Ashley Young and Gabriel Agbonlahor posted 39 points each, the highest from a striker in the latest Index, Stiliyan Petrov posted his best score of the season and captain Gareth Barry notched his highest away total.

As a fan of Petrov, I'm really pleased that he's showing the form he's capable of. Agreed about these four. Good players!

Chelsea fans confuse me....but thank you, I guess. You want him, all he'll cost you is one Essien, or a Joe Cole?

LOL. I've been a fan of Petrov since his Celtic days and that's why I'm pleased that he's finally settled here. But no. I won't swap Essien or Joey for him, but what about Sidwell?? ;)
