Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows hosts this week's Podcast and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com Editor Simon Wilkes and TEAMtalk journalist Rob McCarthy.

The trio get straight into a heated debate about Southampton's superb win over Manchester City, with Burrows claiming the defending champions were beaten by a 'struggling' Saints side and both Wilkes and McCarthy arguing there had been a visible improvement in their displays since the shock appointment of Mauricio Pochettino.

They then turn their attention to Sunday's action, which saw Manchester United beat Everton to stretch 12 points clear of City ahead of their gargantuan Champions League tussle with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

Wilkes feels the title race is done and dusted and can't see City closing the gap - and floats the idea that Tottenham could be contenders for a second-placed finish, with McCarthy waxing lyrical about Gareth Bale, claiming he is the best player in the Premier League right now.

The relegation battle comes under the spotlight, and the trio find it hard to argue the cause for Harry Redknapp's rockbottom Rangers getting out of trouble following their limp display in their drubbing by Swansea.

There are plenty more talking points as the entire top-flight weekend is debated - plus we give a shout to a listener who tweeted our #ilovethepodcast slogan.

The Podcast will be available on iTunes but you can listen to it here now.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
