Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says his players will be up for the derby against Everton.

Liverpool were held 2-2 by Aston Villa on Saturday, but Rodgers doesn't expect Everton counterpart Roberto Martinez to read much into the result.

"He will know how I work and knows how my teams work.

"But he will know it will be a totally different game here for the derby. It wasn't one of our better days (against Villa), but we've had many great games here.'

Speaking to the Daily Post, Rodgers added: "We'll be ready for the derby game for sure."
