Jurgen Klopp expects "proper fight" in toughest Merseyside derby yet

Jurgen Klopp expects

While Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league, and stood two points behind leaders Manchester City ahead of the weekend fixtures, successive away defeats in their Champions League group at Red Star Belgrade and Paris Saint-Germain have raised questions about their trophy-winning potential.

Among many factors put forward for Liverpool's slight drop off in attacking prowess, fatigue seems one of the most obvious, with Klopp adamant that he will maintain strong bids for success in both the Premier and Champions Leagues. Yes, we could have scored...

It is perhaps of no surprise then, that Jürgen Klopp has come in for some criticism for his team selection and style of play, particularly in the first half, as the game simply seemed to pass Liverpool by and it was nearly too late when James Milner slotted his penalty home in first half stoppage time. "But no, I don't see any problems in midfield, to be honest". That is a completely normal thing.

Klopp also rejected out of hand the suggestion that Liverpool should enter the transfer market in January in search of a solution.

"He brought in players he wanted".

On Neymar's theatrics, he said: "You can't really be surprised by that".

They aren't fun, and as I realised previous year, I went through the entirety of secondary school without ever seeing Everton win a derby, and to be honest, as much as I want to believe it will, I can't see that changing for a while.

"One player doesn't change everything".

"I would like to know how much time they wasted tonight".

"We've been working very hard since day one under the manager and are putting together some very good results".

Klopp is yet to suffer defeat to the Reds' city rivals since arriving in 2015, with four wins and two draws in six games, but has lost one and drawn one in two meetings with Silva.

"But I get constantly confronted with the question - something is missing".

"We have to make sure as a club we create an atmosphere so exceptional it will make it a little bit easier for the players to come into it 100% in a fighting mood".

"Everton can't be in any better shape, but I think it's a step too far to try and win at Liverpool".
