It’s fair to say that Liverpool fans were pretty happy with the FA Cup third-round draw on Monday night, as they will face city rivals Everton.
In the pick of the fixtures, the two Merseyside clubs will battle it out at Anfield in January, with the two sides currently preparing for the derby in the Premier League this coming weekend.
Although they’ve shown signs of improvement with two consecutive wins in their last two games, it’s been a miserable campaign for Everton to this point as they weren’t too far off the bottom three not so long ago.
Add to that their exit from the Europa League in the group stage, it was an unhappy time for former boss Ronald Koeman and temporary replacement David Unsworth, with Sam Allardyce now the man tasked with leading an improvement in their performances and results.
While Liverpool will look to inflict further misery on their rivals on Sunday, the Reds faithful are evidently in confident mood and looking forward to the FA Cup meeting next month, as seen in the tweets below after the draw was made.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are in fine form themselves, going eight unbeaten in all competitions, scoring 25 goals in that time and conceding just six, and so if that kind of form continues into the New Year, the confidence of their supporters will be understandable as they can’t wait to face the blue half of Merseyside already it seems…
Who’ve we got in the 4th round?
