Despite a top of the table that’s providing little reason for conversation, myself, Kartik Krishnaiyer and Laurence McKenna have plenty to discuss on this edition of the EPL Talk Podcast. In the hours before the show went to tape, Stan Kroenke’s bid for controlling interest in Arsenal was reported. We spend the first segment of the show discussing the potential implications of the American’s acquisition of the storied North London club.
Then we consider Sunderland’s sink, Hodgson’s Baggies revival, and all the stories in and around an increasingly dynamic relegation battle. Finally, we look back to the top of the table, but only to get some context on Tuesday’s match at Old Trafford: Chelsea going to Manchester to take on United in Champions League.
