No five-game bonanza this week but we are going on all out, with 15

minutes of Match Of the Day 2. As ever, we will look back at all

:01:07.:01:13.

yesterday's goals an incidents, and we sent Kevin Day to Norwich. Let's

:01:13.:01:16.

start with the only game in town, an old-fashioned London derby at

:01:16.:01:21.

White Hart Lane. Neil Warnock and his Rangers out that have been

:01:21.:01:26.

jamming troops to establish Premier League status, and hard work has

:01:26.:01:31.

paid off, because last week they beat Chelsea, and Rangers dug deep

:01:31.:01:35.

to cause a huge shock. Tottenham will have to be on their guard at

:01:35.:01:40.

home, but in Dutch master Rafael van der Vaart they have a player

:01:40.:01:45.

who can brush aside anyone with the greatest artistic. He has scored

:01:45.:01:55.
:01:55.:02:01.

five in the last four and is on top first episode of this London derby

for 16 years. -- the blank canvas. Queen's Park Rangers will try to

find a formula to stop free-scoring Spurs. Sebastien Bassong cross to

the bench, Kyle Walker played 20 times on loan at Queen's Park

running. Good save from Paddy understandably, with plenty of

:03:19.:03:29.
:03:29.:03:38.

bodies back behind the ball. It is Park Rangers. Van der Vaart

:03:38.:03:44.

delivers the free kick. Free header, and Adebayor could not accept the

:03:44.:03:53.

gift. What a chance. And he does not need telling. All about to

:03:53.:03:58.

delivery. Poor marking from a Queen's Park Rangers point of view,

:03:58.:04:08.
:04:08.:04:26.

and, fortunately for them, they foot. That could have gone anywhere.

:04:26.:04:32.

It was an instinctive reaction from Heidar Helguson. And that might

:04:32.:04:42.
:04:42.:04:56.

Gareth Bale is free, and that is Gareth Bale! 1-0, Spurs. Clinically

:04:56.:05:04.

finished. His first goal at White Hart Lane since January. He has

:05:04.:05:10.

broken the deadlock after 20 minutes. It was brewed one from

:05:10.:05:15.

Brad Friedel's kick, but watch Gareth Bale. Nobody picks him up.

:05:15.:05:23.

He had time to take the first touch, and the second touch was emphatic.

:05:24.:05:31.

There was no stopping that. And it had been coming. Gareth Bale's

:05:31.:05:41.
:05:41.:05:48.

second Premier League goal of the comes through to Assou-Ekotto, and

:05:48.:05:56.

over the bar, from Gareth Bale. Adebayor did well to get away from

:05:56.:06:06.
:06:06.:06:31.

King, the flag stays down, and Rafael van der Vaart scores again,

:06:31.:06:34.

for the theft Premier League game running, to double the league,

:06:34.:06:44.

Foster's. Six goals in five games for him. That was not what Ledley

:06:44.:06:49.

King originally intended, but the outcome was perfect. The clearance

:06:50.:06:55.

from Danny Gabbidon went straight to Ledley King, and his way when

:06:55.:07:03.

shot went straight to van der Vaart, who duly dispatched it. -- wayward

:07:03.:07:13.
:07:13.:07:18.

shot. No chance for Paddy Kenny, and routine for van der Vaart.

:07:18.:07:21.

Jermain Defoe and Roman Pavlyuchenko cannot get a start at

:07:21.:07:24.

the moment because of the performances of van der Vaart, in

:07:24.:07:34.
:07:34.:07:41.

penalty area, he goes for goal. He just tried to curl it into the top

:07:41.:07:47.

corner. He didn't quite get the execution correct. He is gathering

:07:48.:07:52.

his thoughts for the half-time team talk. Not sure what he is going to

:07:52.:08:02.
:08:02.:08:20.

prevents the corner kick, too. Van der Vaart - billion shot! Clock

:08:20.:08:30.

are in possession. It spins out for Rangers with Joey Barton, could

:09:02.:09:11.

jump by Helguson, and it is in, from Jay Bothroyd. His first goal

:09:11.:09:18.

for the club. And it has got them back in it. It has been a spirited

:09:18.:09:26.

response in the second half. The second header was simply nodded in

:09:26.:09:36.

by Jay Bothroyd. Not the best defending you will ever see from a

:09:36.:09:40.

Spurs point of view. Queen's Park Rangers will not worry about that.

:09:40.:09:50.
:09:50.:10:05.

kick to Spurs. -- Luke Young. Last time Queen's Park Rangers beat

:10:05.:10:13.

Spurs, Les Ferdinand was the scorer of four goals at Loftus Road. -- of

:10:13.:10:23.
:10:23.:10:24.

both goals. Paddy Kenny atone for his mistake to deny Gareth Bale.

:10:24.:10:28.

What a roller-coaster few seconds that was for the QPR keeper. First

:10:28.:10:34.

of all, he did not hold a free kick from van der Vaart, which was

:10:34.:10:44.
:10:44.:10:57.

routine, then he spread himself, to up, instead. -- van der Vaart,

:10:57.:11:07.

instead. And Gareth Bale as the nation Mark stunning strike!

:11:07.:11:15.

Magical goal from Spurs. Two for Gareth Bale, three for Spurs, and a

:11:15.:11:22.

two-goal cushion is restored. Lovely interchange between Gareth

:11:22.:11:30.

Bale and Aaron Lennon. And what about the finish from the Welshman?

:11:30.:11:40.
:11:40.:11:51.

or two at 2-1. And the Match will argue, normal service is resumed. -

:11:51.:12:01.
:12:01.:12:20.

will not go in for him. He will be wondering how he has not scored in

:12:20.:12:30.
:12:30.:12:48.

kick in the last minute of stoppage came Luke Young, and that was clear

:12:48.:12:54.

virtually off the line by two goal Gareth Bale, to keep the two goal

:12:54.:13:03.

advantage intact. Luke Young again, that time, it is clear by Younes

:13:03.:13:08.

Kaboul, and then as a poor challenge by Aaron Lennon. This

:13:08.:13:14.

will be the last action. The corner kick from Joey Barton. This time,

:13:14.:13:24.
:13:24.:13:25.

Spurs deal with it. Back in, and a header back across, and away by

:13:25.:13:33.

Adebayor. A pulsating game, and it means that Spurs go marching on, 19

:13:33.:13:39.

points out of 21 for Harry Redknapp's team. Two for Gareth

:13:39.:13:44.

Bale, and it could easily have been more. Queen's Park Rangers mounted

:13:44.:13:47.

a spirited response in the second half, but the third goal from

:13:47.:13:57.
:13:57.:14:01.

inspires Spurs again to more success. Harry's Euros move up to

:14:01.:14:06.

5th. QPR were somewhat overran and despite pulling a goal back, they

:14:06.:14:11.

did not have enough today. The amount of chances you created by a

:14:11.:14:17.

frightening. Yes, we created loads of chances. I loved the way we

:14:17.:14:22.

played, passed the ball and the movement off the ball is top class.

:14:22.:14:27.

We have smashing players and I am pleased to be part of it. It was an

:14:27.:14:32.

enjoyable game. In the first half we played great football and went

:14:32.:14:35.

in at half-time world deserve to have the lead. In the second half

:14:35.:14:39.

we came out a bit too relaxed and they hit us on the break and got

:14:39.:14:45.

that goal. The final goal eased the game off. Even I was clapping when

:14:45.:14:50.

the third goal went in. It was a fabulous goal. It is a pity he is

:14:50.:14:57.

Welsh! You do not mind it when it is as good as that. You do mind it,

:14:57.:15:01.

but you have got to appreciate quality. What about the performance

:15:01.:15:07.

of Scott Parker? It was an amazing performance. It was a complete,

:15:07.:15:11.

all-round performance. You hate to mention anybody in the same breath

:15:11.:15:17.

as Dave Mackay who was one of the finest players to play at this club,

:15:17.:15:20.

right up with the best, and Dave would have been proud of that

:15:20.:15:26.

performance. The way they played in the first half, where can spur as

:15:26.:15:30.

good this season? It will be a good team that finishes above them for a

:15:30.:15:35.

4th position. I think they will be very close. Knowing Harry Patch, he

:15:35.:15:45.

is probably thinking about a third. He has got my vote. Harry is the

:15:45.:15:55.
:15:55.:15:58.

How excited are you about Spurs? Just amazing. We have got some sexy

:15:58.:16:03.

football back at the Lane, that is for sure. The way they played this

:16:03.:16:08.

afternoon was just tremendous, all the different lines, the way they

:16:08.:16:13.

passed the ball. It was just brilliant and as a former player I

:16:13.:16:21.

would love to play in a team like that. They were good all over the

:16:21.:16:25.

park. I thought they were irresistible today. They were so

:16:25.:16:29.

difficult to play against, especially for QPR going there on

:16:29.:16:37.

the back of the result against They attacked from every area of

:16:37.:16:42.

the pitch. Parker keeps pinching the ball for them. When you play at

:16:42.:16:46.

this kind of pace it is virtually impossible to defend against and

:16:46.:16:52.

they were absolutely brilliant. Adebayor does fantastic. Lennon

:16:53.:17:01.

comes in from the right. He makes the goal for Gareth Bale. That was

:17:01.:17:04.

just under 10.5 seconds. The passing, the movement, the

:17:04.:17:09.

understanding of where players can play. Again Adebayor this time and

:17:09.:17:15.

he whips a great ball in. Still they managed to get a half chance.

:17:15.:17:22.

He has even got Adebayor making tackles, so he must be got. This is

:17:22.:17:28.

how clever display is, van der Vaart. That was his early chance.

:17:28.:17:33.

Paddy Kenny does fantastic. He thinks, where is the goalkeeper

:17:33.:17:38.

going to go? He is a real top player, what about this for a goal,

:17:38.:17:46.

though. It is absolutely fantastic. You cannot play against that kind

:17:46.:17:51.

of football. The thing with Tottenham, in the end they can slow

:17:51.:17:56.

it right down. We have had left from right, right from left, down

:17:56.:18:01.

the middle and great football. The appreciation of the passing the

:18:01.:18:07.

ball and everything. Look at the space they create for themselves.

:18:07.:18:12.

It was an outstanding performance. As Liverpool found out when they

:18:12.:18:17.

went to White Hart Lane, they cannot start slow. A Neil Warnock

:18:17.:18:22.

will be disappointed about how they set out in the first half. When you

:18:22.:18:26.

go to somewhere like White Hart Lane, you have got to be solid in

:18:26.:18:31.

front of your back four and cover that space with players. Also, you

:18:31.:18:35.

have got to do the basics right, the corners, the free kicks and you

:18:35.:18:40.

have to defend in numbers. Getting men back like this is not enough.

:18:41.:18:46.

You have to protect the area in front of the goal. They are play it

:18:46.:18:50.

around and QPR have got men around the ball who think there is no

:18:50.:18:55.

problem. They are not closing the ball down. All of a sudden van der

:18:56.:19:00.

Vaart is in that area and on goal and he gets his shot away. In the

:19:00.:19:08.

end it was saved by the goalkeeper. The danger is there. Five men back.

:19:08.:19:12.

They are in a circle. Gareth Bale gets the ball and passes it too

:19:13.:19:18.

easily into that space again. It is Adebayor in the space. Getting men

:19:18.:19:25.

back is not enough. In the end the clear it. QPR, easy possession.

:19:25.:19:29.

Concentrate when you have got the ball. Away from home, do not give

:19:29.:19:35.

the ball away. That was too sloppy. Parker was brilliant and he won the

:19:35.:19:41.

ball high up the pitch. This time, no real pressure, but there is

:19:41.:19:45.

nothing to be fearful of. Tottenham are popping the ball around. Van

:19:46.:19:51.

der Vaart gets it. Adebayor brings it down and all of a sudden they

:19:51.:19:57.

are popping it around in the last third. Too easy. A great ball into

:19:57.:20:02.

the box. Luka Modric gets on the end of it. Getting men back is not

:20:02.:20:06.

enough. That was one throw and all of a sudden they are in on goal.

:20:06.:20:12.

That is not good enough. In a corner mark your men. As good as

:20:12.:20:16.

Tottenham were in the first half, when you go away from home you have

:20:16.:20:23.

to do the basics right. QPR did a lot better in the second hat.

:20:23.:20:27.

Manchester City for them next. You said you would like to play in this

:20:27.:20:33.

side. How much do you rate than their bite? This player has got so

:20:33.:20:37.

much strength in his game. Look at all the set pieces, there is always

:20:37.:20:42.

a danger in front of the goal. He can place the ball perfectly for

:20:42.:20:47.

the strikers. He can score. His left foot is brilliant. He always

:20:47.:20:52.

puts himself in a fantastic situation. He is concentrating on

:20:52.:20:57.

the goal and he has got pace. He was the perfect signing for Spurs

:20:57.:21:02.

this season. He will make a contribution to their success.

:21:02.:21:09.

Cheap as chips in today's market. Even with van der Vaart out of the

:21:09.:21:18.

equation, are there four better midfield players than theirs? If

:21:18.:21:26.

you keep them fit, there are some side. Laura, you are not usually

:21:26.:21:32.

worry about QPR. I would be worried about who will score the goals. In

:21:32.:21:38.

the bottom 10 teams they all need a goalscorer. They have got money. It

:21:38.:21:44.

is a no-brainer for QPR in January. Go and buy a centre-forward. Even

:21:44.:21:49.

if it cost you 10 million, you have got to do it. Two clubs who have

:21:49.:21:53.

had contrasting starts to the season. Norwich started the weekend

:21:53.:21:57.

in eight and Blackburn began the weekend at the bottom. With the

:21:57.:22:02.

home side buoyed by an historic point in Liverpool, Kevin Day

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 40 seconds

:22:12.:22:52.

# Every night in my dreams I see ROCK MUSIC. # You are here, there

:22:52.:23:02.
:23:02.:23:04.

When it comes to the Premier League they say getting there is easier

:23:04.:23:08.

than staying there, so broadly speaking we broadcasters would have

:23:08.:23:12.

expected Norwich to struggle. Instead they have gone full speed

:23:12.:23:19.

ahead and now they are safely in mid- table. There is no better way

:23:19.:23:26.

to get to Carrow Road than by a relaxing boat journey. On newcomer.

:23:26.:23:31.

Welcome aboard the 12th 30 pm to Carrow Road, calling at Carrow Road

:23:31.:23:38.

only. Have you been surprised that progress has been disagreeing?

:23:38.:23:43.

Absolutely unbelievable, especially this season. Eight. Again we would

:23:43.:23:49.

have been happy with, but we are three points ahead of target.

:23:49.:23:53.

atmosphere at home is fantastic. The crowd are completely and

:23:53.:23:59.

utterly behind the manager, the backroom staff and the team. We are

:23:59.:24:05.

getting 26,000 every week. You have got Blackburn today. Our Norwich

:24:05.:24:09.

fans always patient? They are patient but realistic at the same

:24:09.:24:16.

time. It is in games like this we need to take points. My best image

:24:16.:24:20.

of the season so far was her celebrating the goal at Liverpool

:24:20.:24:25.

last week. It was fantastic. It sums up what football means to

:24:25.:24:30.

people who own the clubs. She is a real fan and she is the same as us

:24:30.:24:35.

and if we were in her position, we would do the same thing, embarrass

:24:35.:24:43.

ourselves occasionally. Grant Holt scored a proper centre-forward's

:24:43.:24:47.

goal last week. He epitomises everything that is right about

:24:47.:24:57.
:24:57.:25:02.

Norwich over the past few seasons. He is all muscle! Come on, City.

:25:02.:25:07.

Are you surprised by the start to the season? It is going right at

:25:07.:25:11.

the moment, but it will get tough in the second half. Keep your

:25:11.:25:16.

fingers crossed. You are optimistic and pessimistic in the same

:25:16.:25:24.

sentence. It is not just a wall of yellow, it is four walls of the

:25:24.:25:29.

Ella. They are playing well, their confidence is up, people expect

:25:29.:25:34.

goals and entertainment. It is a bigger game for Blackburn today

:25:34.:25:42.

than Norwich. They need a result. It is about three points. Norwich

:25:42.:25:52.
:25:52.:26:10.

are buoyant, but it could be sink fabulous from Junior Hoilett for

:26:10.:26:20.
:26:20.:26:53.

back in front, that is what matters. That was a great delivery. Lunching

:26:53.:27:03.
:27:03.:27:14.

in there was samba to score again back in the game. He could do

:27:14.:27:24.
:27:24.:27:26.

nothing about it. Can Norwich find one more chance? They claim a hand.

:27:26.:27:32.

The referee says it is a Norwich penalty. Was it a handball? Just

:27:32.:27:39.

there. That is harsh, it is ambiguous. Grant hold for Norwich

:27:39.:27:48.

to save the game. Just listen. A Norfolk cacophony as the Canaries

:27:48.:27:56.

complete their comeback. Did you expect to come back? Yes, you do

:27:56.:28:01.

down here. We got what we deserved. Blackburn will feel worse.

:28:02.:28:06.

played well for 80 minutes and controlled the game. It was the

:28:06.:28:11.

best performance of the season up until then. I am devastated.

:28:11.:28:16.

Typical Norwich. The first half was not a good performance, but in the

:28:16.:28:26.
:28:26.:28:33.

last 10 minutes we showed them what Do. What about Paul Lambert? Paul

:28:33.:28:40.

Lambert is doing a great job. The way they played yesterday was great.

:28:40.:28:49.

And they are competitive. Together everyone achieves more and it is

:28:49.:28:52.

true with a club like that. They have got a manager who is

:28:52.:28:57.

completely driven. It is sleepy Norfolk and everybody is nice when

:28:57.:29:01.

they go there, and people think they cannot be good. They are a

:29:01.:29:06.

difficult team to play. They have gone to Stamford Bridge, Anfield,

:29:06.:29:10.

Manchester United, and got a point at Liverpool. They have created

:29:10.:29:16.

loads of chances against all those teams. He has been brave and he is

:29:16.:29:21.

not afraid of sending his team out and saying, have a go. They created

:29:21.:29:31.
:29:31.:29:33.

14 chances away from home at Old Trafford. They have got no fear.

:29:33.:29:37.

Between X seven and 12, I do not know how long we have to go back

:29:37.:29:47.
:29:47.:29:56.

the promoted teams were set up. pours. They could have taken a

:29:56.:30:02.

pours. They could have taken a point but it feels like a defeat.

:30:02.:30:08.

The players were down, and rightly so, because they had the game, the

:30:08.:30:16.

three points, and lost them. Catch Match Of the Day three on the BBC's

to avoid having to be honest! That is next week and it will be the

last show from a hallowed match Of the Day studio at BBC Television

Centre. We have a trip down memory lane later, but we should pay

:30:44.:30:54.
:30:54.:30:54.

tribute to our elder statesman, the man, the legend, Lawro. How many

:30:54.:31:04.
:31:04.:31:07.

years? That was last week! I was in the YMCA! There is a common

:31:07.:31:13.

denominator - can you spot it? Edu re invent you look so many

:31:13.:31:23.
:31:23.:31:25.

times over the years? I don't know, I have had no botox either.

:31:25.:31:35.
:31:35.:31:42.

look younger now than you did then. Botox! Looking back at yesterday,

:31:42.:31:48.

we begin with Manchester City. United went to Goodison Park with

:31:48.:31:52.

their tail between their legs after that thrashing. The Champions' get

:31:52.:32:00.

it tight at the back, but only just. Everton have started like a train,

:32:00.:32:06.

and what a one that was by Seamus Coleman. Danny Welbeck years away

:32:06.:32:11.

from Tony Hibbert. He gets into the box. And Tim Howard keeps it out

:32:11.:32:21.
:32:21.:32:33.

from Ji-Sung Park. Big chances at Javier Hernandez is one of them,

:32:34.:32:42.

and he scores! Manchester United have the lead. Leighton Baines, off

:32:42.:32:47.

the woodwork. David De Gea was a spectator. He did everything,

:32:47.:32:55.

almost perfectly. David De Gea then get out Jack Rodwell with his nose,

:32:55.:33:02.

an unorthodox approach. And no penalty for this clash, said

:33:02.:33:08.

referee, Mark Halsey. Manchester City keep to their winning ways,

:33:08.:33:12.

beating goals for the second time this week. Wayne Hennessey did his

:33:12.:33:21.

best to stop them, stopping first Samir Nasri, then Sergio Aguero,

:33:21.:33:27.

and Edin Dzeko, but there was a strange case of Dr Jekyll which

:33:27.:33:31.

came over him in the second half. He is going to be a goal for

:33:31.:33:36.

Manchester City. The goalkeeper who played so well in this first half

:33:36.:33:45.

gets into a real mix up and Manchester City take the lead. So

:33:45.:33:51.

my Nasri coming in from the side. That is beautifully set up, and

:33:51.:34:01.
:34:01.:34:03.

Wayne Hennessey makes the first save but not the second, Kolarov

:34:03.:34:10.

made it 2-0. World's centre of a comeback after Vincent Kompany was

:34:10.:34:16.

sent off for fouling Kevin Doyle. Have red card and a penalty. And

:34:16.:34:25.

Stephen Hunt scores. And suddenly, Balotelli is away. Balotelli is by

:34:25.:34:32.

himself. He is not buy himself now, because Yaya Toure has joined him.

:34:32.:34:42.
:34:42.:34:45.

And so has Adam Johnson. 3-1. The decisive goal. Alan Hansen had

:34:45.:34:49.

plenty to mull over as two defence has literally fell over themselves

:34:49.:34:54.

to show which was the most porous. More chances in the first 10

:34:54.:35:00.

minutes than most games have in 90 minutes. Robin van Persie missed a

:35:00.:35:10.
:35:10.:35:19.

sitter. Lovely ball, 1-0, Josue. -- Chelsea. Lovely ball from Aaron

:35:19.:35:24.

Ramsey to Jo have been your, and Robin van Persie, into the back of

:35:24.:35:32.

the Chelsea net. -- to Gervinho. Then the Chelsea captain restored

:35:32.:35:42.
:35:42.:35:51.

the lead. I and it has crept in, Sanders, and he has scored. Arsenal

:35:51.:36:01.
:36:01.:36:05.

are level again. -- Andre Santos. Now a Andre Marriner will call over

:36:05.:36:11.

the Arsenal goalkeeper. It is a yellow card, with the Chelsea fans

:36:11.:36:17.

screaming for a red. There was a covering defender in the middle.

:36:17.:36:27.
:36:27.:36:28.

Good save by Wojciech Szczesny. Theo Walcott. He has got through.

:36:28.:36:38.
:36:38.:36:39.

And he scores! It is 3-2, to Arsenal. How he wriggled through,

:36:39.:36:49.
:36:49.:36:50.

an outstanding individual goal from Theo Walcott. Given away, and Juan

:36:50.:37:00.
:37:00.:37:04.

Mata, brilliant goal. It was a pile-driver. 10 minutes to play. It

:37:04.:37:09.

has had the feel of an end to in classic. John Terry has slipped.

:37:09.:37:19.
:37:19.:37:23.

And Robin van Persie cruise Arsenal 4-3 ahead. -- puts Arsenal. It is

:37:23.:37:28.

Tomas Rosicky, and it is four against two in Arsenal's favourite.

:37:28.:37:33.

They can finish it here. Robin van Persie is on a hat-trick, and he

:37:33.:37:41.

scores. Chelsea three, Arsenal five, scores. Chelsea three, Arsenal five,

:37:41.:37:47.

Robin van Persie hat-trick. He is unplayable at the moment, Robin van

:37:47.:37:53.

Persie. It is just amazing when he can score hat-tricks, week in, week

:37:53.:38:01.

out. The doesn't matter which took defenders push him on to it. Yes,

:38:01.:38:04.

obviously the his left foot that, but he can play with both feet.

:38:04.:38:11.

That is the perfect example. Good job at Arsenal have got them at the

:38:11.:38:21.
:38:21.:38:23.

moment. Or, Burnley, Stoke or Chester estimation Mark he is

:38:23.:38:27.

carrying the team. Much better performance going forward. Arsenal

:38:27.:38:31.

were unstoppable and to score five goals at Stamford Bridge. Overall,

:38:31.:38:37.

there is a lot of work to be done, defensively all over the place at

:38:37.:38:45.

times, by scoring five goals at Stamford Bridge. That is the best

:38:45.:38:51.

since 1967-68, and Manchester City won the league that time. Why have

:38:51.:38:56.

there been so many goals this season? Numerous reasons. Players

:38:56.:39:02.

are scared of tackling more. There are more yellow cards and red cards.

:39:02.:39:06.

The standard of defending in general is poor. Teams are having a

:39:06.:39:13.

go at other teams. The big scores, Manchester United playing a weaker

:39:13.:39:17.

side, the Manchester City game, three goals in the 90th minute,

:39:17.:39:26.

these have a little bit false, but overall, teams are having a go.

:39:26.:39:30.

reason is, once the bottom 10 teams suddenly realise they are

:39:30.:39:36.

struggling to stay in the league, they will become so much tighter.

:39:36.:39:41.

It is not just also of a equality of the players. We can see that

:39:41.:39:49.

quality is there. Teams are pushing forward, a lot. And that is what

:39:49.:39:55.

makes the difference. And that is why we're seeing so many goals.

:39:55.:40:00.

words are getting better, offenders are getting worse. It is a good

:40:00.:40:05.

combination! Manchester United, defensively, you can really get at

:40:05.:40:12.

them now. That has not always been the case. Four more games now.

:40:12.:40:22.
:40:22.:40:30.

after Darren Bent in the form of modern Irishmen. Here is stand bit

:40:30.:40:37.

of an a shooting position. And he takes full advantage, Stilian

:40:37.:40:46.

Petrov, with a brilliant finish. Lovely ball. Conor Wickham, a goal

:40:46.:40:52.

her! His first goal in the Premier League, the teenager from whom so

:40:52.:41:02.
:41:02.:41:09.

Westwood. To the absolute delight of all of those who have come to

:41:10.:41:19.

boo him. And at last, the goal that has been coming. It was James

:41:19.:41:24.

Collins and Richard Dunne he got -- to come for it, I think it was

:41:24.:41:34.
:41:34.:41:35.

Richard Dunne who got the touch. Stephane Sessegnon makes it 2-2.

:41:35.:41:39.

Life at the top is a breeze for Swansea. They still have not lost

:41:39.:41:47.

at home, and their scoring boots are on. It drops to David and Ngog.

:41:47.:41:54.

Fabulous effort. Ricardo Gardner picked up a yellow card for this

:41:54.:42:02.

challenge. We will show you the second a little later on. Danny

:42:02.:42:07.

Graham tries to time his run. He has. And he could not find the

:42:07.:42:16.

target. That was a heady touch from Ricardo Gardner. He has already

:42:16.:42:21.

been shown the yellow card. He is in trouble. And Ricardo Gardner is

:42:21.:42:31.
:42:31.:42:42.

sent off. Still, Joe Allon! 1-0 Swansea. Joe Allon, the goalscorer.

:42:42.:42:51.

It has opened up. Sinclair. Beaten away, by Jussi Jaaskelainen.

:42:51.:42:56.

went from bad to worse when Darren Pratley conceded a penalty for this

:42:56.:43:06.
:43:06.:43:17.

trip on Nathan Dyer. Scott Sinclair. on goal. Danny Graham,

:43:17.:43:22.

inadvertently, fires that passed Michel bomb, the first goal that

:43:22.:43:32.

Swansea have conceded that home this season. -- Michael Vorm. Scott

:43:32.:43:42.
:43:42.:43:43.

Sinclair! The woodwork keeps Bolton in the game. On site, Danny Graham.

:43:43.:43:53.
:43:53.:43:54.

And surely Swansea have to select, here. At last! -- to seal it.

:43:54.:43:57.

Another weekend, and another defeat for Wigan, bottom, and having not

:43:58.:44:07.
:44:08.:44:21.

isMurphy. -- there is space. Yet again a Clint Dempsey scores

:44:21.:44:31.
:44:31.:44:53.

was beaten completely. It hit the there would work for a Wigan, but

:44:53.:45:03.
:45:03.:45:08.

Fulham were clinical later on. That has wrapped it up. Roy met his old

:45:08.:45:12.

blame at his new gaffer. As always, the extras were looking rather

:45:12.:45:19.

attractive. The Reds were awarded a penalty. It was the assistant

:45:19.:45:28.

referee that gave the call. Liverpool are in front. Andy

:45:28.:45:32.

Carroll had a reasonable share for a penalty with this Steven Reid

:45:32.:45:42.
:45:42.:46:10.

Bromwich Albion. Liverpool dominated the rest of the

:46:10.:46:20.
:46:20.:46:36.

Wide. We are at the quarter way stage. No more sitting on fences.

:46:36.:46:43.

Who are you leaning towards? Well, at the moment it is too easy,

:46:43.:46:48.

Manchester City are flying. I will go for Manchester City, but I still

:46:48.:46:53.

think Manchester United can make a comeback. It was interesting 30

:46:53.:46:57.

minutes into the game when it was 0-0 at the weekend, the fans were

:46:57.:47:04.

not aggressive, but you could see little whispers. They will have to

:47:04.:47:10.

handle expectation. And they have got to get used to being chased.

:47:10.:47:14.

Manchester United can cope from January to May with all the

:47:14.:47:19.

competitions, let's see if city can do the same. They will have a bad

:47:19.:47:23.

run at some point out it is how he keeps that squad going and how they

:47:23.:47:27.

keep motivating them when somebody is chasing them. Do you know what

:47:27.:47:35.

has not happened yet? No manager has been sacked. Yet. The big

:47:35.:47:44.

headline from today. Gareth Bale and pays an did QPR today. Gareth

:47:44.:47:49.

and Rafael with an impressive performance. That is six wins out

:47:49.:47:58.

of the last nine for the Lilywhites. It moves them up to 5th. Newcastle

:47:58.:48:02.

could go above Chelsea if they beat Stoke tomorrow night. You can be so

:48:02.:48:12.
:48:12.:48:15.

-- listen to that on BBC Radio 5 QPR are six points clear of the

:48:15.:48:20.

danger zone. It is time to turn the lights out on our famous London

:48:20.:48:24.

studio as much of the day and Match Of The Day 2 enter an exciting new

:48:24.:48:28.

era in Manchester. I am more used to sitting on that side of the

:48:28.:48:34.

camera, so this is only right that I leave the goodbyes to the legends.

:48:34.:48:42.

Ready? 1, 2, 3. We hope you like the new-music. We have a few new

:48:42.:48:49.

ideas. We will be best to be our sharp at the front. Where were we

:48:49.:48:59.
:48:59.:48:59.

when we were so rudely interrupted? Shearer has gone in behind and

:48:59.:49:09.
:49:09.:49:13.

scored. Look at that! He is on the pitch. What a goal! Here comes the

:49:14.:49:21.

pot of paint. Glenn Hoddle strikes one. A beautiful goal. It looks as

:49:21.:49:29.

if it has broken out again. Absolutely beautiful. Dalglish is

:49:29.:49:39.
:49:39.:49:41.

Colin Murray introduces highlights and reaction from Premier League games - including the London derby between Tottenham and QPR.

Spurs and QPR renew their rivalry after a 16-year gap - and if you check the history books, you will see the two clubs have three wins apiece from their previous Premier League meetings. However, this fixture is best known for the 1982 FA Cup final, when Spurs needed a replay to overcome their then lower division opponents.

Expert opinion and analysis comes from Lee Dixon and Mark Lawrenson - and there is also a comprehensive review of Saturday's eight games.
