Liverpool have named their starting side and substitutes to play host to Merseyside rivals Everton in a Premier League fixture at Anfield this afternoon.

While Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp was quick to accept responsibility for their inability to see out the game, the decision to award Everton the penalty was slightly higher on his list of grievances.

After a quiet start to the second hlaf, Everton were handed a lifeline 15 minutes from time when the Croatian defender, Dejan Lovren brought down Dominic Calvert-Lewin in the penalty area.

Lovren was still protesting with officials after the final whistle while Klopp argued with a Sky Sports television interviewer.

"Luis put one on a plate for me".

"I'd be saying: "What [are] you doing?"

"I'm quite looking forward to seeing how Everton handle them three because I wouldn't want to play against them", he concluded.

'It was a brilliant goal that they scored.

And after Gerrard's statement in which he said that he would've loved to see Luis Suarez continue his career at Liverpool, he believes that Klopp's current front-line is incredible too.

"Calvert-Lewin makes it smart, but he makes a step in this direction and even then it's nothing".

"I told the referee I didn't understand this".

Everton enjoyed only 21 percent of possession in the game while Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson completed more passes (60) in the first half - than all of the visiting players put together. I practiced yesterday and thankfully I caught it right. That shows how we mastered a really good side'.

For Liverpool, the draw will feel like a loss, especially since they knew that if the beat the Tofees, they could have leapfrogged third-placed Chelsea, who lost their game against West Ham United on Saturday.
