Liverpool defender Ragnar Klavan is taking the defensive set-ups of Everton and West Brom this week as a “big compliment”.
The Reds struggled to break down both teams – managed by Sam Allardyce and Alan Pardew – but the Estonian is choosing to look on the bright side, believing their approach means they must be doing something right.
Premier League football nowadays is just one good side battering a bad one who waste time and try to nick a draw. They either break through and thrash them, or they don't. Getting boring. It's just not Liverpool who experience it, either. Happens most matches.

“For us, this is a big compliment if they come only for a draw here and it’s all they want,” Klavan told the club’s official website.
“It shows us that we are on the right path, playing good and are always dangerous. But like always, you have to succeed in your performance when you have these ‘little bit lesser’ days.
“In the last two games, we’ve lost four points and that’s a pity. But we have to keep on going, we are playing good, creating chances and the goals will come.
“As I said, the next game is already around the corner and we have to focus on that. We will take what was good from this game and try to improve what was not so good and keep on going.”
