Philippe Coutinho not worried about the Everton threat


Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho is not worried about the local rivals overtaking them in the race for the top 4.

Coutinho who is with Brazil at the moment is confident that the big team in Merseyside is Liverpool.

I don’t think about [Everton’s form] or worry about that,” said the player ahead of the Merseyside derby. “Right now, Liverpool is higher in the league, that’s the reality and that’s all we have to think about.

“We will be ready. The derby is a very special match for everyone, the fans and the players.

“We know what it means. The people of Liverpool live this match with so much emotion and this time it is even more because Everton have improved so much in recent weeks.

“We know it won’t be easy, but we know we have to win, for our fans, for our morale and for everybody.”
