While Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league, and stood two points behind leaders Manchester City ahead of the weekend fixtures, successive away defeats in their Champions League group at Red Star Belgrade and Paris Saint-Germain have raised questions about their trophy-winning potential.

With Joe Gomez alongside the Dutchman at centre half, Liverpool have conceded just 5 goals in the top flight this season - a new club record after 13 matches. "Sorry, I didn't see that. I don't see any problems in midfield".

"He has the best squad".

On the last two occasions the Reds have played on December 2, they scored five at Brighton and Hove Albion in the league (2017) and six at Southampton in a League Cup tie in 2015. 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".

"Bringing one player in would change everything?" he said. But everything is there.

Liverpool have been encouraged in their bid for Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrovic after they were told by former player John Aldridge that he will be a good addition to the team. "The development and improvement is obvious".

Jurgen Klopp must lift Liverpool's shattered spirits as the Reds aim to bounce back from their latest European setback in a crucial Merseyside derby against resurgent Everton on Sunday (Dec 1). "And in the best case, against the same opponent again".

"We need to turn up on Sunday and do our talking on the pitch". We are used to that.

"That's where we'll need our squad players if we're going to be successful. And if you do get past them, you've still got to beat Alisson in goal - and there aren't too many who manage that".

"That's what we want to use, and of course the crowd as well, Anfield as well".

"It's 4:15 p.m. kick-off, it will be almost dark, no, it'll be dark already?"

And after more comfortable clashes with the Blues in recent years, Klopp is expecting the toughest derby yet. "It will be a proper football game".
