Jurgen Klopp spoke about various issues ahead of the match against Everton.

According to Football 360, Klopp spoke about various issues, including the presence of new players for the match, in an interview ahead of the Merseyside derby. The Merseyside derby has always been one of the most heated matches, with a high number of yellow and red cards in the past. The Reds will face their city rivals with a record of just one loss in their last 25 meetings.

A sensitive game and a lack of experience

Liverpool will have all three of their new midfielders, Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Ryan Gravenberch, available for the match. When asked about the lack of experience of these players in a big game like the Merseyside derby, Klopp said: “Of course, it’s a special and high-pressure game and everyone needs to be at their best. Mac Allister played for Argentina at the World Cup. Szoboszlai recently played in a crucial match against Serbia, so they are used to high-pressure games.”

Everton’s recent improvement in results

Everton started the season very poorly, but they have achieved some decent results in recent weeks and won 3-0 against Bournemouth in their last match before the international break. Klopp said: “Dominic Calvert-Lewin is an important player for Everton. Doucouré is back to his best and the other players are also in good shape. They have some really good players in their squad.”

Klopp went on to say that Andrew Robertson had suffered a shoulder injury in the internationals and would need surgery. This means he will be out of action for a long time.

Injured and Suspended Players

Several key players from both teams are injured or suspended, which could affect the match lineup.

Based on the results of these 5 games


Liverpool’s results in their last 5 games have been mixed, with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss.

Their most recent game was a 2-2 draw away to Brighton & Hove Albion, which was a disappointing result considering they were leading 2-0 at half-time.

Before that, they had recorded three consecutive wins, beating Union St.Gilloise 2-0 in the Europa League group stage, Leicester City 3-1 in the EFL Cup third round, and West Ham United 3-1 in the Premier League.

However, their only loss in this sequence came in the Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur, where they were beaten 2-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Overall, Liverpool’s results in their last 5 games have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride, but they will be hoping to get back to winning ways in their next game.



Everton has won 2 games, lost 2 games, and drawn 1 game in their last 5 games. They beat AFC Bournemouth 3-0 and Brentford 1-3, but lost to Luton Town 1-2, Aston Villa 1-2, and Arsenal 0-1.

Overall, Everton has had a mixed start to the season with 2 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw in their 5 games. They have scored 8 goals and conceded 8 goals, which gives them a goal difference of 0.

It is important to note that Everton’s first game of the season was against AFC Bournemouth, which was their last game of the season. This is because the Premier League schedule is released in reverse order, so the last game of the previous season is the first game of the next season.

Despite their mixed start to the season, Everton fans will be hoping that they can improve their results in the coming weeks and months.
