All eyes on the Premier League – Football Weekly Extra | Football

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We look back at the weekend’s football action, starting with the six goals shared between Bournemouth and Watford, four of which came within the space of six minutes.

We talk Huddersfield’s survival prognosis after their 2-1 defeat to Burnley, which came after they went ahead thanks to the first goal to come from any of their strikers this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s 100% record continues after Romelu Lukaku scored with his first touch – a combination of words which hasn’t been used a lot this season – and Spurs and Arsenal pick up wins against relegation-threatened opposition.

Finally we look ahead to the Premier League’s biggest game of the season – and indeed, in recent memory – in Manchester City v Liverpool.

Back tomorrow with Football Weekly Extra Extra!
