Arsenal’s derby delight and Guardiola outsmarts Tuchel – Football Weekly

Rate, review, share on Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, Audioboom, Mixcloud, Acast and Stitcher, and join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We start with the north London derby, as Arsenal’s incredible first-half display sank a woeful Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates. Were we too quick to judge Mikel Arteta’s team? Or can they not be properly assessed against such a lacklustre Spurs side?

Then we review Manchester United’s home defeat to Aston Villa, as Bruno Fernandes writes an essay to explain why he dared to miss a penalty in stoppage time. We also discuss Manchester City’s impressive win at Stamford Bridge, and the game of the weekend between Brentford and Liverpool.

Finally, we ask if there’s a reason why a quarter of the teams in the league still haven’t got a win, marvel at the assassin-like qualities of Ipswich’s Macauley Bonne and read a lovely email from one of our listeners, Chris.

Back on Wednesday.
