Liverpool v Man Utd
This is the sort of game that you don’t take risk with – no relying on the PVR in order to enjoy another hour in bed. The PVR might fail to kick in, you might inadvertently catch the score and there are countless other possibilities. Do not take the chance – get up and watch the game the way God meant you to.
It may not be a title decider but this game remains one of the marquee matches in the English game.
By the way Paddy Power is offering 16/1 on Wayne Rooney being sent off while the odds are 7/1 that he will score the winning goal. Sir Alex Ferguson is 40/1 to be sent to the stands.
Wolverhampton v Tottenham
A tricky fixture for Spurs as they travel to Molineux where Manchester United, City and Chelsea have all lost already this season. Spurs had a rest last weekend as they were scheduled to play Arsenal but the Carling Cup Final got in the way.
Spurs have the third best away record in the Premier League but with only one clean sheet and they have conceded 21 goals in 14 games; conversely they have only been shut out twice away from home this season.
Lazio v Palermo
Both teams are operating in reverse gear at the moment. After a 7-0 pasting from Udinese Palermo coach and former Lazio Delio Rossi did not survive – Serse Cosmi (former Perugia coach) being placed in charge earlier this week.
Palermo have lost three consecutive games; conceding 12 and scoring only 2.
Lazio lost 1-0 last week away to Cagliari through an Andre Dias own goal but were unbeaten in five rounds of play previously. Lazio have slipped to 4th and are only a point ahead of Udinese.
Lazio have sufferred only two losses at home and 30 points from 14 home games is a solid performance.
Lazio only 33 goals in 27 games; Hernanes top scorer with 7 goals
Other Sunday matches in Serie A are Sampdoria v Cesena, Bologna v Cagliari, Chievo v Parma, Fiorentina v Catania, Inter Milan v Genoa, Napoli v Brescia and Udinese v Bari.
Marseille v Lille
Lille has seen its five-point lead in the French league wiped out over the last two matches with a 1-1 at home to Lyon last week their latest slip up.
Lille went out of the Europa League to PSV Eindhoven last week and only just qualified for the semi finals of the French Cup on penalties on Wednesday after a goalless draw against Lorient.
However, going into this weekend Lille lead the league on goal difference with Rennes on 46 points; Marseille 45, PSG 44, and Lyon 42. A win by Rennes on Saturday put Rennes ahead while PSG remains fourth after losing away to struggling Auxerre.
Lille striker Moussa Sow is the top scorer in the league with 17 goals while his partner Gervinho has scored 11.
Lille only lost 3 games this season but have drawn 10 – one of the losses was 3-1 at home to Marseille. This is the start of a tough run for Marseille – after Lille it is a visit to Rennes, then w Paris Saint-Germain visit.
Last season Marseille tracked down Bordeaux who held a nine point lead with 16 goals left. After the next three league games we should have a better idea if Marseille can repeat as Champions.
Seven goals with Ronaldo in the side against Malaga on Thursday; how many against Racing Santander without him in the line-up?
