Liverpool v Everton: Best squad I've faced in Merseyside derby - Jurgen Klopp

The Reds are being talked up as Manchester City's closest challengers in the Premier League title race ahead of the season after Liverpool FC signed Alisson Becker, Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho and Naby Keita.

"It's a special city, Liverpool, and it's a special match".

Goalkeeper: I don't think there can be any debate over who will start in goal as Alisson is certain to keep his place between the sticks with Simon Mignolet once again named on the bench.

"I would like to know how much time they wasted tonight".

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

Everton will remain sixth with victory but have not taken three points from Anfield since Kevin Campbell scored in a 1-0 win in September 1999.

It is perhaps of no surprise then, that Jürgen Klopp has come in for some criticism for his team selection and style of play, particularly in the first half, as the game simply seemed to pass Liverpool by and it was nearly too late when James Milner slotted his penalty home in first half stoppage time. "He has the best squad as well", he explained. Richarlison, what a player he is, last year already (Theo) Walcott came in, this year Bernard came in, (Andre) Gomes, (Yerry) Mina.

"Since I'm in, Everton was always really busy, but it's now it's the best-tuned squad, 100 percent".

"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". It would be in all leagues in Europe a European team, I am sure.

Bush suffered from a form of Parkinson's disease and had been hospitalized several times in recent years. One of the youngest pilots in the Navy, he flew 58 missions off the carrier USS San Jacinto.

"In England it's quite hard, but the development and improvement is obvious".

"Analyse Everton and then tell me it will be an easy game", said the German. Yeah, perfect. Everything we need, so let's go out and fight for each other.

Klopp will be without suspended captain Jordan Henderson for the game, and has challenged the rest of the squad to step up in his absence.

"We went to Chelsea to win and proved we can win".

"Come on, it's a derby, we don't have to show a reaction".

The Brazilian forward has managed to hit the net only three times in 13 Premier League games to date this season and, in comparison to his 15 last term, Firmino's productivity has certainly dipped.

"Bringing one player in would change everything?" We work together and it's not down to one player or two players. "He's a very good guy and a very good player, but you play football to play against the big players, against [Lionel] Messi, against Neymar".

"Before we played against Man [United], we played well before the referee made, for me, a mistake".
