Happy days: Burnley celebrate a deserved point at Manchester City on Saturday
CITY SLACKERSLiverpool have had a terrible run of form, but, if they beat Birmingham tonight, they will overtake Manchester City in the table after City took their run of draws to five on the spin. Mark Hughes might be busy in January.
MISSING LINKDebate about Fernando Torres is taking up a great deal of space. But with Liverpool's injuries, suspensions and poor form, I wonder if there is regret at letting Sami Hyypia leave. His new team, Bayer Leverkusen, are going well.
GUNNING FOR TOPApart from at West Ham, Arsene Wenger's Arsenal have been ruthless against bottom-half teams. They've not just turned up for the show matches and they look title challengers.
KEEPING IT TIGHTWinning 1-0 when you haven't played well is the sign of a team capable of taking the title. Chelsea dropped 18 points at home last season, but they've won six on the spin. John Terry's back four are winning games.
WELCOME BACK, JIMA big victory for Hull. Jimmy Bullard was dynamic in midfield, where he looked every bit their record signing. If they are going to survive, they will need his character as well as his ability.
