Everton playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson says he is looking forward to Sunday’s clash at Anfield with Liverpool which he knows will be a tough test for the Blues.
Everton go to Anfield in good form and on the back of a decent away showing at Chelsea which will boost confidence, while the home win over Cardiff won’t do any harm either.
It has, however, been far too long since Everton tasted victory at Anfield, and Sigurdsson will be doing all he can to change that fact.
The Icelander has been proving his worth this season after struggling to justify the £45m price tag paid for him last term.
Everton’s odds for Sunday have fallen to 11/2 despite not having won at Anfield since Kevin Campbell inspired a wonderful victory in 1999, and the two sides meeting twenty times at Everton’s former home since then.
“Things are looking good,” Sigurdsson told the Mirror.
“We’ve been working very hard since day one under the manager and are putting together some very good results.
“Sunday is another very big game for us. We want to make it a good one and we will be ready for the challenge.”
