Liverpool's Mohamed Salah doesn't scare Lucas Digne in Merseyside derby

It will be fast and furious, but I think Liverpool will win, and cure a bit of their hangover from their Champions League defeat against Paris St-Germain. 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.

Everton head into the weekend in sixth place in the standings and remained unbeaten during their three games in November.

"It would be in all leagues in Europe a European team, I am sure". The players had the whole week together.

Liverpool have played 18 games in both competitions to date, with Firmino and Mohamed Salah having featured in every one of them.

Should he get the nod, Sunday will be Milner's eighth experience of a Merseyside derby, meaning he'll have only faced Manchester City more times as a Liverpool player.

Walter Smith was the last Everton manager to oversee victory at Anfield in 1999 but Silva does not believe their derby record should inhibit the team.

"Football is like this and we need to change the past".

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

"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". In the end, in the games we won we were always the better side. "We have to prove it", he said. "A good result for us could boost our confidence to a high, high level".

Shortly after moving to Everton, Digne claimed he had turned down two approaches from Liverpool in the past, adding that his "I never walk alone" chest tattoo had nothing to with Everton's fiercest rivals.

'He came over and said: 'Hello.' I said to him: 'It's the derby on Sunday and you have to win, you have to win.' He said: 'I know'. "I don't think Everton will have a go at Liverpool, but if they defend for 95 minutes they're not going to keep a clean sheet".

"Before we played against Man [United], we played well before the referee made, for me, a mistake".
