Premiership Preview (14-15/04/07)

Pompey entertain Newcastle in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others - including the FA cup semis.

Saturday, 14 April 2007
Arsenal v Bolton, 15:00
Tomas Rosicky (virus) returns but injury sees Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott still unavailable. Emmanuel Eboue should continue whilst Denilson is after a recall.

Kevin Nolan (suspension) returns but Tal Ben Haim (hamstring) is a doubt. Joey O'Brien and Quinton Fortune remain long-term absentees.

Man City v Liverpool, 15:00
Dietmar Hamann and Stephen Jordan are available but Paul Dickov (knee) and Micah Richards (ankle) miss out.

Steven Gerrard, Steve Finnan, Jamie Carragher and Javier Mascherano are likely to return after being rested but Craig Bellamy (knee ligament) misses out.

Middlesbrough v Aston Villa, 15:00
Emanuel Pogatetz and James Morrison (both suspension) are out for the game and Julio Arca (groin) is a doubtful but Jonathan Woodgate (hamstring) and Lee Cattermole (suspension) return.

Patrick Berger (hamstring) is doubtful and could join John Carew (calf) and Gavin McCann (ban) in missing out. Gary Cahill and Wilfred Bouma should be fit.

Reading v Fulham, 15:00
Steve Sidwell may miss out as Reading look at other options as his expected summer exit nears. Leroy Lita will be suspended after being charged with violent conduct.

Pompey's nemesis Ian Pearce (foot injury) could return but Jimmy Bullard, Mark Pembridge and Simon Elliott remain long-term injury absentees.

Sheff Utd v West Ham, 15:00
Phil Jagielka (groin) should return but Christian Nade (twisted ankle) and Danny Webber (foot) are doubtful but with victory a must may play some part.

Bobby Zamora has a knee problem but should feature nevertheless whilst Calum Davenport (foot) should return.

The FA Cup sponsored by E.ON
Watford v Man Utd, 17:30
Ben Foster (ineligible) will miss out under the term of his loan agreement so Richard Lee will deputise. Clarke Carlisle returned against Pompey so will hope to keep his place while James Chambers hopes to shake off a knock.

Louis Saha (hamstring) is out with John O'Shea (calf) a minor doubt. Paul Scholes (suspension) can return.

Sunday, 15 April 2007
Everton v Charlton, 15:00
James Vaughan (ankle) and Victor Anichebe (thigh) will miss out while former Pompey midfielder Manuel Fernandes (calf) is doubtful. James Beattie and James McFadden are after recalls.

Hermann Hreidarsson (knee) and Marcus Bent (hamstring) are out with Jerome Thomas (knee) a doubt. Madjid Boughera and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink are both fit to return though.

Wigan v Tottenham, 13:30
David Unsworth (groin), Fitz Hall (knee) and Emmerson Boyce (rib) are all out of the Wigan defence, Antonio Valencia is suspended.

Ricardo Rocha could return whilst Ledley King should continue his comeback after coming through the UEFA Cup tie with Sevilla. Paul Stalteri (hip) is doubtful while Tom Huddlestone (knee problem) is out.

The FA Cup sponsored by E.ON
Blackburn v Chelsea, 17:30
Only the long-term injury absentees Steven Reid and Robbie Savage are the only problems for Blackburn.

Chelsea came through midweek unscathed so other than Arjen Robben (knee) who is still out like Blackburn they have no other major injury problems.

No More Quarter Final Replays For Pompey

Should Portsmouth progress through to an FA Cup quarter final from the 2016/17 season onwards, the game will no longer be subject to a replay.

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.
