On the podcast today: the panel discusses the mid-week FA Cup fourth-round replays as Chelsea look impressive in their 3-1 win over Aston Villa. Could the Blues feasibly have a bad season and yet still win two cups?

Also, with several players potentially returning from international duty, the panel looks ahead to an exciting weekend of Premier League football as they salute Rodri, who is unbeaten for over a year when he plays for City. Will his streak continue as they host Everton? Luton are unbeaten in 2024, and now face bottom-placed Sheffield United. Are the Blades and Burnley resigned to playing Championship football next season?

Plus: the panel reflects on the semi-finals of both the Africa Cup of Nations and the Asian Cup as a Nigeria gives Nedum the ‘worst stress he has felt in years’. The Super Eagles progressed on penalties to set up a final against tournament hosts Ivory Coast, while underdogs Jordan meet Asian Cup hosts Qatar on Saturday.
