Jurgen Klopp Following Liverpool Draw

Jurgen Klopp Following Liverpool Draw

Liverpool take on local rivals Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday at Goodison Park.

Murphy was asked: "Is the difference between City and Liverpool at the moment City's ability to open up tight defences with smart incisive passing and finishing in the box?"

Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, made his approach clear with the second-string side named in Liverpool's FA Cup defeat to Wolves back in January, but the German should be wise enough to avoid repeating that mistake in Europe, as it becomes a risky game if you start trying to pick and choose the matches you want to win or lose.

The Brazilian is now going through a poor run of form and has lost his place in the best XI at FC Barcelona.

Jurgen Klopp took an unusual approach to Liverpool's disappointing slump into second in the Premier League table after a 0-0 draw with Everton on Sunday.

"We take all the risks but you can not take more than 100 per cent risk, going nuts".

"I believe 100 per cent in our chances".

"We want the league and we will be disappointed if that does not happen but we can not forget the contender we face with Liverpool". It feels like there's more gears to go into.

If Liverpool go on to win the Premier League, then they will owe much of their success to Van Dijk's performances.

Mohamed Salah had the best chances of the game for Liverpool, twice finding himself with the opportunity to slot past Jordan Pickford. We take the risk, no doubt about that, but we can't just throw all our toys out of the pram, this is the Premier League, you will get punished.

"To me the Liverpool fans seem to be bottling it, not the players and Klopp", said Sutton.

Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk was named man of the match and he said: "It says a lot at the end that they are celebrating a 0-0".

"We need to constantly show stability - that's what we did again - and fight for the result". "We didn't score, that happens".

We point the finger at the front three when they don't win games, but I would look further than that.

Liverpool had three shots on target out of a total of 10 attempts during the 90 minutes and Everton boss Marco Silva was pleased with the way his side restricted the visitors.

The Toffees huffed and puffed throughout what was a scrappy match, played at a breakneck speed, but with little of the quality that you would associate with both teams on any other occasion.
