Midweek Premiership action on 2BET2

Updated: March 20, 2012

The Premiership dishes out a host of action tonight and tomorrow as the title race hots up.

Tonight sees Blackburn 15/11 welcome Sunderland 19/10. Sunderland have been in terrific form since the arrival of Martin O Neil, and have just come off a win against Liverpool. A win could see them climb above Swansea to eighth and put them in a position to mount a charge for European football. Blackburn have taken control of the second half of their season slowly climbing out of the relegation zone. Another win will put them 8 points clear of the bottom 3.

On Wednesday, Manchester City will have the chance to revive their faltering bid for the Premier League title when they welcome Chelsea to Eastlands. City will be looking to eradicate the thoughts that still linger from their loss to Swansea. Mancini could welcome back wayward striker Carlos Tevez, while Chelsea arrive with the threat of £50 million striker Fernando Torres who apprears to finally be over his barren spell in front of goal.

The battle for third and fourth, and the Champions League places they bring, is almost as intriguing as the title race.

Arsenal, whose position at one stage this season left many observers pondering on whether manager Arsene Wenger had been too long at the Gunners are now just a point behid third-placed Tottenham and three clear of Chelsea.They have won their last four games in all competitions and will travel to Everton on Wednesday in confident mood.

Tottenham, who were the team of the season early on, have had a slump of late with three straight league defeats preceding last weekend’s Cup tie, abandoned out of respect to Muamba’s condition.

Spurs players have all since had heart checks but it is their nerve that will be tested mainly when, in their first match since Muamba took ill, they face Stoke at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

Meanwhile League Cup winners Liverpool, fresh from booking a second appearance at Wembley this season with an FA Cup quarterfinal win over Stoke, travel to relegation-threatened QPR.
