A late equaliser from Tim Cahill gives Everton what seems like a deserved point in last night's first of a Merseyside double-header, the game ending 1-1.

Rumours are that Man City, having finally given up the ghost of Kaka, will swoop for Andrei Arshavin. Dick Advocaat's statement that Arshavin was England bound but refusal to confirm it was Arsenal leading the chase may be ominous. Bellamy has completed his move to Eastlands, Spurs have been buoyed by news that Ledley King isn't seriously injured but frustrated by further hitches in their Wilson Palacios deal and Lawrie Sanchez looks like a frontrunner for the vacant Leyton Orient post (please God no).
