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.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
