Liverpool resume their pursuit for the Premier League title when they take on Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Sunday.
Liverpool will have to wait a bit longer to lay their hands on the Premier League trophy after Manchester City’s win over Arsenal last week but they won’t complain given the league has resumed after the enforced break due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Everton will have to play a perfect game to beat Liverpool in Sunday’s derby at Goodison Park and home advantage no longer exists without fans in the stands, manager Carlo Ancelotti said on Friday.
Leaders Liverpool need six points to clinch their first title in 30 years and will be formidable opponents, having beaten Everton this season already in the league and FA Cup.
“We have to play a perfect game showing character, showing sacrifice, showing personality. To beat Liverpool you have to do more than 100%,” Ancelotti told reporters.
The match was confirmed at Goodison, rather than a neutral venue, last week after concerns about supporters gathering outside.
Merseyside derbies are always passionate affairs, with the home crowds creating a special atmosphere that will now be lacking.
