Jürgen Klopp: no problems in Liverpool midfield

Adjust Comment Print

The last three Everton managers to visit Anfield in the Premier League - Roberto Martinez, Ronald Koeman and Sam Allardyce - left with, respectively, a 4-0 defeat, a 3-1 defeat and a 1-1 draw.

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.

"But to be honest for me it is quite odd". Yes, we could have scored... That is a completely normal thing. "Liverpool have to see this as three points and go after them".

"I think all the boys have been looking forward to the derby since the start of the season and that feeling has grown with the performances we have been putting together over the past couple of months", said the Iceland star. That would be insane.

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

"I want them to play the match to win".

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

"One player doesn't change everything".

The energetic, fast, thrilling brand of football that we all loved to see last season seems like a distant memory, with only the opening day victory over West Ham and September's Anfield triumph over PSG in the reverse fixture some of the only displays of this style this season.

"If you would have let us play a game immediately after the game on Wednesday, we would have played", Klopp said.

"But I get constantly confronted with the question - something is missing. We want to make it a good one and we will be ready for the challenge".

"It's good we have this one day more and it is not Wednesday - Saturday because that would be really hard".

"Creating is not a problem". I've had it the other way when we've been hunted down, where you expected a team to drop points somewhere and they didn't, and I expected us to be a few points in front and we're not.

Liverpool have played 18 games in both competitions to date, with Firmino and Mohamed Salah having featured in every one of them.
