MONDAY

This my man @D_gibson4 thats whats up. Bowe.

The former heavyweight boxing champion and Everton's Irish midfielder enjoy a peculiar moment.

TUESDAY

Andy Carroll (@AndyTCarroll)

DISGRACEFUL!!!

West Ham striker's one word, three exclamation marked response to the news that his three-game ban for the incident with Swansea's Chico Flores would stand.

WEDNESDAY

Chico Flores (@ChicoFlores12)

I'm a bit tired of the strong insults from the west Ham fans. Whoever doesn't see the aggression in that action is blind. They should be more preoccupied with the ugly way their team play football: always making very long passes and never quick short passing. They should be worried about that before caring about such evident things.Ok West Ham 2 - 0 Swansea ... Swansea 24 Points West Ham 22 Points Hahaha Smart !! Good luck

Swansea defender's far more than one word response to his Twitter detractors. His next visit to Upton Park should be fun.

THURSDAY

Liverpool FC (@LFC)

Thinking of those who lost their lives in the Munich air crash. Some things are more important than football rivalry.

A classy gesture on the 56th anniversary of the plane crash.

FRIDAY

Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5)

On social media - Negativity is like fuel for me...Positivity/support is like an arm around the shoulder, every now & again it's needed

Judging by how well his season has gone, and the general Twitter mood, the Manchester United defender should be full of fuel.

SATURDAY

Olivier Giroud (@_OlivierGiroud_)

Was a really poor performance today from me!

The Arsenal striker speaks for his entire team after being hammered by Liverpool.

SUNDAY

Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton)

Everton getting players in the anti-space causing Spurs flat midfield all sorts of problems. Bentalab over run in early stages

For those who don't know, the QPR midfielder later explains the "anti-space" is the area between defence and midfielder.
