Derby fever strikes predictions league

April 15, 2010

SOCCER-ENGLANDWith predictions league leader Paul Radford fast closing in on the title, attention in the Premier League turns to the Manchester derby and whether Tottenham can build on their memorable victory over city rivals Arsenal against visiting leaders Chelsea.

There is a lot at stake for the two Manchester clubs. A win for United would keep their hopes of catching Chelsea alive, while City need three points to tighten their grip on fourth and a lucrative place in next season’s Champions League.

Remember it’s five points for a correct score and one for a correct result. Put your guesses in the comments section and come back next week and let us know how you did.
