Sky Sports News Radio presenter Mikey Burrows returns to host our latest Podcast. Chelsea may have changed their manager, but there's been no immediate improvement in results as the inquest into their 3-1 defeat at West Ham is put under the microscope, while the rest of the talking points from this weekend's Premier League action are also debated.

Football365 Editor Sarah Winterburn and TEAMtalk.com Deputy James Marshment join Mikey in the studio to debate Benitez's failure to inspire the Blues, the current struggles at Arsenal and whether Stoke are the most boring side to ever 'grace' the Premier League.

Keeping to the managers under pressure theme, the trio debate whether "yesterday's man" Martin O'Neill has improved Sunderland during his year in charge and whether his time may be coming to an end on Wearside.

We also look into why Manchester United have become this season's "Great entertainers", why Harry Redknapp will struggle to keep QPR up and pick the bones out of the MK Dons v AFC Wimbledon clash and subsequent third-round draw.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
