Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Wed 19th March 2008.
|Wed 8:00||Man Utd v Bolton|
|Megson's plan to rest his key players against Sporting Lisbon looked to have backfired given that his side succumbed to a narrow defeat against a Wigan side reduced to 10 men for 86 minutes, a result that leaves them third from bottom and 2 points adrift of short-term safety. Bolton have won on just one occasion away from the Reebok and the ever astute Megson has realised that his charges need to roll their sleeves up if they are to escape relegation. Had Bolton still had Anelka at their disposal they may have stood a chance but the goals are in short supply and to add insult to injury, Jaaskelainen has now been ruled out for the remainder of the season. They travel to Old Trafford to play a United side looking for the win that will take them 3 points clear at the top of the table. United found at Pride Park that the bottom sides don't always roll over and can be certain that Bolton will make life difficult but Ferguson's men have dropped just 5 points at home and should be expected to make the position as league leaders their own despite having relinquished it several times already this season.|
|Home Win 2-0|
|Tottenham v Chelsea|
|Since the Carling Cup victory over Chelsea, Spurs have not lived up to the standards they set in that game. Excepting the 4-0 victory over West Ham their results have been disappointing including the UEFA Cup exit in Eindhoven. After going ahead at Eastlands on Sunday they looked nervous and never looked like building on their lead, ultimately paying the price under concerted City pressure. Spurs are comfortable in mid-table with little realistic chance of improving on their position but they've only dropped 2 points in their last 6 Premier league home fixtures. Chelsea visit the Lane looking for revenge and a maximum as they aim to go level on points with Arsenal in second place. Grant has suffered much criticism after their exit from the FA Cup and Carling Cup defeat and knows that silverware, the Premier or Champions League titles, may be the only factor to keep him in a job. The Blues have dropped just 2 points in their last 6 away days and they know they must win if they are to maintain the pressure on the front runners.|
|Away Win 1-2|
