Last Updated: 18/02/14 5:08pm
Sky Sports News radio presenter Ben Ransom is this week's host and he is joined in the studio by TEAMtalk.com's Sam Nightingale and Football 365's Matthew Stanger as they mull over an action-packed FA Cup weekend, consider the quarter-final draw and look forward to this week's Champions League matches.
The trio discuss Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho's spat after Wenger said that the league was Chelsea's to lose, adding that Mourinho's claim that the Blues are outsiders represents a fear of failure. Mourinho hit back and labelled Wenger a "specialist in failure", prompting the Gunners boss to describe Mourinho's comments as "embarrassing" for Chelsea.
