So, Liverpool beat Arsenal. Now comes a really difficult game, as some would have you believe, but if Jürgen Klopp’s team do not win this there will be some serious head scratching. Sean Dyche’s side will defend in numbers but have not won away this season in any competition. Their best result was October’s goalless draw at Old Trafford; a low was losing at Watford.

But they are determined to get there for an FA Cup semi-final and to move closer to the first trophy of the Mauricio Pochettino era.

• ‘I want to offer them the potential to be first-team players here’• Manager angry with himself for late celebration in Everton winMauricio Pochettino has spelt out a key aspect of his managerial approach – that he would rather keep young players and work with them in training than loan them out to play at other clubs.Preparing for Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final at home to Millwall, the Tottenham Hotspur manager was reminded Harry Kane was sent to The Den as an 18-year-old in 2011-12.

Left unchallenged at the club the manager continues to survive only because of former glories and careful husbandryThe football club Arsène Wenger might have managed – and still might – did him a favour this week. Just 24 hours after his Arsenal team stumbled out of the Champions League, defeated 10-2 on aggregate by Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain stole the headlines by crumbling in the face of a Barcelona assault that amounted to one of the greatest sporting comebacks of modern times.By comparison with that feat of willpower and dark arts, the story of Arsenal’s surrender faded into relative insignificance and Wenger’s bitter criticisms of the referee will now be of interest only to the authorities. But they should refrain from punishing him. He is already being punished enough...
