Rating Ramsey and the damage done to the United brand
Gab Marcotti and Natalie Sawyer are back with Oliver Kay and James Gheerbrant as the Premier League tightens up at the top.
The two title favourites draw 0-0 at Anfield with Riyad Mahrez missing a late penalty. Did Manchester City show a solidity in midfield that will serve them well in big games? Or are Liverpool’s front 3 of Salah, Mane and Firmino running out of steam?
In Jose Mourinho’s words, he’s been the victim of a manhunting, with reports suggesting he was set to be sacked last weekend. Has the board at Old Trafford prioritised the brand over the football? And what damage is being done to that brand by the chaos on and off the pitch?
Arsenal are the form team in the country right now after thrashing Fulham at Craven Cottage. Aaron Ramsey scores a contender for goal of the season but is he worth the franchise player money that the Gunners are apparently unwilling to pay him?
Plus Neil Warnock's very high threshold for a red card offence. And it’s a bad week for Bayern but a happy one for Hurst at Ipswich.
