In the race for the title, and Europe, tonight’s football see’s Manchester City travel to Birmingham, Spurs head to Blackpool, and Liverpool host Stoke at Anfield.

Manchester City will look to keep their title chances alive tonight when they visit St Andrews to take on Birmingham.
Mancini’s men currently lie in third place, and will be looking over their shoulders at the developments of Chelsea as of late, who sit just one point behind them.

Alex Mcleish’s Birmingham are in desperate need of points, as they are hovering just one place above the relegation zone.
However, Birmingham do have three games in hand on Wigan, who are level on points with the Blues.

Harry Redknapp’s Tottenham face a tricky trip to Blackburn tonight. Tottenham were unsuccessful in making any big name signings in January, and Redknapp will be hoping an away victory can spark some life back into his squad.

Big spending Liverpool welcome Stoke City to Anfield tonight, with Luis Suarez free to make his debut should Dalglish wish to include him.

Liverpool’s other big name signing Andy Carroll, is not available as he is still recovering from an injury, as Liverpool look to win their third Premiership game in a row.

In what could be the game of the night, Blackpool host West Ham in a relegation six pointer.
Ian Holloway fought hard to keep his Captain Charlie Adam at the Seasiders, and he will look to his Captain to inspire his team to victory tonight.

Avram Grant’s West Ham will also be in defiant mood, having progressed to the next round of the FA Cup, and captured the loan signing of Irish Captain Robbie Keane until the end of the season.

Both teams will fancy their chances, and we may see an open game with attacking football, as both teams look for an important victory.

Wolves travel to the Reebok Stadium to take on Bolton tonight, with Mick McCarthy’s men level on points with bottom club West Ham.

Bolton are in a more comfortable position lying seven points clear of the drop zone, but Owen Coyle will look for victory as he aims to ensure top flight survival for his team.
On Loan Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge, may make his debut for Bolton.

Newcastle begin life after Andy Carroll when they travel to a somewhat rejuvenated Fulham.

On loan signing Stephen Ireland is a doubt for Newcastle as he is reportedly struggling with fitness, as Alan Pardrew looks to put the Andy Carroll circus story to bed.

On the back of their 4-0 drubbing of Spurs in the FA Cup, Fulham will be full of confidence when they welcome Newcastle to Craven Cottage.

The London club have only lost one of their past six matches, and are beginning to turn a corner under Mark Hughes.

    It is a massive game for Man City tonight, much like it was for Arsenal last night. If they slip up then they can just about kiss away any chance they have of winning the league. Man U just wont throw many games away this season so the chasing pack need to bring their A game in every match.
