The second blast of Premiership games this week and with the notable exception of the mighty Anmers, these games seem largely about maintaining the status quo. No one here is in trouble, no one here is running away with it there will be no dramatic consequences – it’s more about paddling to keep your head above water.

Birmingham vs Manchester City
Birmingham are on the way to Wembley. Where a savage thrashing awaits them at the hands of Arsenal. Tonight will be good preparation for that ad Manchester City are building the sort of momentum many hoped that they would not. Prediction 0-3.
Blackburn Rovers vs Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs are suddenly on their last legs. Injury ravaged and looking nothing like the big hitters that seemed to have the footballing wold at their feet but a few weeks ago. Blackburn it has to be said have done nothing but improve since the removal of Big Sam. They’ve started experimenting playing something called, ‘football’. Prediction 1-1.
Liverpool vs Stoke City
Has King Kenny turned things around? Who knows. But he won’t get too many better chances to demonstrate that they are at last heading in the right direction than this. It won’t be a walk in the park, but Stoke have gone of the boil and will have it all to do. Prediction 2-1.
Blackpool vs West Ham
West Ham are not on their way to Wembley. Given the mess they have on their plate at present it’s just as as well. Blackpool’s home form is hopeless and even a probably quite tired and fed up West Ham should be able to come up here and lift 3 points. Prediction 1-2.
Fulham vs Newcastle
Fulham spanked Spurs on Sunday. Their only memorable performance of the season so far. Newcastle will still be blurry eyed and a bit groggy from the exit of Andy Carroll. A great opportunity for the Londoners to get in quick while the Geordies are still reeling. Pardew’s converstations with Ashley must have made interesting listening. Prediction 2-2.
