Jurgen Klopp provides Roberto Firmino injury update & speaks out on Erik ten Hag to Manchester United

Jurgen Klopp has been speaking to the media on Friday ahead of Liverpool’s next outing.

Liverpool will face off with Everton in the final Merseyside derby of the season on Sunday afternoon.

Ahead of the clash, Klopp discussed a number of topics in his pre-match press conference, including team news.

And it was largely good news for the Reds as Roberto Firmino is the only slight doubt: "No other problems but Bobby is getting better and better. It's painful so we have to make sure he is today on the pitch. Two days to go, so maybe he can be involved."

Klopp also gave his thoughts on Erik ten Hag becoming the new Manchester United manager:

Liverpool vs Everton

Liverpool head into the weekend’s action of course still looking to knock Manchester City off the Premier League summit.

The Reds did go top of the Premier League on Tuesday, but City regained top spot when they smashed Brighton a day later.

Liverpool now have just six more games to overturn the one-point deficit, meaning they cannot afford to drop any points vs Everton.

That is unlikely to be too much of an issue though as Everton are currently 17th in the Premier League, just one point above the relegation zone.

Everton also have a simply dismal record in this derby, winning just one match against their city rivals since the back end of 2010.
