Liverpool boss Benitez denies rift with Everton rival Moyes

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez insists there's no rift with Everton counterpart David Moyes.

The pair haven't always seen eye-to-eye.

But ahead of the derby, Benitez played down suggestions of an uneasy relationship with Moyes.

"I always go to see him after a game, if I can, and he was in my room after the game three years ago," he said.

"Our relationship is normal. I don't have any problem with him. 'Everton have been close to the top four in recent years and are improving this season. Every game is really important for us now, and this derby is going to be extra special, because we are in that position where we have to win."
