Liverpool's League Cup semi-final against Arsenal on Thursday is in doubt after Liverpool made a request for the game to be postponed, with more of their players being unavailable due to covid cases, injuries and illnesses. How likely is it that their request will be accepted and what impact could a postponement have on the competition?

We hear from Thomas Tuchel, who says Romelu Lukaku has apologised for his comments in an interview with Italian television and is back in the Chelsea squad for their semi-final against Tottenham after being dropped for the Liverpool game.

The guys discuss what they thought of Tuchel's handling of the situation and what Lukaku has to do now to get the Chelsea fans back on side.
