So this is the calm before the storm. Liverpool resume their Premier League title challenge on Sunday when they welcome Chelsea to Anfield in what could be a match that makes or breaks their chances of pipping Manchester City to top spot. But according to the latest Allez Les Rouges podcast panel, there is no need for concern. Host Peter Hooton is joined by Accrington Stanley manager – and big Red – John Coleman, regular guest Kieth Culvin and the ‘James Milner’ of our podcasts, Dan Kay, and all four are confident Jurgen Klopp’s side can get the job done. John, who knows a thing or too, believes that Liverpool are now in the ‘zone’ that all players and teams aspire to get into, which was best summed up by the nature of the win at Southampton. That game is discussed, as is the more straightforward Champions League quarter-final first-leg victory over Porto, as talk turns to a possible dream double, before it turns back to the showdown with Chelsea. In a quirk of fate, given what happened almost exactly five years ago, City travel to Crystal Palace immediately before the Reds host Maurizio Sarri’s side, and Dan for one, hopes a few ghosts will be exorcised. Also up for debate is the key role Joel Matip is playing – but not in defence – and whether Sunday could be the time for a change at full-back, before a must-listen podcast rounds off with details about the Sean Cox charity match.
