Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi is confident that Everton have one key edge over Liverpool in this evening’s Merseyside derby at the Goodison Park.

The fierce Premier League match will be held behind closed doors, but the Hale End Academy product has stressed that playing in their home will be key for the Evertonians, even if there are no spectators in the stands.

The Goodison park lords last seven games in the Premier League at home have ended in fifteen points out of a possible 21, winning four and drawing three – and three of the big six Premier League teams Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are among the host of teams that visited the Goodison Park.
Iwobi said to Everton’s official webpage:
“These are the games when you see how good a player you are and we are ready for the challenge,”

“Even though we have no fans there we are on our own turf and more familiar with it than Liverpool.

“We like to play in front of our fans, especially in a game like this, but we will adjust.

“Growing up, we were used to playing in parks with no one there, or just family watching… we will adapt and enjoy our football.”

Everton have been able to hold their ground at the Goodison Park whenever Liverpool visit I the last two years as the Merseyside derbies played at the Goodison Park since 2018 ended in a stalemate.

There has been two Merseyside derbies this season, one in the English Premier League and the other coming in the FA Cup. Liverpool came out Victorious in both with a 5-2 win (EPL) and a 1-0 (FA Cup) win.

Since his acquisition, Iwobi scored has found the back of the net twice and the two goals came in his first two starts for Everton. He’d be looking forward to adding to his two goal tally since September 1.
