  1. Arsenal vs Liverpool If one Premier League fixture has delivered goals down the years then it's Arsenal versus Liverpool. These two sides go head-to-head in an 8:15pm BST kick-off on Wednesday night at the Emirates Stadium. The home team had been on an unbeaten run of 4 league games before their disappointing 2-1 defeat to rivals Tottenham and they'll want to get back to winning ways here against the newly crowned champions. Arsenal are an enigma in their own right with Mikel Arteta's side struggling to build any sort of consistency and mixing impressive displays in with underwhelming performances. The Gunners are down in 9th place and 5 points off the Europa League pace with just 3 league games remaining. The prospect of an FA Cup Semi-Final clash against Manchester City on the weekend could see Arteta rest players here knowing that qualification for Europe through the league is now looking unlikely even if they win here. An encouraging statistic is that Arsenal have only lost 1 of their 9 home matches in all competitions during 2020. Liverpool have fulfilled the dream of winning a first league title in 30 years. The target now is Manchester City's record-breaking points total of 100 points for a single season. Jurgen Klopp has seen his team go three league games unbeaten since their hangover 4-0 defeat away to Manchester City. In all fairness, even Pep Guardiola admitted that result was likely because the Reds players had probably been drunk all week! Still, it is just 1 win from their last 6 competitive away games so something needs to improve and it does suggest they could be vulnerable here if their opponents put in a decent performance. This fixture always has goals. The last 9 meetings between these games have seen 49 goals scored with an average of 5.44 goals scored in each encounter. Over 2.5 goals being scored has landed in 8 of those 9 matches so we know where the money is likely to be for this one. In terms of a winner, I still feel Liverpool are some way ahead of Arsenal right now and if the visitors don't add another 3 points here then they'll see it as a very disappointing result.

  2. Nottingham Forest vs Swansea The Championship play-off race continues to intensify this week when Nottingham Forest take on Swansea in a 6pm BST kick-off on Wednesday night at the City Ground. The home side are looking set to finish in the top six and can confirm their play-off with a win here against a visiting team that need a win to realistically keep their play-off hopes alive going into the final two league games. Nottingham Forest are in 5th place and 4 points inside the play-offs. Sabri Lamouchi's side had been hoping to gatecrash the automatic promotion places not too long ago but a dip in form and the improved form of those around them has extinguished those aspirations. Just 2 wins from their last 8 league games including a winless run from their last 3 league games means the sole focus is now on sealing that spot in the top six. If the Tricky Trees lose this game then it'll be the first time they've lost back-to-back home league matches since December 2018. It would also throw their play-off position into jeopardy. Swansea have just about managed to keep themselves involved in the play-off conversation when it had initially looked like their chance had gone. Steve Cooper's men are in 8th place and 4 points behind 6th placed Cardiff with a game in hand. Winning this match would put them right back into the mix. The 1-0 loss at home to Leeds brought an end to an encouraging three game unbeaten run in the league. How will the team react to that result on the weekend? Defensive issues continue to plague the Swans with it now being 5 league matches without keeping a clean sheet. However, they have shown themselves to be potent on the road having scored in each one of their last four away league games. This is a tough one to call given there's so much at stake and both teams come into this match off the back of a gut-wrenching defeat. This is where the mettle of a team hoping to reach the play-offs is truly tested. If we're being honest, Forest deserve to be in the play-off reckoning based on their season-long performance but football isn't fair and Swansea have shown they can grind out the results to stay alive when needed. I think nerves could set in for both sides so a score draw is my preferred bet. Draw @ 3.35 with Unibet BTTS @ 1.87 with SportNation

  7. Cardiff vs Derby Only 3 league games remain in the Championship season and not one single position has been decided yet. In fact, I read a statistic that confirmed every single club in the division can either get promoted or relegated still. What a league! Here, I take a look at my Cardiff side in their match against fellow play-off hopefuls Derby in a 7:45pm BST kick-off at the Cardiff City Stadium. Cardiff experienced a stroke of luck last week with results going their way after their disappointing 2-0 loss away to automatic promotion chasers Fulham. Those results meant the Bluebirds clung onto their 6th place position in the play-offs. However, a second successive defeat with 5 goals now conceded in 2 games shows that the previously resilient Cardiff back-line has now started to leak. For a team that struggles to score goals that's a very concerning issue. That being said, Cardiff have scored two goals in three of their last four home league games so if they can find that clinical touch again and the defence sharpens up then there's no reason they can't get back to winning ways. Derby had been one of the in-form sides in the division when they restarted with 3 straight league wins. Unfortunately, Phillip Cocu's men have lost their rhythm and have now failed to win any of their last 3 league matches. This statistic shouldn't be looked into too deeply though because their opponents have been Nottingham Forest, West Brom, and Brentford. The worrying aspect about this game for Rams fans is that Derby have been poor on the road against teams inside the top six. They've conceded an average of 2 goals per game in their last 5 away matches against teams in the top six and across the whole of the season have conceded 40 goals on the road. Only Luton have conceded more goals (45) on their travels and only Charlton, Luton, Barnsley, and Stoke have earned fewer points on their travels this season. Ooh, this is a tough one. I really want to back us to beat Derby in this game but I have some big concerns over how we've been playing lately. Actually, I say that but it's been more individual errors at key times. I don't know whether it's because the pressure is getting to certain players or if it's simply a lack of concentration. Whatever it is, it seems that Derby are suffering from the same. My head says a draw but I have to go with my heart here and back Cardiff to win. Cardiff to Win @ 2.38 with Gentingbet BTTS @ 1.83 with Bet365
  8. Well, this makes a bit of a mockery of the whole process. When will we ever reach a time when these teams with money that repeatedly and flagrantly break the rules are actually punished for their actions? How will this ruling impact the final few games of the Premier League season too? The likes of Sheffield United, Tottenham, Arsenal, and Burnley are all now deeply impacted by this. Especially if Manchester United win tonight. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53387306
