Episode 262 of 793 episodes

Jermaine Jenas, Chris Sutton & The Times' Jonathan Northcroft join Mark Chapman ahead of Sunday's Manchester and Tyne Weir derbies.

Where does Wayne Rooney fit into Louis van Gaal's team? He "always leads from the front," says Chris Sutton. Is Garry Monk feeling the pressure at Swansea after a week of speculation, and is his side's game against Aston Villa a 'must-win' for Villa boss Tim Sherwood? And is Jermain Defoe suffering at Sunderland because he is a "dying breed" of footballer?
