Reds have Merseyside derby edge, says Liverpool legend Fowler

Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes the Reds'
recent record against Everton gives them the edge
ahead of Monday's Merseyside derby.
Jurgen Klopp's men make the short trip to
Goodison Park in the latest challenge in their
Premier League title bid.
Liverpool have not lost to their city rivals since
October 2010, when Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta
scored in a 2-0 Everton win, and battered the
Toffees 4-0 at Anfield in their last encounter in
April.
And Fowler, who scored 183 goals in 369
appearances for the Reds, told Omnisport: "I think
Liverpool will be confident going into the game.
Everton's run of form of late has not been brilliant.
"I think Liverpool probably have a little bit of a
shine over Everton in the last few years. You know
the old cliche 'form goes out of the window' for
derbies. I don't think that’s been the case for four,
five plus years.
"Liverpool have been the better team on paper
going into the game and have come out on top. I
hope it's going to be the case again.
"I don't think the games are ever easy, you have to
go out there and earn the result. I think they'll be
quietly confident."
Asked about his memories of representing
Liverpool at Goodison, he added: "From a players
point of view it's me scoring goals.
"I've been lucky to score a few there. Any time
you're a Liverpool player and you get a result there
I think that's what you want. So any good Liverpool
victory there would be a good memory of mine."
