On today’s Football Weekly Extra, AC Jimbo has Barry Glendenning, Simon Burnton and Iain Macintosh to reinforce his faith in football - or фудбал, as the say in Macedonia betweens mouthfuls of fruit salad. Which is a gag that will only make sense to our most loyal listeners.

We begin with Chelsea, who hit top spot after a sixth consecutive win and clean sheet following Liverpool’s 0-0 draw at Southampton. Neither the Reds nor the Blues are in Europe, which is a big help, or so say The Experts.

Next up, we turn our attention to teams that are in the Champions League. Manchester City won’t have the rejuvenated Yaya Touré in their squad when they travel to Borussia Mönchengladbach, and Leicester will be looking to maintain their perfect European record after another miserable defeat in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Arsenal - so disappointing at United - are battling it out with PSG to win their group, while Tottenham - not quite as disappointing, and, crucially, victorious at West Ham - are hanging on for dear life as they head to Monaco.

Finally, Sid Lowe tells us what Celtic can expect from a wounded Barcelona, and we also get up to speed with the Championship, the Milan derby and Der Klassiker.

And we even make time to swoon over Shinji Okazaki’s calf muscles. Phwoar!
