Sporting Life's new Premier League podcast talks the title race, Man Utd v Chelsea & VAR. It's free to subscribe and listen to via iTunes, Spotify and Soundcloud.

Our new weekly Premier League Podcast is with you every Monday as we debate the big results, talking points and news from the weekend's matches.

Join Gareth Jones, Paul Higham and George Pitts as they discuss all the big issues from the opening weekend of the new Premier League season.

We start at Old Trafford after an eventful Super Sunday fixture between Manchester and Chelsea - can Ole steer United to the top four, are Frank Lampard's Chelsea really that bad? We take an in-depth look at both teams.

Elsewhere, Man City and Liverpool produced flying starts to the season, will it be another two-horse race for the title this season or can a third challenger come out of the pack?

We also select our heroes and zeroes of the weekend - who performed the best and who has a lot to think about after opening day disaster? There are some surprise choices in here...

Finally, we can't go without mentioning VAR! For once our team are in (almost) total agreement about technology in football as a case of be careful what you wish for - but we have a few ways of improving it going forward.

Watch a snippet below, as we discuss VAR.
