  1. Goodbye

    Jurgen Klopp

    Right that's me done, thanks for joining me this morning.

    Before I get going it's probably only right that I point you in the direction of some of our top content to keep you entertained.

    Ta-ra and see you all soon.

  2. Emery/Wenger compared


    Those stats make for grim reading.

    Emery Arsenal record
  3. 'Emery reaching a critical phase'

    Arsenal 2-2 Crystal Palace


    Our chief football writer Phil McNulty has also picked the bones out of Arsenal's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace.

    Phil reckons that manager Unai Emery is reaching a critical phase of his reign at Arsenal after being hired to cure the ills of the Arsene Wenger tenure, in which the great man let things drift in the context of chasing a Premier League title and too many familiar faults reappeared on a regular basis.

    He is not holding back. Just have read of this.

  4. Analysis: How Reds found a way to win - again


    Meanwhile Peter Crouch and Ian Wright have been running through positional changes, tactical tweaks and all the other analysis from Liverpool's 2-1 win over Tottenham.

    Enjoy that here.

  5. 'We have missed Anthony'

    Manchester United

    Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has been talking up forward Anthony Martial who was on the scoresheet as his team moved up to seventh in the Premier League with a win at Norwich.

    United have won around 80% of their league games under Solskjær when the France forward has started compared to around 30% when he hasn't.

  6. VAR to the fore

    Just a recap on the main talking points today, and you've guessed it. VAR is right up there after it awarded four penalties and a red card over the weekend.

    In the first nine rounds of Premier League games - some 90 games - not a single penalty or red card was given by the video assistant referee.

    This piece pretty much sums everything up. And yes there are quite a few complaints about the system.

  7. 'Did you get more goals for it?'

    Non-stop banter in the Match of the Day 2 studio.

    Ian Wright is not having 'perfect hat-tricks' though is he.

  8. BreakingMorecambe boss Bentley quits

    Jim Bentley

    Some news coming in from League Two....

    Jim Bentley - the longest-serving manager in England's top four divisions - has resigned as manager of League Two club Morecambe.

    BBC Radio Lancashire reports he is set to take charge of National League side AFC Fylde.

    Bentley, 43, has been Morecambe boss since May 2011, having previously spent nine years with the club as a player.

    It is understood the former centre-back will drop a division to join Fylde, who sacked Dave Challinor on 12 October. You can read that story here.

  9. Headers, volleys & rockets

    Headers, volleys and a couple of absolute screamers.

    These four great goals from Sunday's Women's Super League fixtures, including Ji So-Yun's brilliant long-range strike to help Chelsea move top of the table are well worth a look.

  10. United prepared to meet Dortmund's Sancho demand?

    According to the Mirror Manchester United are prepared to meet Borussia Dortmund's demands as they attempt to sign England forward Jadon Sancho from the Bundesliga club, who want at least £100m for the 19-year-old.

    It's all in the gossip if you fancy a ganders.

    Ben: VAR has ruined top level football as a spectacle. I'm having far more fun enjoying lower level and non league football. It's all about moments of joy, and they're being stripped from the game.

  12. 'I thought he was unlucky'

    Newcastle 1-1 Wolves

    Newcastle United

    Sean Longstaff

    Newcastle ended their 1-1 draw with Wolves with 10 men with midfielder Sean Longstaff was sent off late on for a challenge on Ruben Neves.

    I'll be honest having watched it back a few times I thought he was a touch unfortunate.

    As did his manager Steve Bruce, who suggested that Ruben Neves' reaction had played it's part in Longstaff's dismissal.

    "I thought he was unlucky," Bruce said.

    "I think he has played the ball and he isn't in control of his foot but where is his foot supposed to go? When players roll around like that afterwards I'm always a bit dubious."

  13. Post update

    Newcastle 1-1 Wolves



    While we are in the mid reaches of the Premier League table, probably worth mentioning that Wolves are now on the same points as Tottenham, after a close-range finish from Jonny helped earn a battling point against Newcastle.

    Nuno Espirito Santo's side, had a pretty tough start to the new campaign but they looked in good nick on Sunday at St James' Park.

    You can read the report on that one here.

  14. 'Spurs deserved more'

    Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has claimed he has stayed "calm and relaxed" over the last week.

    But Sunday's defeat at Liverpool leaves Spurs in 11th place in the Premier League after four defeats.

    And a defeat at Everton in their next outing may well test his demeanour.

    Dave: VAR has been operational in other countries for a while - how do they communicate it to the fans? Agree it should be like rugby in that way i.e. on screens and ref explanation audible, but not once has the ref gone to a pitch side monitor. Unlike in the world cups. He makes the final decision, not the TV 'ref'. I like it, and it will settle down, but work needed.

  16. Garth Crooks' team of the week

    Garth Crooks has been doing his thing again with his team of the week? But who has made the cut and who would you pick?

    I've thrown together my XI below.

    But you can see who Garth has selected and pick your own side here.

    Tony: The most obvious improvement that could be made with VAR is to introduce a cricket/tennis style system where managers/captains are allowed two appeals per game.

    Laurence: VAR needs to be scrapped. Bring back the human error of the referee except for goal line technology

  19. How 'relentless' Reds found a way to win (again)

    Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham


    Mohamed Salah

    This is good. Very good. Especially if you like touch maps and fiddly graphics.

    Ian Wright and Peter Crouch dissect how Premier League leaders Liverpool fought back from a goal down to beat Tottenham in a pulsating match at Anfield on Sunday.

    Harry Kane gave Spurs the lead after only 48 seconds but Jordan Henderson levelled at the start of the second half and Mohamed Salah's late penalty gave Jurgen Klopp's side a vital victory.

    Anyway here's their analysis in full.
