The Ramble: Late winners from Liverpool and Man City, a big win for Newcastle, and more beige gruel for Man United fans

The weekend’s football looked like it was going to be full of surprises until it wasn’t, as Man City and Liverpool kept up their intriguing ding dong, followed by some mind games from Pep, while plucky Man United tried their best against Bournemouth but continued to struggle at this level. 

Andy Carroll got onto the pitch though, and in a Newcastle win! So that was nice.
