Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti admits that the team needs to be perfect if Everton wants to defeat Liverpool in their FA cup clash.
“Every derby is a special game. I know how different this game is. Of course Liverpool is the favourite but in derby you never know what is going on. We need to have confidence to move on from this competition that everyone knows is important. The last time I played this competition I won so it can be a good luck for us.”
Ancelotti commented on what it takes to beat Liverpool.
“To score more goals. Jurgen is my friend. I have a good relationship with him. I had the luck to beat him last season and then they won the competition. In Napoli it was the same but we were able to do great performance. If we want to beat Liverpool we have to do a great performance – normal performance everyone knows is not enough. Everything has to be perfect – no mistakes, work hard, sacrifice, intensity. If we want to beat them the game has to be complete.
“Everyone knows how Liverpool plays, it’s a fantastic team. Fantastic counter-attack, in transition – you have to do a perfect game. You cannot defend 90 minutes and we do not want to defend 90 minutes. We want to have the possibility to play our football.”
