Anfield saw Liverpool and Manchester City play host to a modern day Premier League classic last weekend. Well that’s at least the thoughts of our Data Day Live panel as they looked back over a weekend of action that saw Arsenal extend their advantage at the summit.
Join Duncan Alexander, Matt Furniss, Oliver Hopkins and Graham Bell as they break down the game, reflecting on James Milner’s continued ability to find himself at the heart of many Premier League classics, as well all the other key action from the weekend. We’ve also got an exclusive first look at the supercomputer’s findings for the midweek Premier League matches as well as a quick glance across at Spain, where Real Madrid came out on top against Barcelona.
