Friends Of Liverpool

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish gave us his thoughts ahead of tonights crunch League derby with Everton at Anfield.

For us it’s a massive game,” Dalglish admitted.
“It’s a great game to play in and there will be a fantastic atmosphere. Anybody involved in football knows derby matches are special.
“We know how big it is and how much enjoyment the people get from winning it.
“If you win you get to enjoy it and you get the bragging rights for the city. But both teams come straight out of it into FA Cup sixth round ties at the weekend.
“There’s not much time to sit back and rest on your laurels and neither would you want to. But I’m sure everyone would get a fair bit of enjoyment from a positive result.
“Everyone has to take responsibility and everyone needs to stand up and be counted. Let’s stand together and see what we can do.”
Despite the Reds’ recent run of defeats in the Premier League, the boss insists there’s no cause for alarm.
“It’s certainly not a record you expect from Liverpool,” he said.
“We don’t want to get into the habit of losing games, but in between the losses we won the Carling Cup.
“We’ve never gloated when we’ve won so we won’t hang ourselves when we’ve lost. No-one is feeling sorry for themselves.
“Both against Arsenal and Sunderland we deserved more than what we got. They were different performances but we were playing different teams in different conditions. For all the attributes Sunderland had we more than matched them. We had 56% possession and they had one shot on target which they made the most of.
“They got a bit of luck with their goal and if you are going to win games you always need a bit of good fortune at some stage.
“We wanted to progress this season and we have progressed. We’ve also got a stronger squad this year than we had last year, but we’ve got to put points on the board.
“We just need to keep believing in ourselves and keep pushing forward.”

Liverpool go into the game having lost to Man Utd, Arsenal(unluckily) and Sunderland last Saturday and it was that result and performance that has the critics out in force.

While David Moyes celebrates ten years in charge of Everton on the back of a nine-match unbeaten run culminating in the 1-0 victory over 3rd place Spurs.

Expect a frantic derby with Liverpool to return to winning ways with a 2-1 win.
