Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has ducked questions about who rules the roost on Merseyside.

Benitez was almost at pains to avoid discussing whether there had been a power shift in favour of Everton over Liverpool.

He said: "I cannot say this. What I can say is that Everton are doing well.

"I don't think it is fair for me to talk about one or the other one. I think it is fair for me to say that we are playing Everton and they are doing well.

"Moyes is doing a great job, they have good players and a good team spirit and it will be difficult for us."
