Sky Sports News Radio's Mikey Burrows is in the chair this week and is joined by TEAMtalk.com Editor Simon Wilkes and his TEAMtalk colleague and Matty Briggs.

The trio kick-off with Stoke's precarious predicament and are joined on the phone by colleague Mark Holmes who gives his expert opinion on why things are going wrong at The Britannia. Simon thinks the Potters have to get rid of Tony Pulis if they are to survive, while Matty says all is not lost and points towards the Di Canio revolution at Sunderland.

The Tyne-Wear derby is analysed and the impact and hunger that Di Canio has had on the Black Cats comes under the microscope. Simon says two of his most memorable Premier League moments have come at St James' Park in recent weeks with the celebrations of Alan Pardew and Di Canio living long in the memory. And Matty says normally sliding on your knees is reserved for idiots at weddings!

Mikey believes the FA Cup semi-final between Chelsea and Manchester City was the final everyone wanted to see, but Matty and Simon disagree. And Sergio Aguero's return to form is the reason why City have started to click again, according to Simon

While in the Premier League Matty says that champions-elect Manchester United are a team that are 'great' at rolling over inferior opposition rather than a 'great' team.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.

f you want to take six points off Arsenal, then that's a great strike force. Can't imagine either of them showing much for the rest of the season though...
