Marco Silva: ‘power’ of Merseyside derby win can give Everton confidence boost

"It can happen. But the frustrating thing is how we conceded the goals and then it's always hard to come back", he said.

"Analyse Everton and then tell me it will be an easy game".

While Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league, and stood two points behind leaders Manchester City ahead of the weekend fixtures, successive away defeats in their Champions League group at Red Star Belgrade and Paris Saint-Germain have raised questions about their trophy-winning potential.

That means Walcott must be on top of his game defensively - putting in a much improved shift than his Old Trafford effort last month - otherwise Marco Silva's side will be overrun.

Something Jurgen Klopp must address for the clash is his team selection. They brought in players he wanted. Yes, we could have scored... "You can see the style of play is different to a year ago. But no, I don't see any problems in midfield, to be honest".

Asked whether he was confident they were "ready" for the intensity of the Merseyside derby, and particularly with the captain absent, Klopp again took umbrage with the line of questioning.

If one statistic sums up how languid Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum were, it's that Keita completed more dribbles during his 20-minute cameo than the three of them combined. "We have to prove it", he said. "I don't think Everton will have a go at Liverpool, but if they defend for 95 minutes they're not going to keep a clean sheet".

"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.

"He is understanding better now what I want, the moves he has to do, what positions and spaces on the pitch he has to receive the ball", Silva said.

They have a fighter's chance of a first win there this century.

"We are here to build something, to prepare our club and players to compete in every match, every time against these sides and not just on one day where you can have one good day".

We have to play without Hendo, that's all it is.

"We won't change our ambition or style of play".

Cavaliers Trade Kyle Korver to Jazz
This season, he had appeared in 17 games for the Jazz - all off the bench - and averaged 8.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists. Though the team is excited about the return of Kyle Korver (who played in Utah from 2007-2010), they're sad to see Burks go.
