Coleman embarrassed by Everton’s dismal Merseyside derby record

Seamus Coleman has said that Everton’s record against their Merseyside rivals Liverpool is nothing short of ’embarrassing’.

Everton haven’t beaten Liverpool since 2010 and have failed to win at Anfield this Millennium, with their last victory at the home of their Merseyside rivals coming all the way back in 1999.

The Toffees will be hoping to finally put an end to that miserable record next Sunday when they take the short trip across Stanley Park, and do so in good shape, sitting in sixth place in the Premier League, six points off the top four.

Blues right-back Seamus Coleman has revealed that Marco Silva’s side are full of confidence but admitted that their record is nothing to be proud of.

“It is quite embarrassing that is the last time we beat them,” said the Everton full-back.

“Look, I don’t want to say the same old things I have said before every derby and then we don’t turn up. We have to turn up and do it on the pitch.

“We don’t want to make all the headlines and then the fans go we have heard that before.

“Honestly, we are full of confidence.

“We won’t change the way we play, like maybe we have in the past – it won’t be a case of going there for a draw.”
