Stephen Warnock joins Gareth Roberts and Paul Cope to discuss the knock on effects of Liverpool’s win over Manchester City and the role the atmosphere can play on a crowd and whether or not that might have had knock on effects on Manchester City performance and selection around Raheem Sterling.

There is a conversation about creating habits around the pitch in pre-season and putting them into action, preparation for specific players, such as Trent Alexander-Arnold on Leroy Sane. Stephen talks at length about how tough it has been for Trent in recent weeks dealing with brilliant performances and how he can’t get it right every game and his development curve. The idea of a player establishing himself who kicks on after one performance is also a topic of conversation.

Planning for opposition strengths and weaknesses and how it works for Liverpool during this season also comes up through this brilliant relaxed chat with a senior pro who has seen it all.
