Everton defender Seamus Coleman insists they must deliver on Sunday in the Merseyside derby at Anfield.
Over the years Everton have been the second best team in the Merseyside with Liverpool being the dominating one amongst the two. Everton’s recent record against Liverpool is not so good as they are yet to register a victory in the Premier League in this century.
But this season has been a promising one for the Toffees. The arrival of Marco Silva has given a new hope at the Goodison Park. Added to that, consistent performances of newcomers with the likes of Yerry Mina, Andre Gomes and Richarlison has been a major boost for them and the Merseysiders can definitely fancy their chance on Sunday.
Coleman said, “It [our last win] was a long time ago and we need to look forward and we need to give the new players a bit of a taste of what it’s like to win one of these games, and the fans as well.
“It’s easy to come in here and say all the right things in an interview, I’m sure we have done over the last five or 10 years and not turned up on the day.
“We need to turn up on Sunday and do our talking on the pitch. This is a massive game for our city and we’ve been on the receiving end too many times, and there’ll be a few tackles going in this weekend but we’re looking forward to playing our game.
“The manager sets up to try to win the game, no matter who we’ve played this season, and that’ll be no different I’m sure on Sunday.”
