EPL on TV this weekend

A number of compelling games on FSC this weekend. Liverpool take on Wigan in a match of two teams with similar styles but contrasting form. Liverpool are on the up, cracking the top 4 at the expense of Wigan who have lost their last 2 games to London teams. Both teams play rough defense and look to get out on the break. I wouldn't expect too many goals but I do expect a typically English encounter. No matter how many Spaniards are on the pitch.

ManU continue to ride the emotional wave after the death of George Best (R.I.P.) and now take on a lousy Portsmouth side in disarray and lacking a manager. How will the GNev era at ManU begin? Hard to see past a home win, and a convincing one at that. The only thing that could get in the way would be the team selection. Does SAF rest players in anticipation of a MUST-WIN game at Benfica in mid-week? And with the likes of Saha and Neville coming back from injury, the squad is looking deeper. But in the end I expect ManU to come out full-bore and give Portsmouth a real hiding.

Chelsea face an inconsistent Boro while Newcastle and Villa face off in what has to be described as an old-fashioned WWE "loser leaves town" match for the respective managers.
