Everton boss Roberto Martinez says drawing Liverpool in the Europa League would be "phenomenal".

Everton have fared significantly better in Europe this season than neighbours Liverpool, who will join them in the Europa League in the new year following their elimination from the Champions League on Tuesday.

That opened up the possibility of the teams meeting later in the competition - sides from the same country are kept apart in the last 32.

"It would be a phenomenal football occasion if that happens," said Martinez. "I'm looking forward to when we meet them at Goodison in the league. Whatever comes, I'm sure it will be welcomed by everyone."
