Baines says time for Everton to break Anfield hoodoo

Everton fullback Leighton Baines says it's time to break their Anfield hoodoo this weekend against Liverpool.

Anfield has been an impregnable fortress for Everton since they last won on enemy territory on September 27, 1999.

Baines said: "We have gone there in form but not come away with the wins that we perhaps should have done. It's a tough place to go. I wouldn't say we feel intimidated.

"Look at Fulham. They have got a poor record at Goodison but I doubt they are affected psychologically coming here.

"We haven't had enough results there (Anfield) and we have got to try and put that right."
