Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has told BBC Sport that he has been so impressed by Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s improvement.
Calvert-Lewin currently leads the Premier League’s goalscoring charts, and also scored on his England debut over the international break.
The once goal-shy striker has become a clinical finisher, and will be looking to continue his good form against Liverpool tomorrow.
Calvert-Lewin has caused problems for almost every backline he has faced so far this term.
And Klopp knows that Liverpool will have to be on their guard to stop Everton’s attacking talent, as he is a big fan of the squad Carlo Ancelotti has built at Goodison Park.
“Calvert-Lewin, I really expected him to make big steps in the next few years and he did,” said Klopp.
“He has everything you need in a top striker: size, mobility, speed, desire, technically really, really good, in the air, finishing with his head, both feet.
“And now it all works together – both wings have top-class players with James and Richarlison. Midfield, Allan plus whoever plays there, if it’s Sigurddson or whoever.
“So it’s a really, really good team and the last line works better because in a good team it’s easier to defend. That’s what you see when you watch Everton, so it will be a really interesting game.”
Everton’s summer signings certainly seem to have made them much stronger already, as Ancelotti’s men have taken maximum points from their first four league games.
They now go into the Merseyside derby with momentum on their side, and if they can beat Liverpool tomorrow then it will really outline their credentials to break into the top four this season.
