… and happy new year! It’s what it says on the tin, a new one and hopefully a significantly better one. Trust you have all seen it in cheerfully, safely and healthily – and now let’s crack on with something that will hopefully be a thing of the past by the end of 2021: Premier League football without fans.
It’s a cracking prospect, though, this one! Everton go second if they win, at least for an hour or two, and would really tighten things up at the top by going a point behind them down the road. They have won four straight league games despite a significant number of injury problems so today can be filed under “opportunity”.
