Recovered yet? James Pearce, Ian Doyle, Joe Rimmer and Connor Dunn have – well, just about – to record the latest edition of the brilliant Blood Red podcast which, unsurprisingly, focuses on Liverpool’s last-gasp 2-1 win over Tottenham and all the big talking points from a dramatic afternoon at Anfield. It was a win that moved the Reds back to the top of the Premier League and James, in particular, believes it was much more than just three points. The own-goal winner – which resulted in Joe jumping on Paul Gorst in the ECHO office and us reporting it late on the site – was undoubtedly lucky, and it’s not the first time this season that fortune has smiled on Jurgen Klopp’s side. But what does it say about this group of players that they keep getting the rub of the green? The panel discuss that before lavishing praise on Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson and explaining why Klopp started Fabinho on the bench – and how that decision came so close to backfiring on the Liverpool boss. There’s also talk of the Reds’ new wildcard, and just how Tottenham may now struggle to qualify for the Champions League, before talk turns to good old Neil Warnock and his controversial comments before Cardiff City’s match at Manchester City on Wednesday. Brexit gets a mention. Enjoy.
