Another day, another big game in our relegation struggle - even though our players are in Portugal. Birmingham travel to Goodison Park and a point for our League Cup conquerors would see us sink back down into the bottom three. Victory for Everton would mean, however, that Birmingham start to sweat. They would then have only one game in hand and would remain a point behind us.
You never know which Everton team will turn up of course. Some weeks they look as if they are back to their best; the next they look bloody hopeless. Hopefully Arteta will show the same form as he displayed against Newcastle and Saha will have his shooting boots on. A two goal defeat for Birmingham would do us very nicely as we would then have a superior goal difference too.
I warned that they might pay a high price for their League Cup victory. Here's hoping!
