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.”
