This week on the podcast, Dan Burke is joined in the studio by podcast debutants Alex Mott and Francesco Porzio.

Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea suffered their second humbling defeat on the bounce on Monday evening. Is this the end of Antonio Conte and if so, who should Roman Abramovich be looking to replace him with?

Elsewhere in England, there was an incredible game of football at Anfield on Sunday, but were the two very contentious refereeing decisions the most compelling argument for video technology yet?

There’s also the small matter of the North London derby to look forward to at Wembley this weekend. Harry Kane v Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – who will prevail?

Over in Italy, there’s a proper title race going on. Can Napoli break Juve’s Scudetto hegemony and what’s going wrong at the two Milan giants?

And with all that nonsense out of the way, it’s time to look ahead to the glorious return of the Champions League. Who will make it through to the last eight and who, if anyone, could be the team to prise the trophy from Real Madrid’s cold, dead hands?
