Round Table: Liverpool v Fulham

Well, that was nice, wasn't it?

And yea, it was indeed the Resurrection of the Downing, lo, did he ascend into Anfield heaven and take his place with the Blessed Angels above. For a little bit.

Fulham did not show up. Missing key players like Duff and Sidwell, their only hope was Berbatov and that hope disappeared when Jol decided to play him on his own up front. They rarely travel well but this was fairly abysmal from them, to such an extent that I'm not sure how much we can learn from the home performance. When Riise can basically usher Downing towards goal, with nobody helping, and Schwarzer politely gives him a few feet at his near post, it's an easy day.

Still, you can only beat what's put in front of you, Brian, at the end of the day, and it's a welcome three points in any man's language. Skrtel as deadly finisher? Agger as Ronnie Rosenthal? Gerrard getting beyond the back line to score? Clean sheet for a back on form Pepe?

Happy Christmas, folks.
