The Reds are now Manchester City's closest challengers in the Premier League table, with Klopp's men just two points behind the defending champions after 13 games. It is good that we won these games or got results from these games, the most exciting one was the late victor of Sadio (Mane) at Everton - that felt unbelievable. "That was a good result", Sigurdsson, who has scored six goals this season, added.

"It's easy to come in here and say all the right things in an interview, I'm sure we have done over the last five or 10 years and not turned up on the day".

"It's 4.15pm, so it's a good time, almost dark, perfect-everything is there that we need".

And after more comfortable clashes with the Blues in recent years, Klopp is expecting the toughest derby yet. "That's b******t, and you know it".

"It will be a proper fight, open spaces, speed on both sides".
