Thereâ€™s an important Premier League game tonight at Manchester United.
But itâ€™s not that Manchester United can go 3 points clear of Arsenal if they beat Bolton tonight that matters to Newcastle fans. This is Boltonâ€™s game in hand over Newcastle United and if they lose tonight, Newcastle will be 4 points clear of Bolton.
Bolton are 3rd bottom so weâ€™ll also be 4 points above the drop zone. But as usual Bolton have a better goal difference (-15) than Newcastle (-26), but maybe the Red Devils can put a few past the Bolton defense tonight.
On current or past form, you wouldnâ€™t expect anything but a Manchester United win, but strange things happen at this stage of the season, when teams are fighting for their survival in the Premier League.
Don’t forget that Bolton beat Manchester United at the Reebok Stadium on 24th November 1-0, with a goal from Nicholas Anelka, who’s now at Chelsea.
But with most pundits, the three favorites to be relegated are Derby, Fulham and Bolton. Newcastle can make that more of a probability on Saturday, by beating Fulham and going 9 points clear of the London side.
Weâ€™ll have a relegation watch report tonight following the game.
