Rafael Benitez: Struggling to awaken Chelsea from recent slumber

Rafael Benitez: Struggling to awaken Chelsea from recent slumber

Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows returns to host our latest Podcast. Chelsea may have changed their manager, but there's been no immediate improvement in results as the inquest into their 3-1 defeat at West Ham is put under the microscope, while the rest of the talking points from this weekend's Premier League action are also debated.

Football365 Editor Sarah Winterburn and TEAMtalk.com Deputy James Marshment join Mikey in the studio to debate Benitez's failure to inspire the Blues, the current struggles at Arsenal and whether Stoke are the most boring side to ever 'grace' the Premier League.

Keeping to the managers under pressure theme, the trio debate whether "yesterday's man" Martin O'Neill has improved Sunderland during his year in charge and whether his time may be coming to an end on Wearside.

We also look into why Manchester United have become this season's "Great entertainers", why Harry Redknapp will struggle to keep QPR up and pick the bones out of the MK Dons v AFC Wimbledon clash and subsequent third-round draw.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

Suarez 'too good for Arsenal'

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
