Below were the predicted outcomes for the midweek fixtures Tues 25th to Wed 26th January 2011.
|Tues 7:30||Blackpool v Man Utd|
|This is United's game in hand and gives them the chance to stretch their lead over closest challengers, Arsenal, to five points. They remain unbeaten in the Premier League although their record on the road has been somewhat soured by drawing eight of their ten away fixtures. Despite still struggling to find the back of the net, Rooney's performances have improved although he's lagging behind the unpredictable Berbatov who scored his third hat-trick of the season last weekend. Ahead of the trip to Bloomfield Road, Ferdinand faces assessment of his groin injury whilst Carrick is unlikely to recover from an ankle niggle. Blackpool find themselves in mid-table after failing to build on the win over Liverpool and subsequently losing at the Hawthorns and at home to Sunderland. To add to Holloway's problems, Charlie Adam's head appears to have been turned by Liverpool's offer though the Tangerines are likely to hold out for more than the initial £4m. Blackpool are more than capable of springing a surprise but taking United's form into account, you're left with choosing between a draw or a United win. If the front two of United are fully focused, this should be a victory for the away side.|
|Away Win 1-2|
|Tues 7:45||Wigan v Aston Villa|
|This game is still a relegation battle despite Villa beating City at the weekend. The signing of Darren Bent appears to have paid off given that he got the winner on his debut but in all truth he did little else and will always have his critics. Villa find themselves two places and three points above the drop zone but their away record is poor having won just a single away fixture all season and taken just two points from their last five games on the road. Wigan are worse off than their visitors and need a win to lift themselves out of the relegation places. In fact, a big win could actually lift them above their opponents but the Latics aren't prolific scorers having scored the least in the Premier League and only Birmingham have scored fewer on home soil. Gary Caldwell misses this game after being dismissed at the Emirates for a professional foul and adds to Wigan's defensive problems. Games like this at the foot of the table can swing either way but given the propensity of both sides to draw matches, another one looks on the cards.|
|Wed 8:00||Liverpool v Fulham|
|Kenny Dalglish finally got a win under his belt in a hard-fought game at Molineux and Torres showed that he'll get the goals if he gets the service. Meireles not only provided that by bursting from the midfield but his dipping volley left Hennessey with no chance. It was just revenge for Liverpool after Wolves beat them at Anfield immediately before the turn of the year. Dalglish will also be relieved to have Gerrard available after suspension and may have to shuffle the midfield accordingly. They host a Fulham side that last lost on New Years Day at White Hart Lane but their away form isn't good having won just a single Premier League game on the road this season. The Cottagers seem to struggle away from home and with a rejuvenated Anfield behind the Liverpool side, Torres scoring again and Gerrard back in the team, it looks like everything's stacked against Fulham.|
|Home Win 2-0|
