Episode 1372: Sarri’s Calm Rant, Andy Robertson Sells His Soul, The Solskjaer Backstop
It seems a little early for the Premier League run-in jitters, but Liverpool were made to sweat for their 4-3 win over Crystal Palace. Mo Salah is the fall-guy, but why has everyone conveniently forgotten about Andy Robertson’s handball in the build-up to what turned out to be the winning goal?
James Horncastle joins us to discuss Maurizio Sarri, who launched the calmest ever verbal broadside against his own players after their 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on Saturday evening. Of the 3 rats that downed Mourinho’s sinking ship, only 1 remains, but there are still plenty of problems for him to contend with, including the plodding Jorginho, who has failed thus far to impress many, including Rio Ferdinand.

Is David Silva the best player in the history of the Premier League?
Or does he even make it into the top 100 Premier League players of all time?
