While superstars like Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes owned this weekend's Premier League action, the FPL narrative belongs to new January transfers like Aston Villa's Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Digne. Yeah, Chris Wood, too . . . sure. So, what do actually make of the upcoming fantasy prospects for these new signings? Is one performance enough to cement our faith? We also pick the bones of GW22 and it's mess of doubles, postponements, and hidden gems—like the weirdly under-the-fantasy-radar Andy Robertson. Then it's all eyes on GW23 and our transfer and captaincy plans, including a potential wildcard. Hail Cheaters! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices
Feargal Brennan, Jack Gaughan and Rob Blanchette review another busy weekend of Premier League action with eight games across the last 48 hours. Manchester City extended their lead at the top to eight points with a Kevin De Bruyne inspired 1-0 win over Chelsea, as Phillippe Coutinho rolled back the years to secure a 2-2 debut draw against Manchester United. The team also react to Everton's decision to sack Rafa Benitez, after defeat Norwich, as Liverpool keep alive their own title hopes with a 3-0 Anfield win over Brentford. Leeds United snapped up a key win at West Ham, Wolves cruised past Southampton, as Watford hold Newcastle and Brighton and Crystal Palace battle out a 1-1 AMEX stalemate.
Manchester City are 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table after a fine win over Chelsea. Kevin De Bruyne, who was brilliant throughout, scored the winner, a superb curling effort that gave Kepa no chance. It was another solid display, with City restricting Chelsea to a single shot on target.Liverpool could leapfrog Chelsea into second place and close the gap to 11 points when they host Brentford on Sunday. That one kicks off at 14:00 (UK). Pep Guardiola has now amassed 499 Premier League points as City manager and Ederson has kept a clean sheet in exactly half the games he's played in the competition making him the only goalkeeper with 100+ appearances to do so.After the game, we heard from Pep Guardiola and Kevin De Bruyne – and joining us in the Matchday Live studio were Shaun Goater and David James.

Manchester City 7-0 Leeds United. It was one of the most dazzling performances of the season from the reigning champions and it was a pleasure to watch - City hit fifth gear and were unstoppable. Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Kevin De Bruyne (2), Riyad Mahrez, John Stones and Nathan Ake all scored, as we moved four points clear at the top if the table. Foden's strike to open the scoring was our 500th Premier League goal since Pep Guardiola took charge in the summer of 2016. It's a remarkable record, with the 500 goals coming in just 207 matches – an average of 2.4 goals per game. That means he is the quickest manager to reach 500 in the competition's history. Jurgen Klopp, who sits second on the list, took charge of 234 Premier League matches before his Liverpool side made it to 500, with Alex Ferguson in third having seen his Manchester United side strike 500 times in his opening 265 games. After the game we heard from De Bruyne and Guardiola – and joining us in the Matchday Live studio were Shaun Goater and Shaun wright Phillips.

Why football moved away from the number 10 role? The attacking playmakers are sometimes called the "number 10" of the team, as they often wear the number 10 jersey. The attacking midfield playmaker will sit in a free role between the midfield and the forwards, either in the centre of the pitch or on either flank. Kevin De Bruyne (born 28 June 1991) is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the Belgium national team. De Bruyne is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation and the world.

Understanding Kevin De Bruyne position in Manchester City Kevin De Bruyne is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the Belgium national team. De Bruyne is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation and he has often been described as a "complete footballer" In Italian football, the term mezzala (literally "half-winger" in Italian) is used to describe the position of the one or two central midfielders who play on either side of a holding midfielder and/or playmaker. The term was initially applied to the role of an inside forward in the WM and Metodo formations in Italian, but later described a specific type of central midfielder. The mezzala is often a quick and hard-working attack-minded midfielder, with good skills and noted offensive capabilities, as well as a tendency to make overlapping attacking runs, but also a player who participates in the defensive aspect of the game, and who can give width to a team by drifting out wide; as such, the term can be applied to several different roles. In English, the term has come to be seen as a variant of the box-to-box midfielder role.

Kevin De Bruyne in pain over the football calendar for Manchester City and Belgium; What is driving this painful outcome for players? Kevin De Bruyne is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Manchester City and the Belgium national team. De Bruyne is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world and he has often been described as a "complete footballer" Oxymorphone is a highly potent opioid analgesic indicated for treatment of severe pain. Pain relief after injection begins after about 5–10 minutes, after oral administration it begins after about 30 minutes, and lasts about 3–4 hours for immediate-release tablets and 12 hours for extended-release tablets.

It was a genuine Premier League classic. City ended one of the hardest weeks in the club's history with a 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Anfield. It was pulsating. Phil Foden was the standout performer - he is one of the best young players in European football. In this episode of the Man City Podcast, we look back at the game and hear the thoughts of Pep Guardiola, Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Joleon Lescott and David James.

When Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, admitted that he didn't know how he was going to stop Paris Saint-Germain's front three of Kylian Mbappé, Lionel Messi, and Neymar Jr., many dismissed the comment, but as it turns out, he was right. On this episode of PSG Talking, I'm joined by James Ridge from the PSG Unrestricted podcast to discuss PSG's 2-0 win over Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League. If you're a PSG supporter, you know it's difficult to find insightful commentary, in English, about PSG, so make sure to give them a follow and subscribe to their podcast. We begin this episode with James sharing his overall thoughts on the win that wasn't as convincing as the scoreline might indicate. PSG was put under pressure by City for most of the night, but as James states, it was a real statement of intent for what is to come throughout the rest of the season. Next, we highlight the midfield trio of Idrissa Gueye, Ander Herrera, and Marco Verratti. They were instrumental in the performance and without their defensive determination, City could have gone on to win this match. Gueye stood out especially with a goal in the eighth minute, but later in the first half, he was on the receiving end of a reckless challenge from Kevin De Bruyne. The City star only received a yellow card for the tackle but we discuss whether he should have been sent off immediately. Moving on from the midfield, we address the performance of PSG's three superstars: Mbappé, Messi, and Neymar. While Messi did score his first goal since arriving from FC Barcelona, the performance from MNM didn't live up to expectations. What changes does Mauricio Pochettino need to make to unlock their potential? Later in the show, we praise PSG's defense, which stood strong against City's waves of attacks, and debate whether or not Gianluigi Donnarumma has won the starting goalkeeper role over Keylor Navas. We wrap up the show by having a laugh at our La Liga friends who had a difficult week in the Champions League and I ask James about how he became a PSG fan and if he's seeing more PSG kits in England.
