Fantasy Focus
Analysis of big showdowns this gameweek.

Manchester United vs Liverpool
Prediction: 2-3

The hottest derby in the world is going to run again this weekend with the title contenders Manchester United the host this time.

Manchester United's form has always been on a red hot run throughout the season, which contrasts Rafa's army's shaky form a lot.

At so, why still predict the Merseysider Reds to shine?

Well, just as my last prediction of Manchester United-Liverpool encounter, spirit takes a big factor in such derbies. Liverpool is now starring as the biggest sentinel of all time, not only protecting their status as the usual top four of the year, but also as the most top flight league title holders of 18 times. These ambitions, when compared to Manchester United ones, can really ignite drive Liverpool much stronger than their biggest derby rivals.

The best thing about this game is the Rooney-Torres encounter which can really decide the whole outcome of the game. Rooney is a so complete striker who virtually play in any position upfront. However, he'll have problem getting past Javier Mascherano-the defensive beast, and jumping higher than Sotirios Kyrgiakos to perform his most accurate heading ever, unless Berbatov is performing at his best to draw the attention of Liverpool's defence.

Meanwhile, Torres is proven to be much superior against Vidic-Ferdinand duo, and unless they both performed at their very best, I don't think they can stop him. The Spanish star had already scored four in his last two games, which will give a big sign of fear to Sir Alex Ferguson. Not to be forgotten there's also Gerrard on his back - the deadly duo which had given the Red Devils much trauma during their last several encounters.

With nothing to lose, Liverpool will be much more determined and hence, as a Liverpool and Torres supporter I stand on their side this time. Let's enjoy this game and hope both Rooney and Torres will give us a lot of goals in our fantasy teams.

Hope that he won't become the culprit again...

Manchester City vs Everton
Prediction: 2-2

Champions League chaser Manchester City will host Everton on the replacement fixture taking place next midweek.

The Eastlanders are in a fluctuating form, with only two games won on their last five, while the Merseysiders are on a fine run of form after bouncing back from their early season misery.

I believe both sides will be even-stevens, with plenty of goals coming. Arteta is a must pick for me, while the likes like Carlos Tevez, Adam Johnson and Steven Pienaar are good addition to your squads as well.

So can Manchester City continue to push up to realise their top four aspirations? It's still a big riddle now but we all know that the outcome of this game may really much change their destiny...

Another couple of good displays and he should be on the way to South Africa.

The latest football news to enrich your day.

Champions League: Mourinho's Revenge

Jose Mourinho has made a sweet revenge on Roman Abramovich as his side had won Chelsea 1-0 on Stamford Bridge to make it 3-1 in aggregate.

Samuel Eto'o scored the only goal of the match to make sure Inter proceeds to the last eight round of Champions League.

The outcome might be cause Chelsea to collapse, so beware when buying their players.

On the same round we also saw Barcelona easily scored four to take a step further than VfB Stuttgart.

"I should've still been the manager of Chelsea!"

Europa Cup: English Clubs Are Tough

Liverpool and Fulham prove that they are not an easy pie as they punished Lille and Juventus respectively to qualify for the round of last eight of Europa Cup.

Two goals from El Nino and another from Gerrard had saw the Reds recovered from their one goal deficit last week - and also gave Manchester United a big warning. Meanwhile, Fulham's reversal was much more dramatic with Trezeguet scored first to record a 4-1 aggregate for the Italian giants before the Cottagers eventually returned them four goals to win the round of 16.

You simply can't underestimate clubs from the most popular football league in the world...

Our missing on form Torres is back!
