- Liverpool fans have taken social media by storm with Klopp's comments
- Everton will host Liverpool in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park this weekend
Jurgen Klopp threw shade on Everton ahead the Merseyside derby and Liverpool fans are loving it on social media.
Liverpool have to be at their best to beat Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday, March 3, as the Merseyside derby is more about claiming bragging rights in the area.
And Klopp's banter ahead of the highly anticipated derby has given Liverpool fans something to laugh about.
The former Dortmund gaffer said the derby was like a World Cup final to Everton, while for the Reds, they were more interested in winning the Premier League and the Champions League.
"Everton, we all know for them it's like a World Cup final," said Klopp. "It's away after we beat them at Anfield in the 96th minute, so how can we celebrate one win?"
Liverpool fans reacted as you'd expect on social media, with one tweeting: "My manager said the Merseyside derby is "Everton's World Cup final," alongside laughing emojis.
The Reds are more bothered about their Premier League ambitions as the game against the Toffees will also be much of a big deal regardless of how well they are doing.
The first derby of the season was filled with drama as the match was headed for a 0-0 scoreline before Jordan Pickford made a mess of it to send the Anfield crowd into wild celebrations.
Liverpool were hit with a £8,000 fine after the fans invaded the pitch after Divock Origi tucked away the winner to win the first leg 1-0
Liverpool quickly made their intentions known as they capitalized on a faulty pass from Man United defence but Jordan Henderson's shot was quickly blocked.
