Hey look United beat Stoke



Di Canio's Sunderland make statement

The Black Cats travelled to Newcastle with relegation very much on the cards, but dishing out a 3-0 hammering -- albeit a controversial one -- will relieve much of the pressure on the club.


Sunderland need win in Tyne-Wear derby

Tensions will be high in the Tyne-Wear derby, with Sunderland in real relegation trouble and Newcastle not faring too much better.


United look to bounce back from City defeat

With Stoke in relegation trouble and Manchester United recently rattled by cross-town rivals City, this game is important for both sides.

Everton see off QPR

Cottagers scrape draw at Villa Park

Villa are still in the relegation scrap after letting a 1-0 lead slip against Fulham thanks to a Fabian Delph own goal.

Norwich City were on their way to a massive victory over Arsenal before the Gunners were awarded a controversial penalty and scored a late winner to pull off the comeback.


Arsenal vs. Norwich City: Lineups

Jack Wilshere returns for Arsenal as they take on Norwich City at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners' key midfielder has been absent for six weeks through injury, and although his side have hardly struggled without him, his return is a welcome boost. Arsenal are in need of a victory to ensure they use their game in hand to move into the top four and put pressure on rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea as the battle for Champions League qualification heats up.

Kieran Gibbs and Gervinho also start for the gunners in place of Ignacio Monreal and Theo Walcott. Norwich, meanwhile, hand a start to Kei Kamara, with Grant Holt the lone striker.

Arsenal starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Lukasz Fabianski; Bacary Sagna, Laurent Koscielny, Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs; Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere; Aaron Ramsey, Gervinho, Santiago Cazorla; Olivier Giroud

Norwich City starting line-up(4-5-1): Mark Bunn; Russell Martin, Sebastian Bassong, Michael Turner, Steven Whittaker; Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson, Alexander Tettey, Robert Snodgrass, Kei Kamara; Grant Holt


Reading vs. Liverpool: Lineups

Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge both start for Liverpool as they take on Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

Anything but victory for the Royals would surely end their survival hopes, if they have not been already, but Pavel Pogrebnyak is handed a start as they look to achieve what would be a rare victory after some poor recent form.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are similarly running out of time for their Champions League hopes, and are also in need of a victory. Coutinho and Luis Suarez should lend them creativity and firepower up front, while Lucas, who recently signed a new long-term deal, also starts.

Reading starting line-up (4-5-1): Alex McCarthy; Chris Gunter, Sean Morrison, Adrian Mariappa, Stephen Kelly; Jem Karacan, Danny Guthrie; Jobi McAnuff, Noel Hunt, Gareth McCleary; Pavel Pogrebnyak

Liverpool starting line-up (4-3-3): Pepe Reina; Jose Enrique, Glen Johnson, Jamie Carragher, Daniel Agger; Lucas, Jordan Henderson, Steven Gerrard; Daniel Sturridge, Luis Suarez, Coutinho.


Arsenal hope to move into a Champions League spot

A win against an off-colour Norwich would lift Arsenal above rivals Tottenham and into a Champions League spot.


Everton expected to beat QPR

Everton should be able to continue their push for Europe with a victory against a QPR side which is already all but relegated.
