Gus Poyet is our special guest on this week's show

Merse and Fenners are joined by Brighton manager and former Chelsea star Gus Poyet on this week's The Fantasy Football Club.

The ex-Uruguay midfielder, 45, was part of the Real Zaragoza side that beat Arsenal in the 1995 Cup Winners' Cup final courtesy of 'that' goal from Nayim, and arrived at Chelsea two years later.

He quickly became a cult hero at Stamford Bridge with his industrious style and eye for goal, enjoying a fruitful four-year spell with the Blues before jumping ship to Tottenham, where he ended his playing days in 2004.

Coaching beckoned for Poyet, who took assistant roles at Swindon, Leeds and Tottenham before landing himself the number one job at Brighton, where he continues to impress on a relatively modest budget.

Poyet scored of the most iconic goals in Chelsea's history in 1999 - racing on to a precision scoop from Gianfranco Zola and producing a scissor-kick volley that sent the Bridge wild - and, fittingly, it is the diminutive Italian who will be taking us through what proves to be a fascinating One2Eleven.

There'll also be all the usual TFFC fare, as Sheffield Wednesday chance their arms (or feet) at the Two-Footed Corner Challenge.

So join us on The Fantasy Football Club at 10pm, Friday on Sky Sports 1 HD.
