EFFICIENT SAKHO BACK ON TARGET

- West Ham United's Diafra Sakho, who joined for less than £4million from Metz in the summer, proved once again that he was a bargain buy when scoring his seventh goal in 11 Premier League starts in the Hammers' 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion. He now has 8 for the season, five of which have been headed - three more than any other player in the league.

GERRARD JOINS 30-CLUB

EVERTON ARE BAD BOYS FOR LIFE

MOURINHO'S CHELSEA BASHED

- Chelsea's 5-3 loss to Tottenham at White Hart Lane was only the third time one of Jose Mourinho's sides have conceded more than four goals during his managerial history. It was also only the third occasion in which Chelsea have conceded five goals in the Premier League.

NEW YEAR'S DAY GOAL BONANZA
