CRYSTAL PALACE VS SOUTHAMPTONSouthampton have every reason to be confident having beaten Crystal Palace in their last SEVEN league clashes; Palace last won against Southampton in December 2008 at Selhurst Park, in the Championship. But in 12 previous clashes between the Eagles and the Saints in the Premier League at home and away, Palace have never won, losing eight and drawing the other four.NORWICH CITY VS EVERTONIn their last six league games Norwich have scored three goals, while they have conceded 27, the most in the Barclays Premier League.

Stoke arrive having won three of their last four league games, including last Saturday’s impressive 2-0 win over Manchester City that knocked them off the top of the table.

Dear Editor,With respect to the no-confidence vote, the Appeal Court of Guyana has ruled in favour of the APNU/AFC.This decision seems to suggest that there is one set of rules for parliamentarians and another set of rules for the rest of Guyanese particularly with respect to GECOM whereby 5 votes are cast and 3 is a majority and the Appeal Court’s own voting with 3 votes cast where 2 is the majority.How does the Guyana Appeal Court reconcile the differences in the approach used?Had it ruled that 33 is the majority out of 65 votes cast, then there would not be a need to reconcile as 3 would be a majority out of 5 GECOM votes cast and 2 would be the majority out of 3 Appellate Court votes cast.Yours Faithfully,Sean Ori
