Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Tues 15th and Wed 16th March 2005.
|Tues 7:45||Chelsea v West Brom|
|50 points separate top and bottom and if to emphasise this more, Chelsea have yet to lose at home whilst West Brom are yet to win away. Chelsea should have Drogba back to bolster their attacking options but after scoring 4 against Barcelona, though against a fragile defence, they should be creative enough to win this without the injured Robben. Defensively Chelsea are virtually impregnable and they will have welcomed a weekend break amongst their busy schedule. West Brom are obviously desperate for points but it takes a brave punter to back them away at Chelsea.|
|Home Win 2-0|
|Wed 8:00||Charlton v Tottenham|
|Charlton's home form is not bad having won 7 from 13 but they remain a little inconsistent and it has taken some time for their summer signings to make an impact, one of them is still yet to. Spurs have just been dumped out of the Cup at Newcastle, possibly with the aid of the referee, but again they have failed to score away again. For all their attacking options only scoring 8 goals away from home is not enough to mount a serious challenge for a European place. Spurs have lost their last three away from home and it looks like they could lose again at the Valley.|
|Home Win 2-1|
|Tues 7:45||Liverpool v Blackburn|
|Liverpool may be having not so good a season in the Premiership but they manged to reach the Carling Cup final and are still in the UEFA Cup. It is only their away form in the Premiership that has hurt them this season as their home form is pretty good having won 9 from 13. They have several injury problems but fortunately not to key players so the likes of Gerrard, Hamann, Baros and Morientes should be available to take three points from Blackburn. The only possible return from injury could be Kewell but his form hasn't exactly been the best. Blackburn are gradually climbing away from the relegation places, though it is too soon to talk about safety, but their place in the Cup semi-final will have given them a boost. Hughes has turned things around at Blackburn and they will scrap to the finall whistle but Liverpool at home should prove too much for them.|
|Home Win 2-0|
