City dominate United in the derby while Liverpool leave it very late at Forest

3/3/2024
Matt Davies-Adams is in the hotseat with Tim Spiers, Seb Stafford-Bloor and Jack Pitt-Brooke for company after a Premier League weekend full of late drama and stunning goals. Man City come from behind to beat Man United 3-1 at the Etihad. Are we still yet to see the best of City? And could Phil Foden be footballer of the year? Controversy for Clattenburg at the City Ground as Liverpool win in the 99th minute at Forest. We praise Liverpool’s resolve and ask if Forest are peak Barclays? Also on the agenda, the likeable Timo Werner, the Kompany conundrum, the players that could miss out on the Euros and the most improved player in the Premier League. Produced by Charlie Jones.
