Question nobody asked - who leads the weekday league?

IT'S difficult to know what day it is at this time of year, a situation made more difficult by matches on at strange days and times over the Christmas period.

Outside of weekend games, there have been 18 Premier League clashes, seven of which have ended in draws.

Manchester City have the chance to go top of the weekday league tonight when victory over Everton would give them seven points from their three games. Otherwise, Tony Pulis' (pictured) Stoke have been the most successful team with two wins from two, while Blackpool also have six points, though from three weekday games.

Of the other teams who have played three games, Sunderland remain unbeaten, although have only managed three draws; Liverpool (4 points) and Aston Villa (3) have had limited success, while West Brom's one draw means they have dropped eight points. Every team that has played more than one game has picked up at least a point, with just West Brom, Sunderland and Everton without a victory from those 11 teams.

Birmingham, Fulham, Newcastle and Wolves are the only teams with no weekday league points, although they have only played one match.
