EPL: I have respect for Liverpool manager Klopp, says Everton boss Lampard

Everton boss, Frank Lampard, has said he has “respect” for Liverpool rival Jurgen Klopp.

Everton host Liverpool for the early kickoff tomorrow.

Lampard has clashed with Klopp in the past, but says: “We know Liverpool very well. They are a class act on the pitch, there will be some similarities with how Leeds set up in their intensity and we have to face that. We should have more points but the feeling is we are getting better and better.

“I have a lot of respect for Jurgen Klopp. As managers you want to be winners and you have to be on a certain edge but you have to be respectful. You shake hands before the game, you do your job during the game and hopefully you shake hands after that. I understand what the derby means and I will stand up to do my job.

“I was fortunate enough to take part in a lot of London derbies as a player but when you talk about Liverpool and the city is 50/50. It ramps up the intensity for the fans. It’s my first at Goodison Park and we have to match the passion they will turn up with.”
