Sam Allardyce held his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon ahead of the 229th Merseyside derby.
The Blues boss spoke to the media at USM Finch Farm, with Everton going to Anfield on Sunday. Key points included:
- How Allardyce believes recent results have got Everton going in the right direction.
- The need to get it tactically right against in-form Liverpool, and that his side must be positive and "play our game".
- Being "massively impressed" by the players who helped the Blues to a 3-0 Europa League win against Apollon Limassol on Thursday.
- Phil Jagielka could be back available for Sunday after missing the past two Premier League matches due to injury.
