Premier League Footballer of the Week, Gameweek 27

Everton for the World Cup, Adam Johnson for England and Mud. How can you not love this game, this league, the drama, the terrible state of the DW in Wigan? Forget that last one. Gameweek 27 saw Everton continue their fantastic league form as they beat Manchester United emphatically at home […]
