Sunderland passed both testing games with flying colours and is now 10 points in front heading into 1970. They are this season’s Rock of Gilbrator, the unmovable champions elect. The highlight was the 3-0 decimation of Manchester United, with Best and Charlton cameo performances at best.

Tottenham have given away second spot with two highly shocking losses to lower positioned sides. They are now two games from second spot.
Crystal Palace enjoyed their post Christmas endeavors with two strong London derby wins at Tottenham and a thumping of Chelsea at home. This has pushed them up to 8th and this team can improve on this.

WBA produced a strong and surprising win to beat West Ham, only to travel to Derby and get mauled 5-0.
