Sky Sports News Radio presenter Ben Ransom hosts this week's Football Podcast and is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com's Pete Hall and Football365.com's Daniel Storey as they look back on the big talking points from the week's games in the Premier League.

Moyes misery mounting

The studio start by dissecting back-to-back home defeats for Manchester United. United fan Pete laments the decision to play an "unfit" Robin van Persie, and doesn't see any new arrivals coming in January to solve their current crisis. Daniel questions the belief David Moyes has instilled within his players, but disagrees with Pete, highlighting a desperate manager has to strengthen. Host Ben also raises the issue as to whether United "could do a Liverpool" and see their era of success come to an end.

Inconsistent Chelsea

The panel are baffled by Chelsea's defeat at Stoke, with Daniel questioning what has happened to the "siege mentality" at Stamford Bridge. Pete singles out Petr Cech for criticism, while Ben is baffled by Jose Mourinho's reaction to the weekend defeat.

Arsenal tests to come

Despite a home draw with Everton at the weekend, Pete admits the Gunners are realistic title contenders, but cannot resist adding another "if" to the debate, while Daniel highlights upcoming tough matches that will give us a more clear indication of Arsenal's ambitions.

Spurs back on form?

Daniel and Pete highlight despite two wins in a week, Tottenham need to solve their profligacy in the final third, with Ben highlighting Spurs' lack of ability up front as the reason for such a poor conversion rate.

England's exciting draw

Ben struggles to hide his patriotism after Friday's World Cup draw, and believes a tough group could add more excitement this summer's main event. Pete insists the line-up isn't all that difficult with Uruguay a declining threat, while Daniel is less excitable than Ben, predicting a familiar quarter-final exit for the Three Lions.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
