Premier League

The Premier League’s teatime game comes at the Emirates, as Arsenal and Manchester United look to get a morale-boosting win, after some mediocre performances thus far. Leicester could climb out of the bottom 3 with a win over Sunderland, who seem to have recovered from last month’s 8-0 thrashing.


The Championship


In the Championship, Leeds’ defensive frailties may be exposed further by Blackburn, who have not failed to score since September. Elsewhere, it’s the battle of the struggling managers at Carrow Road. Neil Adams looks to end Norwich’s poor run of 1 win in 7, while Sami Hyypia will hope to take Brighton further away from the relegation zone, and build on their recent win over Wigan.


League One


In League One this weekend, Bradford face Gillingham, as both sides picked up a potentially pivotal late win the week before. Fleetwood look to continue their good home form against Walsall, who will be without top scorer Tom Bradshaw. Meanwhile, MK Dons will aim to complete rare back-to-back wins against Port Vale, who are making huge strides under their new manager, Robert Page.


League Two


The big game in League Two comes at Whaddon Road, as Cheltenham look to respond to last week’s 5-1 defeat when they play injury-stricken Wycombe. Long ball Mansfield face smooth passing Plymouth, while Morecambe make the long trip south to play Portsmouth, who have flattered to deceive this season.
