There is not much to say about the big Estonian at the back. Many people often forget about him, especially when Klopp picks Lucas at centre-back over him. However, with Joel Matip looking likely to miss the game with a recurring ankle injury, Klavan looks set to keep his place alongside Lovren.

Klavan began the season with a solid display at the Emirates and after that the defender went under the radar, coming in for League Cup games against Derby and featuring in the game against West Ham last week and producing a solid performance away at the Riverside during the 3-0 win over Middlesbrough in midweek.

 

He will no doubt be up against Everton striker Lukaku tonight. Klavan matches Lukaku in terms of physicality but with the big Belgian clearly having the extra yard of pace on him, it will be an interestingly fought battle. Klavan will need to use his experience in order to keep the Belgian quiet.
