Brendan Rodgers: Liverpool boss relishing derby clash with Everton

Martinez was in the stands at Anfield on Saturday as the Reds produced a faltering first-half performance against Villa.

Rodgers' side trailed 2-0 after 36 minutes, but fought back and grabbed a draw through goals from Daniel Sturridge and Steven Gerrard.

Despite the lacklustre showing, Rodgers said: "(Martinez) will know how I work and knows how my teams work.

"But he will know it will be a totally different game here for the derby.

"It wasn't one of our better days (against Villa), but we've had many great games here."

With Liverpool tackling Everton at Anfield on 28 January, Rodgers added: "We'll be ready for the derby game for sure."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
