N’Golo Kante was everywhere during the Uefa Super Cup final – and the Frenchman’s performance suggests that there are plenty of reasons for Chelsea to be positive about the 2019/20 season.

Host Jake Entwistle was joined by guests Muhammad Butt, Will Hall and Sam Long on this week’s episode to discuss events in Istanbul and preview the weekend’s Premier League action.

Will Man City get revenge on Spurs for last season’s Champions League semi-final defeat? Will Sokratis’ individual duel with Ashley Barnes descend into a wrestling match? And can Man Utd figure out a way to beat the bane of the ‘Big Six’?
