Marco – Klopp celebrated like world cup final. Marco Silva has hit back at Jurgen Klopp’s claim that the Merseyside derby is like a “World Cup final” for Everton. Premier League leaders Liverpool travel to Goodison Park on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, hoping to extend their unbeaten run against the Toffees to 19 matches in all competitions. Speaking ahead last month’s goalless draw with Manchester United, Klopp suggested the upcoming derby meant more to Everton than Liverpool.
“You have Everton, and we all know for them, it’s a kind of World Cup final
“You have Everton, and we all know for them, it’s a kind of World Cup final,” said Klopp. However, Silva says Klopp’s jubilant celebrations at the end of the reverse fixture in December proves the match is of major significance to Liverpool. He said: “For us? It’s a special match for the city and the fans.”I didn’t see a big difference. I managed my last derby in December. “What I felt was a special match for both teams. They celebrated that lucky goal. Like us and for them they celebrated like a World Cup final.”
