Premiership Preview (05-07/05/07)

Pompey go to Goodison in our latest and final away Barclays Premiership match of the season, what about the other fixtures.

Saturday, 05/05/07
Aston Villa v Sheff Utd
Shaun Maloney (ankle) will miss out through injury. Ashley Young and former Pompey star Patrik Berger are fighting for a starting place.

Sheff United have a near full squad to choose from with only Rob Hulse (knee) remaining the major long-term absentee.

Fulham v Liverpool
Only Franck Queudrue (ankle) and Ian Pearce (calf) are the major concerns for Fulham and both miss out.

Liverpool will be looking to rest players after making the champions league final with Steven Gerrard being one of them. Italian U21 keeper Daniele Padelli could make his debut with Emiliano Insua playing as he did against Pompey last week.

Man City v Man Utd
Michael Johnson is set to replace Joey Barton who has been banned by the club for the rest of the season after fighting with a team-mate in training.

Rio Ferdinand, Louis Saha and Alan Smith are set to return for United along with Patrice Evra (suspension) with Gabriel Heinze possibly missing out after another midweek horror show.

Newcastle v Blackburn
Scott Parker and Nicky Butt (both ankle) are struggling but Emre, Damien Duff and Antoine Sibierski are all out. Michael Owen (knee) and Shola Ameobi (hip) made returns on Monday and could continue.

David Dunn (thigh) and Zurab Khizanishvili (knee) are both out, Tugay is set to replace Dunn in an otherwise unchanged side.

Reading v Watford
Leroy Lita (suspension) and Steve Sidwell could return. Graeme Murty (calf) and Glen Little (Achilles) however are out.

Clarke Carlisle (suspension) and Jay DeMerit (rested) miss out so Dan Shittu, Adrian Mariappa, Lloyd Doyley and Cedric Avinel are pushing for starting places. Jordan Stewart requires a fitness test but Gavin Mahon is doubtful.

West Ham v Bolton
Matthew Upson (calf) and Danny Gabbidon (groin) are both still out but West Ham have no other fresh injury worries.

Kevin Nolan (ankle) could return in Sammy Lee's first match as Bolton manager. Stelios Giannakopoulos (groin) and Abdoulaye Faye (toe) require fitness tests but Tal Ben Haim, El-Hadji Diouf and Nicky Hunt are out.

Wigan v Middlesbrough
Antonio Valencia (suspension) is set to return but former Pompey skipper Arjan de Zeeuw (ankle) will miss out.

Abel Xavier (knee) is doubtful having recovered from a back problem. Julio Arca could return but Andrew Taylor will play his last match before an operation on his big toe.

Sunday, 06/05/07
Arsenal v Chelsea
Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) is doubtful and could join Freddie Ljungberg (hamstring), Thierry Henry (groin and stomach), Robin van Persie (broken foot) and Theo Walcott (shoulder) in missing out.

Ricardo Carvalho (knee) and Andriy Shevchenko (groin) are out along with Michael Ballack (ankle ligament) who is out for the season.

Monday, 07/05/07
Charlton v Tottenham
Ben Thatcher (suspension) is out and Hermann Hreidarsson (knee) is a doubt. Scott Carson plays what could be his final match for Charlton.

Robbie Keane (ankle) is a doubtful. Mido, Paul Stalteri and Lee Young-Pyo are out but Teemu Tainio (ankle), Benoit Assou-Ekotto (knee) and Anthony Gardner (broken leg) are back in training.

You can't really seeing Reading slipping up against Watford can you... West Ham will get a point at least against Bolton I think... Spurs might just get beaten by Charlton, but a point wouldn't be too bad for us if they got that... Add this to our game - if we can get that win which I have this feeling we can, if other results go as I feel they might we would be sitting in 6th place come Monday night...
