England: Wednesdays' Premier League Previews

Manchester United vs. Portsmouth
United must put behind them their FA Cup disappointment and, presumably with a near-full-strength team, put Pompey to the sword if their Premier League title ambitions are to be realised...

Chelsea vs. Everton
Chelsea go into this match chasing silverware on three fronts. But trailing Manchester United by four points in the Premier League table having played one more game, a Champions League and FA Cup double has probably now become their more realistic goal, with the first leg of the semi-final of the former, away to Barcelona next Tuesday. Everton are on course for a Europa League place, and will be sizing Chelsea up ahead of their end-of-season Wembley showpiece, which could result in a first FA Cup since 1995. Victory for the Toffees would see them replacing Aston Villa in fifth place. Both clubs would then have five to play.
