Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is adamant that
the Reds don't need any extra motivation ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash
Klopp saw his men go 2-1 down to Paris Saint-Germain in a
UEFA Champions League Group C clash on Wednesday in a result which could harm
their chances of advancing in the competition.
Currently, last season's losing finalists are in third spot
on six points behind PSG on eight points in second, while Napoli lead the
standings on nine points.
Liverpool need to win their final match against the Italians
on 11 December to stand any chance of advancing to the knockout stages.
Nonetheless, after the encounter when asked whether his team
would react positively in the Merseyside derby at Anfield this weekend, the
German mentor said: "Come on, it's a derby, we don't have to show a
"If we had won 5-0 tonight then we would have had to
show a reaction on Sunday. This game is isolated from the season: it's a derby,
it's at home.
"Everton are doing really well this season, they're a
completely different cup of tea, I would say, to the last few years so it will
be a tough one.
"We have to be 100% spot on, but that was clear before
this game so it's not about showing a reaction, it's about carrying on, go, go,
go in the league, get as many points as you can get, win your home games, win
your away games in the best way.
"That’s how it is. Until Sunday, we will be ready
again. It's not what I say here, it's what we show there."
