The Merseyside derby fight talk has already started, and Liverpool fans are absolutely loving the latest comments from Xherdan Shaqiri.
Shaqiri is beginning to look like one of the bargains of the summer, as the £13m ace has become the key to unlocking Liverpool’s front three.
The Reds’ electric trio were stagnant at the start of the season, due mainly to a lack of service from midfield, but Shaqiri’s introduction has transformed the attack.
The 5 ft 7 in winger has scored twice in the Premier League this season, and he’s certainly excited for next weekend’s derby.
If you haven’t seen Patrice Evra’s bizarre new Instagram post then you need to check out the video below…
Jurgen Klopp’s side face PSG on Wednesday before welcoming the Toffees to Anfield next Sunday, and the Swiss international is excited for his first taste of the rivalry.
“It’s my first derby so it’s going to be very special. I want to see and to feel the atmospheres in these derbies. I’m looking forward to it,” he told the Liverpool Echo.
“I know just one Evertonian. He said to me when I was at Stoke: ‘You have to come to Everton.’ I said: ‘No!’”
The dynamic winger scored a wonderful goal against the Toffees back in 2015, and fans are heaping praise on his sly dig before the derby.
