Manchester City vs West Brom on Monday, May 7th at 7:45 pm

Having lost their Premier League crown to rivals Manchester United, City’s challenge now is to hang on to 2nd spot. The Blues go into the game on the back of 4 wins in 6 matches having only lost once in that period. With the FA Cup final this Saturday, Manchester City may have one eye on that, which could see Roberto Mancini take the opportunity to rest some players. Key players for City, should they play, will be the Argentine duo of Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero. The pair have scored 11 goals each, putting them joint second top scorers for Man City this season, only behind Edin Dzeko. West Brom go into the game having won only 1 game in their last 6. They currently sit in 8th position having started their 2012-13 season in outstanding form. In recent months they have started to lose momentum, but Steve Clarke will undoubtedly be impressed by his side’s performances throughout the season. Romelu Lukaku has been a hugely influential player for the baggies throughout their campaign and could play a big part in Tuesday’s game. The on loan Chelsea striker has scored 14 goals this season, putting him in the top 10 of the Premier League scoring charts. When the 2 sides last met, Man City clinched a 2-1 victory thanks to 2 late goals from Edin Dzeko. Get your Manchester City tickets now and see the City live against West Brom.

Wigan Athletic vs Swansea City on Monday, May 7th at 7:45 pm

Wigan go into their game against Swansea knowing that a win will pull them out of the relegation zone. Following a 3-2 victory over West Brom, The Latics will be in buoyant mood going into the game, especially with an FA Cup final to look forward to on the Saturday. Wigan have lost only 2 of their last 6 matches at home and their recent form sees them sitting 9th in the Premier League form charts. Despite an improvement in form, Wigan’s injury situation does not appear to be improving. Losing Maynor Figueroa and Jean Beausejour in the last 2 weeks means that Roberto Martinez may need to play a make shift defence for the game on Tuesday. A highly influential player for the Latics in recent weeks has been Shaun Maloney. The Scotsman has played an integral part in keeping Wigan’s survival chances alive and will be a vital member of the squad as the season comes to its climax. Swansea will also need to be wary of Wigan’s top scorer Arouna Kone. The Ivory Coast international has scored 11 goals in his debut Premier League campaign. Swansea come into the game sitting comfortably in 9th position. Since winning the League cup in February, the swans have struggled to find their form but their early season performances have prevented them from dropping into the relegation battle. Swansea will be without star striker Michu, whose season looks to be over. The Spanish forward has scored 17 goals in his first Premier League season, putting him 5th in the scoring charts. When the sides met earlier in the season, Swansea ran out 2-1 winners. Get your Wigan tickets now and see the Latics live against Swansea City.
