The penultimate game of the season is upon us, and this time it looks like winner takes all in the battle for Europe!
Back in August who would have had Pompey and Everton in a crunch fixture fighting for a proverbial six-pointer? Many maybe, but most would have had both teams nearer the foot of the table, rather than in a titanic struggle for a place in the UEFA spots for next season. Whoever comes out on top in this one will be almost guaranteed a hallowed European place. This fact has not been lost on either Harry Redknapp or David Moyes, both who have said the game is a 'must win'
Tim Howard is available again after his enforced abscence from the Manchester United game last week, Anichebe, Valente and Johnson are all struggling for the match, the Toffees are also missing the talasmanic Tim Cahill.
Who else? If ever a player had the opportunity to turn round and bite former suitors on the arse, this is it.
Big doubts over Taylor, Hughes,Stefanovic and Sol Campbell, although is a glimmer of hope that an injection in Sol's achilles may give him a chance
Time to shine for our favourite Croatian, his promise is looking more likely to fulfil itself of late, and his creative spark could unlock the Everton defence.
A Duncan Ferguson own goal gave Pompey the points last season, and Matt Taylors goal from the half-way line earned him second place in goal of the month on match of the day at Fratton this season.
A win one way or the other, a draw will do neither side much good, so the odd goal should pinch it. (Time to break the duck, Kanu)
Arsenal at Fratton next Sunday
