Football News

This weekend’s FA Cup final dominates the weekend preview, with Manchester City red-hot favourites to beat Wigan Athletic at Wembley.

Yaya Toure should be fit to feature for the Citizens, who are looking to lift thei trophy for a second time in three years.

The Latics, meanwhile, have injury problems aplenty, with Jean Beausejour the latest in a line of players expected to miss out on the showpiece event.

Kick-off at the home of football is 5:15pm.

Back in the Premier League, and Chelsea’s trip to Aston Villa is the only other game on Saturday ahead of the Blues’ Europa League final next week.

Frank Lampard is tipped to start at Villa Park as he chases the all-time Goalscoring record, whilst Paul Lambert’s side need another win to secure their Premier League safety.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s final match in charge of Manchester United will dominate the headlines on Sunday, although the clash against Swansea has little riding on it at Old Trafford.

Tottenham Hotspur’s trip to Stoke City is much more important in the battle for the top four, and victory for Andre Villas-Boas’ side would move them ahead of Arsenal, who don’t play until Tuesday night.

Everton host West Ham looking to cement a place in the Europa League, whilst Fulham entertain Liverpool in another match of minimal significance.

Three matches have huge relegation significance, with Sunderland against Southampton perhaps the biggest of the lot. Victory for Paolo Di Canio’s side would move them ahead of the Saints, who are sliding in the wrong direction.

Newcastle travel to already relegated QPR looking to move three points clear of the drop zone, whilst Norwich face the same scenario when West Brom arrive at Carrow Road.
