Our focus is on the derby: Klopp

Salah needs just one more goal to become the first African to reach the 30-goal mark in the history of the Premier League, and the Reds are one of the most electric teams in the English top-flight with Salah on the pitch.

We say it's a joke - and Allardyce had a good old laugh at it - but he's not wrong.

With a mammoth second leg tie against Manchester City next week in the Champions League, it remains to be seen whether Jurgen Klopp will field a full-strength side. With Liverpool facing Manchester City in the Champions League mid-week and the top four all but wrapped up, Sam Allardyce's side will be hoping to face a rotated Liverpool team on Saturday.

"The only way to work in this job is to be focused on the next game and that is Everton". But Jurgen has a very strong squad and they haven't let him down all season. "If Sparta [Rotterdam] are going to play for the title then that will be the biggest game - it depends how both teams are doing".

If Liverpool win on Saturday, it will be the first time since 1989-90 they will have managed to win 10+ away games in consecutive top-flight seasons.

I'm sure Klopp would ideally like to rest more of his key men but this is still an important game and he doesn't really have the required quality on the bench to come in.

Emre Can is also a doubt, while Joel Matip, Adam Lallana, Joe Gomez and Ragnar Klavan are all injured. "We need some new fresh blood in the squad". The derby has also been hugely one-sided in recent times, with Everton winning just one of the last 22 league meetings between the sides. They are altogether except Sigurdsson.

"They are really talented boys and I am always ready for using them but in the right games and the right moment and we will see when that happens", he added. As part of a defence which kept a clean sheet which could prove massively beneficial in the return leg, this was a professional performance by the Reds who deserved the impressive scoreline against a team who were expecting to progress further in this competition.

"Very, very loud. They break the decibel records", says Tosun proudly. Each Evertonian thinks at Goodison there must be a few extra percent of desire and stuff like that.

Ashley Williams will be available after serving a suspension and Idrissa Gana Gueye has recovered from his hamstring injury. "I will not guarantee it but it doesn't look too bad he could start tomorrow", said the Reds boss. We will be ready for hard challenges - 100 per cent.
