Roberto Di Matteo: Took the threat of West Brom too lightly

Roberto Di Matteo: Took the threat of West Brom too lightly

Sky Sports News presenter Mikey Burrows hosts this week's review of an intriguing weekend of Premier League action, with Mark Holmes and Ian Watson joining him to pick the bones out of defeats for QPR, Manchester United and Chelsea.

There is little sympathy among the trio for Mark Hughes, whose side surrendered meekly to Southampton in the clash dubbed 'El Sackico'.

Mikey and Mark believe there is a tangible decrease in the quality throughout the Premier League this season, but Ian is happy to give credit to Norwich and West Brom, while labelling Fernando Torres 'finished' at Chelsea.

Andre Villas-Boas was in bullish mood, despite the 5-2 defeat at Arsenal, with Mark and Ian in agreement that he is the right man for Tottenham.

Mikey is even more enthusiastic about the 'genius' of Roberto Mancini, but Mark uses consecutive defeats for Newcastle to tear into manager Alan Pardew and his tactical plan for the Magpies.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
