Henderson: Derby draw disappointing, but we'll stay positive


Jamie Carragher has questioned Jurgen Klopp's baffling choice of substitutions after an uninspired Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by Everton.

"It was a very special moment, but it's not the time, two days before the game, to say we want something like that again".

All is not well on the red half of Merseyside now, despite their lofty league position - they are only two points behind Manchester City. "I know people don't like it but the wind came from different directions, the ball was in the air a lot", the Liverpool manager said.

And Salah's search for a 50th league goal for the club continues.

"You have to be ready for these chances".

The Reds have dropped to second in the table after Manchester City's narrow 1-0 win against Bournemouth on Tuesday, and only a win will take them back to the top.

Given that Liverpool have surged into the position of title contenders this season thanks to the potency of their front three, it is ironic that they have been let down by a lack of goals when they have needed them most. We have to prepare him for his entire career, not just one particular game. "We have to show stability and fight for the result". The pressure has been on City because they are expected to retain the title.

Local tensions will be more of an issue tomorrow as Liverpool head to Goodison Park with memories of their added-time victory over Everton at Anfield in December still relatively fresh in the mind.

"I don't have to give my players any advice, they know already", said Klopp.

And while Klopp, quite rightly, insisted Liverpool were not losing their nerve, this is a season of fine margins and Liverpool's attacking well suddenly looks a little dry.

Klopp's mood was both defiant and positive, stressing there are nine games left and more twists and turns in this title road. Michael Keane was vast at the back, preventing Liverpool returning to the top of the Premier League, and Goodison Park shook to its ancient foundations at the final whistle.

It was Parker's first game in charge following the sacking of Claudio Ranieri, a former Chelsea boss, after less than four months in charge.

The game looked nearly certain to end in a 0-0 stalemate before a goalkeeping error from Everton's Jordan Pickford allowed Divock Origi to score the victor during second-half stoppage time.

"They accept it. I don't think they are happy", he said.
