Three wins out of three to start the new Premier League season. Three points clear at the top. Five points clear of defending champions Manchester City. A club-record equalling run of 12 straight league victories stretching back to April. And all that makes for one very happy Post-Game podcast as we react to the impressive 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening with the view from the pressbox, the dugout and the stands. It's a podcast that starts with the verdict of our Chief Liverpool FC Writer Ian Doyle, is followed by Jurgen Klopp’s press conference in full, and features the thoughts of eight delighted Reds fans.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal will go into tonight's big match at Anfield boasting perfect starts to the new Premier League season. But it will be Liverpool who will be favourites to make it nine points from nine points – not least because of their recent record in games between the sides. The Reds have scored 23 goals in their last seven unbeaten matches against the Gunners – a remarkable run of form which culminated in the stunning 5-1 victory at Anfield in the final game of 2018. So will Arsenal be lambs to the slaughter once more? Or will they be a different beast after an impressive and unexpected summer spending spree which was headlined by the signing of Nicolas Pepe, who was linked with a move to Liverpool before his £72m arrival at the Emirates. To answer those questions, and many more, including the feeling in the Gunners fan base about their American owners, Paul Wheelock speaks to Tom Marshall-Bailey, who as well as being a big Gooner, can often be seen in the Echo office in his role as the publishing editor for Reach PLC Regionals.

Brought to you by your host Joe Rimmer, the panel discuss another busy week covering Liverpool, with plenty of talking points as he’s joined by the Echo’s chief LFC writer Ian Doyle, Dan Kay and Theo Squires. First on the agenda is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, having signed a contract extension after an impressive showing against Southampton last week. Sticking with the midfield and Naby Keita’s injury record is discussed after Jurgen Klopp spoke about the Guinean in his pre-match press conference. Looking ahead to the match, the panel, talk about the attacking threat Arsenal may pose as well as their defensive vulnerabilities before reminiscing on previous encounters between the two at Anfield down the years.

Jurgen Klopp has been addressing the media ahead of tomorrow's crunch clash with Arsenal in the Premier League at Anfield. The boss talks on a number of topics including: the Reds' start to the new season, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's return to the first team following a lengthy knee injury. On the former Arsenal midfielder, Klopp also talks about him signing his new contract through to 2023. There's talk on exits too, with Dejan Lovren mentioned, the difference in the transfer window with it still open across Europe despite closing in the Premier League. Plus there's the German's thoughts on counterpart Unai Emery joking that he didn't want his side to come up against the European champions. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
Top of the league, European Super Cup champions... but not everything is perfect at Liverpool right now. Kristian Walsh and Josh Williams delve deep into the debate over the Reds' new defensive structure and figure out three things: what is it, why has Jurgen Klopp implemented it, and if this is the right thing to do. The good and not so good of Chelsea and Southampton are touched upon, mainly related to that new-fangled high line, while there is also recognition of Roberto Firmino offering the 'glue' to everything his side does well in attack; Sadio Mane and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also recipients of high praise. There is also a focus on Arsenal, their new front three and whether imitation will be the sincerest form of flattery - or if it is the set-up which could make Liverpool vulnerable on Saturday. You can also watch this on YouTube, as well as the brand-new show, Analysing Anfield: Extra Time. Go to for the latest videos. For information regarding your data privacy, visit
Neil Fitzmaurice is here with the latest Poetry in Motion, with plenty to get through. Joined by Joe Rimmer and Theo Squires the guys get stuck in from the off as Arsenal visit Anfield on Saturday. First up is the idea Jurgen Klopp’s side are suffering from somewhat of a slow start to the new season, despite winning both Premier League games and the UEFA Super Cup! With no major summer arrivals, there’s still room for transfer talk with Xherdan Shaqiri this week having revealed his discontent at a lack of first team opportunities. Getting onto the weekend’s action, Fitzy poses the question as to what impact VAR could have, with Liverpool’s two Premier League games having passed without incident - while the threats posed by Arsenal’s frontline are also examined.

This Saturday, the Reds are back at home - as Arsenal visit for the tea-time kick-off. Two clubs steeped in history and a match that certainly is. From the title decider in 1989 - to last season’s 5-1 win, it’s a fixture that’s seen it all. This is a brand new offering here on Blood Red: Liverpool Moments Remembered - a special offering that we hope to bring you throughout the course of the season where we’ll be getting all nostalgic, looking back and reminiscing on a historic moment in the Reds’ history. In this edition, we head back almost 15 years to November 2004 - as Neil Mellor scored his first Premiership goal to slay all-conquering Arsenal. Here we talk about that goal, the pressures he felt trying to make a breakthrough into the first team as well as a look ahead to the weekend’s action, the title battle with Man City, VAR - and so much more besides.

It doesn't bear thinking about - life after Jurgen Klopp. But the man who has masterminded Liverpool's return to the summit of European football has cast doubt over whether he will remain at Anfield beyond his current contract, which expires in 2022. The club would like Klopp to stay longer than that but so far - publicly at least - the 52-year-old has been reluctant to commit his future beyond three summers' time. And the Champions League-winning boss this week even admitted, when accepting the coach of the year award from Sport Bild in his native Germany, that he could retire in 'two or three years time'. So little wonder, then, the latest episode of The Agenda is all about the Reds manager. Joe Rimmer and Theo Squires wonder whether Klopp's seven-year itch will continue or whether he can be convinced to build a Alex Ferguson-style dynasty with the Reds. Our boys also discuss the parallels between Klopp's own future and that of his greatest rival, just where he could go next, and just who could replace the great man if he does leave.

The focus of the latest episode of The Agenda is Liverpool's midfield. Jurgen Klopp has rotated his options in the centre of the park for three of the first four games of the season - and looks set to do so again for Saturday's visit of Arsenal to Anfield. So Kristian Walsh and Joel Rabinowitz sat down to deconstruct and analyse the players in the Reds' engine room. They ask whether there is enough creativity in there, whether Adam Lallana has a role to play, and what impact Naby Keita could have once he's fully fit.

It’s been a long week for our new chief Liverpool FC writer Ian Doyle, and for Dan Kay, after travelling to Istanbul and then Southampton to watch the Reds add to their trophy haul and maintain their perfect start to the season. But that does not stop the duo from guesting on our first Blood Red podcast of the week, hosted by Sean Bradbury. Top of the agenda is the man who scored three of Liverpool’s four goals against Chelsea and Southampton – Sadio Mane. Just how important has the Senegalese striker become for the Reds? And why shouldn’t he considered for the Ballon D’Or? Ian and Doyle answer those questions before tackling an even tougher one from Sean. Up next is Adrian’s Loris Karius-style howler on the south coast, the greatest Reds goals that never were, and why the slack defending that has blighted the opening three victories somewhat should not be a major cause for concern. And another must-listen podcast rounds off with why Liverpool fans should not laugh at Manchester City’s luck with VAR – or the Bayern Munich-bound Philippe Coutinho’s plight at Barcelona.  For information regarding your data privacy, visit

Never commented about a podcast before despite being a podcast addict from footy to true crime to random stuff, but think the comments below are slightly harsh to say the least, I love the difference of journo/fan aspect to contrast the other 4 Liverpool podcasts I listen regularly to, plus the amount put out and for free too has quenched my thirst for LFC content over the last year and I highly recommend this podcast. Allez allez allez

Terrible podcast all round - one lad doesn't watch any foreign, international or even other prem games!!!!! the Firmino discussion was laughable. Klopp takes him off to reserve his energy for the next game. The usual moan stand comment is a bit critical after listening to you lot.
