Liverpool Have To Deliver Against Everton, Insists Jurgen Klopp

There's an opportunity to get one over on Liverpool here, though, especially if Klopp does leave a number of big guns out with the second leg against City in mind.

Ashley Williams is back from a ban but Eliaquim Mangala, James McCarthy, Mason Holgate and Gylfi Sigurdsson remain injured.

The Liverpool defence gave their all during the impressive 3-0 victory over Manchester City on Wednesday night so I think Klopp will be tempted to rest a couple of players.

Liverpool are now on their longest ever unbeaten run in 16 games (wins 8 draws 8) against Everton in all competitions.

Captain Jordan Henderson, though, is suspended for Tuesday's match and will nearly certainly start as part of a midfield trio in Klopp's favoured 4-3-3.

"Really the approach has to be, like it was then, about us getting better at nullifying their attacking options because the goal scoring ability of Liverpool is their main strength and we have to snuff that out".

'We have tried everything to make Mo Salah available.

"Yes of course they need some new players in the team", Kanchelskis said, when asked if Wilshere and Jones would be good signings at Everton.

"We're the home team, we have to be on the front foot".

"We play again on Saturday at 12:30 and if you want to see games like this then the Premier League have to think about it", he said.

Defeat would see Sam Allardyce become only the second manager to lose 200 Premier League matches (after Harry Redknapp, who has been beaten 238 times in the competition). Yet with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich widely expected to make up the other semi-finalists, Klopp will be aware his team would be the outsiders to win the trophy. You create the stir but for me that's only a small minority.

"I'd hope Klopp will still go as strong as he can as Everton will be up for this".

It is more than seven years and 16 matches since the blue half of the city was able to celebrate victory over their closest rivals, with Liverpool winning four of the last five encounters. None of them are easy, particularly in preparation, it's always hard.

"It's not that it's something really important, football is just what we make it". We don't need to be daft and go there and be open, but we have to go with a plan.

"We do the job and people have the dreams, expectations and ambitions".

If Liverpool win on Saturday, it will be the first time since 1989-90 they will have managed to win 10+ away games in consecutive top-flight seasons. We're confident but we know how quickly things can change in the Premier League. I know they will be motivated for this game. They had won their last three home games before their 3-1 loss to leaders Manchester City last weekend. Theo Walcott and Yannick Bolasie will be the wide men providing a pacy outlet on the flanks, with Cenk Tosun leading the line for the hosts.
