Tom Clarke is back and joined by Monday regulars Alyson Rudd, Tom Roddy and Gregor Robertson. After paying tribute to the late great Sir Bobby Charlton they look back on a fantastic weekend of football.

Villa are flying high and don’t look like stopping. City and arsenal are up there without really playing well. Someone who is playing well is Harry Maguire, a man of the match performance against Sheffield united, but a test awaits next week against City and Haaland.

Finally revenge for Gary O’Neil and is Ivan Tony set to leave Brentford.


1’ Sir Bobby tributes


4’ Villa, title contenders? Amazing home record.

10’ Emery getting the best out of players already at the club. Ollie Watkins the best example.

14’ Villa playing style. Big physical side, with pace.

City and United

21’ back on track, flying? Not so much according to Gregor. Still time to adjust to losing key players.

24’ Has Guardiola lost some control over in’s and out’s

26’ Maguire back to his best?

27’ United winning but look at who is scoring.

32’ Pace of the game has increased, that has affected Maguire.

Arsenal Chelsea

35’ Positivity for Chelsea. But are they getting an easy ride, should fans be more frustrated at results.

38’ Chelsea missing four starters, played good football, the tide is turning.

40’ Formation unusual, Poch optimistic.

45’ Arsenal, gifted a route back into the game. But they found a way.

Wolves Bournemouth

48’ Iraola running out of time. Lots of individual mistakes but he needs a win.

50’ Need to re asses their style. High press needs to be backed up.

52’ Wolves looking great. O’Neil deserves huge credit. Neto and Cunha key


56’ Were struggling but first home win of the season

58’ Faith in Thomas Frank, despite the rough start. Henry injury, Toney out…they’ll get better.

60’ Looks like Tony will leave Brentford in Jan, possibly Arsenal.
