milan Baros may come in?
DaMarcus Beasley (ankle) is fit again so returns to the squad but City are set to name an unchanged side from that which suffered defeat at the weekend.
Bolton v Chelsea, 20:00
Nicky Hunt (hamstring) and Quinton Fortune (ankle) who came off injured in the victory over Arsenal are both doubtful
Salomon Kalou (medial ligament) misses out but Didier Drogba (ankle) and Michael Ballack (calf) should be OK to play.
Fulham v Arsenal, 19:45
Franck Queudrue (shin) and Carlos Bocanegra (hamstring) are injured whilst Ian Pearce is suspended following a red card at the weekend. Despite having a groin injury Philippe Christanval will step in
Robin van Persie (suspension) is back and Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) could also be back. Thierry Henry (neck) has to prove his fitness in order to return though, and this isn't looking good.
Man Utd v Everton, 20:00
Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Saha picked up injuries against Chelsea and are both doubtful. Ryan Giggs looks likely to play up front if Saha misses out, meaning John O'Shea and Darren Fletcher may come into midfield.
Andy Johnson (hamstring) is highly unlikely to make this game, Tim Howard (ineligible) definitely misses out as he can't play against United under the terms of his loan deal.
