“We’ll hope for a hard-fought draw” – The view from Everton ahead of the Merseyside derby

 30 March 2017

Liverpool and Everton face off in the 228th Merseyside derby on Saturday lunchtime, so we’ve got in touch with a Blue to hear his thoughts.

Matches don’t come much bigger for the Reds, and Sadio Mane‘s last-gasp winner at Goodison Park back in December is still fresh in the memory.

Liverpool’s title challenge was very much alive at that point, and although it has petered out since, a top-four finish remains a vital goal to achieve.

Three more points at Anfield this weekend are a must, but Ronald Koeman’s side will be hellbent on a first win on Reds turf since 1999.

Ahead of the game, we’ve spoken to Everton fan Mark Godfrey (@thefootballpink) to get his view on his side’s season, Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp and Saturday’s game.
