ROB Gutmann is joined by John Gibbons, Craig Rimmer and Ian Salmon to preview the biggest game of the season for Liverpool – the second leg of the Europa League semi-final with Villarreal.
First up is the mood around the club – a lot has changed since Everton were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield, with a draw and two defeats following. Have the Reds lost momentum at just the wrong time?
There are issues around fitness and form also. Divock Origi is increasingly feeling like a big miss for Jürgen Klopp while elsewhere Roberto Firmino, Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho appear to have gone off the boil in recent games. Who now can emerge as Liverpool’s match-winner when we need it most?
Rob also dares to look on the dark side – how does this season look should the unthinkable happen on Thursday and we go out? On the flip side, how good is it if we go all the way and roll ’em over in Switzerland?
Can another big Anfield welcome for the players lift the lads and what can we expect from Villarreal? What – if anything – did we learn about the Yellow Submarine last week and how can Klopp sink the thing?
It’s all the build up you’ll need to another big European night at Anfield.
