Rank #1: Free Podcast: Rampant Liverpool Dismantle Wenger's Sorry Arsenal

Podcast cover
Read more

A fantastic Liverpool performance against Arsenal has, in the eyes of the mainstream media become a story about Arsenal rather than one about the Mighty Reds. Not on The Anfield Wrap. Here we wax lyrical about Jurgen Klopp's side and their dominance over their North London opponents in all areas of the pitch.

The front three get their deserved praise but the back line and midfield won their battles. It was a team performance from the side and one which announced themselves as genuine contenders for this season's title.

Joining Neil Atkinson are Rob Gutmann, Philippa Smallwood and Dan Morgan to talk about the outstanding display of the season so far.

Every week The Anfield Wrap takes a long look at Liverpool's weekend game and wonders about the approach from The Reds and their opponents. This week though we are looking ahead, imagining we are in the shoes of Jurgen Klopp and Zinedine Zidane and wondering what the pair will be contemplating before this Champions League Final.

Klopp has fewer choices; his side plays in his image and he has been loathe to change set up through the season. Zidane has selection headaches but also has selection opportunities.

This is a game which looks on paper to demonstrate the Review's consistent maxim that your greatest strengths can be your greatest weaknesses. We discuss that in the context of both sides set ups and focus on Modric and Kroos.

Sean Rogers and Paul Cope join Neil Atkinson to be excited about everything in store for us on Saturday night.
