In my notes today I have looked at four matches, putting two black (suggestion) and two red (official selection) type selections. I have put one of the lesser picks below and will also post something a little later in the day, so please check back.

Drop zone clash between West Bromwich Albion and Fulham. Bit of a surprise that Roy Hodgson's men are struggling, as they have looked pretty good at times,notably against Chelsea and Manchester United, but last weeks 3-0 defeat at Swansea City was a low point of the campaign and with an always difficult trip to Sunderland up next, followed by two Midlands deby games, this is about as easy as it is going to get for quite some time and defeat will see the pressure heaped on Roy and his troops. He will know most of the visitors well from his time in charge at Craven Cottage and made clear his priority by resting nine players for the Carling Cup game at Everton on Wednesday. Fulham also made wholesale changes for their cup derby game with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but have had a much tougher sequence of games, with this, their fouth start in ten days, all three previous outings ending in draws and Martin Jol's team were chasing the ball for much of the time in each, they fly out to Denmark on Tuesday and face another West London derby next weekend ( their first league game with QPR in years), they are in the middle of a truly horrendous schedule of games. This is a series where the home home side normally prevails, with no away win either here or in London between the two clubs in eleven meetings and I expect that to continue. WBA -0.25 ball 2.01 + asian line.

Good Luck.
