Klopp is therefore expecting Everton to be extra motivated both on and off the pitch for the game at Goodison Park, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League from 11.30am.

"I think if Everton have some good results during the year and are going to play also for the title, I think then it's a match much bigger than it is right now", he said.

If Allardyce had harboured any plans to have his side frustrate City by defending robustly, any such hopes were shattered in only the fourth minute by Leroy Sané.

Liverpool have scored the highest number of goals away from home in the Premier League this season (37).

"That's how it is with all of them; if they are not 100 per cent fit, they can not be involved". The fact Everton were hugely outclassed added more salt to an already deep cut.

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. His presence inside the box has often been crucial, complementing the creative abilities of Rooney to find himself in pockets of spaces unmarked, and he will again be key against Liverpool. That's a good football team and they are very experienced in defence. Tom Davies would be the most likely option to shore things up, while Ashley Williams could return at the back after suspension.

While Liverpool will be looking to continue their winning ways after their midweek Champions League victory over Manchester City, Everton will be wanting to improve after their loss to City last Saturday, 31 March. After the match the Everton boss said: "They had three shots on target, we had two". Mohamed Salah had a groin issue and came off against Manchester City in the second half, so he is unlikely to be risked.

Idrissa Gana Gueye is available for selection for after recovering from a hamstring injury. We won the first half 3-0, and the second half was a nice draw.

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. The former Newcastle winger may not be the most creative midfield player in Liverpool's squad, but he offers a remarkable work ethic which helps him fit into the gegenpressing demands of his manager.

If Salah misses out, much will turn on Sadio Mané's performance for Liverpool.

Everton should see this as a big opportunity to end their derby hoodoo, as Liverpool will be understrength and have an eye on Tuesday.
