Liverpool ace Wijnaldum enjoys Everton swipe: They look up to us. Not in our league

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum has enjoyed mocking Everton over their problems this season.

Wijnaldum has dismissed Everton's hopes of comparing with their city rivals because they don't compete for titles.

Everton find themselves 11th in the table and just seven points clear of the relegation zone.

"Yes of course, Manchester United are one of the biggest teams in England. The rivalry between us makes this game even better," Wijnaldum said at a Hugo Boss event on Thursday night.

But then he decided to throw barbs at the blue side of Liverpool.

"The game against Everton is a big one, I think bigger for them because they look up to us and we are looking more to Manchester United because we are playing for the titles.

"Maybe silly to say but Everton are not really a competition in the title for us so maybe that's why we look differently to Everton than Manchester United."
