Patrick Barclay (The Times)
Birmingham vs Chelsea: London Blues to stop the rot – just.
Des Kelly (Daily Mail)
Blackburn v Villa: This is possibly the most unpredictable game of the day. Blackburn have no discernible form at home, having won two, lost two and drawn two so far this season. Villa are weak away, which is strange for a counter attacking team. They will both be happy with a point.
Shaun Custis (The Sun)
Blackpool v Wolves: Wolves have been playing a lot better than their League position suggests and its time they were rewarded with an away win by the seaside.

Andy Dunn (News of the World)
Bolton v Newcastle: Owen Coyle’s team have been operating under the radar this season but have to be one of the most improved teams in the Barclays Premer League. Too strong at home for an inconsistent Newcastle
Martin Lipton (The Mirror)
Man United v Wigan: Even in the season of shocks there can’t be one at Old Trafford, surely? United to win it, by three.
Steve Bates (The People)
West Brom v Stoke: Stoke have only won once away in the Barclay’s Premier League this season and I don’t see that record changing for the better at The Hawthorns against Roberto Di Matteo’s stars.
Danny Fulbrook (Daily Star)
Liverpool v West Ham: this is such an important game for both sides on recent results but likely to be a draw
Glenn Moore (The Independent)
Fulham v Man City: Mark Hughes will relish the opportunity to put one over his old club but with both teams struggling to score a goalless draw is on the offing.
