Georginio Wijnaldum says he is expecting a battle on Sunday when Liverpool travel the short distance to Goodison Park to face Everton in the Merseyside derby. Liverpool go into the game top of the Premier League with a slender one-point lead over Manchester City.

The game at Anfield earlier in the season was a tight one, finishing 1-0 with Divock Origi scoring Liverpool’s winner in the 96th minute, and Wijnaldum is expecting another battle on Sunday.
