After rechristening Scotland and ‘McTominayLand’, Ryan Bailey and Graham Ruthven get into the biggest matches of the weekend from around Europe!

0.00 - Manchester United vs. Leeds: Ole is at the wheel and his hands are positioned at 6 and 2! We look at how Solskjaer set up perfectly to deal with Marcelo Bielsa’s high-energy side.

21.17 - Everton vs. Arsenal: Mikel Arteta endured an unhappy return to Goodison Park, where the Gunners suffered yet another league loss. We ask: what is an Arsenal, and what does it stand for?

38.50 - Tottenham vs. Leicester: It looked like the Spider-Man meme in North London where two of the league’s best counter-attacking sides pointed at each other Leicester, however, had the better game plan.

51.50 - Bayer Leverkusen vs. Bayern Munich: It is a time of year for giving gifts, and Leverkusen’s Jonathan Tah very kindly placed two in the lap of Robert Lewandowski to send Die Roten to the top of the table for the festive break.
