Everton may have played a perfect campaign to date, but coach Carlo Ancelotti says his taai Toffees will have to be at their best to beat Liverpool tomorrow.
Premier League leaders Everton welcome the defending champions to Goodison Park in a 1.30pm showdown, with Ancelotti’s manne are on the verge of rewriting club history with an eighth win in a row, equalling a 142-year-old best-start to a campaign.
For that to happen though, they will have to beat Liverpool for the first time in 10 years.
And Ancelotti tells his in-form players: “We have to be focused to do our best, excited and happy to play our game.
“We don’t need to have pressure, we want to play the best game we can play.
“All the games are difficult.
“This is more difficult because we are going to play against the team that won the Premier League last season.
“It is a derby, and they are a quality team.”
Everton have been boosted by the arrival of dynamic midfield duo Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure, Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez, while the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin – who has scored six league goals already – have taken their game to the next level.
