View from the manager, Neil Critchley

"We always look forward to the derby games. We are still in there fighting. Those two extra points against Arsenal would have made a massive difference but if we were to beat Everton we might take it down to the last game. Hopefully we can. If the football gods are smiling on us I think we deserve to take it down to the last game but we have to beat Everton and we will have to play well to beat Everton."

View from the player, Nat Phillips

"You don't really need to say much about the game if you are a Liverpool player playing against Everton. There's no added motivation required and I think everyone at the club knows what the game means and what you have got to put into it, never mind the impact a win would have on our chances of the title. Everyone is looking forward to it.

"You have got to stay cool and not let the emotions get the better of you so that you don't do anything rash. But at the same time it's a massive game and you want to take the positives out of those added emotions that you can into your game, and make sure you don't hurt your game. It's one of those, I think, in these games that whoever is the most committed usually comes out with the result, so we will see.

"Even though there's only two games left in the league there's still plenty for us to train towards, especially with the lack of players up at Melwood with injuries and there are opportunities there. We've all got plenty of motivation to train hard and give our best."
