Southampton, it can be argued, boast the best young left-back in the Premier League in Luke Shaw. The teenager has emerged as one of the finest in his position following Saints' return to England's top tier, making the starting spot in the XI his own after the south coast side failed to secure the signature of Alexander Büttner last summer.

David Moyes, Ed Woodward and Manchester United have shown who is boss and his name is Wayne Rooney. Days after the signing of Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata for £37.1 million, striker Wayne Rooney is once again in talks with the Old Trafford hierarchy to extend his current deal which ends in 18 months time.

It speaks volumes about the strength of Arsenal's midfield that recent injuries to Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey have not been enough to generate much in the way of serious transfer speculation regarding replacement midfielders. Widespread rumours have continued, though, surrounding the lack of depth in the Gunners' striker department...

In the 51st minute of Liverpool's pulsating 5-3 win over Stoke at the weekend, Steven Gerrard stepped up to the penalty spot with the opportunity to put the Reds back in front. The Potters had pegged the Merseysiders back from 2-0 down courtesy of a Peter Crouch header- Stoke's first headed goal of the season - and a long distance Charlie Adam strike.

While Costel Pantilimon didn't necessarily underperform during his spell in between the sticks, it was little surprise to see Hart reinstated after the Romanian shipped three during City's win over Arsenal. Yet, with the focus on the goalkeeping situation at the Etihad, much of the shine was taken off who should be the starting left-back for the one-time Premier League champions

In the absence of Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck has been charged with leading the Manchester United attack. The England international has been forced to deal with his doubters in the past, but he's been a leading light for the Premier League champions of late.

For some clubs, the frenzied start to 2014 may simply pass them by, but there are clubs that will most definitely use the transfer window to import fresh talent and export stale players.

Sunderland: More Than a Club

When Sunderland parted company with Paolo Di Canio on Sunday, many cited the Italian's style of management for his dismissal - falling out with big characters in the dressing room as well as publicly denouncing his players... a filthy cloud lurks above Sunderland as a club and how they are run above management level.

The likes of Alan Shearer, Alan Hanson, Mark Lawrenson, Garth Crooks and Martin Keown do little to help the dwindling cause, providing about as much entertaining and well balanced analysis as you'd expect from a John Terry lecture in to the merits of celibacy.

In the face of these apocalyptic predictions, Watford have flourished from mid-table mediocrity to a club skyrocketing toward the top-flight. And with such ascendancy, the benefits of the Pozzo empire have come sharp into focus.

The Hoopla About Hooper

The stats are impressive but much of the transfer hype is based around a striker who is able to do a lot more than just score goals. He is excellent at holding the ball up, linking with other players and positioning himself during counter-attacks.

There seemed to be a need for a striker at Arsenal and with rumours of Demba Ba signing for us very soon - which maybe true or false - this game may have changed Wenger's mind with regard to the striker's department.

Whatever happens, we are in store for one of the most important and exciting January transfer windows in Arsenal history. Let's hope it has an even bigger magnitude than the 2009 winter window where a certain Andrei Arshavin was signed on deadline day.

From what seemed to be a crisis (according to the negative fans and media) - quite frankly doesn't seem like one anymore (if it was one in the first place.) If anything, the season is well and truly bright and hopefully 2013 sees us get something more than a top four finish.

While the bookies strongly favour Bayern, Arsenal have every chance of surprising the Germans - especially in Europe where the form book is thrown out of the window and against a notably similar side.

MOTD is a programme with no unique selling point. The biggest issues generally boil down to how bad and overpaid the presenters are or Lawro's hideous choice of shirt. MOTD does little more than lull me into sleep - and that's a terrible failing by the BBC.
