Bielsa back in the good books while Spurs squad enter breaking point

Natalie Sawyer and Gab Marcotti are joined by James Gheerbrant and Paul Hirst after a weekend of unique talking points in the world of football.

Manchester City clear another hurdle in the title race. With Pep Guardiola’s men now having taken 192 points in almost 2 seasons in the Premier League, can we expect this trend to continue. And is Burnley’s style of play inhibiting Sean Dyche’s chances of employment at a bigger club?

Natalie was at Leeds to witness extraordinary scenes at Elland Road in the Championship. Leeds score with Villa having stopped playing, then allow Villa to score an equaliser. What happened? Why did it happen? Did Marcelo Bielsa do the right thing? And would he have done it if it wasn’t for Spygate?

Plus we look ahead to the Champions League semi-finals? Can Tottenham patch together a team capable of beating Ajax? And are we underestimating the chances of Barcelona’s defence up against Liverpool’s attack?

Elsewhere there are meltdowns for PSG and Dortmund, as we try to get Wilder.
