22 April 2009 : Portsmouth (Home) - BPL
Portsmouth. From all EPL clubs, we will meet the club who’s had knock out us from FA Cup last season. They done it in our home soil and then became champions of FA Cup 2008/09. Now we meet them again in different scenario; i.e. playing for Premier League match with 7 games left for this season.
Yes, we were disappointed for not going to Wembley again for this year FA Cup Final against Chelsea, but we can still move on and get our QUADRUPLE! Impossible? Not really, as we have the capability to do it.
Coming back to Portsmouth, we never lost against them in Premier League era. We got 15 points out of 15! Good statistics. But never be complacent. More over, the last time we lost against them is in season 2004/05 at Fratton Park. That game ended we defeated 2-0. If you can remember the second goal was in the 90th minute with Rio Ferdinand back passed to Van der Sar and our goalie misjudge it! (Please correct me if I’m wrong)
We need to win this game, in order to put more pressure to our rival, Liverpool. They drew 4-4 against Arsenal yesterday and it really a big boost for us! Never write-off Chelsea, they kept going inaudibly behind us. One major slip, instead Red, maybe Blue ribbon will be tied at EPL trophy this season!
Hopefully Fergie will field his strongest team. I personally am hoping a big win, just to get our superior goal difference. But there main thing is to get those valuable 3 points. Glory Glory Man Utd!
Line-up: Van der Sar, Rafael, Vidic, Rio, Evra, Ronaldo, Carrick, Fletcher, Giggs, Rooney, Tevez
Prediction: 4-0 to United
