Forty days after the Champions League final - Liverpool are back! Back in style, too, as they swept aside Tranmere Rovers in their opening pre-season firnedly on a night that, according to our Blood Red panel, brimmed with possibilities. And what a panel we have, too, as host Sean Bradbury is joined by Caoimhe O'Neill and the returning Kristian Walsh. After reporting on her first Reds match for the ECHO, Caoimhe takes the lead on looking back on a 6-0 success in which a number of youngsters grabbed the opportunity to impress. No more so than Rhian Brewster, whose two goals and all-round performance had Caoimhe and Kristian purring, even if Jurgen Klopp understandably tried to play down the hype. Another teenager, Yasser Larouci, also caught the eye, and Caoimhe reckons, like Brewster, a path to the first team beckons. After a quick chat about the change in Divock Origi, that dovetails nicely into the impending arrival of Harvey Elliott, who watched the game from the stands, and what it says about Liverpool's recruitment strategy. Speaking of which, a section of Klopp's post-match press conference is analysed, which ends with those magic words, Mbappe2020, being uttered. Yeah, we went there. Enjoy.
