Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher’s Roberto Firmino insight gives Everton derby advantage | Football | Sport
“It doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the result but it does need to be much improved as [the Villa game] fell way below the standards this team have set which has been phenomenal.
“I think the last 80 games before the Aston Villa game they had lost four which is scary when you think about it.
“So you have to almost accept the odd defeat now again but it was the manner of it that I think disappointed Liverpool supporters.
“I fully expect them to perform. Liverpool are a better team than Everton, I think Everton know that and if Liverpool play well, they will win. But there’s no doubt it’s a much improved Everton.”
Everton vs Liverpool in the first Merseyside derby takes place at 12.30pm as the Premier League returns.
