Arsenal v Spurs analysis, dives, Bakery Jatta and more – Football Weekly

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We take a look back at the weekend of football just gone, starting with the north London derby, as Arsenal and Spurs played out a 2-2 draw in which both impressed and underwhelmed in equal measure.

Chelsea and Manchester United both drew winnable games, calling into question the state of the top six beyond the top two, as Manchester City and Liverpool racked up easy goal difference-boosting wins.

We round up the rest of the Premier League, including Jack Grealish’s not-a-dive, Everton’s exciting win over Wolves and Bournemouth’s dangerously high line, before looking to the Football League, Scotland and the latest in the women’s internationals.

Sid Lowe joins us on the line from Spain to talk two-goal, two-card Gareth Bale, Nicky Bandini gives us the latest from Serie A as Napoli lose 4-3, having won 4-3 last weekend, and we finish with some write-in questions.
