Sky Sports News Radio host Mikey Burrows hosts this week's Football Podcast and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com duo James Marshment and Tom McDermott to discuss another thrilling weekend in the Premier League.

United in crisis

It goes from bad to worse for David Moyes at Old Trafford with Saturday's embarrassing home defeat to West Brom leaving the defending champions 12th in the table.

But where's it all gone wrong for United? McDermott casts serious doubts on United's chances of finishing in the top four this season, and questions Moyes' tactics at the weekend.

Marshment, meanwhile, explains why he saw this dip coming, and also hits out at Moyes' naivity with some of his statements in the media.

Arsenal's title challenge

The Gunners' 2-1 win at Swansea on Saturday evening leaves them two points clear at the summit, and Marshment explains why he thinks they're a decent bet to last the course this season.

McDermott is full of praise for Mathieu Flamini and explains why his return has been the single biggest factor in Aaron Ramsey hitting top form.

Best of the rest

The Sunderland managerial job also comes under discussion, with Marshment and McDermott disagreeing totally on the wisdom in giving Kevin Ball the job full-time, while the former launches a passionate defence on Martin Jol, who has found his position at Fulham put under the spotlight following Saturday's home defeat to Cardiff.

Burrows and McDermott also have differing viewpoints on Fernando Torres' scratching incident.

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.
