Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool still have to develop

Klopp Firmino opens up 5,000 gaps for Sigurdsson looking forward to derby day
| 01 December, 2018, 11:14

Everton playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson says he is looking forward to Sunday's clash at Anfield with Liverpool which he knows will be a tough test for the Blues.

Their optimism stands in contrast to the first real signs of problems in Klopp's camp this season.

Liverpool's three-man midfield of Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and James Milner came in for widespread criticism following the 2-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Liverpool FC have only dropped points in stalemates with Arsenal, Chelsea FC and Manchester City in their pursuit of a first Premier League title. Are they ready? We will see, they have to prove it.

Mohamed Salah should retain his position in the attack while Sadio Mane is also set to start against the Toffees and Klopp will be looking to his attacking duo for some inspiration this weekend.

The Swiss worldwide started in Liverpool's 3-0 win against Watford on Saturday and is starting to see regular game time under Klopp.


Reds defender Virgil van Dijk is at a loss to explain Liverpool's issues of late, but he refuses to panic. "I don't think Everton will have a go at Liverpool, but if they defend for 95 minutes they're not going to keep a clean sheet". "It can happen. But the frustrating thing is how we conceded the goals and then it's always hard to come back", he said. It is good that we won these games or got results from these games, the most exciting one was the late victor of Sadio (Mane) at Everton - that felt unbelievable.

With their prospects of reaching the Champions League last 16 uncertain, Liverpool FC will be hoping to make a statement against Everton at Anfield.

Following a disappointing time last season, in which Everton struggled through three different managers in Ronald Koeman, caretaker David Unsworth and then Sam Allardyce, Silva finally appears to have discovered a winning formula at Goodison Park.

Silva's side will be boosted by their recent displays in the league.

"I can't say to the boys, 'We've fixed things at the back but we're not doing enough offensively.' That would be insane".
