Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp explained the ‘rest’ prompted him to perform his signature volleys against The Kop after Monday’s 2-0 win over Everton. Klopp’s side are at the top of the Merseyside derby, rebounding from last weekend’s defeat at Wolves.
Liverpool ranks ninth in the English Premier League, nine points behind fourth-placed Newcastle United, with a postponed match.
The Reds face a grueling trip to Newcastle, who are unbeaten at St James’ Park this season, on Saturday before hosting Real Madrid at Anfield in the Champions League last 16.
Klopp is hoping a comfortable derby win can be a stepping stone to the rest of the season, with the main stars slowly returning to action.
Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino introduced from the bench in the second half, while Virgil van Dijk was an unused substitute.
