Liverpool player, Gini Wijnaldum, explains why the hostile atmosphere could work against Everton in the Merseyside derby



Gini Wijnaldum believes that a hostile environment in Goodison on Sunday will bring the best title to Liverpool.

The Dutch midfielder is pleased with the derby of Merseyside 233 as the aspect of Jurgen Klopp to keep the course of glory.

Wijnaldum knows that its neighbors will despair to launch a key in the play as Everton, who has not won a derby for nine years, tries to destroy the dream of the Liverpool title.

"Yes, but we want to defeat them too much," she smiled.

"So it works in two ways! I hope it will be a great fight.

"It will be an atmosphere totally different from a normal game, but we go there to play football and we hope you enjoy it.

"You use it to wait for it. It's great to win there. My first year here won here. So last year, we had two draws against the Everton, and we beat them in the cup."

Everton suffered a low season under Marco Silva but Wijnaldum insists that he will not count anything to come on Sunday.

The Blues will be fired by painful memories of the last meeting between the clubs back in December when Divock Origi scored a dramatic winner of the last pipeline in Anfield.

"It was a good game the last time we played. They were really good, better than every time I played before," said Wijnaldum.

"I do not expect them to be less motivated than before. I think it's going to be a tough game.

"They can have a bad career and something can change and make them good again.

"In the derby, his followers expect a lot from the players, they will support the players in the field. It is a game different for the others.

"This one is separate from everyone else. I do not think that the last two games are because of the atmosphere, the fans, the way everyone waves this game. The fans really want to win this game, and so we too."

Wijnaldum maintains a friendship with Everton football manager Marcel Brands, who signed it for PSV Eindhoven in 2011.

"I talk with Marcel from time to time," he said.

"But we did not talk before the final derby, maybe not this time. We talk occasionally!"

Liverpool will head to Goodison with confidence after the 5-0 win over Watford.

His fluency of attack came back when they created a succession of possibilities. Wijnaldum admits that it was the perfect answer to the tie with Manchester United.

"We started aggressively, we tried to attack and get many bodies in the box," he said.

"We try to counter-pressure when we lose the ball and then we play football. In the end, the result is five goals. It was a good night!

"I always have that feeling that he will click, but in some games he clicks better than others. Against Watford, he clicked well, Sunday not so well.

"I think the reaction was only because of the season that United had. If you collect a home point in United, it's usually a good result.

"But the situation they had, the way the game went, everyone already thought that Liverpool should win, especially with the substitutions in the first half.

"Everyone said it was an easy game and Liverpool should win, but it does not work like that. We started right there but we did not finish the game.

"Watford was better. Belief is always there. We just have to make sure that you click."
