The Royal Blue team had plenty to get their teeth stuck into in the latest edition of the podcast. Top of the agenda today, as host Phil Kirkbride posed the questions to Dave Prentice, Adam Jones and Gav Buckland, was Everton's growing injury problems. A week that had already confirmed a lay-off for Abdoulaye Doucoure also brought us confirmation of a set-back for Dominic Calvert-Lewin and an injury to Yerry Mina. The panel assess Everton's injury problems and look at how Rafa Benitez will cope for the upcoming games. Today's conversation then moves onto ticket prices after the club confirmed the cost of coming to Goodison will go up next season as Everton begin the process of working out how life will look at the new stadium.

Dave Prentice and Gavin Buckland join Sam Carroll for your Friday edition of the Royal Blue podcast to look ahead to Sunday's visit of West Ham United to L4. The match will mark the return of David Moyes, along with Kurt Zouma and Nikola Vlasic, to Everton. It's now more than nine years since Moyes left the Blues for Manchester United. His derisory bids for Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines after he moved to United soured his relationship with Evertonians. But, with time proving just what a good job he did at Goodison Park, has that frostiness cooled? Equally, are Blues taking Rafa Benitez, who used to go up against Moyes when he was in charge of Liverpool, closer to their hearts? Both questions are discussed by Sam, Gav and Prenno, who held an exclusive interview with Benitez for the Liverpool ECHO this week, which you can read by clicking the links below. And with Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin still sidelined, the panel also ask whether Sunday is the perfect time for Salomon Rondon to kick start his Everton career.

By popular demand, David Hughes and Josh Williams are back with Analysing Everton, their excellent tactics and analytics podcast. And it's a good time to return with the Blues just two points off top spot going into the international break following the 1-1 draw at Manchester United last weekend. So have our hosts changed their pre-season predictions? David and Josh give their opinions on that, then dig deep into the numbers to explain whether Everton's impressive start to the campaign is built on solid foundations. Focusing on what new boss Rafa Benitez has done to the team, they also look at the performances of prominent individual players, including Demarai Gray, Andros Townsend and Abdoulaye Doucoure, and also talk about where Dwight McNeil, the Burnley winger who was linked with a move to Goodison Park in the summer, could fit in.

Ben Haines is joined by former Brighton and Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray and Premier League presenter Nubaid Haroon to discuss the big talking points from Saturday's action. Liverpool are top of the league after beating Crystal Palace. The boys talk about how Mohamed Salah has improved his overall game this season and the impact having fans back at Anfield is having on Jurgen Klopp's side. Over 53,000 fans were at the Etihad to watch Manchester City have just one shot on target in a goalless draw with Southampton. Did Pep's comments about wanting more supporters to come to the Etihad invite extra pressure on his players? And with Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United all looking strong this season, how costly will those dropped points be if they're to defend their Premier League title? On Sunday, injury-hit Tottenham face a Chelsea team that has conceded just one goal in the league this season. Glenn offers his expertise on how best to deal with the threat of Romelu Lukaku. Rafa Benitez suffered his first defeat as Everton manager as they were beaten 3-0 by Aston Villa. Glenn and Nubaid debate Rafa's style of play and what constitutes “entertaining football.” And they reflect on the impact Leon Bailey had, with the Villa winger coming on as a substitute, scoring a goal and grabbing an assist before being brought back off the pitch, in a remarkable 21 minute debut. Derby County beat Stoke a day after announcing that the club will go into administration. Aaron Paul from the 72+ podcast joins us to talk about what points deductions they could face and we hear from Wayne Rooney on his concerns for everyone involved at Pride Park. Elsewhere in the East Midlands, Nottingham Forest began life without Chris Hughton with victory over Huddersfield for their first win of the season.

The DICTL Derby is rapidly approaching and Rebecca & Alex are back to look at Liverpool and Chelsea's great starts to the season. Liverpool have started the season where they left off, except this time they have most of their squad actually available. We chat about Virgil van Dijk continuing where he left off, the club tying down their core players to new contracts, who can best fulfil the 'Gini Wijnaldum' role, and rant about the reactions from Sean Dyche and English pundits following the win over Burnley. Chelsea have also hit the ground running, with Jorginho now the best player in Europe (apparently) and Romelu Lukaku scoring within 15 minutes of his re-debut. Are Chelsea truly title contenders this season and how will Chelsea vs Liverpool play out this weekend? Will both teams go for the win or settle for a draw in the title race? And who will win the anticipated battle of Lukaku vs Van Dijk? We also take a closer look at the Champions League group stages draw, Arsenal under Arteta looking like an absolute mess, Tottenham impressing under Nuno, Harry Kane sticking around, Manchester City's midfield weaknesses, West Ham and Brighton's strong starts, Man Utd's title challenge already coming to a screeching halt, and Rafa Benitez at Everton so far.

The Totally Football Show with James Richardson

Jimbo is alongside Duncan Alexander, Charlie Eccleshare and James Horncastle as Italy & Spain set up a semi-final meeting at Euro 2020. Roberto Mancini's Italy knock out the number 1 ranked team in the world in Belgium, in a performance that has everything. How have the Azzurri managed to put together this 32-game unbeaten run? And why wasn't Mancini more in demand? Spain are victorious on penalties against 10-man Switzerland but are hugely wasteful in front of goal again. Alvaro Romeo tells us why the Spanish might be about to click, through unity and conviction. But do they lack personality? In Saturday's quarter-finals, it's Czech Republic v Denmark and then, England v Ukraine in Rome. Yevhen Muzyka tells us why Shevchenko isn't as popular as you might think. Plus we talk Sancho, Nuno and Rafa Benitez, all on the move in club football.
