European football correspondent Ian Hawkey makes a belated debut on the show to talk about the upcoming round of Champions League fixtures in which Tottenham travel to the Bernabeu spearheaded by Europe’s most in-form striker Harry Kane.

The England striker is on the Spanish giant’s radar, but his priority is securing the three points that will bolster Spurs’ chances of progressing to the knockout stages of the competition against a team who have yet to catch fire this term.

Top of the table in England plays top of the pile in Italy: Manchester City, scorer of 29 Premier League goals so far, face a Napoli side with 25 top-flight Serie A goals as Pep Guardiola looks to cement City’s place as a true force in the European elite hierarchy.

Steve Luckings and Graham Caygill look at the state of play after the latest round of Premier League fixtures after Arsenal’s all-too-familiar shortcomings once again reared their ugly head in the 2-1 defeat to Watford and ask whether the criticism of Jose Mourinho for “parking the bus” against Liverpool is justified.

Also joining them on the phone is sports reporter John McAuley who will be giving an update on the UAE manager’s situation with Alberto Zaccheroni set to be named Edgardo Bauza’s replacement.
