Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Wed 9th to Thu 10th May 2007.
|Wed 8:00||Chelsea v Man Utd|
|Not so long ago this game was being seen as the title decider but slip ups by Chelsea have ceded the Premiership title to United and now only pride is at stake. However, they both meet in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday week and both managers are likely to rest players with this in mind. Chelsea having to perform the guard of honour at Stamford Bridge before kickoff will rub salt in the wound but the only spice likely to be seen on the pitch will be players competing for Cup final places. The Blues are the only Premiership side to remain undefeated at home this season but will definitely be missing Shevchenko, Carvalho and Ballack with Robben and Drogba also unlikely to feature. United travel to the Bridge as Champions and with the best away record of the Premiership sides; although they've had players return from injury it's unlikely many of them will be risked and other key players could also be rested. Due to the 'dead rubber' nature of this fixture and uncertainty regarding teamsheets steer well clear; a draw will offer the best return though.|
|Thu 8:00||Tottenham v Blackburn|
|There's plenty left to play for at White Hart Lane as both teams go for a place in Europe next season; Spurs need 2 points from this fixture and the game at home to Man City whilst Blackburn have to win both their remaining games and hope that Bolton, Reading and Portsmouth don't win their respective last matches, an unlikely scenario. Nevertheless, the way Rovers performed at St James Park shows they've not given up hope and they are likely to be a handful for a Spurs side that always look a little uncertain at the back. The left back position has been a problem for Martin Jol and Gardner will probably start in place of the injured Rocha after coming on against Charlton and doing OK. The key to which way this game goes could go down to strike partners and Spurs have possibly the best in Berbatov and Keane; Spurs fans will be hoping that Berba doesn't get tempted away during the summer. Rovers have lost half of their 18 away games and will need to be at their best taking on a Spurs side that have dropped just 2 points in their last 4 home games and have also been pretty good on the road. Spurs can smell Europe and will be aiming to ensure they finish no lower than last season.|
|Home Win 2-1|
