Liverpool elegend Jamie Carragher told Xherdan Shaqiri about importance of Merseyside derby

Sigurdsson looking forward to derby day

"I don't think it's the point of the season where Man City will feel that, but Liverpool have to go into February or March on the coat-tails of Man City. It's not what I say here, it's what we show there".

"I would like to know how much time they wasted tonight. I'm not a bit interested", he said.

"It's all part and parcel of his game and we needed to deal with that".

Liverpool next play Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Sunday at 16:15 (GMT).

Following a disappointing time last season, in which Everton struggled through three different managers in Ronald Koeman, caretaker David Unsworth and then Sam Allardyce, Silva finally appears to have discovered a winning formula at Goodison Park. "He has the best squad as well", he explained. As a player you can't just do anything about it can you? Since I am in, Everton was always really busy, but now it's the best-tuned squad.

"One or two years ago (Wayne) Rooney came back, (Gylfi) Sigurdsson came, they said they could not play because of lack of speed, but everything is there".

"In England it's quite hard, but the development and improvement is obvious".

"Analyse Everton and tell me it will be an easy game, tell me their weaknesses: they defend really good, have good players in all positions".

And after more comfortable clashes with the Blues in recent years, Klopp is expecting the toughest derby yet.

Klopp will be without suspended captain Jordan Henderson for the game, and has challenged the rest of the squad to step up in his absence.

"Yes, in specific games we can say that", he said. "They brought in players he wanted".

Roberto Firmino hasn't been playing to the best of his ability lately and Daniel Sturridge is an option if Klopp wants to freshen things up but I think Firmino will keep his place up front on Sunday. The three results can happen in the match but nothing will change in our way.

The energetic, fast, thrilling brand of football that we all loved to see last season seems like a distant memory, with only the opening day victory over West Ham and September's Anfield triumph over PSG in the reverse fixture some of the only displays of this style this season.

"We can take some confidence from the way we played at Chelsea".
