We are looking at a couple of crucial days in the Premier League title race, with Manchester City moving eight points ahead at the top after their win and losing points to Chelsea and Liverpool. Is there any chance that Pep Guardiola’s team will let it slip from here?

In the second part, we look at the sudden and no doubt more interesting race for the top four, as West Ham claim an important victory at Watford, while Manchester United and Tottenham only pick up draws. We also discuss Newcastle’s potential January spending and whether Dean Smith has made a mistake in joining unhappy Norwich City.

Finally, we look at what the Premier League can do about the postponed matches and ask whether the Africa Cup of Nations is not respected by the media and leaders in Europe.
