Jamie Carragher, the former Liverpool skipper, insisted that his ex-team will be huge favourites in the upcoming derby match against Everton – and after beating Spartak Moscow 7-0, the expectations will be even higher.
Fourth-placed Liverpool scored 12 goals in their last two games and they are back in their best form – and Jamir Carragher insisted that it will be very difficult for Everton to face their biggest rivals right now. The Toffees have got a new coach as Sam Allardyce took over and won his first match in charge 2-0 against Huddersfield – but this fixture will be far more difficult.
The former Reds defender spoke about his former side’s form as he said, according to Sky Sports: “Is there a feel-good factor going into it after what happened in midweek? Any player or manager coming into this city knows how important this game is. As a fan, you are a little bit nervous thinking Sam Allardyce has come in and Everton have picked up a little bit and could it change? But then you come here in midweek and watch how well Liverpool are playing and it has to give you confidence.”Opinion: Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – Given how much he’s been rejected by Real Madrid, we are convinced that Martin Odegaard is perfect for the Premier League.Martin Odegaard is finally…
He added that Sam Allardyce could possibly be an advantage for the guests: “Sam Allardyce will give the Everton supporters and players a bit more belief coming here. But they have been coming here a long time now and been finding it very difficult. He will make them more organised, you know that they had big problems defensively. But I think if Liverpool play the way they have been playing, they will be red-hot favourites. And I think Sam Allardyce will recognise that.”
In the end, Carragher claimed that the Englishman is very experienced and will know how to play against Liverpool: “He has been to Anfield many times with different teams and the last time he came, he won with Crystal Palace towards the end of last season. So yes, he will probably have a belief that he can come here and win, but Everton will also be well aware of the attacking talent Liverpool have got.”
