There is great history in Premier League games, many of them come through from old rivalries: born before the premier league was even a glint in our English eyes. So when the Uniteds meet: Manchester and Newcastle it is a special occasion because early offerings of the 90s games were hot. Keegan, Batty, Faustino. Now Newcastle are a force again in the league and trips to SJP or SDA are difficult again. Relegation benefitted the Geordies and now they are looking at a top four finish, but to finish in the top four you need to prove your worth there. That starts with impressive performances against the other fantastic four prospects.

There is a review of the UCL and all four sides in the competition: with positive results for all. How beneficial is playing the a european competion? There are also reviews for the rest of the weekend’s games.

We look at foul stats in the league as Morgan guides us through the numbers. Luis Suarez started the debate and he’ll end it too. What do you think of fouls and reputations? Let the podcast know:
