His appearance for City against Everton was only Alvaro Negredo’s fourth game for the club

Five things we learnt from the Premier League this weekend: Negredo boost; Rodgers switch; Rémy’s double; Fulham fear; QPR's self-defence

Negredo boost

The one surprise was that it was only Alvaro Negredo’s fourth game for Manchester City. The Spanish striker has been excellent all season, quicker, stronger and sharper than Edin Dzeko, and yet Manuel Pellegrini has picked Dzeko more often. But Negredo improved City when he came on against Bayern Munich on Wednesday, and was very good again on Saturday, scoring City’s first against Everton and proving a constant menace.

John Ryden: Tottenham stalwart of the 1950s

As the captain of Tottenham Hotspur for much of one campaign in the late 1950s, John Ryden was within touching distance of footballing immortality – but it passed him by. Soon Bill Nicholson took over from Jimmy Anderson as manager of the north Londoners, and the new manager rated Ryden as no more than an ordinary centre-half. He therefore excluded the tall, blond, rosy-cheeked Scot from his plans as he constructed the beautiful team which, in 1960-61, would become the first in the 20th century to lift the League and FA Cup double.
