JK on ‘special’ Merseyside derby and Everton threat

Jürgen Klopp cannot wait to contest another Merseyside derby when Liverpool host Everton on Saturday, but knows his players must find a balance between control and aggression if they are to emerge victorious.

The German has led the Reds to three points in both of his meetings with the Toffees thus far – a 4-0 thrashing at Anfield last April and a last-gasp win at Goodison Park earlier this season.

Ahead of his third taste of this famous derby, Klopp has insisted he knows all about what is at stake in its 228th staging.

However, he also acknowledged that Liverpool can afford to get little wrong when they come up against an Everton side who have lost just one of their last nine outings in the Premier League.

Read on for the manager’s full take on tomorrow’s opposition and the fixture itself.

What makes the Merseyside derby so special?

“Two big clubs in one city, that’s easy, two historical big clubs. There are not a lot of cities around the world where two clubs with this size and importance for the country are in one city and so that’s special. Then only – how far is it? – 900 yards between the stadiums, that’s another special thing. These are the games you are of course really looking forward to and that’s what I do.”
