The weekend’s football was hardly the goal fest of last week, but it provided some important results at the top and bottom of the Premier League. Everton and Birmingham thwarted both Tottenham and Chelsea’s title aspirations, while Wigan are edging their way out of the bottom three with a hard fought draw.
In the papers this morning there have been a mixed bag of stories, as Redknapp is confirmed on England’s shortlist; Carlos Tevez backs Mancini, while Mark Hughes remains unconvinced by Arsenal’s defensive pairing.
