Danny Ings set to start against Everton, Liverpool fans react

Liverpool fans have been debating whether or not manager Jurgen Klopp should field a strong team against Merseyside rivals Everton later today.

The reason being that the Reds have a crucial Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday evening.

At the moment, Liverpool hold a 3-0 advantage in the tie thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Sadio Mane.

Despite their significant advantage, Pep Guardiola’s City team are capable of performing a comeback.

Judging by Klopp’s press conference on Friday, the German coach is prioritising the Champions League over today’s derby.

The former Borussia Dortmund boss told reporters that Danny Ings could be given the nod to start at Goodison Park.

The injury-plagued striker has made just eight appearances in all competitions this season, and every one has been an outing from the bench.

Ings have never started a match under Klopp, but it appears that today will be the day.

Liverpool fans have tweeted their reaction to the team news.
