American keepers TIM HOWARDand MARCUS HAHNEMANN will be happy to bid farewell to 2007 after combining to give up 10 goals in English Premier League action on Saturday.

Everton was leading Arsenal, 1-0, going into the second half of their game at Goodison Park when the Gunners rallied for four unanswered goals and won, 4-1, to regain first place in the EPL ahead of Manchester United, which lost to West Ham United, 2-1.

Howard and Nigerian defender Joseph Yobo were at fault on the third goal when they both stood looking at a long goal kick by Manuel Almunia bounce on the edge of their penalty area -- and let Togolese Emmanuel Adebayor step in to score the easiest of goals.

Hahnemann gave up six goals in Reading's 6-4 loss at Tottenham. The Royals had led four times, yet Spurs pulled even each time and went ahead when Hahnemann saved Roy Keane's penalty kick but Jermain Defoe slotted home the rebound.

BRAD FRIEDEL saved a Steve Howard penalty to turn the tide for Blackburn, which was trailing Derby County, 1-0, but went on to win, 2-1.

JONATHAN SPECTOR was whistled for a hand ball in the area in West Ham's game against Man. United, but Cristiano Ronaldo missed wide with a chance to put his team ahead, 2-0.

CARLOS BOCANEGRA scored for Fulham in its 1-1 tie at Birmingham.

On Wednesday, JAY DEMERIT scored in Watford's 2-2 tie with Cardiff. TheBoxing Day tie was followed by a 4-2 loss to QPR, also at home, and Watford fell into second place with Bristol City, behind West Bromwich.
