So the race for the Premier League remains in Manchester City’s hands after they beat Manchester United in the derby at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. But if you’re thinking our latest Blood Red podcast, hosted by Sam Carroll and featuring Caoimhe O’Neill, Sean Bradbury and (over the phone) our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce, is a downbeat one, then think again. After a brutal takedown of a a ‘pitifully poor’ United side, James argues you still wouldn’t swap City’s final three fixtures for the Reds’, while Sean thinks scheduling could aid Jurgen Klopp’s side, and Caoimhe offers a memorable moment from City’s past that also proves all hope is not lost. But if Pep Guardiola’s men do defend their title, James is supremely confident that this Liverpool team are going to be challenging for the top honours for the years to come, and explains why. Talk then turns to the PFA Team of the Year, and the impending announcement that Virgil van Dijk has been named PFA Player of the Year, and why two Reds players can feel hard done by that they’ve not also been honoured by their fellow pros – especially when Paul Pogba has. James also comments on tonight’s FA Youth Cup final (a full preview with him can be listened to HERE) before heading off to Klopp’s pre-Huddersfield Town press conference at Melwood. That leaves Sam, Caoimhe and Sean to look ahead to the visit of Huddersfield to Anfield, debate the changes the Reds could and should make, as well as give their nominations for the club’s player of the year, young player of the year and goal of the season. Enjoy.
