Reid Has 'Sneaky Feeling'

Peter Reid says he has a ‘sneaky feeling’ that Everton will end their Anfield jinx in this weekend’s Merseyside derby.

Everton last tasted victory on Liverpool’s patch in 1999 – a famous 1-0 win courtesy of Kevin Campbell’s goal.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are unbeaten in their last five home matches – but Reid is confident his former club can claim the bragging rights on Sunday.

“Anfield is always a difficult place to go and get a result,” said the evertonfc.com columnist. “I’ve just got a sneaky feeling this year that it’s Everton’s time to go there and get a result.  

“It’s about time Everton won one – the law of averages says that we are due a derby victory and there would be no better place to achieve that than Anfield.

“I get asked quite often where it’s better to win a derby, whether it’s at Goodison or Anfield, and my answer is the same all the – it doesn’t matter which ground.”

Peter ReidReid in action against Liverpool in the 1984 Milk Cup final.

During his seven-year Everton career, Reid experienced the highs and lows of Merseyside derbies.

He was on the winning side on five occasions, three of which were at Anfield.

“I was fortunate enough to play in a few derby games,” added the Huyton-born 56-year-old. “For someone who was born in Merseyside, it was always a proud moment to be involved in those games.

“I remember winning a few at Anfield, games when Sharpy, Lineker and Rats scored. I think there was one derby when Grobbelaar let one through his legs too.

“On the other side of the coin, getting beat in them is not the best experience.

“When we lost in the Cup final in 1986, I didn’t get on the bus when we went on a lap around the city.

“It cost me two weeks wages but I wasn’t bothered because I was so disappointed missing out in the league championship and the FA Cup. I ended up having a few pints of Guinness in the Red Lion instead!”

Michael ConnellyHope Gibbo is fit for Sunday; he seems to play well in the big games. Suarez out obviously improves our chances. A draw should mean we finish above them, so that'll do me.
