Premiership Preview (28-30/04/07)

Liverpool come to Fratton in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the other fixtures.

Saturday, 28 April 2007
Blackburn v Charlton
Tugay is pushing for a recall to the starting line up but Blackburn look set to name an unchanged side once again.

Ben Thatcher (hip) and Marcus Bent (hamstring) return from injury but Andy Reid (hamstring) is a long-term absentee.

Chelsea v Bolton
Arjen Robben (knee) could be back in the Chelsea squad even though it was thought he might miss the rest of the season and Michael Essien (suspension) returns. Michael Ballack (ankle) is doubtful though.

El Hadji Diouf, Tal Ben Haim and Abdoulaye Faye are all injured whilst Kevin Nolan, Nicky Hunt and Stelios Giannakopoulos require fitness tests.

Everton v Man Utd
Andy Johnson (sprained ankle) is battling to be fit but looks like missing out. Tim Howard (ineligible) can't play against United under the terms of his loan.

Mikael Silvestre (dislocated shoulder) is out for the season whilst Gary Neville and Nemanja Vidic (both ankle) remain sidelined. Rio Ferdinand (groin) is also out but Alan Smith could return with Louis Saha (hamstring) still doubtful.

Man City v Aston Villa
Paul Dickov returns after injury and Emile Mpenza (hip) could return but Michael Johnson and DaMarcus Beasley (both hamstring) are out.

John Carew (foot) was the only fresh doubt for Villa but will be fit.

Middlesbrough v Tottenham
With Abel Xavier (back) and Julio Arca (groin) returning Boro have no injury problems ahead of this game.

Paul Stalteri returns but Anthony Gardner, Young-Pyo Lee and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are out. Teemu Tainio (sprained ankle) is also out and Mido (groin) is a doubt.

Sheff Utd v Watford
Phil Jagielka (groin), Derek Geary (hamstring) and Nick Montgomery (foot) are all braced for returns.

Damien Francis (knee), Tommy Smith (hamstring) and forward Steven Kabba, who cannot play against his former club are out and Jordan Stewart, James Chambers (both ankle) and Darius Henderson (calf) are doubtful.

Wigan v West Ham
Lee McCulloch (badly-bruised foot) looks like he might return but Ryan Taylor (foot) is a doubt and Antonio Valencia completes a suspension.

Matthew Upson (calf) and Danny Gabbidon (groin) are out for the season. Other than looking down the barrel of relegation and picking up a £5.5m fine West Ham have no other worries!

Sunday, 29 April 2007
Arsenal v Fulham
Tomas Rosicky and Freddie Ljungberg (both hamstring) are out for this match at least.

Franck Queudrue (ankle) and Ian Pearce (calf) are still out along with long-term absentees Jimmy Bullard, Mark Pembridge and Simon Elliott.

Monday, 30 April 2007
Reading v Newcastle
Graeme Murty, Glen Little, Bobby Convey and Ibrahima Sonko are sidelined through injury while Leroy Lita is suspended.

Michael Owen could return after 10 months out whilst Shola Ameobi is also in contention. Scott Parker and Antoine Sibierski could play but Shay Given and Damien Duff are out.

Cookie isn't too hopeful of Wilkinson being fit for the play-offs against Plymouth, which means Pompey are probably unlikely to ever see the Bolton striker in a Blues shirt!
