Liverpool FC face a hard clash against Everton at Anfield on Sunday evening in pursuit of an 11th Premier League win of the 2018-19 campaign. With Neymar we're talking about one of the best players in the world, but watching him was embarrassing.

"One or two years ago [Wayne] Rooney came back, [Gylfi] Sigurdsson came, they said they could not play because of lack of speed". We do not need an extra portion of motivation because of Paris and what happened on the pitch. They have good organisation with [Seamus] Coleman back and fit, [Michael] Keane settled and fit, Mina is a brilliant player, very important in the build-up, and [Lucas] Digne is like a young [Leighton] Baines.

But the change that Marco Silva has brought to the Goodison outfit has been impressive in such a relatively short period.

However, the boss is not yet sure who will be available for Liverpool's clash with Everton at Anfield, as a number of his players are nursing knocks sustained during the midweek game against Paris Saint-Germain.

It was time-wasting at its finest and unfortunately for Liverpool players, the referee bought into it and awarded several free-kicks that shouldn't have been.

"He gives 100 per cent every day on the training ground and it is easy to understand how he can work as well during the match".

"We went to Chelsea to win and proved we can win".

Everton will remain sixth with victory but have not taken three points from Anfield since Kevin Campbell scored in a 1-0 win in September 1999.

"I get that you have to write about things, no problem, but write it and don't ask me about it because I'm not interested about it, I don't think about it and I can't answer it. A good result for us could boost our confidence to a high, high level".

In fact, Liverpool have not lost to their crosstown rivals at Anfield in nearly two decades. "It's football. We play well against great teams and I think it's big game this weekend and we do the same like always". If they're not firing on all cylinders, the defence isn't shielded effectively and the attacking force of Mané, Salah and Firmino isn't getting any kind of quality service for them to make the most of.
