I was listening to Five Live this morning and Alan Green was summarising Middlesborough and Everton’s draw at Goodison Park. He explained that had either side won they may have had aspirations of breaking into the big four. He then corrected himself and questioned should it now be called the big five and include Villa!
- Chelsea 32pts
- Liverpool 32pts
- Manchester United 24pts
- Arsenal 23pts
- Aston Villa 23pts
I don’t want to claim that Villa have cut loose from the rest of the chasing pack. It should be remembered that Everton actually finished fourth a few seasons ago. Nevertheless, it didn’t half feel good to hear him say that. Come on Villa! Bring on Man U!
