Kelly Cates is joined by former Liverpool and Everton midfielder Don Hutchison and The Athletic reporter Adam Crafton.

Liverpool’s League Cup semi-final against Arsenal on Thursday is in doubt after Liverpool made a request for the game to be postponed, with more of their players being unavailable due to covid cases, injuries and illnesses. How likely is it that their request will be accepted and what impact could a postponement have on the competition?

We hear from Thomas Tuchel, who says Romelu Lukaku has apologised for his comments in an interview with Italian television and is back in the Chelsea squad for their semi-final against Tottenham after being dropped for the Liverpool game.

The guys discuss what they thought of Tuchel’s handling of the situation and what Lukaku has to do now to get the Chelsea fans back on side.

Southampton have new owners after Sport Republic became the major stakeholders at the club. Southampton chief executive Martin Semmens explains what they hope to achieve together and BBC Radio Solent sports editor Adam Blackmore drops by to tell us whether the change will make Southampton more competitive in the transfer market, how the move will benefit their academy development and what it means for Ralph Hassenhuttl’s future.
