Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Wed 20th January 2010.
|Wed 7:45||Arsenal v Bolton|
|This is the game that should've taken place a couple of weeks ago but was postponed for weather and now ironically takes place immediately after Arsenal's twinkle toes football won the day at the Reebok. Bolton manager, Owen Coyle, is still learning about his own players and was delighted with their efforts against the Gunners but it's likely to be a different story at the Emirates where the Trotters won't have the same euphoric support as Coyle had for his first game in charge. Bolton remain second from bottom and have just two points to show from their last five away matches. Their hosts, Arsenal, know that a victory by at least a couple of goals could seem them take top spot though Chelsea will still have a game in hand. The Gunners have dropped just five points at the Emirates all season and with Fabregas back as the architect, and Clichy close to starting, they pose a very real threat in the title race.|
|Home Win 3-0|
|Liverpool v Tottenham|
|Another late goal sent Liverpool's hopes of three points crashing into oblivion at the Britannia and to rub salt into the wound, Kuyt could only hit the post with a header late into injury time. Can someone please tell us how Benitez is still in a job? To his relief, the other sides chasing fourth place all failed to win at the weekend meaning that no ground was lost on Liverpool's closest rivals. The Reds have won just six of the last 22 games in all competitions though their Premier league record at Anfield tells a slightly different story with a single defeat from their last six. Liverpool face Spurs, one of their protagonists in the battle for fourth, knowing that this is a must win game if they're to keep alive their Champions League hopes for next season. Spurs have now gone over ten hours of football without conceding but Hull proved at the weekend that they can be easily frustrated. If selected, you can bet your bottom dollar that both Crouch and Keane will be itching to put one over on Benitez but can Spurs find the spark without the runs from the injured Lennon. Liverpool's continuing injury problems have been widely publicised but unlike Hull, they're bound to attack more giving Spurs space to create themselves. There's a lot at stake and Spurs are capable of winning but a draw looks the most likely outcome.|
