Which teams are out of the Champions League running following the weekend? Could Jesse Lingard be in the running for player of the season? Why do Manchester United need to go behind to pull out performances like the second half against Spurs? (00:00)

It’s not VAR under the microscope, but the actual human decisions using the technology. James Tarkowski’s challenge against Newcastle causes a difference of opinions between our panel and how does that go unpunished while Spurs had a goal chalked off against Manchester United? (17:32)
