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.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
