Wigan’s failure to break down a weakened Portsmouth outfit doesn’t bode well for the visit of Arsenal, who should collect three points at the DW Stadium despite their title hopes being all but over following their derby defeat at Spurs in midweek.

Aston Villa’s draw against Everton in midweek all but ended their slim hopes of capturing fourth place but at the same time, their late leveller means the Toffees are unlikely to overhaul them in the battle for a Europa League place.
Martin O’Neill’s men head to Fratton Park this afternoon and they will kick off as 4/6 favourites with Betfred to overcome rock-bottom Portsmouth, Jaxx.com’s 9/2 outsiders, who may well have half an eye on next month’s FA Cup Final.
Nevertheless, Avram Grant’s men have been showing a certain amount of resilience of late, a weakened line-up nicking a point at Wigan on Wednesday, and they can restrict Villa in this one. Subsequently, Ladbrokes’ 10/3 for the visitors to nick it by a one-goal margin and Stan James’ 6/1 posted against them grabbing the only goal of the game, both catch the eye.
Pompey have struggled for goals of late and so a clean sheet for Villa, at 11/10 (bet365) looks on the cards. Alternatively, punters can combine an away win with that shutout at odds of 13/8 with Totesport.
Betdaq’s 17/20 for the clash to produce fewer than 2.5 goals therefore catches the eye while in attack for O’Neill’s charges; Gabriel Agbonlahor looks the pick of the strikers at 4/1 with 888Sport to break the deadlock.

Tomorrow, Liverpool are a home banker against relegation-threatened West Ham despite the latter’s draw at Everton on their last trip to Merseyside a couple of weeks ago. The Reds are 2/5 courtesy of Betfred to come out on top and 19/20 (bet365) to do so by two clear goals.
