PREMIER - Klopp on Everton clash: ''We know what our supporters want''
When Liverpool takes on Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday, Jurgen Klopp stated that they must not lose their heads in pursuit of vengeance.
When the teams last played at Goodison Park 13 months ago, Virgil van Dijk sustained a season-ending cruciate knee ligament injury as a result of Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's rash lunge.
Richarlison's late challenge in a tense match despite the absence of spectators also sidelined Thiago Alcantara for months.
A derby will be played in front of a full house at Goodison Park for the first time in over three years, as Everton want to end their losing streak by jeopardizing Liverpool's title hopes.
Klopp, on the other hand, believes the Reds should focus on letting their football speak for itself.
"We play football. We are still an emotional team but you have to use the emotion in the right way and that's the plan," Klopp said on Tuesday.
"We know what our supporters want and we try to fulfil their dreams and wishes.
"Derby games are more in focus but from our point it is a football game which we have to approach like a normal one."
