It's the FA Cup final on Saturday, and Manchester City will battle it out with Stoke City at Wembley in the pursuit of glory.

City enter their first final for 30 years as heavy favourites, but Stoke have been in fine form of late. Potters boss Tony Pulis is relishing the underdog status, as ever.

In the Barclays Premier League, Manchester United can clinch a record 19th title with just a point against Blackburn tomorrow.

Darren Fletcher is in contention to start at Ewood Park after missing 15 games with a stomach virus.

United won 7-1 the last time the two sides met, with Dimitar Berbatov scoring five times at Old Trafford.

At the bottom of the table, Blackpool welcome Bolton as they look to claw themselves out of the relegation zone.




 

Elsewhere, Sunderland play Wolves, who are just a point clear of the bottom three, while Everton travel to West Brom in fantastic form.

On Sunday, Tottenham travel to Liverpool for a potential Europa League decider, with the Reds currently two points above Spurs in fifth.

Jamie Carragher has called for Liverpool to realise their European ambitions, while Harry Redknapp is desperate to end a poor run of results for Spurs.

Also on Sunday, Chelsea welcome Newcastle to Stamford Bridge having won their last six home games.

Arsenal face Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium after last week's disappointing loss at Stoke. A win will hold off Manchester City and help secure third place.
