After another busy Premier League weekend of thrills and spills, the Podcast returns with host Mikey Burrows of Sky Sports News Radio joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com duo Mark Holmes and Jon Holmes.

We start on the fall-out from Wigan's 2-1 home win over Newcastle on Sunday. The Latics left it late to record a crucial victory, but the main talking point was Callum McManaman's shocking tackle on Massadio Haidara which was missed by the officials at the DW Stadium. Our trio give their views on the incident, the possible repercussions and how justice might be done in the future via video technology.

Staying on the relegation picture, there's praise for Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert and his young players from Jon after they beat QPR 3-2, while Mikey and Mark consider which teams are still vulnerable as we prepare for the final eight games of the campaign.

Mikey is keen to hear Mark's views on Stoke's stalemate against West Brom, and the disappointing run which has seen the Potters pick up just five points in 2013. It's essential listening for Stoke fans, but interesting too for supporters of other clubs as Mark considers how the club can hope to evolve in the top-flight.

There's also debate on when Manchester United can expect to secure their 20th league title, Roberto Mancini's ongoing problems at City and the race for top-four places - with Chelsea and Arsenal on the up, and Tottenham and Liverpool slipping up.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
