Jurgen Klopp drops ‘useful’ Aston Villa hint ahead of Everton vs Liverpool


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed his side’s 7-2 move at the hands of Aston Villa proved ‘useful’ ahead of the return to the Premier League. Villa beat the Reds last Sunday in a frenzied display to extend their perfect start to the top-flight campaign.

Ollie Watkins scored a hat-trick, Jack Grealish scored a brace and there were also goals for Ross Barkley and John McGinn on a night to remember at Villa Park.

Liverpool full-back Andy Robertson admitted it was an ’embarrassing’ result for the defending champions, but ahead of this weekend’s Merseyside derby against Everton Klopp says the extreme nature of the loss make it easier to choose what went wrong – and fix it.

“In some ways I like more than losing 3-2 because it’s just clearer,” he told talkSPORT.

“We could have lost that night 3-2, and then we go home and the boys go to their national teams, and we do the analysis, and that’s about it. But it’s more useful. ”

Klopp also believes the international break will have helped his players overcome the Reds’ biggest loss since 1963.

“For me it was very important that the boys didn’t wear it all the time because they all had three games to play,” he said.

“Intense games, important games for the country, and you can’t do that with half your brain at Liverpool, so I wanted them to focus on that.

“But I wrote everything I thought about the game and then we can really finish it for now. They played the last games on Wednesday, arrive here very tired on Thursday, so we’ll try to help them recover.

“We have a session on Friday and then we play Flying Everton, so that’s it. We can’t change that and we don’t want to change it. This is another challenge. ”

Villa returns to action against Leicester City on Sunday.
