On the only day of the year when all Premiership clubs kick off together, Pompey play host to the gunners looking for a first Premiership win over the North Londoners.
Fabregas has gone to press stating that Pompey will not have it easy over the Gunners as we make a final desperate push for European football, to be fair we wouldn't want it any other way! Pompey have far exceded themselves this season, and the fact we still have something to play for beside Premiership status on the ultimate day of the season is a credit to the side. A highest placing in the leagues for over 50 years is a great achievement, and if we fail in the European quest it must be used as a platform for greater things.
The ex-Arsenal contingent will be slightly lesser than we may have hoped, Lauren has joined Sol Campbell on the treatment bench and will miss a reunion with his old team-mates. Stefanovic also looks likely to dip out once again, but Matt Taylor and Hughes should re-join the squad alongside the fit again Mendes and Todorov.
As the only ex-Arsenal player on the pitch, the big Nigerian could be making his last appearance for the blues, so if he really thinks clubs are queuing up for him, he can do himself and us a favour by banging in a long overdue goal.
Tomas Rosicky looks like joining long term casualtees Henry, Van Persie and Jersey Joe in the stands, but Ljungberg may have shaken off a hamstring strain to play in what many think maybe his last match in red and white.
Last chance for the on-loan Real Madrid man to convince Wenger he is worth a permanent deal in a disapointing spell at the Emirates, he was banging in four goals one minute, and the next flattening his own team mates as they ran through on goal!
Lua scored with his last touch of last season to gain Pompey a point in a game where Sol Campbell bust his nose, no Thierry Henry to run riot this year when so often he has been the difference.
Graham Poll, rumoured to be his last top flight match, any controversy in this one?
A win for Pompey? Why not, Man U are testimony to what we can do on our own patch, a win is a must if we are to have any hope of Europe, so lets hope a great season doesn't go out with a whimper.
Christ knows, Dorchester probably.
