Ahead of yet another dry international break, the pulsating Premier League season prepares to be put on hold.
English football is perhaps at its lowest ebb of all time after a dreadful Euro 2016 and the Sam Allardyce saga, meaning the punters in the Transfer Tavern are trying not to talk about all things Three Lions.
So, news that Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has received a first call-up to the Spanish national side have sparked debate.

Though the former Athletic Bilbao is a hugely talented footballer, fans of both Arsenal and Chelsea have been shocked by his call-up.
They believe Santi Cazorla or Cesc Fabregas, two stalwarts of the Spaniards’ international success over the years, should have been included in the squad for their upcoming games with Italy and Albania.
With that in mind, who do you think is more deserving of a place in Julen Lopetegui’s squad.
