Coffee 1:18 Sat Jul 4
Saturday and the coming week's football
SATURDAY

NORWICH CITY vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION (1230)
Not so long ago, this would have been a six-pointer. Now, even if Norwich were to win this, it’s likely to be a futile victory. Brighton, meanwhile, have a golden opportunity to all but secure their Premier League status. That’s an incentive and a half. Fair play to the Seagulls. Away win.

LEICESTER CITY vs CRYSTAL PALACE (1500)
Leicester’s return from universal exile has been less than impressive. They’re up against a Palace side that’s safe and with little to play for but the lucre of a higher finish. Can’t say I’m too enthralled by this. Home win.

MANCHESTER UNTED vs BOURNEMOUTH (1500)
Oh dear, the poor old CHERRIES look doomed. Man U are very much on the up and are playing with confidence. The OGS revolution is gathering pace. Let’s hope it gather more this afternoon. Home win.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS vs ARSENAL (1730)
Wolves have been a sensation this season. What’s their secret? Is it all down to man-management and astute buys? This offers all the hallmarks of a very good game – two sides that like to play, one an upstart of sorts, the other an aristocrat down on its luck. Could be a corker. Draw.

CHELSEA vs WATFORD (2000)
Frankie’s been licking his wounds. Pity the Hornets. You can see them being stung by the urge to finish third in a very tight mini-league, and by the pain of resounding, deserved defeat at the hands of potentially the mightiest team on the planet. Well, we can all dream. Home win, with Watford’s goal difference taking a beating.


SUNDAY

BURNLEY vs SHEFFIELD UNITED (1200)
If Burnley, who are sitting pretty and safe in mid-table, can be happy with their season, Sheffield Utd must be beyond ecstatic. Few people will have foreseen their extraordinary return to the top division. Having said that, this looks like a thoroughly tedious game. Draw.

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs WEST HAM UNITED (1415)
Apart from the result, what was particularly pleasing about the Chelsea game was the players’ body language. It was universally positive. Antonio put in a performance of characteristic desire and effort. When Yarmo got the ball at the end, he didn’t look to hide in case he messed things up, his one intention was to score. From the flank, Bowen’s determination to get the ball across set up two goals. This is a huge positive that we can and hopefully will take into the Newcastle game. The hosts come into this also with the confidence of a decent season, the more so after an indifferent start. All that should make for a highly competitive encounter, with fortune likely to go the way of the those with the greater desire to grasp it. It’s hard not to be confident after the midweek performance, although any outcome would not cause surprise. On the fence for this one. Draw.

LIVERPOOL vs ASTON VILLA (1630)
Jurgen Klopp wasn’t happy after the Man City game, was he? It’s time to get things back on track as Liverpool try to break the 100 point barrier. Villa’s boots may quake. Good. Home win.

SOUTHAMPTON vs MANCHESTER CITY (1900)
For Pep, next season has already started. He will expect full commitment from his players in each game. The Saints are safe, but will do well to keep their visitors at bay this evening. Away win.


MONDAY

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs EVERTON (2000)
If they win, Everton will overtake their hosts. Neither side will be entirely happy with their respective seasons and stalemate beckons. Draw.


TUESDAY

CRYSTAL PALACE vs CHELSEA (1800)
Chelsea will still be looking to cement European qualification, while Palace, it would seem, have less to aim for. Away win.

WATFORD vs NORWICH CITY (1800)
An absolute must-win for Watford. They should do at a canter, which will keep the pressure on us. Home win.

ARSENAL vs LEICESTER CITY (2015)
Arsenal can still make Europe, if only by ferry. Boss Arteta will want to lay the foundations for the 2020/21 season, though, and Leicester will provide a decent indication of their hosts’ true quality. Draw.


WEDNESDAY

MANCHESTER CITY vs NEWCASTLE UNITED (1800)
City now have only their followers’ expectations to play to. The Barcodes hopefully come into this on the back of a Sunday defeat and will offer little resistance to the marauding de Bruyne et all. Home win.

SHEFFIELD UNITED vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS (1800)
This should be intriguing. The two stand-out surprises of the Premier League season meet with Europe on both horizons. Draw.

WEST HAM UNITED vs BURNLEY (1800)
We still needs points to ensure safety. This fixture will forever stay in the mind for that flag-in-the-centre-circle display of defiance. Hopefully, the result will be reversed. Home win.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION vs LIVERPOOL (2015)
Are Brighton still in the relegation mix? They won’t relish this if they are. A jolly day by the sea beckons for the Pool. Away win.


THURSDAY

BOURNEMOUTH vs TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (1800)
It’s not often that you want Spurs to win, but this is one of those occasions. If they don’t, stirrings will be heard in north London. Away win.

EVERTON vs SOUTHAMPTON (1800)
Two sides heading for mid-table mediocrity and with little to play for. There are times when that sounds depressingly tempting. Draw.

ASTON VILLA vs MANCHESTER UNITED (2015)
Further progress towards the fading gloom for Villa? It should be. Away win.
