theyre on a bit of a slump with the Europa League

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres meet for the fifth and final time this regular season tonight when the Atlantic Division clubs clash at Air Canada Centre. Jasper Cillessen Jersey . You can watch the game live on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Leafs and Sabres have split the four previous meetings, with each club winning twice at home. The previous two encounters have both gone past regulation, with Buffalo recording an overtime victory on Nov. 29 nearly a month prior to Torontos 4-3 shootout triumph on Dec 27. Overall, the teams have split their past 20 meetings, with the Maple Leafs winning three in a row and nine of the last 11 played in Toronto. The Leafs are looking for a third straight victory tonight after holding off the Boston Bruins 4-3 on Tuesday. Tyler Bozak scored twice and added an assist, while Jonathan Bernier made 14 of his 38 saves in the third period. James van Riemsdyk had a goal and an assist, Jake Gardiner scored and Phil Kessel tallied three helpers as Toronto has won back-to-back contests following a four-game slide. "Well weve been giving a better effort thats for sure," said Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle. "Weve raised our compete level and were going to have to continue to do that to get points. Thats the most frustrating part for our hockey club has been that we havent been able to achieve that with any consistency. Thats frustrating for the coaching staff, thats for sure." Carlyle is likely to give James Reimer the start in net tonight. He is 1-0-1 against the Sabres this season, allowing five goals on 64 shots faced, and is 6-2-2 against them lifetime with a 3.27 goals against average. However, Jonathan Bernier picked up a victory for the Leafs and has started nine of the Leafs last ten games. Bernier is 1-1 against the Sabres this season, including a the shootout victory on December 27, when Bernier stopped all three shootout attempts he faced. Kessel, van Riemsdyk and Nikolai Kulemin have all scored twice against the Sabres this season. Buffalo heads out on the road for a game after having an eight-game home point streak snapped last night in a 4-3 setback to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Sabres are just 4-14-2 on the road compared to 9-13-3 at home, but return to Buffalo for three in a row starting on Saturday. Tied at 1-1 going into the third period on Tuesday, the Sabres and Flyers engaged in a back-and-forth frame that featured five goals in total. The last went to Philadelphia as Vincent Lecavalier scored with 14.8 seconds left in regulation. Cody Hodgson, Matt DAgostini and Tyler Ennis tallied for the Sabres, who had been 6-0-2 in their previous eight at home and lost for the fourth time in the last six games overall. Steve Ott chipped in two assists in defeat, while backup Jhonas Enroth stopped 29 shots. It marked the first time that the Sabres scored more than two goals in a game the Enroth had started since Nov. 2 and he fell to 1-9-4 with a 2.57 GAA and .913 save percentage this season. "Hes been our best player when hes played. We just havent gotten him the goals," said DAgostini. Ryan Miller should get the start in net tonight for Buffalo and is 2-0-1 with a 1.95 GAA in three games against Toronto this season. Defenseman Tyler Myers is eligible to return to the Sabres lineup after serving a three-game suspension for a hit to the head of New Jerseys Dainius Zubrus on Jan. 4. Myers has four assists in four games versus the Leafs this season, while Matt Moulson has tallied a pair of goals and two assists. Andre Gomes Jersey . The four-time Grand Slam champion has beaten Hantuchova nine straight times, with the Slovaks only win coming when they first played 10 years ago. "I had a tough first opponent who can play extremely good tennis," Sharapova said. Paulinho Barcelona Jersey .Y. - Referee Ed Hochuli referred to replay official Tom Sifferman by his nickname Jungle Boy, which was heard on the in-stadium microphone during the Arizona Cardinals-Carolina Panthers NFC wild-card game Saturday.Sky Sports football pundit Paul Merson is back with another round of Premier League predictions. Merse went up against his son, St Albans Sam Merson, with his predictions last time out, with the Magic Man picking up four results and one perfect score. Sam registered just two correct results.Heres how they got on... Last time out... Result Paul Merson predicted Sam Merson predicted Liverpool 6-1 Watford 3-1 3-0 Leicester 1-2 West Brom 2-1 1-1 Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham 3-1 3-1 Hull 2-1 Southampton 0-2 1-1 Swansea 1-3 Man Utd 1-2 0-1 Bmouth 1-2 Sunderland 2-0 2-0 Burnley 3-2 Palace 2-1 1-2 Man City 1-1 Boro 3-0 2-0 West Ham 1-1 Stoke 1-1 0-1 Chelsea 5-0 Everton 2-0 2-2 Manchester United v Arsenal (Saturday 12.30pm, live on Sky Sports 1)I think this will be a draw. Arsenal thought they could turn up in February and win, and ended up getting beaten 3-2.Wenger is moaning about Alexis Sanchez and Chile, I think hes just starting to make excuses already. Arsene Wenger goes up against Jose Mourinho on Saturday Really, Arsenal should win this game on form, but with Jose Mourinhos record against Wenger, I think he has a hold over him. Im going 1-1.I think Mourinhos record over Wenger makes a big difference. People arent really expecting United to win this, with Arsenal playing well, but Im going one each.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1) Man Utd vs Arsenal November 19, 2016, 11:30am Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Middlesbrough v Chelsea (Sunday 4pm, live on Sky Sports 1)Boro have turned the corner. To pick up five points from their last three games - away at Arsenal where they should have won, home to Bournemouth who were on form, and to then get a draw at City, who had just beaten Barcelona.This will be very, very difficult for them, and I think theyre going to set up, as they did against Arsenal and City, to make it very difficult for Chelsea to break them down.Ive played at Boro, its harder to sit back at home than it is away, because the fans will want you to attack, but if they open this game up it will get messy. Chelsea are on fine form at present The three at the back is working for Chelsea, and I think the wing-backs have done great. But playing wing-back is the graveyard shift, its a hard job. Youre up and down, up and down all day, you have to be the full-back and the winger at the same time.Id be shocked if Conte can get his wing-backs doing that week in, week out, and when they start getting tired, you start playing five at the back and getting overrun in midfield. If they can rotate their wing-backs, they can do anything.Theyve been outstanding since the Arsenal defeat, they have ripped teams apart. They made Everton look like a League Two team.PAUL PREDICTS: 0-2 (Sky Bet odds 11/2) Mboro vs Chelsea November 20, 2016, 3:30pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass West Brom v Burnley (Monday 8pm, live on Sky Sports 1)I actually think this will be a really, really good game, one of those games that both clubs look back on at the end of the season and say: That was a massive, massive result.The top teams can lose a game and then win five on the trot, but every game is a cup final for these mid-to-bottom teams.I like both managers, they dont get anywhere near the amount of credit they deserve. Sean Dyche barely gets a mention! Who can do the job hes done? Sean Dyche doesnt get the credit he deserves, says Merse West Brom will never go down as long as Tony Pulis is manager. I can understand the fans frustrations somettimes, because they often dont open the game quickly enough. Nelson Semedo Barcelona Jersey. But they have some very good players in Rondon, McClean and Brunt.I think theyll actually have a go at Burnley, and I think Burnley will do the same. I think it will be entertaining. Both teams need to win, and these are the games that these teams highlight.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-2 (Sky Bet odds 40/1) W Brom vs Burnley November 21, 2016, 7:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Sunderland v Hull City (Saturday 3pm)Im going for Sunderland here. I watched them against Bournemouth and they were decent. Moyes played two up front, and I think thats the important thing.Victor Anichebe was unbelievable, unplayable, and I expect them to beat Hull. Victor Anichebe starred for Sunderland against Bournemouth Hull got a massive result against Southampton, but this is difficult. They need to get something from the game, but I think the home advantage will make a difference.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Watford v Leicester City (Saturday 3pm)This will be a good game, and I dont see much between the two teams. At the moment I think theyre relatively evenly matched, and you dont know whether Leicester are going to rest players for the Champions League. Will Leicester rest any players for their midweek Champions League game? Watford havent really got that run together, but overall I think theyve done great to be where they are. They cant moan at their last 18 months at all.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Crystal Palace v Man City (Saturday 3pm)This is a big one. Coming back off the international break is always a leveller.Palace are on one of those Alan Pardew runs, where you can win five on the trot then lost five on the trot. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price The other week, when Palace got back to 2-2 against Burnley, there looked to be only one winner, then Burnley go up the other end and score. Its a rotten run.I think it always feels like a hard place to go, Selhurst Park, but Aguero didnt play for Argentina in midweek and I can see him firing.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-3 (Sky Bet odds 10/1) Sergio Aguero was rested for Argentina in midweek Everton v Swansea (Saturday 3pm)I cant see anything but an Everton win here. I know they got a good hiding at Chelsea, but if Chelsea keep playing like that, a lot of teams will be on the end of that.But Swansea are struggling. I like Bob Bradley, and Paul Williams has just come in to help him out, but is that a Bob Bradley appointment? Its a bit of a strange one for me. Everton will stroll past Swansea, says Merse I think Everton will get back on track here with a comfortable win.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (Sky Bet odds 10/1)Stoke City v Bournemouth (Saturday 3pm)I never go against Stoke at home, as you know! Theyre flying at the moment, theyve turned the corner, and Bournemouth have had two shocking results against Boro and Sunderland.They were on a nice little run, and I dont think they took their foot off the gas per se, but they got a tad lackadaisical.At the end of the day, theyve put themselves in a bit of a problem now. If they lose this, thats three on the trot, and when one minute youre looking at mid-table, the next youre looking at teams around you and youre dragged back into it. Wilfried Bony hit form for Stoke against Swansea Stoke have been as good as anybody in the last few weeks, and when Bony has his confidence, hes so hard to play against.Joe Allen is playing as well as anybody, Arnautovic I have always said is top drawer, and Shaqiri too. When theyre all clicking at the same time, Stoke are a force.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 14/1)Southampton v Liverpool (Saturday 3pm)This should be a real, real good game. For Liverpool, these are the times youve got to take advantage. Other teams will come back from international duty, look at the fixtures and think: Wait a minute, weve got Champions League and Europa League this week, do we rest players or not?Liverpool dont have to do that. Jurgen Klopp can play his best team, tell them to have a couple days off in the week, and thats your advantage.Southampton have had a couple of shocking results, being completely outplayed by Chelsea, and then going to Hull and losing. All of a sudden, theyre on a bit of a slump with the Europa League game coming up. Liverpool hit six past Watford last time out Three weeks ago this looked like a difficult game, and all of a sudden it doesnt now.Liverpool so far this season are the most exciting team in the Premier League, but theres a long way to go.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-3 (Sky Bet odds 14/1)Tottenham v West Ham (Saturday 5.30pm)Im going to go for a comfortable Spurs win. Theyve had a couple of bad results in the Champions League, but theyre still undefeated in the league.It was a very even game against Arsenal a fortnight ago, and with West Ham still struggling, I cant see anything but a Spurs win. Tottenham striker Harry Kane celebrates after equalising against Arsenal These two really dont like each other, full stop. Its a big grudge game. To be unbeaten so far this season is some going in a difficult league.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 6/1)Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!
