Episode 1454: City Closing In, Misery Mini-League, McDevitt v Bielsa
Marcelo Bielsa ordered his Leeds team to concede an equaliser against Aston Villa for reasons of sportsmanship, but at least two people aren’t impressed by his act of integrity: Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder, and our own Eoin McDevitt.
The title race inched remorselessly towards what looks an inevitable conclusion with City’s victory at Burnley, but Leicester’s form means Liverpool still have hope.
We discuss the high-stakes comedy of the top-four mini-league, with Arsenal and Spurs suffering bad defeats and Manchester United’s good start against Chelsea undone by another baffling De Gea error.
123 matches – three errors that led to goals.
Last four matches – three errors that led to goals.

If “Spurs/Man City, Part 3” is only as good as “The Godfather Part 3”, will that suffice? Yes, says Eoin… No, says Murph. @JackPittBrooke talks to us about the final episode in the trilogy that could define Guardiola’s time in charge https://t.co/frhC12PysJ pic.twitter.com/7iFQHq5XS0
