Premier League: Liverpool, Chelsea and Fellaini criticised on new Football Podcast
Liverpool receive a tongue-lashing in the new Football Podcast, and there's criticism of Chelsea and Fellaini too.

Twas the Podcast before Christmas... but there's little festive cheer on display in the studio as several Premier League teams and players find themselves on the naughty list.
First on the agenda are Chelsea, whose lack of belief in the Club World Cup final draws widespread disapproval - and our trio urge them to buck up their ideas if they want to get past Leeds United in Wednesday's Capital One Cup tie at Elland Road.
The Manchester clubs added some sparkle to the latest round of Premier League fixtures, but Mikey believes north-east neighbours Newcastle and Sunderland are both in for a bleak midwinter - also Jon disagrees as far as the Toon are concerned.
Matt delivers some harsh truths to Liverpool after their lethargic defeat to Aston Villa, who are praised to the hilt by Jon.
Jon contemplates Marouane Fellaini's future at Everton after his "perfect hat-trick" of ill-discipline in the 1-1 draw at Stoke, whose physical approach draws Mikey's ire (as usual).
There's also a clash of opinions on Harry Redknapp, and discussion of the latest transfer rumours as old Chelsea colleagues Didier Drogba and Nicolas Anelka prepare for possible Premier League returns.
