We’ve all got numbers

Man United rely on spirit, courage and Ronaldo again against Atalanta. But could Cristiano starting against Liverpool provide a problem for Solskjaer’s side?

Chelsea hammer Malmo but lose Lukaku and Werner to injury. Meanwhile Man City have got Foden, Palmer and also the Salford Silva.

Back in the Premier League, are Leeds in decline? Phil Hay tells us what the future holds this season under Marcelo Bielsa.

Newcastle travel to Crystal Palace with the sub-plot of the Parish and co versus the PIF. And Adam tells us about his report on the plight of Saudi LGBT+ people.

Plus unsuccessful loans and sentient fixture computers.
