Latest episode: Where next for Ole and Man Utd?
In the latest edition of the Essential Football Podcast, we look back at all the action from another busy weekend in the Premier League,
Alice Piper is joined by Sky Sports features editor Peter Smith and senior football journalist Gerard Brand to discuss the fallout from Old Trafford following Manchester United’s 5-0 thrashing at the hands of arch-rivals Liverpool.
The duo ask where now for United and their under-siege manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as well as turning their attention to whether the “best player in the world”, Mo Salah, will stay at Liverpool.
In Part Two, Everton’s capitulation against Watford is also examined along with what it means for Rafa Benitez’s start on Merseyside. However, at the same time, has the win also given Watford and new boss Claudio Ranieri hope now of beating the drop?
And finally in this section, the duo wonder if there has been a changing of the guard after West Ham saw off Spurs on Super Sunday?
Then in Part Three, the Friday Night Football clash involving Arsenal and Aston Villa is under discussion and in particular, where did it all go right for the Gunners and wrong for Villa?
And the podcast ends with Phil Foden, Man City and Bernardo Silva all under the spotlight, while Newcastle, Burnley, Chelsea, Norwich and Youri Tielemans’s right foot also get dissected – so make sure you all tune in!
