Goals from Ledley King and Jamie O'Hara ensure that Harry Redknapp continues his run of Upton Park victories since leaving the West Ham job. The Hammers did seem to have a legitimate call for a penalty but then I've only seen the incident once. Crystal Palace romped home to a 3-0 win against struggling Southmapton in the Championship in the second biggest game last night.
The Champions League's group stages begin to come to a close tonight with Chelsea needing a win to be in control of their own destiny although a point could also cut it, the result of the other game in the group depending. Lampard is suspended but Joe Cole is likely to return from injury. I've already been to the Bridge for one cup exist this season, no more please thank you Mr Scolari. Liverpool are away to PSV having already qualified but they'll want a win to top the group.
The agony and the ecstasy in the Arseal treatment room as Eduardo is given the all clear to play in a reserve fixture in just over a week but influential midfielder is told he won't play again until March at the earliest. Plenty more rumours about the vacant Sunderland role, perhaps the most interesting (and least likely to happen?) is that Keane and Strachan will swop roles in a Celtic/Sunderland merry-go-round. David Villa will apparently fly to Manchester this week to discuss terms with City, who look poised to move for Esteban Cambiasso for £15m. Other reports have linked Man City with the Pope, the Governer of California and Buzz Aldrin.
