If Only City Had a Centre Forward

Hugh Woozencroft is joined by Gregor Robertson, Alyson Rudd and Paul Hirst.


Liverpool and Manchester City played a cagey first half, followed by a wild second at Anfield. Would City have taken all three points had they bought a Premier League quality striker in the summer? (00:00)


Everton took a point from Manchester United, Andros Townsend mimicked Ronaldo’s celebration (but ended up with his shirt) and Demarai Gray once again looked impressive. Has Rafa finally got them playing as a team? (25:24)


Since winning the FA Cup in May, Leicester City have been less than impressive - again dropping points at the weekend. What’s gone wrong at the King Power and is their success to blame? (35:33)


Crystal Palace have a new lease of life under Patrick Vieira. How far can they go with their new, fearless style of play? (42:23)


Watford have parted company with yet another manager as Xisco departs - but is their hire and fire method actually working? (47:41)
