'It will be a fight, nothing else,' said Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said ahead of his side's upcoming Premier League match against local rivals Everton, at a press conference in Liverpool's Melwood HQ on Friday.
«It will not be the most easy game in the world but nobody expects that usually in a derby,» the German said. «We have to be ready for a proper, proper fight. And that's how derby... Еще should be.»
«We cannot always carry the last game in the next game,» Klopp added, adding «a reaction is always important and we showed a reaction, we want to show a reaction, we want to play better, we have to play better than we did in Paris.»
Liverpool head into the derby having lost midweek to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, leaving last year's finalists an uphill challenge to qualify from the group.
Liverpool sit second in the Premier League table after an unbeaten start to the campaign, two points shy of leaders Manchester City.
Everton lie in sixth and are looking to turn a page in recent history: the last time the Toffees beat the Reds was in 2010 and their last win at Anfield was some 19 years ago in 1999.
The pair meet at Anfield on Sunday at 16:15 GMT.
