'I don't think you can disagree with the penalty - Lovren pushed Calvert-Lewin over'.

"I learned very early on that the best way to approach derby matches - games against great rivals - is to embrace what comes with it, not to ignore it".

Klopp was visibly furious after Liverpool conceded an equaliser from the penalty spot late on in Sunday's Merseyside derby. Jurgen Klopp seems to have found a temporary solution to plug the holes in the Reds' defence and the same is starting to reflect in their results.

Klopp also defended his decision to substitute top scorer Salah with his side only one goal to the good at the time he made the change.

"Twenty-one days, seven games".

Everton, meanwhile, had seen an immediate improvement in their performances following the appointment of Sam Allardyce at the helm last week, with the Toffees having notched 9 goals and conceded none in their last 3 outings versus West Ham, Huddersfield and Apollon Limassol. "You are all right", he said before continuing the feisty exchange which is just a tad uncomfortable to watch.

There are no injuries up ahead and the quartet of Sadio Mane, Coutinho, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino should all start on Sunday. The Met Office is warning that eight inches of snow could fall in parts of Manchester from 4am to 6pm.

"I cannot believe that [Pawson], in a game like this, when only one team is trying over 95 minutes to do everything to win it, opened the door for them like this".

The Arsenal legend has indicated that the derby has come too early for Allardyce as Everton manager.

"Because of their Europa League tie on Thursday, Allardyce will not have had much time to train with his squad, Everton ship a lot of goals and boy do Liverpool like scoring them at the moment", he said on the BBC Sport website.

Everton are currently 10th in the table going into the game after two wins in a row moved them away from the relegation zone.
