Off the back of a great win on Sunday we now face a tricky test in the form of our lesser hated Scouse opponents, Everton. Once again I will say it, but we are truly in the must-win-every-remaining-match stage of the season.
Unless Villa can beat United of course!
In other news/rumours....
Ancelotti praises Cech: and why not? Cech was great against Arsenal, to me it looked like the first time this season he has been confident in himself. Let's hope he can regain former ways.
Alves for £30m in the summer: on top of having Bosingwa and the brilliance of Ivanovic, Ancelotti is hoping to add the diving prowess of Angry-Eyes Alves to our long list of right backs bought for over £10m in the last few seasons! Don't get me wrong, he is a great player. But can he bring more to the team than Ivanovic has this season, I very much doubt it.
Ballack vs Wenger: the Germans prevail once again, when Ballack rightly ousted Wenger in the media as basically being a Whinger. Wenger duly went on to rant at the press over their editing skills. And who claimed he didn't have a clue about being defensive!?
JT's leg is alive: after getting a dead leg against Arsenal, presumably inflicted by a member of Team Bridge, JT is fit enough to be playing against Everton before his mind switches to this weekend's big money match in Dubai. Everton meanwhile are without Screech-alike Fellaini who is injured after last weekend's disappointing loss against Liverpool. Pienaar meanwhile will be missing after his red card in the same match.
