Ancelotti: This is our chance to beat Liverpool


Super Eagles winger Alex Iwobi and his Everton teammates have been told to bring out the entire arsenal in their armory tomorrow at the Anfield.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti who gave the charge, insists this is the time to defeat the Reds on their ground.

The Toffees last tasted victory over their rivals in 2010 and have not won away across Stanley Park since September 1999.

Anfield, though, is no longer the fortresss it once was  with Burnley and then Brighton both defeating the champions on home soil in the Premier League this year.

Everton are seeking a response from successive losses against Fulham and Manchester City, while the Reds got back to winning ways with a 2-0 Champions League victory over RB Leipzig in Budapest.

Ancelotti said: “Every derby you play for Everton against Liverpool, you want to win, of course.

“It is a long time that Everton was able to win a derby and it can be the right time tomorrow.

“It could be the right time, but it depends on what we are able to do on the pitch tomorrow, only this.

“I don’t think we feel pressure (of not winning against Liverpool for so long).

“I think we are better (now) compared to the past, so I think we can have more opportunity to get a result.”

Reflecting on Liverpool’s home record this season, Ancelotti added: “For sure they have lost the support of their fans, in this sense Anfield was one of the most difficult stadium to play against.
