Stag Weekends Weekend Preview 6th May

It only seems like five minutes ago we were talking about last weekend! Now, another weekend is upon us, and yet again, there is much to talk about! Whether you'll be out celebrating like the Leicester lads or having a quiet one this weekend, let us give you a taste of what's install.

Leicester To Lift Trophy 

Saturday is the day Leicester City skipper Wes Morgan will get his hands on the Premier League trophy! Since the Foxes were confirmed champions on Monday evening, the entire city has been in party mode, and Saturday will top it all off. Following Leicester's match against Everton on Saturday evening, the players and staff will be presented with the trophy, and this unbelievable story may finally feel like reality!

Survival Scrap

The nervy battle to avoid the drop continues this weekend! Newcastle United claimed all three points last week, and moved out of the relegation zone for the first time since the 13th February. On paper the Magpies have the easiest fixture this weekend as well; they travel to already relegated Aston Villa who are on an 11 match losing streak. Norwich City host Manchester United in the lunchtime kick-off, and the Canaries now look least likely to avoid the drop after their defeat to Arsenal left them two points adrift. Sunderland's game against Chelsea looks a tricky one, but Sam Allardyce will take heart from the fact his side have only lost once in their last eight outings.

The £170m Game

One game, £170m at stake! That is the prospect that looms over the final day Championship clash between Middlesbrough and Brighton. Sometimes the fixture list throws up a match with an enormous amount riding on it, and this is a prime example. With Burnley already promoted, Boro and Brighton are battling it out for the second automatic promotion spot. Aitor Karanka's side currently occupy second place and only need a draw or better to keep hold of the spot. If the Seagulls fail to win at the Riverside, they will face the lottery of the play-offs. This is set to be a cracker!

King Khan

Amir Khan reaches a pivotal moment in his boxing career in Las Vegas this weekend! The 29-year-old comes up against Saul Alvarez as he attempts to claim the Mexican's WBC middleweight belt. Much of the talk pre-fight has surrounded Khan moving up two weight divisions for this bout. If King Khan can win, he will become only the third former light-welterweight world champion to win a middleweight belt. Come on, Amir!
