Arsenal v Tottenham
Is the North London Derby just what the doctor ordered to stop the rot at Ashburton Grove? It’s obvious that without Henry the Gunners face an even more severe test. But how will his comrades perform after the misery of their last tow outings? Is it just a rot or a true crisis? Jol had his lads up for this fixture last campaign and there’s no better time than the present for Spurs to pick up an away win in this juicy local derby. A wounded beast Arsenal may be, but the beast appears to have been declawed.
I like the Rovers here, simply because after their big win against Arsenal the trip north will be difficult for Fulham.
Villa were humbled last time out and a trip to the south coast won’t be smooth sailing. That said, I like Martin’s Men to pick up a point. They’re still draw specialists in my book and I think Pompey have been overachieving just a smidge too much of late. ‘Arry’s due a disappointment in the form of two lost points.
Sheffield United v Charlton
It’s another excellent opportunity for United to pick up all three points with Charlton coming to town. I still don’t see the wisdom in dropping Ian Dowie so soon but the backroom antics may have been too much, who knows? Still, it’s only Darren Bent that can knock them in with any regularity for the Addicks and that won’t be enough on this trip. Look for Sheffield United to do the business.
