Sky Sports News Radio's Mikey Burrows returns to the hosts' chair this week and is joined by TEAMtalk.com Deputy Editor James Marshment and his TEAMtalk colleague and Manchester United fan Tom McDermott.

The trio get stuck straight into Monday night's Manchester derby, with Marshy saying the victory proves just how much City have underperformed this season and why Roberto Mancini must take a portion of the blame.

McDermott, meanwhile, is quick to defend Danny Welbeck and explains why, despite his lack of goals, he must remain one of the first names on Sir Alex Ferguson's teamsheet.

The race for the top four is also debated, but it is the battle to stay in the Premier League that really get the trio hot under the collar, while the Goal of the Weekend also gets discussed at length. Will Matt Lowton, Sergio Aguero, Loic Remy or Papiss Cisse get the trio's vote?

But it is the battle to stay in the Premier League which really divides opinion. Mikey reels off a number of stats to suggest who could go down, while Marshy is dismissive of the Paolo Di Canio factor and believes Sunderland will suffer the drop, while McDermott states why he believes Stoke could be the ones to feel the pain.

The promotion and relegation battles in the Championship are also put under the microscope, while we finish the Podcast with our own little tribute to Phil Neville, following his decision to quit Everton.

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.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
