Supreme Salah, City flat in front of fans and Derby’s defiance

Update: 2021-09-182


Ben Haines is joined by former Brighton and Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray and Premier League presenter Nubaid Haroon to discuss the big talking points from Saturday’s action.

Liverpool are top of the league after beating Crystal Palace. The boys talk about how Mohamed Salah has improved his overall game this season and the impact having fans back at Anfield is having on Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Over 53,000 fans were at the Etihad to watch Manchester City have just one shot on target in a goalless draw with Southampton. Did Pep’s comments about wanting more supporters to come to the Etihad invite extra pressure on his players? And with Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United all looking strong this season, how costly will those dropped points be if they’re to defend their Premier League title?

On Sunday, injury-hit Tottenham face a Chelsea team that has conceded just one goal in the league this season. Glenn offers his expertise on how best to deal with the threat of Romelu Lukaku.

Rafa Benitez suffered his first defeat as Everton manager as they were beaten 3-0 by Aston Villa. Glenn and Nubaid debate Rafa’s style of play and what constitutes “entertaining football.” And they reflect on the impact Leon Bailey had, with the Villa winger coming on as a substitute, scoring a goal and grabbing an assist before being brought back off the pitch, in a remarkable 21 minute debut.

Derby County beat Stoke a day after announcing that the club will go into administration. Aaron Paul from the 72+ podcast joins us to talk about what points deductions they could face and we hear from Wayne Rooney on his concerns for everyone involved at Pride Park.

Elsewhere in the East Midlands, Nottingham Forest began life without Chris Hughton with victory over Huddersfield for their first win of the season. Aaron gives us the latest on their plans to appoint Steve Cooper as Hughton’s replacement and Glenn shares his thoughts on what the future holds for his former team.
