Everton's commitment levels can not be questioned, says Silva

The 234th edition of one of English football's most famous fixtures takes place with the city's two clubs experiencing sharply contrasting fortunes.

Merseyside derbies have, in recent seasons, tended to be tight games and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not feel there will be any difference to that trend, regardless of Everton's form.

Nevertheless, Silva wants his players to grasp the opportunity presented to them this midweek and pursue the club's first win at Anfield since 1999. Instead, Everton will be without him and Liverpool should dominate the middle of the park.

"It will be tough". They are in a very good moment and maybe the toughest opponent we can face. They are top of the table.

"It's why you're there, you appoint the manager, who comes in, who goes out".

"The record for us is not good enough".

"Now it is time to continue the focus and to make the fans happy". "I know about 20 years without a win and because of that we have to look at the game as a good opportunity and do something the club didn't do for 20 years".

According to The Associated Press , he described it at the time as part of a "package of gifts" on the U.S. He also pointed to the denuclearization pledge Kim made at their first summit in Singapore in June 2018.

Everton acquitted themselves well on the other side of Stanley Park last season, eventually falling to a 1-0 defeat as Divock Origi netted an injury-time victor that was made possible by a freakish Jordan Pickford error. "Let's go there with big motivation, with big courage to play and to enjoy the challenge like we did last season". "This is a team that whether we're at 9-0 or 1-1, we want you here because we will go right to the end", he said. We didn't deserve it at all.

While he may not be able to help the Blues overcome their successful and in-form rivals on Wednesday, the club do face a better chance at winning with more options available to them.

"We were in a good moment in our season, with our full squad in good shape".

I don't care if he's fit Lyndon, the last thing we need is Schniederlin starting.

Everton ended Liverpool's previous run of 31 unbeaten games with a Wayne Clarke goal in March 1988 but Silva believes the performance at Anfield last season - minus the Jordan Pickford/Divock Origi finale in the 96th minute - provides more relevant hope for Wednesday.

"Theo will be okay for tomorrow", Silva explained in his pre-match press conference at Finch Farm.
