Draw, 1-1. Another vital game, but a draw nonetheless.

Are you playing a 4-5-1 or a 4-4-1-1?

4-4-1-1/4-2-3-1 cross as per usual, with inverted wingers usually. This time, with Albrighton, we can have some natural width. God knows how we're lining up, with three wingers plus Pires on the pitch...

Fabian Delph on... for a left back. Well done Houllier, great idea not putting a defender on the bench...

This is ridiculous. Should be something like 3-0 up, but no goals. Pires has been... immense, actually. :$

It's so obvious they're going to go in, come back out a different team and win it with a goal on the break...

EDIT: YOUNG PENALTY 1-0 VILLA

Fantastic game from Villa, Pires has rolled back the years today, been quite disappointed with Bent tbh, he's not been ruthless as you'd expect from him. Enjoying seeing Albrighton cut in and shoot but I think he's more dangerous on the right with his fantastic crossing ability.

EDIT: What an undeserved goal, we've defended well today, deserved our clean sheet compared to Blackburn who've created almost nothing.

EDIT 2: Ashley Young you beauty! Great goal! 4-1.

This is ridiculous. Love playing Blackburn, our games are great fun.

Also, woo me for getting more or less everything wrong in the buildup. Young has been great.

Classic Heskey, missed from 2 and a half yards, it's honestly why I love the man, only because we're 3 goals to the good though
