If you are a betting person, here are tips ahead of the midweek action brought to you by Soccer 6 and guest predictor, AmaZulu defender, Marc van Heerden. For more info on these and other fixtures, go to the Soccer 6 website here or the Soccer 6 mobi-site here!
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR V LIVERPOOL
League position: Spurs 7th and Liverpool 11th
Useful facts: Spurs reversed a recent poor run of form after winning at home to West Ham United in their last match played. Liverpool could be close to becoming the English Premiership’s very own version of SuperSport United – the Reds have drawn seven of their 13 league matches played.
Marc van Heerden: Spurs win at home.
EVERTON V ARSENAL
League position: Everton 5th and Arsenal 6th
Useful facts: Everton’s bright start to the season has started to fade, the Toffees have dropped nine points from their last five matches. Arsenal have also been a bit hit-and-miss, Arsene Wenger’s men have drawn three of their last five matches played.
Marc van Heerden: Tough one, I’ll go with a draw.
WIGAN ATHLETIC V MANCHESTER CITY
League position: Wigan 15th and City 2nd
Useful facts: Wigan are traditionally quite strong at the JJB Stadium, the Latics will need all the support they can get as they prepare for the visit of the league champions. City are very solid on their travels and will feel favourites going into this tie.
Marc van Heerden: Manchester City win for sure.
CHELSEA V FULHAM
League position: Chelsea 4th and Fulham 10th
Useful facts: Life under Rafa Benitez got off to an unspectacular start, the Spaniard guiding Chelsea to a 0-0 draw in his opening game in charge. The Blues will be hoping for a much better response as they prepare for the visit of a Dimitar Berbatov-inspired Fulham.
Marc van Heerden: Chelsea win. The players will want to prove their fans wrong about Rafa Benitez.
