Liverpool fans will be more than confident of grabbing yet another result against their Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday. They haven’t lost in this fixture since October 2010 and the supporters have no interest in wiping the slate the clean and giving their rivals a win, even if they have to go into the game without Roberto Firmino.
Klopp provides an update on Roberto Firmino ahead of Sunday's clash against @Everton…

Jurgen Klopp gave a big update on Roberto Firmino’s fitness on the Liverpool website after he missed the midweek clash against Watford after suffering an ankle injury in last weekend’s huge clash at Old Trafford. However, injured or not a lot of the Reds are keen to see their Brazilian forward left out of the squad for the Everton clash as his form has been below par over the last few weeks.
The 27-year-old forward hasn’t scored a goal since he bagged in the club’s 4-3 win over Crystal Palace back in the middle of January. Since then he’s played in four matches and has only grabbed an assist in that time, and the former Hoffenheim man’s form has been a mirror image of the club’s form as whilst Firmino has been goalless, his side have been winless in three of their four games he’s played in since that Palace win.
You can read the Reds’ thoughts on Firmino here:
Bobby is one of my favourite players but he hasn’t been performing lately, maybe we should give Origi more of a chance, he proved himself yesterday and on loan last season. He could be a key asset to the team

Don’t play him, he’s in bad form and origi deserves to be started

Hope he gets fit on time, Origi can also deputise regardless.

The Reds love the idea of Firmino missing out on this one and would rather see Divock Origi, who loves a goal against Everton, thrown into the mix at Goodison Park.
