Interesting games on tonight. Liverpool have got Chelsea at home, which could have a bearing on where we end up. We need Liverpool to lose, basically - they’ve got it in them, but they also perform nicely against bigger sides.
A potentially more interesting game takes place between Sunderland and the other scouse Premier League team. If Sunderland beat Everton tonight, they relegate both Norwich and Newcastle before the final day.
I’ve got mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, I think it would be quite cool for Sam Allardyce to retain his record, particularly when it dooms a club that used to employ him. On the other, there won’t be much final day drama if he does.
I also fear for anyone in a 50 mile radius of Sam if he wins.
- Laters Newcastle and Norwich
- Goes to final day.
