Rank #4: Is Emery's time up at Arsenal?

Podcast cover
Read more

John Cross of the Daily Mirror and Tony Hodson of The Coaches' Voice join Mike Calvin to cast their eye over the weekend of football. Is it Granit Xhaka, the fans or Unai Emery, who should take the blame for what happened at Emirates Stadium on Saturday? On the opposite side of the spectrum, Chelsea are flying under Frank Lampard. Should Arsenal follow the Blues' example and appoint a legendary player at the helm?


Liverpool continue to impress, but with Mo Salah being substituted with an ankle injury, do the Reds have the squad to cover? Their title rivals Manchester City kept up the pace with Raheem Sterling continuing his fine form...form which our team believe could take him to the Ballon d'Or.
