Jurgen Klopp promises intensive Merseyside derby as Liverpool chase Top Four finish


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says tonight's Merseyside derby promises to be an intensive one.

The Reds will qualify for next season's Champions League if they win the Europa League but they will want to do it also by finishing in the Top Four.

And the German says the focus in on beating Everton and take all three points against Roberto Martinez's side.

"It will be intensive," Klopp said.

"I know nearly everything about Everton. I have lived in the city for half a year and met a lot of people and it's a big club, a very successful club in the past.

"I don't know exactly how the situation is there with the semi-final at the weekend; they are not used to playing two games a week in the season too often.

"Last week they had the situation, this week they have the situation. At the end of these two weeks is a pretty important game for them, so I don't know too much about this.

"But we should only think about our game, our line-up and to use the situation and especially to understand our situation in the table.

"Nobody in the dressing room thinks about the Europa League, it's only what we can reach in this Premier League season."
