Comments:

League position: 13th

Comments:

League position: 1st The FA Premier League's Dubious Goals Committee ruled on the following: - Chelsea’s third goal against Middlesbrough on 18th October was in fact an own goal (David Wheater) and has therefore not been credited to Salomon Kalou. [re: Circular 1 - 5/11/2008]
