No better time for Everton to end poor run in Merseyside derby

Everton manager Sam Allardyce said that Saturday's Premier League clash against Liverpool had come at the right time for his team as they bid to end an eight-year winless run in all competitions in the Merseyside derby.

Everton last beat their city rivals in 2010 but Allardyce is confident his team can succeed with Liverpool likely to make a number of changes ahead of their Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester City next week.

Juergen Klopp's side could be without top-scorer Mohamed Salah after the forward limped off with a knock in the second half of last Wednesday's first leg against City.
