Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Wed 21st February 2007.
|Wed 7:45||Watford v Wigan|
|Watford may be propping up the rest of the Premiership but they are making a brave stab at keeping the relegation competitive and only 7 points separate them from Wigan and safety. The likelihood is that the Hornets will not avoid the drop but 2 wins in their last 4 Premiership games will have given Boothroyd's side a little more self-belief. This game was orignally played on 30th December but was abandoned at 1-1 and has only now been rescheduled. Wigan are also flirting dangerously with the possibility of dropping down to the next division, but after a miserable run of defeats they did pick up a vital home win against Portsmouth. They then followed this up with a valiant performance at the Emirates but were robbed of at least a point. On the road the Latics have lost 8 of their 13 Premiership games, and whilst Watford have only won 3 league games all season, they remain hard to beat at Vicarage Road. A scoreline similar to when this got abandoned looks likely.|
|Wed 8:00||Everton v Tottenham|
|Only 3 places separate these two but the gap is a big 6 points; Spurs will obviously be desperate to take victory at Goodison and close the deficit but their Premiership form away from White Hart Lane has been woeful with just 1 victory in 13 games. If only they could reproduce their away performances in cup competitions in the league, they would be sitting far higher up the table. After the 4 goal thrashiing of Fulham, Jol is likely to start with Keane and Berbatov but their defence still looks vulnerable without King. The Toffees have lost just 2 league games at Goodison this season and have the predatory Andy Johnson back to full fitness. They will be without the services of the suspended Cahill, but they will know their best way of beating Spurs is to put themselves about and press the game. When put under pressure Tottenham always look liable to make a mistake and this could prove the key to a valuable 3 points for Everton.|
|Home Win 2-1|
