KENNY DALGLISH has revealed his respect for Everton manager David Moyes.
The Reds boss believes his fellow Scot deserves great credit for the work he has done at Goodison and is expecting the Blues to make life difficult for his side tomorrow.
“Moysie has done a fantastic job and we’ve got a great deal of respect for David Moyes and also for the football club,” Dalglish said.
“He’s a good lad and we know him well but come Saturday the two of us will be rivals and that’s the way it should be. Afterwards we’ll have a drink and move on.
“Everton have done well. They were a wee bit unfortunate last week that they had to go to Manchester City on Saturday after playing extra-time on the Wednesday night.
“Although they lost, they put on a very resilient performance. We know they are going to stand up and be competitive and we need to match that.
“We will try to play the way we want to play while trying to stop them playing the way they want to play.”
Meanwhile, Dalglish insists he’s unconcerned about the Reds’ lack of clean sheets – as long as the goals keep flying in at the other end.
Pepe Reina has been beaten in seven of Liverpool’s eight games so far this term.
He said: “I wouldn’t say we’re worried about it but it’s always nice to have your opposition with a ‘nothing’ after their name, isn’t it?
“It’s something we’ve got to continue working on but if we keep scoring more goals than the opposition then fine.
“Last week against Wolves we might have been under pressure but for me we had by far the most chances.”
