Also, as part of our Premier League Review: Matchday 9 episode, the pair take a look at "The Good, The Bad and The Quirky" from the weekend's action at both the top and the bottom of the table with rumours swirling of Andoni Iraola's departure from strugglers Bournemouth.

    Premier League Review: Matchday 7

    Just to be clear, in our Premier League Review: Matchday 7 on "The Data Day", there will be very limited talk about VAR. But we do take a closer look at the number of red cards that have been handed out in the competition so far, and why it is having an impact on the table.



    We also take a look at "The Good, The Bad and The Quirky" from the weekend's action with Matt Furniss and Ryan Benson joining Graham Bell for our Premier League Review: Matchday 7. Whether it's lauding over Aston Villa and Wolves or lamenting Manchester United's form, we dive into the key data stories.



    And, of course, where else do we end but with the Pauline Quirke Quiz. Can Graham finally record a victory against the podcast debutant?
