Not bad, much needed 6 points against Liverpool & Arsenal in a week's
time.
They rose to the occasion...despite the 'Dudek's factor'.

Why are these games being played so early in the afternoon anyway?

Cheers, Paul B.

I highly suspect they are catering to Asian TV.  Big big following on ESPN
Asia.  One early match, so that two live matches can be shoved into one
evening - an 8pm game and an 11pm game.

Cheers,
Jit

It's also because they can't have it at 3pm due to broadcasting
restrictions, and they'd foresee more chance of crowd trouble by
moving it to Saturday evening

I want Man U, Liverpool and everton to go on the downswing

with Arsenal, Chelsea, Newcastle, Soton and Blackburn in the top 5.
