"They have to improve but their characteristics are a little bit different". He made an enormous impression, played extremely well and was a decisive figure towards the end of the season when we started to really climb up the league.

"Ninety minutes are 90 minutes". Everyone wanted to win Serie A, not the other competitions.

"I don't want to think about the record, only to think about the match and to gain points". I think we need to improve and we need to improve with these players because they can improve.

Fellow podcast guest Duncan Castles added: "I think it's a factor in the sense that Real Madrid have to calculate as you do when you are hiring any manager whether it's going to be successful".

"Maybe not for the top but we have to try to arrive close to the top. At the moment we can think only that we need to cover the gap".

And he'll be keeping an eye on his waistline - the one he expects to still be wrapped with the title belt after Saturday night. Hey, you are drawn to the fact to a tale as old as time... "I'm pretty sure somewhat he's taking it serious".

What Virgil van Dijk told Jurgen Klopp after Arsenal draw
In an enthralling 1-1 draw, Arsenal provided numerous answers after Alexandre Lacazette's late equaliser gave them a point. Arsenal has some good players, and you saw against Leicester City the other week what can happen when they get on a roll.

A memorial is taking place outside the club's stadium, with several players paying tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha in recent days. A wreath was laid on the pitch and a minute's silence immaculately observed by both sets of fans.

Sarri also appeared to rule out a January loan move for Ruben Loftus-Cheek but insists the midfielder must improve if he is to claim a regular place in his Premier League side.

Hodgson was keen to get his hands on Loftus-Cheek for a second time but fully understood why the young Three Lions ace, 22, wanted to stake his claim for a starting spot at Chelsea. It is not possible that every player is good enough to play here when he is 19 or 20.

However, additional information reveals that his former coach at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho, who is now in charge at Manchester United, is on the hunt for Moses.

Sarri is surprised at his team's lofty position in the table having predicted they would encounter "problems" in the first half of the campaign, and remains adamant that they are some way short of achieving the defensive solidity that underpins truly elite sides. You have to play well when you are on loan, but very very well. For me Cahill is important on and off the pitch as captain'. Crystal Palace visit the west Londoners' home on Sunday afternoon, but the hosts will certainly be the favourites to win this game against a side that has only two wins in the last 10 matches.
