- Alex Iwobi is optimistic that Everton can beat Liverpool in EPL tie
- The Nigerian explained that his side are ready for the big encounter
- Everton have not beaten Liverpool in Premier League since last 10 years
Nigerian football star Alex Iwobi is now determined to help his side Everton record incredible win over their tough rivals Liverpool when they meet in the Merseyside Derby.
Liverpool will go into this Premier League tie with the hopes of winning coupled with the fact that their rivals Manchester City have beaten Arsenal 3-0.
Jurgen Klopp and his men are just three games away from winning their first EPL title since the last 30 years which will be a superb record for the German.
Alex Iwobi who has been playing board games since the lockdown has now explained that he wants Everton to break the jinx by beating Liverpool.
October 2010 was the last time Everton beat Liverpool in a Premier League match and Iwobi believes that can change on Sunday, June 21.
“We have to accept it's not a great record and not a record we want to keep.
“Hopefully we can change that. Even though there are no fans, we are on our own turf and we don't need any more motivation.
“We are more familiar with the turf than they are. We are ready and hopefully can change the record on Sunday,'' Iwobi explained according to the report on Mirror UK.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard made it clear that current manager Jurgen Klopp deserves a statue in front of the club considering how he has been able to transform the side.
After 30 years of waiting, Liverpool are now on the verge of winning the League for the 2019/20 season with the Reds already established 25 points lead on the standings.
Despite his glorious years at Liverpool winning the Champions League, Steven Gerrard was unable to lift the Premier League title in his career.
Gerrard has now stated that Liverpool chiefs should immortalize Jurgen Klopp alongside the likes of Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley and Sir Kenny Dalglish.
Last term, Liverpool also fought for the Premier League title before they lost the crown to Manchester City on the last day.
