latest round of the Soccer Saturday Super 6 game

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. Adidas Garth Snow Jersey . -- The season appeared as though it was falling apart for Arkansas following a 56-3 loss to Auburn three weeks ago, particularly for a defense that had just allowed 543 yards rushing to the Tigers.Fueled by a well-timed bye week and some personnel changes, the Razorbacks (6-3, 2/3 Southeastern Conference) turned around both their defense -- and season -- with a 31-10 win against Florida last week .It was a performance Arkansas hopes to carry forward on Saturday when they host No. 19 LSU (5-3, 3-2).Winning does a lot of things for the soul, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said.To get back to winning following the humiliating Auburn loss, Bielema had a part in the defensive changes -- most notably increasing playing time for talented freshman defensive tackle McTelvin Agim and moving senior Jeremiah Ledbetter to defensive end.The result was the most dominant defensive performance of the season, with the Razorbacks holding the Gators to a season-low 12 yards rushing on 14 carries.It was a improvement of 531 yards from one game to the next by a defense that had to wait two weeks to play Florida after being humbled by Auburn.It was tough, going into a bye week after a loss like that, defensive end Deatrich Wise said. You hear two weeks of that constant reminder of what you did. We just had to get our mind right ... It was hard, but we just changed the demeanor of how we do things, made things simpler.While the Florida win showed what Arkansas new-look defense is capable of, it will face an even more difficult test this week against an LSU team that leads the SEC with an average of 6.2 yards per carry.With junior running back Leonard Fournette leading the way, the Tigers average 214 yards rushing per game -- 236.3 yards on the ground in the four games since interim coach Ed Orgeron took over following the firing of Les Miles . And that despite only gaining 33 yards rushing in last weeks 10-0 loss to No. 1 Alabama.Orgeron knows the Razorbacks arent likely to present the same physical challenge up front defensively, but hes also aware Arkansas success a week ago could easily carry over to this week.He also knows how well the Razorbacks have played in defeats of LSU in each of the last two seasons, games in which Arkansas has held the Tigers to a combined 95 yards rushing on 62 carries.They got bigger on the front and it worked for them, Orgeron said. The open date obviously was very beneficial to them ... Overall they played better. It seemed like they played as a team.---AP Sports Writer Brett Martel in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, contributed to this report.---More AP college football at http://collegefootball.ap.orgCheap Islanders Jerseys . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. Cheap Islanders Jerseys Authentic .

Last weeks predictions Result Merses prediction Arsenal 1-0 Norwich 3-0 Everton 2-1 Bmouth 2-1 Newcastle 1-0 Palace 2-1 Stoke 1-1 Sunderland 1-1 Watford 3-2 Aston Villa 1-1 West Brom 0-3 West Ham 1-2 Soton 4-2 Man City 1-1 Man Utd 1-1 Leicester 2-1 Swansea 3-1 Liverpool 2-2 Chelsea 2-2 Spurs 3-2 Leicester v Everton - Saturday Night Football, from 5pm, Sky Sports 1 HD This is a big game for Roberto Martinez. I dont think he can go there, roll over and watch Leicester win the trophy. I think itll be a very, very entertaining game, but I do think Leicester will win it. With their momentum, and everything about the game, I can see them winning it, just to finish the party off. Martinez is getting a lot of criticism. I think hes a very good manager abroad, I think his teams play good football but I think it suits La Liga and not the Premier League.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 Sky Bet odds 15/2)Tottenham v Southampton - Super Sunday, from 1pm, Sky Sports 1 HD All of a sudden Tottenham have gone from title chasers to wondering if theyre going to finish above Arsenal. For me, theyve got to give their all for this game if they can. If they dont finish above Arsenal, thats a double blow after not winning the league, for the fans especially. Theyve had a great season, but I think this will be a difficult game. Im going to go 2-2, I think Southampton are a decent team, and Tottenham may just have a hangover. Ronald Koeman has done a brilliant job at Southampton, and Id like to see him at Arsenal if Im honest. Hes a top, top manager.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 Sky Bet odds 12/1)Man City v Arsenal - Super Sunday, from 3.30pm, Sky Sports 1 HD I think Arsenal win this game. Man City will have a hangover, although Ive never seen anything like that game at the Bernabeu. I had to watch the game and remind myself it was a Champions League semi-final. After 15 minutes, Sergio Aguero is getting the ball off the centre-half. Ive never seen anything like it. If theres ever a chance for Arsenal to win at the Etihad again, this is the game. If they dont win this game, youd have to ask serious questions. Man City are there for the taking, all day long.PAUL PREDICTS 1-2 Sky Bet odds 9/1) Paul Merson runs through his Sky Sports Fantasy Six-a-Side team as he takes on Phil Thompson for Man City v Arsenal Norwich v Man Utd - Saturday, 12. Cheap Islanders Jerseys China. 45pm I think this will be a good game, its one of those that both teams have to win. Theres no point playing like Man City, theyre both going to come out and have a go, and Ill go Man United to pip it in a high-scoring game. Itll be entertaining, Norwich are fighting for their lives and so are United but in a different context. I just dont see this one being a boring game.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-3 Sky Bet odds 28/1)Aston Villa v Newcastle - Saturday, 3pmI think theres more of a twist than people think in this. Newcastle are odds of 1/2 here. Theyve taken one point away from home in 2016, how can you justify being 1/2? I know Villa havent been great, but you cant be backing a team at 1/2 away from home with a record like that. Im going 1-1 here, because Newcastle will have to come out and have a go, and Villa will cause a few problems. Newcastle went down at Villa in 2009 and will be out for revenge but the Villa fans wont want to lie down either. I just think people see this as nailed on, but I dont.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 Sky Bet odds 6/1)Bournemouth v West Brom - Saturday, 3pmWest Brom have done the job by staying up. There could be three huge football clubs going down this year, and West Brom are staying up, that just tells you everything about the job Tony Pulis has done there. Fans might want more as the years go by with Pulis, but Charlton wanted a bit more when Alan Curbishley kept them up every year, where are they now? Be careful what you wish for.Eddie Howe is up there among the managers of the year. Bournemouth have done a good job, but next season they might not be riding on that wave after promotion.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 Sky Bet odds 7/1)Crystal Palace v Stoke - Saturday, 3pmI knew Stoke wouldnt lose last weekend after being beaten badly three on the trot, and I was impressed with Palace giving it a right go at Newcastle. Palace wont start resting players for the FA Cup final just yet, and its the last home game of the season so I think theyll try and put on a bit of a show. Theres not a lot between these two sides. Some would say Stoke have been indifferent this season with Mark Hughes, but its only really been the last few games. Other than that I think theyve been very entertaining. Everybody is being judged compared to Leicester it seems, so for everyone else its a bit of a benchmark, but theyve finished above teams they probably didnt think they would at the start of the season.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 Sky Bet odds 5/1)Sunderland v Chelsea - Saturday, 3pmThis is massive, and Im predicting Sunderland to win this. I say that because Chelsea had their cup final on Monday, and now a lot of players will have their eyes on the Euros. If Sunderland can come out and start getting stuck in early on, make it a real cup tie if you like, a lot of the Chelsea players will have one eye on the summer. Sunderland should have more fight about them, Chelsea put most of theirs into Monday, and I wouldnt be surprised if a few players are rested. Its so much more important for Sunderland.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 Sky Bet odds 9/1)West Ham v Swansea - Saturday, 3pmI can see West Ham winning this easily - 3-0. Swansea go to Leicester and lie down, and then host Liverpool and theyre like the Harlem Globetrotters, and that sums it all up for them this season. West Ham can still creep into the top four, and I really think theyll win their last three games. Even if they dont, this is a superb season for them going into the Olympic Stadium. Theres a buzz around Upton Park, and they should carry that down the road. The last game will be emotional, but I see them romping to a win here.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 Sky Bet odds 9/1)Liverpool v Watford - Sunday, 4pmAfter their Europa League win, surely Liverpool have to rest their key players until the final, its their chance of getting through to the Champions League. Football has gone mad with this Quique Sanchez Flores situation. This is the first time theyve stayed up after being promoted to the Premier League, and he got them to the semi-final of an FA Cup. They got promoted last year and sacked the manager, so nothing surprises me. The problem is, they dont get it wrong too often, so you cant be too judgmental. Well have to see, they just want to keep improving.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 Sky Bet odds 13/2)PLAY SUPER 6!Theres another £250,000 jackpot up for grabs in the latest round of the Soccer Saturday Super 6 game. All you have to do is predict the scores of the six selected matches.
