Jürgen Klopp: no problems in Liverpool midfield

Jurgen Klopp has overseen three wins and two draws against Everton

Speaking ahead of the Merseyside derby against Everton, Klopp was asked if a disconnect has developed this term between a more conservative approach in midfield, and Liverpool's previously unstoppable frontline.

A further talking point from the match was generated by Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp's comments post-game. I think it's probably the game Liverpool need after the mid-week disappointment in the Champions League. How can I know what people make of that?

"You can not make anything with these results in the past".

"It was a long time ago, we need to look forward and we need to give the new players a bit of a taste of what it's like to win one of these games, and the fans as well", Coleman said.

"He has the best squad".

The Reds will be huge favourites though, with Klopp emphasising his readiness for a "different derby" immediately after Wednesday's Champions League defeat in Paris.

"He has the best squad", Klopp said.

"One or two years ago (Wayne) Rooney came back, (Gylfi) Sigurdsson came, they said they could not play because of lack of speed, but everything is there". I'm a defender and it's down to the team.

"The improvement of Everton is obvious".

"I play football to play against the biggest players in the world and I came to England to play against the best strikers because, for me, the best football is in the Premier League".

"Manchester City are a special team, and if you're Liverpool you've got to assume that City are just going to keep winning game after game. But no, I don't see any problems in midfield, to be honest". I'm hoping they're firing on all cylinders.

"For us the most important thing is the present, and is the future". Respect, yes, but we don't change anything in our way.

In order for the Reds to reach the last 16, they must beat group-leaders Napoli at Anfield in two weeks' time.

They have a fighter's chance of a first win there this century.

That means Walcott must be on top of his game defensively - putting in a much improved shift than his Old Trafford effort last month - otherwise Marco Silva's side will be overrun. Nobody has to tell you players want to be a part of these derbies before they join the club.

'A lot of teams also play counter-attack against us. That's what we want to use, and of course the crowd at Anfield.
