Reading 1-2 Liverpool

Not the most impressive performance, but a somewhat rotated team were enough to earn an away win that puts us in a good position for 3rd with Arsenal's shock defeat. With the title race also becoming closer, presumably distracting both Utd and Chelsea from Europe, I guess you could say other results went our way.

Back to our own performance, Arbeloa and Mascherano got another chance to both gel and impress, and I was particularly pleased to see substitutes Pennant and Kuyt combine for the winner. It's nice to see we have game-changing options on the bench, because I've never particularly rated Rafa's substitutions (it seems he prefers to change the starting line up, rather than make tactical switches during the game).
