    Jurgen Klopp make bold claim about derby draw at Goodison Park

    Jurgen Klopp has lauded his players despite they were held to a goalless draw away to Everton


    Klopp excited with his side performance at the derby
    The Liverpool manager describes his team performance at the derby as the most matured since his reign at the club.

    Klopp has a huge challenge ahead as Liverpool trip to the Etihad to lock horns with Manchester City for the return leg of the Champion League quarter finals on Tuesday. 

    In the goalless draw with Everton Klopp was without the likes of Mohamed Salah, Emre Can and Andrew Robertson, with Roberto Firmino, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Trent Alexander-Arnold all left on the bench alongside players called up from the Academy

    There were first starts of the season for Nathaniel Clyne and Danny Ings, and rare appearances from the start for Ragnar Klavan and Dominic Solanke.


    “It was a good performance, not brilliant, but probably the most mature since I came here,” he said after the match.

    “To come here, play football, get a result, not get involved in any fights, it's clear everybody spoke all week about Everton not winning for I don't know how long, that we then deliver a game like this is a big compliment to my team.

    “But we won't always be like this, that's for sure.”

    "I have to be happy, I take the result,” he said.

    “I think it is a fair result, we were better over most of the game and Everton had in the last few minutes a few very exciting moments in our box.

    “That's never a good sign. Until then we controlled the game. We played the game we wanted to play and were not here to play a wild derby. That wouldn't make sense.

    “It was quite difficult for Everton to get the game they wanted, challenges and stuff like that.


    “I have to look at when Ragnar Klavan last played left-back, I have no clue, probably before he came to Germany!"
