Liverpool boss Klopp: Shaqiri looks fresh and strong

Friday, 06 Dec, 2019

"I have great respect for everything he has done and for the football club".

Silva, who replaced Sam Allardyce as Everton manager in the summer of 2018, was relieved of his duties on Thursday, a day after the club's 5-2 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield left it in the Premier League bottom three.

Liverpool is nearing the second half of the season with an eight point lead above fierce rivals Manchester City and surprise challengers Leicester City. He has moreover been below consideration by one other of his passe golf equipment, West Ham United, must they sack Manuel Pellegrini who has moreover been below tension this season.

'City have had some indifferent results but Liverpool have been relentless and they have not played as well as we know they can, but they have still ground out results and that is the difference this year'.

Jose Mourinho's return to Old Trafford was not a happy one as Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford's double earned his side a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The usual zip has been missing from City's forward play and they have gone four Premier League games without keeping a clean sheet with Guardiola deploying midfielder Fernandinho as centre back alongside John Stones.

Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane and Georginio Wijnaldum were on the scoresheet for the Reds, while Michael Keane and Richarlison tried to restore some pride for Everton.

Tammy Abraham returned from injury to help sink former club Aston Villa as Chelsea got back to winning ways with a 2-1 victory on John Terry's return to Stamford Bridge.

The thrashing by Liverpool was Everton's ninth loss in 15 games in the league, leaving the team in third-to-last place despite their benign run of fixtures to start the season. Everton are struggling defensively and the team seems to lack the confidence needed to win big games.

In fact, Klopp's side has not been defeated in the Premier League since January 3 when they were beaten 2-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last season.
