Christian Benteke: Netted a tremendous treble for Villa

Christian Benteke: Netted a tremendous treble for Villa

TEAMtalk.com Editor Simon Wilkes is this week's host and is joined by TEAMtalk colleague Rob McCarthy and Blackburn fan James Dixon, with Sunderland supporter Michael Graham also making a guest appearance.

The trio start proceedings with Villa's dismantling of Paolo Di Canio's Sunderland troops at Villa Park, where the Black Cats were hit for six.

That leads to a debate on the battle for Premier League survival, with all three agreeing that things are looking grim for Wigan, who may struggle to keep Roberto Martinez if they do drop out of England's top tier.

The race for a top-four spot is also discussed before thoughts turn to Robin van Persie's return to The Emirates, where he coolly converted a penalty to earn champions Manchester United a 1-1 draw in the capital.

The trio also chew the fat over the ups and down in the Football League, waxing lyrical about Doncaster's dramatic win at Brentford and debating how QPR and Reading will get on in the Championship.

PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
