In her latest column, Liverpool Ladies captain Gemma Bonner looks forward to Sunday’s season opener against local rivals Everton Ladies in the SSE Women’s FA Cup fifth round.
It’s fair to say we cannot wait for Sunday and the Merseyside derby against Everton Ladies at the Select Security Stadium in Widnes. What a fixture we have to kick off the 2017 season! It’s a been a long pre-season for us but since the draw was made, this is a game we have been looking forward to. I’m sure Everton will be well up for this game as well and it has the makings of an exciting encounter.
Everton have already played a couple of fixtures and are coming into this game unbeaten, so they will have a lot of confidence and we will certainly not be underestimating them. We played them in the Continental Cup last year and we won 1-0, but it was a very tough encounter, as Merseyside derbies always are. Form does go out of the window in these derby games and we know Everton will be very competitive and we will have to be at our best to get past them.
