Although there’s only one Right Result decision this week, there are dramatic changes in the league table.

At the Riverside, there was a text book example of the interfering with an opponent criteria of the offside law. Portsmouth’s goal in the key relegation tussle at Middlesbrough should not have stood as David Nugent was in an offside position and clearly distracting Boro keeper Brad Jones. It meant that Boro’s late leveller should, in Right Result terms, have been a crucial winner. It would certainly have eased many of the relegation worries on Teesside as the RR table has seen them zoom up to 13th position and fully seven points clear of the bottom three.

Of course, the result of the weekend was Liverpool’s emphatic win at Manchester United. Along with Manchester City’s defeat at Stamford Bridge, it means Chelsea are the new Right Result league leaders.
