Everton manager David Moyes has tried to play down the importance of the first Merseyside derby of the season on Sunday. Liverpool visit Goodison Park for what has been dubbed by some a "six-pointer" due to both teams’ poor start to the season, which has seen them languishing near the bottom of the Premier League table.

Moyes though, dismissed suggestions that the three points are huge on Sunday.

"It can only ever be three points", said the Scottish boss. "Whether it’s a big three points, or a small three points. That’s all you ever get for a win."

Moyes also said Everton fans should not be concerned about the club’s current position in the Premier League. They currently sit just one place above Liverpool in 17th, but the Toffees’ boss is not worried.

"I don’t think anyone would expect Liverpool to be in this position come the end of the season, just like I don’t think people would expect Everton to be in this position."
