Essential Football is back with a round-up of all the weekend's Premier League matches, featuring pundit reaction, interviews and reporter analysis from up and down the top-flight.
PART ONE | There's only one place to start and that's Manchester City's 6-3 Manchester derby win over rivals Manchester United. We hear from Kevin De Bruyne, Pep Guardiola and Erik ten Hag before Gary Neville and Roy Keane have their say on events at the Etihad Stadium. Peter Smith, Nick Wright and Ben Grounds, who covered the game for Sky Sports' digital platforms, dissect the game, from City's hat-trick heroes in Erling Haaland and Phil Foden to another slow United start and Cristiano Ronaldo's non-selection.
PART TWO | Arsenal have the north London bragging rights after a 3-1 victory over rivals Spurs. Are Mikel Arteta's side in the title race? Sam Blitz and Nick Wright have their say. We then round up the rest of Saturday's action as Liverpool are held again, this time by Brighton, Connor Gallagher returns to break Crystal Palace hearts and hand Graham Potter a first win as Chelsea boss, and there are wins for Newcastle, Everton and West Ham.
