While he acknowledges Liverpool's dominance of the Premier League this season, the Goodison centre-back doesn't want to see them party.
He said: “I'll be a long way from Liverpool, yes, I think so! To be honest, I don't think I want to be anywhere near that!
“But they have done well, there is nothing you can say about that.
“If they win it, they will have deserved to win the title."
“Obviously we play them next week and we look forward to that type of game.
“The rivalry is important when we play against them but when we are not playing them, we just have to concentrate on ourselves."
