How is the heart rate? Settled down now? Wow, this Liverpool just don't know when to quit. On the back of what happened in midweek at Barcelona, and after Mohamed Salah was stretchered off to (potentially) join Roberto Firmino on the sidelines, they could so easily have dropped points and effectively handed the Premier League title to Manchester City. But instead they dug in and, thanks to a goal from super-sub Divock Origi that could be even more important than his derby winner in December, they secured a vital 3-2 victory at Rafa Benitez's spirited Newcastle United side. It was a victory that moved Jurgen Klopp's relentless Reds back to the top of the table going into the final week of this incredible campaign. And to reflect on it, we have a bumper Post-Game podcast for you. It starts, as always, with the definitive verdict of our Liverpool FC correspondent James Pearce, includes every word of Klopp's press conference after the match, including fitness updates on Salah and Firmino, and also features seven of our regular callers into the show as well as a load more made-up - if emotionally drained - Liverpool fans in the form of the messages they have been leaving on our Blood Red podcast Facebook group page.
