Every week feels big for table-topping Liverpool at the moment, but this week, perhaps more than any other in this unforgettable season, could be the biggest yet. However, that has less to do with the visit of already-relegated Huddersfield Town to Anfield, and more about second-placed Manchester City’s game in hand at – of all places – Manchester United. Little wonder, then, that the latest episode of the brilliant Allez Les Rouges podcast shines the spotlight on the crucial Old Trafford encounter. But only after host Peter Hooton and regular guests Kieth Culvin, Ste Monaghan and John Nicolson look back on Liverpool’s wins at home and abroad since their last podcast, and what impressed them the most. The quartet also debate the double-standards over Mohamed Salah before you hear Peter’s interview with journalist and Manchester United supporter Andy Mitten. Andy, who has been the editor of the United We Stand fanzine since 1989, talks Wednesday’s massive derby match, what it will mean if United help hand Liverpool the title, and the rivalry and similarities between the two most successful clubs in English football. Andy, who spends a lot of his time in Barcelona, also explains why fans of the Spanish champions are fearful of Liverpool, as well as giving an interesting story about Jurgen Klopp. Peter, Kieth, Ste and John then discuss what’s just been said, give their own take on United v City, including why Everton could have gone and done their Merseyside neighbours a favour, before previewing Huddersfield and Barcelona. Enjoy.
