Musa and Ryan have a lot to get through this week and begin with a roundup of key women’s games around Europe, including the top four all winning in the WSL (02:48) as well as Bayern and Barcelona maintaining 100 percent starts ahead of this week’s Women’s Champions League. It’s then to the Premier League, reflecting on Manchester United’s win over Manchester City in the derby, halting the winning run of Pep Guardiola’s side (17:46), before touching on Fulham’s win over Liverpool and why Jürgen Klopp is still the perfect man to coach at Anfield (27:31). They also round up the rest of the Premier League (35:57) before heading to the Bundesliga, where Bayern came from behind to beat Dortmund (38:06), and then to La Liga where a title race is emerging following a draw in the Madrid derby and a win for Barcelona, before discussing Joan Laporta’s return to the Barcelona presidency (47:44). Finally, there are props to Steven Gerrard for returning Rangers to the top of Scottish football after their first top-flight title in 10 years (63:32).
