Saturday football
And we’re back.

How much will the absence of a crowd impact home advantage? According to the redoubtable Lawro, “there is often a negative vibe at London Stadium, so it is possible that an absence of fans will not hurt West Ham's chances as much as it might do to other sides.” He may or may not be right, but remains a tosser.

WATFORD vs LEICESTER CITY (1230 ko)
Watford’s upturn – from relegation probables to membership of a group of possibles – has been little short of sensational. Yet they remain frustratingly inconsistent, able to beat the nearly-all-conquering Liverpool by three goals but unable to find the net at all in almost half their league games. Leicester’s defence is painfully parsimonious and they will be in no mood, one hopes, to discover generosity now. Troy Deeney, whose mere presence always seems to add oomph to his team, is set to start for the Hornets, while the league’s top scorer Jamie Vardy will hope to bag his 100th Premier League goal. Give him a hattrick. A solid Foxes victory will set the day up nicely. Away win.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs ARSENAL (1500 ko)
Brighton have yet to win in 2020 and they have an unenviable run-in. Their opposition in the coming three weeks includes Man U, Man C, Liverpool and Leicester. Today’s visitors arrive chastened by a good thumping at the hands of the reigning champions, but still have an outside chance of a fifth placed finish. That should be all the incentive they need to put in a performance. They also have the advantage of David Luiz’s card-enforced absence. The skies are dark for the Seagulls. They may darken further this afternoon. Away win.

WEST HAM UNITED vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS (1730 ko)
While heavy clouds look set to dominate the south coast skyline, blue, claret and pretty bubbles will be in the air above Stratford. Until kick-off anyway. The bubbles machine will be in attendance. We go into this on the back of some useful performances against Southampton, Liverpool and Arsenal. Whether that momentum has carried through the lockdown is hard to say, although the Premier League games in the last couple of days suggest that it will. Jarrod Bowen has already shown his goal-scoring prowess in the top league. He will relish the chance to issue a reminder of what he can do. The last three months will have given him a chance to reflect on his good start for West Ham. Wolves are a hard side to break down and Adam Traore, who is said to be fit, has a substantial menace factor. They sit tantalisingly close to a European spot and will hope to boost their push for a top-five finish today. So a hard game beckons, but one not without opportunity. Brain says draw. Home win.

BOURNEMOUTH vs CRYSTAL PALACE (1945 ko)
An important game. The Cherries are in the bottom three on goal difference, while Palace are safe. Roy Hodgson is a wily old campaigner – and a professional one to boot. He’s certainly not the type to allow his team to sit back and simply play out the remaining fixtures. Eddie Howe faces no such quandary. His achievement in charge of Bournemouth is on par with that of any great manager in the modern game, albeit not at the top of the stack. A tough task now lies ahead, possibly as tough as any he has experienced to date, with a raft of top teams still to play. Today will be a good indicator of how much fight is left in the Bournemouth tank. On form alone, Palace should not leave the Vitality empty handed. Draw.
