Klopp convinced of Liverpool success

"If they want to help, you can not do that, you should not do that".

Sunday's run-out poses as the ideal opportunity to take advantage of some uncertainty at City after their Champions League exit and build some momentum by earning a third consecutive Premier League win.

Liverpool drew 1-1 with Manchester City on Sunday after Ronald Koeman's Everton made it four wins from their past six outings with a 4-0 victory over Hull City. When teams defend deep sometimes they have more problems but they are a top team, he is a top trainer.

"They are good because Emre likes to be here".

Meanwhile, Klopp has no concerns about the form of Philippe Coutinho despite the Brazilian struggling in the second half of the season. Until the final year starts, there are no problems in this moment.

His only goal in the dozen matches he has played since coming back was a consolation effort in the shock 3-1 defeat at Leicester.

The Brazilian missed last weekend's win over Burnley but returns to Jürgen Klopp's starting line-up in place of Divock Origi.

"Of course the way we play is completely different, I am Catalan and he is German so the influence is completely different". Because we had injuries we had a few games that cost us energy.

"There are always steps in this direction".

"He's in a really good way". Jurgen will be hoping that Daniel Sturridge, 27, and Roberto Firmino, 25, can beat the men who make the difference in this game as they both have the energy and skills to hurt City.

Croatia worldwide Dejan Lovren has been declared fit and may be given a starting place alongside Joel Matip at centre-back.
