Unfashionable Wigan visit Arsenal on Tuesday and host Aston Villa on Sunday, needing to win both ganes to be sure of avoiding relegation.
SuperSport United v ENPPI
SuperSport United have been dumped out of the CAF Confederation Cup after a 3-1 loss to Egyptian side ENPPI at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.
South African sides have had a notoriously lackadaisical attitude to CAF competitions in the past, but SuperSport has talked up their determination to do well this year.
Maluleka had SuperSport in front on 10 minutes though with a fantastic strike from just outside the box that flew into the top corner.
But the tie turned on two goals in as many minutes for the visitors just before halftime and Ivorian forward Vincent die Foneye got Ismaily both.
Record four-time African Footballer of the Year Samuel Eto'o scored for Russian big spenders Anzhi Makhachkala at the weekend on his return from a knee injury.
However, the Cameroonian star could not prevent Dynamo Moscow fighting back to force a 3-3 draw and leave Anzhi third in the table, 10 points behind leaders CSKA Moscow with five rounds left.
Benin midfielder Stephane Sessegnon was on target for the second consecutive week, with his late first-half goal giving lowly Sunderland a 1-0 home victory over Everton.
Younes Bellakhdar and Khamis Mcha
ASEC Mimosas only managed a 1-0 victory over Lydia LB Academic on Saturday in Abidjan, in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup’s second round tie.
The score could have been much heavier in favour of the Ivoirians who had endless opportunities in that game, which appeared pretty much like a one way affair.
The locals had their first opportunity in the 8th minute with a Goua Mahan’s strike cleared by the Burundian keeper, Nyabenda Athanase for the header of Mimos’ skipper Hugues Zagbayou who ended up off target.
Unfortunately for the visitors, an injured Nyabenda had to leave the field, making room for second choice keeper Epimaque.
