AFTER a week that has left us all in a whirl, it's our CityTalk Show with Neil Atkinson, Mike Girling, Paul Duhaney and Ben Mullane.

First off, it's looking back to the gut-wrenching injury-time loss in Villarreal. Did Liverpool commit to a game plan or did they get stuck between the ideas of keeping it at 0-0 and nicking an away goal?

The Reds could have, and should have, shut it down on 90 and left Spain with a draw – what went wrong?

And the substitutions on the night – did Jürgen Klopp make the wrong calls? His hand was forced with Philippe Coutinho but was Jordon Ibe the right replacement? And why didn't we see a fit and firing Daniel Sturridge on the pitch at some point?

The panel also discuss what they made of Villarreal – should we fear the La Liga side in the second leg? What can the Reds do differently at Anfield?

From there it is onto Spurs. How does Paul feel about his club seemingly blowing a great opportunity to win the title? Where do they go from here?

Finally, attention turns to Sunday and the trip to Swansea City. The Welshmen have shipped seven in two games while Liverpool have the second leg of a European semi-final on the horizon – how does this one pan out?

All this and more on The Anfield Wrap on CityTalk.
