Not everyone has to celebrate Christmas to bask in the light of a Barclays Festive Behemoth, so the pod gather around the flaming wreck of Aston Villa and take a look at the action of the weekend. First up, Chelsea. They then move to Manchester and take a look at the challenges facing both managers.

There is lots of football to come so let’s contextualise. Football means different things to different people, the pod discuss what a plan B actually is and whether it’s needed, they look at uppy-downy LFC and then Morgan speaks about Spurs.

Of course there are a series of pods planned for the holidays so don’t miss out on the Yule-Chat, Twitter is the place to go for the rest of that chat. Or in the comment section below. Let’s EPL Talk about it:
