Henderson1 Arsenal are back to their flowing best. They could be up to third if they win their game in hand despite a poor start.
2 Watford need to sign a striker who will put their chances away.
3 Manchester City are challenging Middlesbrough to be this season’s Jekyll and Hyde team.
4 Referees see things differently to the rest of us. Saturday’s matches in particular were littered with dodgy decisions.
5 Jermain Defoe is hungry.
6 Newcastle’s poor run has left them hovering dangerously above the relegation zone.
7 Fulham have got their act together this season. And it’s always nice to see Volzy on the scoresheet.
8 Benni McCarthy and Jason Roberts’ identical poor penalty plan didn’t come off.
9 Andriy Shevchenko is still capable of scoring goals.
10 Emile Heskey will be linked with an England call-up soon. NO!!!!!!!!

    You might as well add Liverpool’s quest for the Premiership is over.

  2. Ross says:

    Emile Heskey has been playing brilliantly for us. His goal against city was a cracker and other than that he fought for every ball and played fantastic. Much better than Jermaine Defoe,this seasons anyhow.
