Marco Silva: ‘power’ of Merseyside derby win can give Everton confidence boost

Joe Gomez was deployed at right-back during the 2-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night but I think we should see Trent Alexander-Arnold coming back in to the side on Sunday. Of course it could be better, but it's not because of one player. I'm a defender and it's down to the team.

Goalkeeper: I don't think there can be any debate over who will start in goal as Alisson is certain to keep his place between the sticks with Simon Mignolet once again named on the bench.

"Absolutely. The players had the whole week together". Sometimes in a derby it is not always easy to see a very good game with big quality but the power of one derby means you can see good things happen after one result.

"I don't like to talk too much about players we don't have available, we know after Watford", he explained.

"We need to turn up on Sunday and do our talking on the pitch".

However, Everton are winless in the last 17 Merseyside derbies in all competitions - last picking up a victory against Roy Hodgson's Liverpool in 2010 - and have not won at Anfield since the turn of the millennium. We want to change and we want to win. "Past is past, we can do nothing to change the past but we can work well in our present to make well the future".

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. We have to prove it. We played well, we drew - it was a good result because Chelsea were unbeaten.

Shortly after moving to Everton, Digne claimed he had turned down two approaches from Liverpool in the past, adding that his "I never walk alone" chest tattoo had nothing to with Everton's fiercest rivals.

"Now, when we fix that, I can't say in the first moment to the boys: "But that's not enough offensively". They will miss captain Jordan Henderson due to suspension, however, they have Fabinho, Naby Keita, James Milner and Goerginio Wijnaldum to choose the midfield combination from.

"Before we played against Man [United], we played well before the referee made, for me, a mistake".
