Sky Sports News Radio's Ben Ransom is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk's James Dixon and Sky Sports' Pete O'Rourke to discuss the weekend's Premier League action, including Liverpool's title charge following their fine win over Tottenham, the uncertainty surrounding Tottenham and the winners and losers in the relegation dogfight.

Reds rising

The trio praise Liverpool after their impressive 4-0 win over Tottenham, with Ben and Pete sensing a change around the club as the Reds moved into pole position for that elusive first top-flight title since 1990. The club's continued ascent is also discussed by the three, as Brendan Rodger's and his men continue to take the spot light with their attacking performances.

Six of the best?

With six games to go Liverpool fan Pete looks ahead to the Reds' crucial game against Manchester City as potentially the "game of the season" and the key fixture in the race to become Champions. Ben and James rule out Chelsea's chances for league silverware, highlighting Jose Mourinho's eagerness to rule out the Blues earlier on in the season as a policy that backfired.

Tottenham's troubles

James questions the Tottenham players desire against Liverpool in the 4-0 defeat, while Ben queries Tim Sherwood's decision to take to the stands during the game. The trio go on to discuss the rumours surrounding Louis Van Gaal taking the Spurs helm with Pete supporting the potential appointment of the current Netherlands head coach.

Relegation dog fight

All three have their pick on who is for the drop in the Premier League with the trio agreeing that Fulham will be the first to go. Following Cardiff's last-minute recovery, snatching a draw at West Brom, James believes the Bluebirds have given themselves a real chance of staying up as well as dealing a hammer blow to the Baggies ambitions in the top flight.

Aerial protest

The protest at Old Trafford also comes under scrutiny by Ben and Pete who both disapprove with banner flown over the ground and Pete argues that he deserves until January to have the chance to make his mark on the side. James and Pete assess Manchester United's chances against Bayern Munich with James writing off United, but Pete says the pressure is off and could work in their favour.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
