Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho complained in recent weeks that fixture scheduling had robbed his team of the chance to put Premiership leaders Manchester United under more pressure in the race for the title. Well, the champions get that chance tonight when they have the early kick-off against Tottenham, which gives them the chance to close the gap to three points before Manchester United go into action in the late live game at Portsmouth. Tottenham gave Chelsea all sorts of problems in last month's FA Cup quarter-final at Stamford Bridge, leading 3-1 at half-time before Mourinho's team fought back for a draw. Chelsea won the replay comfortably, however, and it is doubtful whether Tottenham will have the same fight in them tonight, particularly after Thursday's Uefa Cup visit to Sevilla. A Chelsea win would turn up the heat on United, who have had problems against Portsmouth in the past. Portsmouth won both home games against United during Harry Redknapp's first spell in charge at Fratton Park, though they lost 3-1 last season shortly after Redknapp's return to the club. United, however, could not have picked a better time to play Portsmouth, who have won only two out of 12 against Premiership teams in 2007 (a run that included a 2-1 FA Cup defeat at United). The best bet in the Premiership tonight may be Bolton on the handicap at local rivals Wigan. Bolton have won four and lost only one of seven away to the Premiership's worst 10 home teams - Wigan rank second-bottom on home form. Barcelona are back in a clear lead in Spain's Primera Liga and they look set for a strong finish now that key attackers Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi are back in partnership with Ronaldinho. With all three in the starting line-up, Barcelona have won 13 and drawn two of 15, but they have been together for only six games so far this season. Now that all three are available for coach Frank Rijkaard, Barcelona will be very difficult to stop and they should stay out in front with victory at Zaragoza tonight. Recreativo and Deportivo are most attractive home bets in Spain. Both seem underestimated against struggling opponents. Roma, fresh from their midweek Champions League win over Manchester United, have the form to win at Catania in Serie A. Catania have slumped since the tragic events surrounding their derby against Palermo two months ago, losing six and drawing two of their eight games. The only doubt about Roma's chance is whether they will rest key players ahead of the return match against United. Hamburg have climbed up the Bundesliga table under new manager Huub Stevens, with five wins and only one defeat in eight games, but Stuttgart (four wins and two draws from their last eight) are capable of beating them tonight. The best bet in France is Toulouse, who visit third-bottom Sedan. The hosts have been hard to beat at home, but fourth-placed Toulouse are good enough to win. Aways: Roma. Handicap: Stuttgart, Toulouse.
