first_imgSATURDAYS without football are not all that fun.That is the lesson learned by thousands across the country today as the coronavirus outbreak sees the first football free weekend since the Premier League was suspended on Thursday.3In the absence of sport, some fans “hilariously” claim to have discovered their partners no longer work at Woolworths or Blockbuster.While others reckon the blackout has got their housebound hubbies acting like bored children.A few are even certain their loved one’s unusual weekend presence will definitely lead to divorce.But luckily, for those desperate to get their footy fix, SunSport can reveal Saturday’s Pools results – according to Sportalys – if the games had gone ahead.And our reporters took a light-hearted look at how those matches might have played out if the games had gone ahead.ASTON VILLA vs CHELSEA – AWAY WINWith Villa languishing in the relegation zone and desperate for confidence we fancy Olivier Giroud carried on his rich vein of form and bagged two goals either side of a Jorginho penalty in a resounding 3-0 win for the Blues.Jack Grealish ran around wondering if Man Utd do shorts in kids sizes too.3BOURNEMOUTH vs CRYSTAL PALACE – SCORE DRAWThe Cherries ran Chelsea close in a 2-2 draw last time they played at the Vitality.And we reckon this latest home score draw would have seen Jordan Ayew make it three goals in three games for Palace.Before Callum Wilson’s late equaliser denied Roy Hodgson’s men their third consecutive 1-0 win in their race for the top ten.No one was particularly happy afterwards.
