The Merseyside derby. There’s nothing like it. And after a seemingly endless international break the city of Liverpool is gearing up for another titanic local tussle.
Now the players are back in the UK, both sets of fans are starting to get a little nervous for Saturday.
However, one side of Stanley Park is feeling perkier than the other right now.
Here are my thoughts on the action…
There’s a real buzz around Everton right now
As a staunch Toffee I can’t begin to describe how much Evertonians are loving life at the moment on and off the pitch.
Since their loss to Liverpool back in December, Everton have won eight and lost just one of the last 12 matches.
The Toffees were the biggest spenders in the January transfer window and last week’s news of a new stadium on the Liverpool waterfront just tops off a wonderful few months for the blue half of Merseyside.
