We start at the Etihad Stadium as Leeds become the first promoted team in 13 years to win away at a team that sits top of the Premier League. What level of credit does Bielsa deserve for the performances we’ve seen by Leeds this year?

We then move on to the battle for the Champions League as Manchester United, West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool all win to further their chances. Could Leicester pay a heavy price after three of their key players missed the defeat at the London Stadium following a Covid-19 related breach?

Finally, there’s time to discuss Newcastle’s important win, Phil Brown’s sabbatical, headbutts and whether ‘xG’ counts as a word in scrabble.
