The brightest thing about Liverpool, Spurs repeat title trend… Five things we learnt on the weekend

We’re in the wilderness now, folks. Domestic football takes it’s scheduled breather leaving us all to look forward to international action, with England hosting Scotland in a World Cup qualifier before Gareth Southgate’s biggest, and potentially last, test against Spain.

But before we venture down this route, let’s take a look back at a pulsating weekend of Premier League action, in which the title race took another twist. Indeed, Liverpool benefitted most from the past few days, with their massive 6-1 home beating of Watford enough to move them above Manchester City and Arsenal, while also putting Chelsea’s 5-0 battering of Everton somewhat into context. Things certainly look bright on Merseyside, but that may be down to the almost nuclear glow of Roberto Firmino’s teeth!

Elsewhere, Spurs showed off their title credentials… sort of. The Londoners drew with bitter rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, making it 11 games unbeaten since the start of the season, a feat they last managed in 1960/61, when they won the league!

Manchester United also threw up a much-needed win with Wayne Rooney impressive, while another ageing striker with Old Trafford connections also shone…

We have our very own @RyanJayBailey in the house to run through some of the not so obvious talking points.
