Agent Enrique, we salute you

Here's to Jose Enrique, who seems not to have forsaken us. A dreadful cock-up in injury time at Loftus Road last night handed Jamie Mackie the goal that completed a remarkable comeback for hosts QPR over Liverpool, who were two up and cruising with just 13 minutes remaining. The result leaves "King" Kenny's Scousers with a mightily unimpressive four defeats in five league games and ensures the five-point gap is maintained.

There was equally good news from the Etihad too, with the side immediately above us also suffering from a stirring comeback by their opponents. Man City were trailing to Gary Cahill's deflected goal until a Sergio Aguero penalty and a moment of magic from renaissance man Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri sealed the win.

However, both our rivals have home games on Saturday - Chelsea against totally out-of-sorts Spurs and Liverpool against relegation-haunted Wigan - so our position could be less rosy by the time we kick off at the Hawthorns on Sunday afternoon.
