The disturbing death of a soccer official in Utah over the weekend after he was punched in the face by a player has me lamenting where decency and fair play has gone from in our game. We have all gotten upset by an official's call at some point, but we have lost sight of the fact that many of these people are volunteers, and are doing this for the love of the game. Teach your kids – or yourselves – this week about the importance of respect in every game they play in.

Premier League 433 2340 Barclays Premier League: May 11-14 31744004 Arsenal vs. Wigan Athletic (live, FOX Soccer, Tuesday, 2:30 p.m. ET) Arsenal+vs.+Wigan+Athletic+%28live%2C+FOX+Soccer%2C+Tuesday%2C+2%3A30+p.m.+ET%29 Premier League

Wigan make the preview twice! Congrats Latics, you are must-see TV over the next few days.

 

Their Premier League fate is out of their hands. All they can do is hope for some more late Roberto Martinez magic, and cross their fingers that teams above them fall. On the other hand, Arsenal could lock in yet another season of Champions League soccer on Tuesday. They control their own destiny (as does Chelsea), and seem to be much more focused on the prize than they were earlier in the campaign.

Premier League 433 2340 Barclays Premier League: May 11-14 31744006 Manchester United vs. Swansea City (live, FOX Soccer, Sunday, 11 a.m. ET) Manchester+United+vs.+Swansea+City+%28live%2C+FOX+Soccer%2C+Sunday%2C+11+a.m.+ET%29 Premier League

This will be Sir Alex Ferguson’s last match as manager at Old Trafford. We will have bonus postgame coverage on FOX Soccer as Manchester United is awarded the Premier League trophy, and surely there will be some memorable moments planned for Fergie's last stand. That is all you need to know about this one.

Premier League 433 2340 Barclays Premier League: May 11-14 31745479 Stoke City vs. Tottenham (live, FOX Soccer, Sunday, 8:30 a.m. ET) Stoke+City+vs.+Tottenham+%28live%2C+FOX+Soccer%2C+Sunday%2C+8%3A30+a.m.+ET%29 Premier League

A tale of two ties: Stoke's midweek draw means they are safe, while Tottenham's midweek draw means they are most likely doomed to another year without Champions League play. In the last few matches, Spurs have given off the scent of a side that knows their fate. Their midfield play and outside attack was largely absent on Wednesday against Chelsea. Their desperation seemed to be absent.

 

At last, Emmanuel Adebayor showed up, but it's been too little too late from him this season. If Spurs cannot make it into the top four, the result could be tragic for the club: Say goodbye to Gareth Bale.

Premier League 433 2340 Barclays Premier League: May 11-14 31744002 Aston Villa vs. Chelsea (live, ESPN 2, Saturday, 7:45 a.m. ET) Aston+Villa+vs.+Chelsea+%28live%2C+ESPN+2%2C+Saturday%2C+7%3A45+a.m.+ET%29 Premier League

I had to check the standings three times to confirm that my eyes were not playing tricks on me. Aston Villa is in 13th. Seriously? Well, are they safe yet? Technically no, but a surprise point on Saturday at home would essentially ensure their survival.

 

I have to give credit to Paul Lambert and his side. When the ship was sinking, he didn't panic, stood by his beliefs in going with the youth and managed to pull away from the pack. For Chelsea, their grind of a season is coming to a close, and in solid fashion. More man management is needed from Rafa Benitez in this one, because they are in Amsterdam midweek playing for the Europa League title (live, FOX Soccer, Wednesday, 3 p.m. ET).

Things are looking bleak for Wigan on all fronts. With two league matches left to play, they are three points from safety in the Premier League. Before they can focus on surviving the drop, they take on Manchester City in the FA Cup final, a team that has absolutely owned them lately.

 

The Citizens have won the last seven meetings between the two without allowing a single goal. But what has me most curious is where the Wigan focus will be on Saturday, because three days later they host Arsenal in league play, and that match could seal their relegation fate. Would their first FA Cup crown mask the pain of dropping down to the Championship next season? No. Would it take some of the sting out? Yes.
