The Premier League returns this weekend after FA Cup action last week and most of the talk today is about the champions. Leicester defied the odds to win the Premier League title last season but Claudio Ranieri was sacked yesterday with the club just one point above the relegation zone. For the second season in a row the title winning manager of the previous season has failed to see out the following season. Ranieri followed in the footsteps of Jose Mourinho who was shown the door at Chelsea in December 2015.
Our focus this weekend is on the club that are odds on to lift the title in May. Chelsea have an eight point lead heading into the final 13 league games of the season and with Manchester City not in league action this weekend, Antonio Conte's side could extend their lead with a win over Swansea. However the Swans are much improved under Paul Clement who returns to Stamford Bridge where he worked for four years as a coach and assistant manager. Swansea have taken 12 points from six league games in 2017 to move four points above the relegation zone and Chelsea are winless in their last three against them.
Ron Jones and former Republic of Ireland international Gary Breen will be in the commentary box for us at Stamford Bridge.
As always we'll be joined by former European Cup winner with Liverpool Mark Lawrenson in the first hour of the show to talk about the stories of the week.
AND we'll also be announcing details of a cracking competition for 2 tickets and flights to a marquee game in the Premier League - details below:
