WHAT A WAG 

Kevin Kilbane has seen the Hornets reverse up the table:
“Once Watford get their tails in front, they’re hard to beat….”

 

BOTTOMS UP 

That’s how it works for Alan Brazil too:
“Another defeat sends Leicester top of the Premier.”

ONE FOR YOURSELF 

Trevor Sinclair reports on how Petr Cech has gone above and beyond:
“He’s learnt five languages just to communicate in the native tongue of his back four.”

COUNTING HIS BLESSINGS 

Glenn Hoddle’s beliefs were offended by whatever half-time rituals Arsene Wenger conducted:
“What goes on in the dressing room… that’s sacrilege.”

ANIMAL INSTINCTS 

In the grueling Old Testament era, Daniel was fortunate he didn’t have to turn to Neil Warnock for guidance:
“Chris Ramsey was thrown into the lions’ den and just had to swim.”
YOUR MA 

Ostensibly defending enigmatic young Baggie Saido, Ian Wright did nothing for the reputation of Mrs Berahino:
“He’s a really good lad, he loves his mum… we all do….”

TAKING THE POSITIVES 

His side might have lost 5-0 at home to Coventry, but manager Steve Davis felt hard done by:
“If you take the goals away, there wasn’t much between the teams. We made five mistakes and were punished.”

TACTICS TRUCK 

Owen Hargreaves pinpoints:
“Navas will give them width out wide.”

WORD OF THE WEEK 

Niall Quinn: “Lethargicness.”

WHAT A NUGGET 

Chris Kamara battered Aston Villa keeper “Brad Goujon.”

UNJUST DESSERTS 

Martin Tyler went full Partridge at Goodison:
“The Toffees started stickily here, but they’re looking for a sweet finish…”

DRAW SPECIALISTS 

Georgie Bingham reveals why Everton may look a little weary:
“They have drawn more than any other team in the Premier League. In fact it’s five draws in the last three games for them.”

TV BLACKOUT 
“We have our first goal in the Premier League in 2016,” roared Jeff Stelling, when Sunderland’s van Aanholt netted. Unlucky Michail Antonio, under Sky policy, midday matches screened by BT never happened.

WORD OF HOD  
The hectic festive programme rattled Glenn Hoddle:
”Two games within such a short period of space.”
“The games are coming quick and fast.”
