    Another big test passed by Arsenal but Man City are stirring

    Another big test passed by Arsenal but Man City are stirring

    Jimbo, Daniel Storey, Jon Mackenzie and Jay Harris cast their eyes over an intriguing and potentially pivotal Premier League weekend.

    Arsenal overcome Man United in dramatic fashion with Nketiah proving a brilliant alternative to Jesus and the inverted Zinchenko proving hugely influential.

    Man City are back in the goals though with universal acclaim for Erling Haaland and Rico Lewis. Can they chase the Gunners down in the title race?

    Some drab 0-0s across the matchday, including at Anfield but Mykhailo Mudryk’s exciting cameo for Chelsea shows why they might not need a striker.

    Plus Mitoma, Gnonto and why Sean Dyche would keep Everton up.

    Produced by Charlie Jones.

    • PART 1a: Arsenal 3-2 Man United (03.00)

    Leaders Arsenal host Man United in a throwback to what the fixture used to be. The Gunners are celebrating the absence of the suspended Casemiro. Will De Gea be the key man at the Emirates?

    Jurgen Klopp takes charge of his 1000th game in management (or does he?) against a Chelsea side who one of our panel thinks are about to take the Premier League by storm.

    It’s been another turbulent week at Everton with the fans and the board at odds over how things have been reported. The Athletic’s Greg O’Keeffe explains more.

    All that plus an FA Cup midweek headlined by Gnonto’s wonder goal and Neil Etheridge’s triple save.

    Also Trossard is Arsenal-bound, Olise is an enigma and Ward-Prowse is saving us from the aliens.

    Napoli race clear but could we see title races in France & Germany?

    Jimbo, James Horncastle, Raphael Honigstein, Alvaro Romeo and Julien Laurens are back to review all the Euro action.

    PSG are beaten for the second away game in a row by their bogey team Rennes, allowing Lens to close the gap on the leaders to just 3 points.

    Napoli are 9 points clear after thrashing Juventus 5-1 as a first Serie A title for Spalletti surely beckons. Plus are Gasperini’s Atalanta back after putting 8 past Salernitana?

    Xavi secures silverware with the Spanish Super Cup, while Real Sociedad win the Basque derby, with Imanol Alguacil proving to be another great Basque manager.

    The Bundesliga returns on Friday with Leipzig looking to upset a Neuer-less Bayern.
