“Have you done your roadwork, you’d better keep your left up” – immortal words for anyone old enough to remember the days when breakfast was the most important meal of the day, not something best avoided by all right-thinking members of society, and when our halves of televised football weren’t bookended by missives from our favourite altruistic “behing caaaantny”. Nevertheless, this early afternoon slot houses a selection of games that are very, very tasty, so let’s climb onto that painful segue and dive right in.

At Elland Road, Leeds entertain Arsenal, the league leaders having won three straight since losing while playing fairly well at Old Trafford. Their defence still looks a little suss – perhaps too suss for a serious title challenge – but on the other hand, if Mikel Arteta’s team have found an attacking style reliably fluent enough for them to beat everyone they should beat twice, you never know.

Meanwhile, we should see a belter at the aforementioned – its first league fixture in six weeks. Manchester United are nowhere near as good as they could be but are perceptibly progressing, and Thursday night’s Fergie-time winner won’t have done them any harm. Newcastle United, though, are in fine form, and their hard-running proactivity and invention looks a decent match-up for a side still trying to assimilate a new way of doing things.

As if that wasn’t enough, old friends Steven Gerrard and Chelsea convene with the former’s Villa under severe pressure. It seems unlikely that his board will tolerate too many more tame reverses, and though Chelsea have major injury issues, the players who are fit have settled well under Graham Potter.

And finally, West Ham, who took a while to get their season going, visit Southampton, who’ve lost four in a row while looking like serious relegation candidates.

Key occasions

“Glenn Hoddle was the backup goalkeeper – or next in line – at the 1982 World Cup if I recall correctly,” tweets @TheStellaRossa. “Shilton was fine but both Ray Clemence and Joe Corrigan were injured during the tournament. Had anything happened to Shilts, big G was the goalie!”

I used to be 3 in ’82 so don’t take into account that – my debut was once ’86 – however nonetheless I’m harm that didn’t occur.

“This Brazilian central defender called Gabriel,” emails Charles Antaki, “is an an improvement over Arsenal’s previous Brazilian central defender called Gabriel (quietly shown the exit door five years ago); so we’re on a trajectory where Arsenal’s next Brazilian central defender called Gabriel will be a world-beater.”

I’d forgotten about him – although must have famous that at 24, present Gabriel has time to up his degree.

Kieran Tierney may well be questioning what’s going in this afternoon. Last weekend, Arteta used Tomiyasu at the unsuitable aspect – his aspect – at left-back, which I believed was once so Mohamed Salah would come inside of on his robust foot. But Sinisterra infrequently calls for the similar provision, which implies Tierney would possibly now be 3rd selection.

The Chelsea gamers have “Get well soon Emma” at the again in their coaching tops, as message to the chief in their girls’s crew who’s having break day with sickness. We echo that – Hayes is a hero.

“So why not say ‘Manchester’ and ‘Newcastle’ then?” asks Mike Daniels. “Why insist that Manchester have dibs on ‘United’?”

Er, as a result of there’s every other crew – additionally taking part in these days because it is going – who’ve “Manchester” as their first title, and no longer every other who use “Newcastle”. It’s no longer deep, I promise.

“Good Afternoon Daniel, good afternoon all round, from a cloudy Lewes,” starts Em Jackson. “In this fixture between Man Utd and Newcastle Utd, I’d pick a hybrid player, a United United player if you will: 50% Roy Keane & 50% Alan Shearer. Would give your side 110% vs the opposition and 120% in fights between themselves. Otherwise I’d go with Nicky Butt.”

Meanwhile, Keith Priddle wonders “How about Harry Kane, striker, midfield and goalie. Or Glenn Hoddle can do the same and put gloves on in extremis!”

Indeed, right here his is donning the gloves … and maintaining a blank sheet at Old Trafford.

I’ve simply spotted that Carney Chuwuemeka is at the bench for Chelsea in opposition to his previous membership. I in point of fact like what I’ve observed of him, and I’d love to peer him get at the pitch for a right kind stretch these days. Otherwise, that aspect appears a bit of ordinary – Gerrard will fancy his aspect to outnumber Loftus-Cheek and Kovacic in central midfield, and Mount isn’t as his best possible off the precise.

Back Arsenal, I mentioned I’m desirous about their again 4, and I’m. I feel they’re all respectable gamers, and Ben White specifically is doing a great task at right-back given he isn’t in point of fact one. But it’s uncommon a facet wins a identify with out one of the crucial best possible defenders round, and I to find Gabriel a bit of wild.

Talking of Kobby Mainoo – and please bear in mind, I don’t say this flippantly – that is THE GREATEST calling a participant by way of their fore- and surname there’s ever been.

Public provider announcement: I do know each Manchester and Newcastle have the similar surname. But we’re overlaying 4 suits without delay right here, so please forgive with me if I name one “United” and the opposite “Newcastle”, it’s not anything private.

“He could play left-back, right-back, get you a goal, knew how to defend, never injured, a brilliant guy in the dressing room. “Denis would be world class to me x11,” says Alex Newcombe of Roy Keane’s roommtate, Mr Irwin.

Righto, let’s make our means thru what those groups imply:

Steven Gerrard has but every other bash at discovering an XI that works, binning Philippe Coutinho and Emi Buendía for Danny Ings, that well-known left-winger, and Leon Bailey, whilst Graham Potter brings in Kai Havertz, Marc Cucurella and Ruben Loftus-Cheek for Kalidou Koulibaly, Jorginho and the aggravatingly injured Reece James.

Leeds herald Luis Sinisterra, who’s again from suspension, and he replaces Patrick Bamford; Arsenal are unchanged.

Man United are with out Christian Eriksen and Scott McTominay, so Fred, who began in midweek, is once more in midfield with Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes. At the again, Raphaël Varane is deemed in a position to regain his position from Victor Lindelöf, whilst in assault, it’s Jadon Sancho no longer Marcus Rashford and Ronaldo no longer Anthony Martial. Also worthy of be aware is the presence of native lad, Kobby Mainoo at the bench – he appears a ludicrous skill, an all-round midfielder with stunning stability, ability and weight of go. As for Newcastle, Eddie Howe brings Joelinton in for Joewillock.

At St Mary’s, Southampton herald Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Mohamed Elyounoussi for Ibrahima Diallo and Stuart Armstrong, whilst West Ham box Ben Johnson, Vladimir Coufal and Emerson as an alternative of Craig Dawson, Kurt Zouma and Pablo Fornals.

On Sky, Kevin de Bruyne has simply been requested which participant he’d select if he needed to collect an XI of the similar participant. He mentioned Patrick Vieira – I’m no longer certain why as a result of as wonderful as he was once, he was once a midfield specialist. Now that you simply don’t ask, I’d selecting between Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney however leaning against the latter as a result of he’s a good keeper. Feel unfastened to inform me why I’m unsuitable.

Let’s have some groups…

Aston Villa: Martinez, Cash, Konsa, Mings, Luiz, McGinn, Ings, Watkins, Young, Bailey, Ramsey. Subs: Olsen, Sanson, Buendia, Chambers, Nakamba, Bednarek, Coutinho, Dendoncker, Bogarde.

Chelsea: Kepa, Chalobah, Silva, Cucurella, Mount, Kovacic, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell, Havertz, Aubameyang, Sterling. Subs: Mendy, Jorginho, Pulisic, Broja, Zakaria, Gallagher, Koulibaly, Azpilicueta, Chukwuemeka.

Preamble

“Have you done your roadwork, you’d better keep your left up” – immortal phrases for somebody sufficiently old to bear in mind the times when breakfast was once an important meal of the day, no longer one thing best possible have shyed away from by way of all right-thinking individuals of society, and when our halves of televised soccer weren’t bookended by way of missives from our favorite altruistic “behing caaaantny”. Nevertheless, this early afternoon slot properties a choice of video games which might be very, very tasty, so let’s climb onto that painful segue and dive correct in.

At Elland Road, Leeds entertain Arsenal, the league leaders having gained 3 instantly since shedding whilst taking part in moderately smartly at Old Trafford. Their defence nonetheless appears a bit of suss – in all probability too suss for a major identify problem – however alternatively, if Mikel Arteta’s crew have discovered an attacking taste reliably fluent sufficient for them to overcome everybody they must beat two times, you by no means know.

Meanwhile, we must see a belter on the aforementioned – its first league fixture in six weeks. Manchester United are nowhere close to as just right as they may well be however are perceptibly progressing, and Thursday evening’s Fergie-time winner gained’t have performed them any hurt. Newcastle United, although, are in fantastic shape, and their hard-running proactivity and invention appears a good match-up for a facet nonetheless looking to assimilate a brand new means of doing issues.

As if that wasn’t sufficient, previous pals Steven Gerrard and Chelsea convene with the previous’s Villa below serious power. It turns out not likely that his board will tolerate too many extra tame reverses, and although Chelsea have main damage problems, the gamers who’re are compatible have settled smartly below Graham Potter.

And in spite of everything, West Ham, who took some time to get their season going, talk over with Southampton, who’ve misplaced 4 in a row whilst taking a look like critical relegation applicants.

Which is to mention that there’s a load happening, so keep on with me as we watch all of it spread.
