Analysing Anfield: Liverpool's big midfield question, Virgil van Dijk's laboratory and dismissing the 'nerves' theory

It's the sixth episode of Analysing Anfield as Kristian Walsh and Josh Williams try to make some sense over what happened on Sunday afternoon, as a last-gasp victory over Tottenham sent Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League. The midfield trio is once more under the spotlight with explanations offered over why Jurgen Klopp likes it so much. There is a doting love letter to Virgil van Dijk and how he kept Moussa Sissoko quiet, while the team also try to quantify if the Reds are feeling the 'nerves' of a title race. Friday night's trip to Southampton is laced with caution and danger too as the Liverpool manager meets 'the Alpine Klopp', Ralph Hassenhuttl; the Austrian's style is assessed, as is the dead-ball ability of James Ward-Prowse, with a surprise midfield three named as best to deal with the Saints' intense pressing game. A must-listen!
