Premiership Preview (21-22/04/07)
Pompey go Villa Park in our latest Barclays Premiership match with Villa, what about the other fixtures.
Bolton v Reading, 15:00
Ivan Campo (suspension) misses out so Andranik Teymourian will fill in. Tal Ben Haim (thigh) is struggling so could miss out.
Kevin Doyle (hamstring) is fit but Leroy Lita (suspension), Graeme Murty and Glen Little (both injury) are out. Steve Sidwell was dropped last week as he will not sign a new deal so might miss out again.
Charlton v Sheff Utd, 15:00
Darren Bent (thigh) is a concern but should be fit. Marcus Bent (hamstring strain) is more of a worry though. Hermann Hreidarsson and Jerome Thomas could feature.
Keith Gillespie, Chris Armstrong and Christian Nade were rested against United but should return as should Jon Stead.
Fulham v Blackburn, 15:00
Ian Pearce and Franck Queudrue (both injury) are out so Liam Rosenior and Moritz Volz will fill in in their absence.
Blackburn are likely to name an unchanged side for the third match running with only Shabani Nonda (knee) joining their long-term absentees.
Liverpool v Wigan, 15:00
Craig Bellamy (knee) and Xabi Alonso (thigh strain) return to the Liverpool side after injury but with a champions league semi final coming up Liverpool will more than likely be doing some squad rotation.
Lee McCulloch (severe foot bruising) is likely to miss out along with former Pompey defender David Unsworth (groin strain). Antonio Valencia (is suspended) and Chris Kirkland and Fitz Hall (both injury) are out for the season.
Man Utd v Middlesbrough, 17:15
Rio Ferdinand, John O'Shea and Patrice Evra are fit to return but Park Ji-Sung (knee), Louis Saha (hamstring) and Nemanja Vidic are out.
Julio Arca (groin tear) is out and Abel Xavier (back) is doubtful but Robert Huth and Mark Viduka are set to return.
Tottenham v Arsenal, 12:45
Ledley King and Tom Huddlestone (knee) should return but Lee Young-Pyo, Anthony Gardner and Benoit Assou-Ekotto miss out. Robbie Keane (knee) and Paul Stalteri (hip) are doubts.
Cesc Fabregas (virus) could miss out, joining Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie and Theo Walcott whilst Freddie Ljungberg (hamstring) and Abou Diaby (head) are also doubtful.
Watford v Man City, 15:00
Tommy Smith (hamstring) and James Chambers (ankle) were injured during midweek but should be fit. But Darius Henderson (calf) is doubtful and Gareth Williams and Moses Ashikodi are out for the season.
Emile Mpenza (hip injury) is doubtful and Micah Richards (ankle and calf) is out so City are likely to name an unchanged side from their midweek one.
West Ham v Everton, 15:00
Anton Ferdinand (groin) is set to return but Calum Davenport (foot), Matthew Upson (calf) and Danny Gabbidon (groin) are struggling.
Nuno Valente is fit to return whilst Mikel Arteta and Alan Stubbs are also over minor knocks. Victor Anichebe (ankle) has come through a fitness test, but James Vaughan is out.
Newcastle v Chelsea, 13:30
Michael Owen (groin strain) has had his comeback delayed and Shola Ameobi is short of fitness. Shay Given (groin) is also out but Kieron Dyer, Scott Parker and Antoine Sibierski could all return.
Arjen Robben (knee ligament damage) is still the only major injury problem for Chelsea. Andriy Shevchenko (leg) should return after missing out in midweek.
