Max Rushden is joined by Nicky Bandini, Lars Sivertsen, Philippe Auclair and Sid Lowe to discuss the mid-week round of Premier League fixtures, plus updates from Serie A, La Liga and Ligue Un.

On the podcast today; Leicester City go top after a convincing win over Frank Lampard’s Chelsea side. We discuss whether Leicester are genuine title contenders and if Frank Lampard needs to accept more of the blame for the poor performances of his side. Elsewhere in the Premier League Arsenal beat Newcastle comfortably and West Ham have a greater points tally at the mid-point of a season than ever before.

In Italy, Inter beat Juventus and Milan’s top goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic continues to roll back the years, while in Spain Athletic Bilbao win the Super Cup and Atletico Madrid appeal Kieran Trippier’s ban.

Plus strange goings on in Ligue Un and an extraordinary goal for Newport County’s goalkeeper Tom King.
