The wayward Woodward and the absent Aubameyang

Gab Marcotti is joined by Gary Jacob and Paul Hirst after a Premier League weekend that asks a lot of questions. Manchester United’s defeat at Brighton raises issues over United’s defence. The panel discuss how Ed Woodward and Jose Mourinho can’t agree on certain players in the squad and the effect that has on their relationship.

We saw 25 minutes of Sarri-ball during a bonkers victory for Chelsea over Arsenal. Will Sarri stick with a system that forces N’Golo Kante to neglect his defensive responsibilities? And on the Arsenal side of things, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a big-name player but is he a big-game player? Plus what does Unai Emery do with the turgid Mesut Ozil?

Martyn Ziegler speaks to us about how far we are from VAR in the Premier League and reveals why the 39th game might not be as far away as we think.

And even though Natalie Sawyer is on holiday, there are still bragging rights up for grabs. Who was victorious in the first week of match predictions? Gab or Natalie?
