I’M UP FOR A ROD-DING
JACK RODWELL says Everton are desperate to leapfrog Liverpool by winning the Merseyside derby.
Everton’s defeat at Man City and Liverpool’s win over Wolves allowed Kenny Dalglish’s men to jump above the Toffees in the Premier League table. But Rodwell (left) has set his sights on Everton regaining the bragging rights and swapping positions after Saturday’s Goodison clash.
The midfielder said: “We have made a decent start and got some good victories under our belts, so we won’t get too down about the City result.
“We had a Carling Cup match the previous week, which went to extra time, so that was a hard workout.
“Man City was again another hard workout, but we will have a rest, get in a good week’s training and bounce back for the derby.”
