"We didn't bring him in to accept he is fifth, sixth-choice but he can play many positions which means options". Of course Liverpool is the favourite, but in a derby you never know what is going on.

"I don't think I've seen him play as consistently as good as this at any point in his career", remarked Adam Lallana of his Liverpool captain to Off the Ball. He was here yesterday and enjoyed it a lot, Sadio [Mane] and Naby [Keita] with the Salzburg DNA, it was really nice.

"Is he the finished article?"

Despite officially becoming a Red on January 1, Minamino wasn't eligible to make his debut in the European Champion's clash with Sheffield United on Thursday night. "We have to be focused there, we don't want to waste time talking about the transfer market because in this moment I want to put all my energy into explaining to the players which kind of game we want to play".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has issued a rallying cry to his injury-stricken squad to leave everything they have on the pitch when they look to extend their unbeaten run against Everton in Sunday's FA Cup tie.

Klopp, who indicated Liverpool are unlikely to make further signings in the January window, called for patience with Minamino.

"At the moment we have a really good football team and we have some of the best offensive players in the world".

"It would be insane, really nice if you could give him time", Klopp added.

Ancelotti also wanted the Colombian at Napoli at the start of the season, but the move did not materialise and the player is now looking for a regular game time. We want to see his natural skills so will not fill him with information, we want him to be as natural as possible.

"Try to think one time about the players because, without them, it doesn't work as well".

"I asked [ex-Salzburg boss] Marco Rose and he was very positive, so he can start now, will learn English quick, speaks a little bit already".

With Klopp expected to ring the changes, it would be a surprise if the 24-year-old didn't feature, if not start proceedings.

"I don't know exactly what he has - it was the groin - but I can say already he will not be involved against Everton", Klopp told reporters.

"From the next moment on, we are thinking about bringing him into the squad".

"But for him, wherever it is - here or somewhere else - the only important thing is that he can show he is 100% fit".
