Brad All Over

Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Brad Friedel earned himself a place in the Team of the Week in the Actim Index, the official player ratings system of the Barclays Premier League. Friedel was the top-ranked keeper after scoring 18 points in his side`s 1-0 win at Portsmouth.

It helped lift him two places to 27th overall, making him the third-ranked goalkeeper so far this season behind Liverpool`s Jose Reina (25th position) and Pompey`s David James (26th).

The trio are separated by just eight points in the race to be the Index`s number one stopper.

Roque Santa Cruz remains Rovers` highest-placed player, the striker earned 32 points at Fratton Park to take his overall total to 602 points, becoming the fifth player to break the 600-point barrier.

Analysis of all Premier League games is taking place throughout the season and the players in the Actim Index Team of the Week are:

It must have been a quiet week for keepers! I didn't think we asked BF to do that much?

Bradders should be in this team EVERY week, he MUST have made it for his performance against Manure the week before?!?!

You might not had won if Jamo was playing.

He kept a clean sheet against pompey, was superb against Man U - has been superb all season (as he alwya is). I would argue that Brad is the most consistent player in the league.
