Friday Show: Arteta On The Chopping Block?

Neil Atkinson hosts Phil Blundell, Philippa Smallwood, Manchester United fan Teza Simukulwa and Arsenal fan Jim Johnson on our Premier League preview show…

“The league table feels like it’s ready to be weirdly blown apart. All the way through we’ve been saying how it’s very close, it’s very congested – but you look at this weekend’s games and there’s every chance it opens up. This weekend you’ve got Leicester and Spurs, Southampton and City, Chelsea and West Ham – they’re all top 8 and they’re all playing each other.” – Neil Atkinson

“With the teams that are still in the European competitions, with all the games that are being compacted – there’s less time for recovery. We’ve seen managers like Klopp and Solskjær complaining because they’re picking up a lot of injuries, because of the other managers in the league that didn’t opt to have five substitutes. It’s a bit difficult for quite a lot of teams to plan for their next game realistically they have to play their strongest XI game by game, and then make small tweeks as the games come along.”Teza Simukulwa
