Wacky races, Celtic’s surge and the fall of Huddersfield – Football Weekly

Wacky races, Celtic's surge

Join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter and email.

We look back at the weekend of football just gone, starting with Liverpool’s last-minute win over Spurs, taking them back to the top of the table courtesy of a Toby Alderweireld own goal.

Manchester City are going toe-to-toe with them, beating Fulham 2-0, and could go ahead with a midweek win over Cardiff, who themselves were unlucky to lose against Chelsea as clear decisions went against them – perhaps in a world with VAR, they may have won that game.

We round up the rest of the Premier League action as Huddersfield are relegated, West Ham fold against Everton and Southampton and Burnley make their bids for survival.

Lots of action throughout the Football League, with plenty still to play for – which can’t be said of the Scottish Premiership, where Celtic went 13 points clear of Rangers following the latest Old Firm derby, while in women’s football, Arsenal and Manchester United both have potential titles in their grasp after good wins against close rivals.

We speak to Sid Lowe about the race for the top four in Spain, Archie Rhind-Tutt brings us up to date with the Bundesliga title race and Paolo Bandini rounds up an action-packed weekend in Serie A.

Back on Thursday!

PS: we have two new shows! Glasgow on 22 April and Belfast on 23 April. Click the cities to find those tickets. Both shows feature Ewan Murray, with Glasgow featuring Jonathan Wilson, while Belfast has Lars Sivertsen completing the bill.
