Premier League review and Football Beyond Borders – Football Weekly Extra

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We look back at the last couple of days of football, starting with the biggest game of the full Premier League midweek fixture list, where Chelsea ran out 2-0 winners over Tottenham.

Following a 5-1 victory over Bournemouth, Arsenal have managed to close the gap to Tottenham from 10 points to four in the space of just four days – they meet this weekend.

We look at the rest of the Premier League fixtures, including a long overdue win for Huddersfield, Southampton taking the spoils in a crucial relegation survival fight, the return of Brendan Rodgers to English football and Ole Gunnar Solskjær setting a new record at Manchester United.

There’s some fitba, El Clásico and an introduction to Football Beyond Borders, the football and education charity Ceylon works for, before Barry sends some ominous birthday wishes to a listener.

Back on Monday!

PS: we have a show at EartH in east London on 15 March which is now completely sold out! Max, Barry, Gregg Bakowski and David Squires – more information can be found here.
