Rob's Prediction: Everton V Wigan

Rob's Prediction: Everton V Wigan

Wigan have lost six of seven games in which they have played Everton so it is time for that statistic to change and I'm not so sure it will at Goodison Park today, I'm sorry to say, though I hope it does. Also, I must say that I think that survival may now ultimately elude Roberto Martinez and the Latics which is a great shame since the club is so honest in its principles and has done so well the time it has been in the top flight.

Nevertheless, Wigan travel to Everton in the hope of recording a win and whilst I don't think its beyond them, the history books are against Wigan and I think today, David Moyes will get a timely filip in his quest to climb the table and it will be another sorry saturday for the Wigan faithful.

Everton have injury worries in the shape of Louis Saha who has been confirmed to be a major injury worry which means Ayiegbeni Yakubu might take his place - not good news for Wigan fans as Yakubu has a decent return against Wigan but his prowess in front of goal has a lot to be desired and then there is hotshot Jermaine Beckford who will have to be watched closely if he is to play today.

There is good news on the Wigan front - Hugo Rodallega returns and he has been described as being hungry to make it up to the Wigan fans and I think he might cause Everton something to think about today - I wouldn't be surprised to see hot-shot Rodallega stun the home side but I just can't see it.

History says a tight game and I think too Everton will just win this today.

ROB'S PREDICTION
================

Are the Latics going to get a win anytime soon? Despite a good performance against Stoke, only wins are going to keep you in this league and with the current formation of the table, the omens are not good and a loss at Goodison Park will set the alarm bells ringing at Wigan and I see a narrow win for David Moyes' Everton today.
Everton FC 2-1 Wigan Athietic

ROB'S OTHER PREDICTIONS
=======================

Aston Villa V West Brom - Its time for West Brom to change their fortunes against Villa - 0 wins against the Midlands outfit tells its own story. I see a narrow home win. 2-1

Fulham V Sunderland - Fulham are on shaky ground and this is a must win game for them. Sunderland are so-so on their travels. Draw. 1-1

Stoke City V Blackpool - This is going to be a bruising encounter. Stoke could make Europe, make no qualms about it. Blackpool are in a good position too. Draw. 1-1

West Ham V Man City - The hammers need to keep the momentum going and City can take a hit here and there. Its a tough one this one but again, its a draw which would be a decent enough point for the hammers. 1-1

Newcastle V Liverpool - New manager syndrome, Liverpool average on the road. I see a narrow away win despite the appointment of Alan Pardew as manager. 0-1

Bolton V Blackburn - I think Blackburn will win this game as they have an excellent record at the Reebok Stadium and Sam Allardyce is returning to his former club. A tasy encounter beckons. 1-2

Wolves V Birmingham - Wolves need to win to have any chance of staying in England's top flight tier. Birmingham prove tough opposition though. I think that perhaps Wolves might nick it, though in honesty, this is the type of game in where ANYTHING can happen. 1-0

Tottenham V Chelsea - Oh dear, they don't come much tastier than this. Tottenham have a poor record against Chelsea. I think Ancelotti's men will battle to a significant victory despite their recent problems. 0-1

Man Utd V Arsenal - I think Arsenal have more to prove than Man Utd do. It'll be a feisty encounter but I suspect an away win on this Monday night. 0-1

ROB'S FINAL THOUGHT
===================

Wins for Wigan and Huddersfield should make the perfect weekend. C'mon Latics!
