Friday Football Social: Jose's secret ingredient and is the return of fans fair?
Mark Schwarzer joins Darren and JJ to discuss whether winning the title at Spurs would be Jose Mourinho's greatest achievement. Ahead of the weekend action we ask if Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek are worthy of places in Manchester United’s starting line-up and does Ole Gunnar Solskjaer need to be braver with his formation? Does it already look a long way back for whoever loses when Sheffield United take on West Brom? And is it fair that only half of Premier League clubs are able to welcome back fans back when lockdown ends?

Remembering Diego Maradona
In this special episode of the Football Daily podcast Mark Chapman is joined by correspondent John Murray and South American football expert Tim Vickery to pay tribute to football legend Diego Maradona, who has died at the age of 60.
Maradona - arguably the greatest player football has ever seen - had a spectacular career: he captained Argentina to victory at the 1986 World Cup, and scoring both the infamous 'Hand of God' goal and the much-lauded solo second against England in their quarter-final.
He spent much of his club career at Napoli, winning two Serie A titles, the Coppa Italia and UEFA Cup with the Italian side. He had previously played for Barcelona, Boca Juniors and Argentinos Juniors.
We hear from Gary Lineker, Pep Guardiola, Ossie Ardiles, and Paul Elliott - all paying tribute to the Argentine superstar.

Dion tells us why he thinks Bruno Fernandes has made such an impact for Manchester United since joining the club in January as he scored two in their 4-1 win over Istanbul Basaksehir.
