Liverpool 'trying everything' to get Salah fit for Everton - Klopp

Liverpool 'trying everything' to get Salah fit for Everton - Klopp

Mohamed Salah will miss Saturday's Merseyside derby after limping out of Liverpool's Champions League victory over Manchester City on Wednesday. "Until Farhad rings me up and says I'm not wanted I'll carry on doing my job". They were scared, our players, by their (City's) talents and the fluency of their football.

With the top four all-but secure for the Reds, and mid-table obscurity the height of the Toffees' ambitions this season, there's only bragging rights at stake - though that's usually more than enough for a feisty affair between these two. "We need to be ready for that 100%". Not that it made any difference (to the outcome).

Klopp is nearly certain to name a changed team with one eye towards Tuesday's return leg against the Citizens but Allardyce isn't fully banking on it. Everyone would have been predicting we would lose by four, five or six.

"We have already a hard situation, everyone knows that".

"What we have to do is do that over 90 minutes". Without the goals of Salah to elevate them on Saturday, Liverpool's team ethos will be as important as ever in the face of what's likely to be a stubbornly unadventurous Everton side.

And "Big Sam" only alienated fans further with his comments today. When the supporters have that positive energy, it always transfers on to the players, so they have a big part to play.

On that note, here are several stats that suggest Liverpool will not be so complacent and will head into Goodison Park on the front foot. Michael unfortunately headed it over the bar.




"It's much like what we did at Anfield first and then making sure we maximise possession - we were pleased to get a draw there".

Salah's goals have earned his team 15 Premier League points - the highest tally in the top flight this season.

"If we had to play Liverpool in a derby match it's a good time to do that in between the two Champions League games".

"When they told me I was coming up for the game I asked if I needed to bring my boots!"

"I would not guarantee it but it doesn't look too bad that he could start tomorrow". Still there are 23 hours to go so let's see what happens.

In this day an age where especially at elite levels of football where there are very few locals playing in he derby, it's refreshing to hear players speak so effusively about derby day. But it's there for us all to see.

The Toffees were torn apart in the first half to end this game as a contest by half-time.
