Marouane Fellaini insists the squad is ready to pick up three points on Sunday.
Everton go into the 212th Merseyside derby on the back of successive defeats, having lost to Manchester United and Hull in the last week. Despite this, the 22 year old belgian wants to beat Liverpool at Goodison to give the fans something to cheer about.
“All the players here know it affects the fans a lot. If we lose they go into work on Monday and they are not happy. They have to put up with the taunts and the jokes,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
â€œWe simply have to win. If we lose I would have to hear the other fans celebrating and I donâ€™t want to have to shut my window. I want to win.
â€œI have played in big, competitive games in Belgium against Standard Charleroi and Standard Anderlecht which is the countryâ€™s big derby, so I know about how tough they can be but there is nothing to compare with the Merseyside derby.â€
â€œPeople say it wonâ€™t be pretty football but you never know. You canâ€™t predict these games and all you know is that it will be a great, great occasion.
â€œWhat makes it such an entertaining game is the absolute desire from both teams and it will be a brilliant atmosphere. I canâ€™t wait.â€…discuss this on the forums
