IF yesterday was all about the fight for Champions League places and the battle to avoid the drop, Sunday is about the race for the title.
Man United are first up against Everton and should increase the gap at the top to eight points. But that should be cut once again to five after Man City tackle Wolves at Molineux.
You could understand if Everton are on a downer after their disappointing defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup semi-final last weekend. I can't see them stopping the title charge but if you were back one man to score for the Goodison outfit it would Nikica Jelavic who hit the target at Wembley last week. He is 4-1 at Ladbrokes to net at any time.
City have rattled in 10 goals in their last two against West Brom and Norwich and must fancy their chances of recording another big result against the basement boys.
Wolves have conceded more goals at home than any side in the English leagues and have conceded 15 in six games as they struggle under the guidance of Terry Connor.
Some people will point to the fact they held Sunderland 0-0 at the Stadium of Light last week but the Teesiders have been off the boil and don't possess anyone of the quality of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez or David Silva.
City are no bigger than 1-4 so for value look at the handicaps. They are 9-5 at Stan James minus two and 4-1 (various) minus three. Last week's hat-trick hero Tevez is 4-1 at unibet to score first with Aguero 3-1 (various).
Liverpool are also in action as they try to convert cup form into league points. A poor season has been rescued by reaching two cup finals and Kenny Dalglish will hope his men are inspired by last week's Wembley win.
The champions have won their last two in the league without conceding and I reckon they'll return to winning ways at Motherwell.
Hearts failed to build on their Scottish Cup defeat of Celtic by losing to Rangers so how will Hibs cope after booking their final slot?
They saw Dunfermline reduce the gap at the bottom to six points yesterday so can't get complacent with a meeting against the Pars still to come.
With strikers Garry O'Connor and Leigh Griffiths, both on target at Hampden, I can see them edging a victory at home to Kilmarnock. They are a biggest 13-10 with William Hill and others and O'Connor is worth a look at 5-1 with Paddy Power to land the opener.
Both teams have scored in the last five meetings, including three this season which have totalled 11 goals. Stan James and Ladbrokes go 4-5 for both to net.
