Will Liverpool & Man City’s Champions League results impact the title race? | The relegation battle continues | Fulham, Bournemouth assessed after promotion confirmed
In the latest episode of the Essential Football Podcast, Ron Walker is joined by Sky Sports features writer Nick Wright, Sky Sports News reporter Ben Ransom and Sky Sports EFL expert Dan Long to discuss all the talking points ahead of another busy weekend of football.
PART ONE | The panel reflect on differing Champions League fortunes for Liverpool and Manchester City in midweek. Liverpool overcame a bit of a scare to power past Villarreal, while Real Madrid produced an epic comeback to knock out Pep Guardiola’s side. Will those results have any impact on the Premier League title race as Jurgen Klopp’s side prepare to face Tottenham and City host Newcastle?
PART TWO | Burnley’s turnaround, Cristiano Ronaldo’s incredible goal-scoring form, Everton’s poor away record, Arsenal’s chase for the Champions League and Leeds’ relegation concerns are also up for discussion as we continue to look ahead at the weekend’s action in the top flight.
PART THREE | Finally, Dan Long looks at what Fulham and Bournemouth can bring to the Premier League after winning promotion back to the top flight. With the final day of the regular Championship season this weekend, who will join Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield in the play-offs and who will eventually seal promotion at Wembley?
All that, and much, much more!
