He’s wrong, and then he’s losing to Everton at Anfield in the Merseyside derby for the first time in more than a decade.
This time last week, there was clandestine talk that Jurgen Klopp had left Liverpool. Of course, it wasn’t true, but do you think King Kloppo might be starting to take that direction in his mind?

Some Liverpool fans have called talkSPORT to demand Klopp’s dismissal
You have to feel a bit for Ozan Kabak. I mean, how bad can Liverpool be if you wonder if life at Schalke is less depressing?
He’s been released, and he was rightly hired to play a defense that has no central defenders, and he’s looking around and wondering how they won the title last year.
And that’s the point – this group didn’t win the title last season. No matter how cool it looks to see Jordan Henderson sweep the ball onto the wing from a deeper position, it doesn’t make him a center back.
He can get away with it for so long, but then he catches up, so Jurgey-lad insists on keeping him there (thus losing him in midfield) when he has real defenders who could play there is weird.
Kabak has had a difficult start at Liverpool
Rather than focus on that, Klopp reminded the world that it really is windy in Liverpool and that ‘God must be a Man City fan and you can’t beat God. Well, not with Hendo as central, you can’t.
Still, Carlo Ancelotti is already in Everton folklore with the win, and rare credit goes to Jordan Pickford for not figuring out how to make the game more difficult than necessary.
And once again, Richarlison is a decent player if he can get through enough of a game on his feet and without rolling down the court.

It meant a lot to the Everton players at the end, who will party like it’s 1999
Man City seemed to be in high spirits for the first eight minutes against Arsenal before realizing that they really didn’t need to try too hard to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table.
Kevin De Bruyne is back, which hardly hurts his chances and the way John Stones casually relieved Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang off the field towards the end of the game bodes well for the summer, if only Ruben Dias were more. English than Harry Maguire.
Now there are 18 victories in a row for Pep. Ten points ahead with no other team looking consistent enough to take advantage of any slippage. I doubt it’s that simple.
Liverpool fan wants Jurgen Klopp to step down after Everton loss and suggests Sir Kenny Dalglish could be his replacement
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer certainly hopes he’s ready and dusted. Manchester United beat Newcastle 3-1 at Old Trafford with Marcus Rashford and Daniel James scoring more, of course, Brunaldo’s mandatory penalty.
But where City looks rock solid on defense, United have permanently injured Victor Lindelof and the aforementioned Maguire who, we must assume, was trying to get him into the corner rather than hand him over for Allan Saint-Maximin to return to. home.
Daniel James scored his fifth goal of the season in a win over Newcastle
Thomas Tuchel has made his first mark at Chelsea.
Hooking Callum Hudson-Odoi after 76 minutes after bringing him in just at halftime is the kind of managerial move that makes me really like a coach.
At this point, we have no idea where Hudson-Odoi stands on Stamford Bridge’s player power rankings who have surpassed many coaches before Tuchel, but he didn’t seem overly impressed as his numbers went up.
Takumi Minamino starred again for Southampton, scoring his second since his loan out from Liverpool and Mason Mount is likely to find himself in first place in the class with his new teacher following their draw based on penalties.
It was another lively afternoon on the bench for Tuchel, who was unhappy with Hudson-Odoi’s performance.
It’s amazing to think that when Tottenham were up 3-0 with ten minutes to go against West Ham earlier in the season, he was prepared to praise José Mourinho’s comeback as something unbelievable and how the Spurs were very title challengers this season.
Those of you who have read this column for a few seasons (come on, there must be some of you) will know that this is not my worst advice, but it is not aging very well, I will give it to you.
West Ham are really revitalized with the second coming of David Moyes and their victory over their London rivals kept them in the Champions League places. Yes, that means they are in the top four. West Ham. Four. And well for that too, I can tell you.

It was Lingard who had the final say on the day of the derby as it continues its resurgence in East London.
It is a pleasure to see the rebirth of Jesse Lingard and his end for the Hammers winner will be overlooked because he was wearing a West Ham jersey with Lingard on the back and not a United jersey with Fernandes on top of the number.
It was all very good Tottenham pushing hard at the end – remember the days when they did that at the beginning, led and then gave away a silly draw?
West Ham had good value for the win keeping my anticipated title winners in ninth place. Oh. It is also the first time that Moysaih has beaten José Mourinho.
Still, Jose’s training methods are still unsurpassed according to, er, Jose.
Mourinho is under pressure at Tottenham to hand out trophies and European football
Leicester City managed to widen the gap between them and any other top-four contender with a 2-1 win over an Aston Villa without Jack Grealish.
That allowed James Maddison a goodbye in the Grealish vs. Maddison undercard clash and he made the most of it by scoring the Foxes’ second, which turned out to be the decider.
You’d think Sheffield United would have circled Fulham as a match they could win in order to have any chance of staying on top.
You know Fulham would have done the same, and it was Scott Parker’s team that took all three points in a rare case of ‘the player does a great exclusive pre-game interview in the newspaper and then plays well that afternoon’ when Ademola Lookman seized the winner.
Ademola Lookman scored the only goal of the match for Fulham
Illan Meslier has made some mistakes this season, it cannot be denied. However, the French Leeds goalkeeper cannot be blamed for Adam Traore’s piledriver hitting the bar, bouncing and hitting him on the back before crawling over the line. Even for Leeds, this was a new way to lose.
Burnley and West Brom’s goalless finish was far from the weekend’s biggest surprise, I’m sure you’ll agree.
