Ben Haines is joined by former Hull City midfielder Alex Bruce and North East correspondent for The Telegraph Luke Edwards to look back on Saturday’s action.
We saw six penalties in four games, which earned Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea crucial wins and points in the title race. Man United also grabbed a winner from the penalty spot – but were they all a bit soft? The guys debate the role of VAR and whether or not the standard of officiating needs to improve.
Mikel Arteta dropped Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from the Arsenal squad for “a disciplinary breach” and Arsenal went on to win comfortably against Southampton. The right decision from the manager? Harry Symeou from ‘Chronicles of a Gooner’ joins the pod to give his thoughts.
And ahead of Leicester v Newcastle we ask if it is worrying times for Brendan Rodgers, as his side sit in 12th. At this stage of the last two seasons – they were second.
Also, Alex gives us an update on his dad and whether he’s itching to get back into management. Plus the guys reveal their approach to Christmas shopping.
