Ian Wright believes Liverpool FC will have too much attacking prowess for Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were 7-0 winners against Russian side Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Liverpool FC have scored 12 goals in their last two games after the 18-time English champions were 5-1 winners at promoted side Brighton and Hove Albion last weekend.

The Reds scored more goals than every Champions League team in the group stage except for French club Paris Saint-Germain this term.

In the Premier League, only Manchester City and Manchester United have scored more goals than Liverpool FC in the title race.

Everton have worryingly conceded 28 goals in 15 games in the Premier League this term, although Sam Allardyce’s appointment will bolster their defence.

Former Arsenal striker Wright tipped Liverpool FC to ease past Everton in the Merseyside derby on Sunday afternoon.

“At Anfield, it will be a really tough ask. I think Liverpool are going to beat them,” Wright told The Debate on Sky Sports on Tuesday night.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a return to the Champions League.

Mohamed Salah is Liverpools’s leading scorer with 12 goals in 15 games in the Premier League this season following his £39m move to Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window.
