Sky Sports News Radio's Ben Ransom is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk's Rob McCarthy and Sky Sports's Pete O'Rourke to discuss the weekend's Premier League action, including Liverpool's fine win at Old Trafford, the north London derby and Chelsea's implosion at Villa Park.

You can listen to the Podcast via Soundcloud below, or access it via iTunes.

Rampant Reds

The trio praise Liverpool after their impressive 3-0 win at Manchester United and discuss whether they can go on to win that elusive first top-flight title since 1990.

United's one-paced midfield is also a topic for discussion as David Moyes's troubled Old Trafford tenure once again comes under the spotlight.

Solid Gunners impress

Despite being well below their best Arsenal's defensive play is pinpointed after their 1-0 win at Tottenham, with Spurs fan Rob reluctantly hailing the Mertesacker/Koscielny axis as the league's best.

Pete believes Arsenal's title hopes all depend on how they do in the upcoming games against Chelsea and Manchester City, but thinks that ultimately their injury problems could cost them.

Chelsea implosion

Ben queries what was going through the mind of Jose Mourinho as the Chelsea boss saw red at Villa Park on Saturday night, while Rob calls for Ramires' ban to be doubled after his horrific challenge on Karim El Ahmadi.

Other business

The trio also discuss who they think will be relegated from the Premier League after first wins for Felix Magath at Fulham and Pepe Mel at West Brom.

The midweek Champions League action is also on the agenda as Chelsea and Manchester United look to progress to the quarter-final stage.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

P

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

W

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
