Premiership review...

Liverpool lost 0-2 at the Reebok Stadium against Bolton courtesy of goals by Gary Speed and Ivan Campo. Prior to this game Rafa Benitez the Liverpool manager complained about Bolton's over physical approach to previous encounters with 'The Trotters'. Whether or not this inspired Bolton today is open to debate, but you can be sure Sam Allardyce the Bolton manager will have made reference to the Liverpool managers comments prior to the game.

Elsewhere, Didier Drogba continued to leave Shevchenko in his his shadow at Stamford Bridge as the Ivory Coast star gave his team an early lead in the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa. As the first half wore on the home side came under pressure from balls from the flank and Agbonlahor equalised with a header on 45 minutes. Both sides had chances to have won the game but in the end a draw was a fair result.

Arsenal gave the performance of the day at the Valley where it finished 1-2, Darren Bent gave Charlton the lead on 21 minutes, but Dutchman Robin Van Persie equalised on 32 minutes. It was a richly deserved goal as the visitors were the dominant force throughout the first half. On 42 minutes Van Persie scored a 'wonder goal' to seal the points for Arsenal who ran out fairly comfortable winners to make it five league wins on the bounce on the weekend that Arsene Wenger the Arsenal boss celebrated 10 years in charge of the club.

At Goodison Park, Everton drew 1-1 with Manchester City, once again Andy Johnson scored for 'The Toffees' but City fought back strongly late on in the game and hit the post before Micah Richard's volleyed home a rocket of a shot to give Tim Howard no chance.
