  3. Premier League Goal of the Week: Aaron Wilbraham against Fulham

    Premier League goal of the week: Aaron Wilbraham for Norwich City at Fulham

    - Not so much a goal of great quality or significance this week, but more the opportunity to recognise one of the Premier League’s unlikely unsung heroes.
    - Although the 32 year-old’s deflected 77th minute strike proved to be only a consolation as the Canaries lost at Craven Cottage, it was the much-travelled striker’s 100th career goal.
    - It was also his first in the Premier League meaning he has joined the elite band of players who have scored in all four English senior divisions.
    - Others to have completed the set of scoring in four divisions includes Brett Ormerod, Dean Windass, Ian Ashbee, Barry Lines, Glyn Hodges, Alan Cork, Kevin Gage and his Norwich City team-mate Grant ...
  4. Premier League performance of the week - Sunderland

    Sunderland win this week's performance of the week for ending Manchester City’s 100% home record.

    - Manchester City went in to the game with the chance of equalling Liverpool’s all-time top division record of 21 consecutive home wins which has stood since 1972.
    - Despite their revival under Martin O’Neill, Sunderland had won only one of their last five away games in the Premier League.
    - Sunderland have not won at Manchester City since 1998 and lost 11 of their 15 previous Premier League meetings including all seven in Manchester.
    - Against the odds, Sunderland came within minutes of pulling off one of the shock results of the season and certainly put a severe dent into City’s title ambitions.
    - Seb Larsson scored either side of a Nicklas Bendtner ...

  7. Premier League performance of the week - Bolton Wanderers

    Premier League Performance of the Week – Bolton Wanderers

    Three vital points in the crucial Lancashire relegation derby against Blackburn Rovers would have made them worthy contenders for the award anyway but, of course, Bolton Wanderers have had much more to contend with in the past week.

    The Whites made an emotional return to action a week after midfielder Fabrice Muamba suffered his cardiac arrest during the FA Cup tie at Tottenham Hotspur.
    According to club doctor Jonathan Tobin, Fabrice was ‘in effect dead’ for 78 minutes following his collapse at White Hart Lane.

    Prior to the 2-1 win over Blackburn, supporters
    held up a mosaic of cards which spelled out ‘Muamba 6’, referring to his shirt number, and both sets of players ...

  8. Premier League Goal of the Week: Peter Crouch for Stoke City against Manchester City

    Goal of the Week – Peter Crouch for Stoke City against Manchester City

    There’s little need for discussion or argument for this week’s Goal of the Week as the lanky striker’s stunning effort was immediately installed as a genuine Goal of the Season contender.

    In many ways, the goal that threatens to de-rail the visitors’ title aspirations encapsulated many of Stoke City’s qualities. The spectacular opener may have come via a direct method but there was nothing crude about the end product. The England forward headed on a long clearance from keeper Asmir Begovic then took a return header from Jermaine Pennant by flicking up the ball and he then twisted to volley over Joe Hart from over 25 yards out.

    It all happened without the ball ...
