David James special: Saving grassroots football, running the rule over Alisson, and why he's tipping Arteta to be Arsenal's Klopp

David James speaks to Matt Addison about Alisson Becker, Jurgen Klopp and his old club Liverpool's defence of the Premier League. James explains why Thiago Alcantara has made him change his mind over who will win the title this season, plus why Liverpool's goalkeeper Alisson is so good. The former Reds number one also talks through what he has seen while visiting Melwood recently, what should happen next with Loris Karius, who remains a Liverpool player, and why he rates Mikel Arteta so highly ahead of the Arsenal manager bringing his side to Anfield tonight. James was speaking to the Liverpool ECHO as part of his new Switch Before Pitch campaign to help grassroots sport through the COVID-19 pandemic.
