Jurgen Klopp's comments about Liverpool's midfield after PSG defeat worries fans

"When everything is brilliant and we score goals, you always ask about defending and how we can fix that".

Here's how Liverpool fans have been reacting to Klopp's comments ahead of a hugely important game against Everton.

Liverpool's loss to Paris-Saint-Germain at the Parcs des Princes this week has left the Reds teetering on the brink of dropping out of the Champions League altogether and staring the lesser Europa League directly in the face.

"If you would have let us play a game immediately after the game on Wednesday, we would have played", Klopp said.

"I think all the boys have been looking forward to the derby since the start of the season and that feeling has grown with the performances we have been putting together over the past couple of months", Sigurdsson told the club website.

But the change that Marco Silva has brought to the Goodison outfit has been impressive in such a relatively short period.

"Really, if people cannot enjoy our football then I can't help them". Last year already [Theo] Walcott came in, this year Bernard came in, [Andre] Gomes, [Yerry] Mina.

"I agree about the power of this derby, it is a good word", the Everton manager said.

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.

Liverpool have played 18 games in both competitions to date, with Firmino and Mohamed Salah having featured in every one of them.

"I can't say to the boys, 'We've fixed things at the back but we're not doing enough offensively.' That would be insane. I don't see any problems in midfield".

"We went to Chelsea to win and proved we can win".

"It's a fact, but I can say to (the players) that always these type of records, they exist to break", he said when reminded of Everton's results against their neighbours.

"Of course it could be better but it is not because of one player".

"I don't like to talk too much about players we don't have available, we know after Watford", he explained.

"Before we played against Man [United], we played well before the referee made, for me, a mistake".
