Liverpool's massive 7-0 victory over Manchester United at Anfield last season was a once-in-a-lifetime result that will not be repeated but Sunday's derby promises to be a 'special' game, manager Juergen Klopp said.
Liverpool continued their stranglehold over local rivals Everton to go top of the Premier League on Saturday, but had fortune on their side as Mohamed Salah's double secured a 2-0 win at Anfield.
Mohamed Salah bagged his 100th goal at Anfield and became the first Liverpool player to score in nine consecutive home games in a 1-0 Premier League win over Brentford at the weekend.
Liverpool have regained some consistency in the Premier League in recent games but the squad cannot take that confidence for granted in their quest for a top-four spot, manager Juergen Klopp said on Friday.
Liverpool brought Manchester United's bandwagon to a shuddering halt as Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah all scored twice in a record 7-0 hammering of their arch-rivals to boost their Premier League top-four hopes at Anfield on Sunday.
For many Liverpool fans the scenes brought back memories of a crush at Hillsborough Stadium in 1989 that resulted in the deaths of 97 supporters
Jurgen Klopp has warned struggling Liverpool there is no room for "self-pity" as he fights to stop their troubled season spiralling further out of control.
Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah's struggles in front of goal are down to the club no longer having the "well-drilled" front three that terrorised defences in the past, manager Juergen Klopp said.
Liverpool and Chelsea continued their disappointing seasons as the injury-hit mid-table teams played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday.
