Leicester to be outfoxed by wily Gunners

ACCOUNTANT Shek Wing-kwong takes on the mantle of this week's tipster and the amateur soccer player believes he knows a bit about the game.


As a striker with the German All Stars in the Yau Yee League, Wing-kwong has scored a few important goals and hopes to record a high strike rate in the Tipping Winners competition.


Instant-Dict striker Tim Bredbury still leads the competition with 13 points.


One point is awarded for a correct result (home win, draw or away win) with three points given for the exact scoreline.


Here are Wing-kwong's selections for this weekend's fixtures: Arsenal 3 Leicester 0 The Gunners are still in with an outside chance of the championship and will want to make sure there is no slip-up against a Leicester side who must be disappointed with their League Cup final draw.


Blackburn 0 Man Utd 0 Manchester United will have a hangover from their efforts on Wednesday and will probably be labouring a little in this one. Blackburn, after their boring 0-0 draw with Leeds on Monday will know how to grind out the draw.


Derby 2 Aston Villa 1 Derby, after their shock win at Old Trafford, will want to keep up the momentum and the new Costa Rican should prove too hot for a Villa side who have gone off the boil a bit in recent weeks.


Everton 0 Tottenham 0 Everton, like Tottenham, are in a rut and even with all the urgings of Dave Watson, a scoreless draw is about the size of this fixture for their long-suffering fans.


Southampton 1 West Ham 0 This battle at the bottom will be a lively, but low-scoring affair with Graeme Souness' grit just enough to inspire the Saints steal all three points.


FA CUP semi-finals Wimbledon 1 Chelsea 1 Chelsea should make all the running early on and deservedly go ahead but they tend to lose the plot at times and Wimbledon, dramatic battlers that they are, will come back to level and force a replay.


Boro 3 Chesterfield 0 The fairytale is over for Chesterfield and even though Boro have had a lot of pressure fixtures they will be able to take their foot off the gas and win this one comfortably to take a step towards the soccer history books.
