Klopp on Everton draw: It's not the best day in my life

Klopp on Everton draw: It's not the best day in my life

Everton failed to break their hoodoo against Liverpool despite manager Jurgen Klopp naming a much-changed side with their eyes on finishing the job against Manchester City in the Champions League.

There have been countless times this season where the former England worldwide has been off the pace and not fit enough to keep up with the rigours of the modern day game - and the Liverpool game was just another example of that.

Karius, who faces constant speculation that Liverpool will replace him in the summer, said he did not feel under pressure to keep his place. Hitting thumbs down is a vote to push that player closer to the bottom. We controlled the game for around 60 minutes, then everything got a bit emotional.

We had our chances on the other side, but I really thought we did well in specific moments - passing and runs with a team which was changed in five positions, especially on the left side but in the first half it was really good.

Liverpool striker Danny Ings was handed his first start as Juergen Klopp named a stronger lineup than anticipated.

"I only think about doing my job for the team".

When asked about his verdict on the result, the Reds shot-stopper expressed,"I thought we did really well first, the start of the second half as well". So, a point, one point more, all OK.

Pickford added: "I didn't know Gareth was there".

Liverpool started with Ragnar Klavan out of position at left-back, yet the Icelandic worldwide was barely tested throughout the contest.

The visitors were quicker out of the blocks for the second half and enjoyed the majority of possession but failed to get in a meaningful effort on goal.

Nathaniel Clyne makes his first senior appearance of the campaign at right-back, while Ragnar Klavan is a surprise inclusion on the left. It feels good. The centre-halves were strong until we stopped playing football, then it was hard.

"It was a good performance, not brilliant", the Liverpool manager told his postmatch news conference. Come here, play football, get a result, don't get involved in any fights or whatever.
