Comments:

League position: 2nd

Comments:

League position: 1st The FA Premier League's Dubious Goals Committee ruled on the following: - Liverpool’s goal against Chelsea on 26th October was in fact an own goal (Jose Bosingwa) and has therefore not been credited to Xabi Alonso. [re: Circular 2 - 29/12/2008]
