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.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
