Joe Devine, JJ Bull and Jon Mackenzie are here to talk about a huge weekend of football in the Premier League

Events in London and Manchester are the first focus – we start with league leaders Arsenal. Is the title theirs to lose now? The Gunners beat North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. For Spurs, the defeat raises many questions about where they go next

Moving on to Manchester, a win for United over City continued the Erik ten Hag revolution for the Red Devils. But are they in the title mix now too?

Liverpool lost again, this time against a brilliant Brighton who have taken to De Zerbi’s methods like a seagull to a bag of chips.

We also explore the Premier League’s relegation zone, where at least eight teams are in the mix to find themselves in trouble. But who will drop out by season’s end?

Finally, a word or two is said about Napoli, who sit imperiously atop Serie A with a nine point lead having just put five past Juventus.

The Tifo Football Podcast is produced by Steve Hankey.
