Marco Silva held his weekly press conference on Friday afternoon as he prepares for his first Merseyside derby as Everton manager.
The Blues boss discussed Sunday's trip to Anfield, with his side bidding to extend their impressive run of form which has seen them collect 16 points from their previous seven Premier League matches to move up to sixth in the table.
Key topics included:
- The derby being a "special match" but the need for his team to be themselves and focus on the principles they have kept with so far: playing to win, to be strong and ambitious, and to enjoy the game.
- How Everton will respect Liverpool but will have no fear.
- No fresh injury concerns.
- How Ademola Lookman is doing all he can to push for a place in Silva's starting XI.
