Fox Soccer Channel’s Premiership Finale
The stage is set for the final day of the Premiership season. Out of the 10 EPL matches that all kick off at 10am on Sunday, Fox Soccer Channel has announced that it’ll be televising three of the matches, all on tape delay.
Newcastle v Chelsea. Sunday, Noon ET. While the match will give Chelsea’s subs a chance to shine, including Shaun Wright-Phillips (who may be on his way to Liverpool), the match will mean much more for Newcastle as they hope to qualify for the UEFA Cup. Prediction: Newcastle 1-0 Chelsea.
Portsmouth v Liverpool, Sunday, 2pm ET. In a must-win match for Liverpool, this could be quite a game. If Liverpool win and Man United fail to beat Charlton, the Reds will end up in second place. Portsmouth meanwhile will be sure to give Harry Redknapp a hero’s welcome. Prediction: Portsmouth 1-1 Liverpool.
Arsenal v Wigan, Sunday, 4pm ET. In the biggest match of the day, Arsenal will bid a fond farewell to Highbury in the last match at the hallowed ground. Meanwhile, if Arsenal can beat Man City on Thursday, the Gunners will have to win this match and hope that Spurs lose (or tie) against West Ham to have any hope of finishing in fourth place. Prediction: Arsenal 3-2 Wigan.
Meanwhile, the Man United v Charlton match, being played Sunday at 10am ET, will be shown live on pay-per-view. Prediction: Man United 1-1 Charlton.
