More Mourinho melodrama & the Merseyside midfield matchup

Gab Marcotti and Natalie Sawyer are joined by Henry Winter and Gary Jacob ahead of a huge weekend of Premier League action.


Tottenham have beaten Chelsea and Inter Milan this week and the panel praise Pochettino for not playing the percentages. Next up is the North London derby. The battle between Ozil and Eriksen could be crucial but how much longer will those players be at their respective clubs?


Looking ahead to the Merseyside derby, and with Liverpool losing away in the Champions League again, do they lack a dominant figure in midfield? And can Sigurdsson seize control on Sunday for Everton?

Plus it’s another week of Mourinho behaving erratically. No Pogba, Lukaku or Sanchez selected for the Champions League clash with Young Boys. Should United have done their research before signing Sanchez? Should Mourinho have been more careful in his reaction to Rashford? And is he fuelling the negativity around the club?
