It's episode four of our brilliant new tactics podcast and with host Kristian Walsh back from a belting week in Munich, he rejoins Josh Williams for an in-depth look into all the big talking points at Liverpool. After briefly discussing the brilliant win over Bayern and Jurgen Klopp's remarkable European knockout record with the Reds, talk turns to the victory over Fulham, with the duo explaining why the Cottagers' attempts to block off the centre of the pitch only led to opportunities elsewhere. Sadio Mane was the beneficiary of that as he made it 11 goals in his last 11 games and 20 for the season. Did anyone see this form coming? And can Mane keep it up? Josh delves into that and, along with Kristian, ask whether the Senegalese should be doing more than 'just' score. They also look at Mohamed Salah's contribution and debunk some of the myths surrounding the player who, according to the stats, remains Liverpool's attacking king. Also on the agenda is James Milner, Gini Wijnaldum and the Reds' lack of a pass-master, as well as the return of the 'special' Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and why the latter is not the answer to the Klopp's No 10 conundrum, but could be the key in big matches like against Tottenham next time out. Enjoy.
