Liverpool defender Joe Gomez: No letting up from us

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez insists there'll be no relaxing from the Premier League leaders.

Gomez insists every player wants to face Everton in Sunday's FA Cup Merseyside derby as the feeling in the changing room is that no one wants to "chill" despite a busy festive programme.

"I think if you asked everyone in the dressing room they all have that desire to play every game and I think that is what is important for us in this team," said Gomez, who played in the 2018 FA Cup third-round victory over Everton at Anfield.

"There is a real hunger and you feel it. There is no, 'Oh I want to play this game and chill that one'.

"I think that shows and that is why when everyone comes in, the lads are playing well. They are really participating and helping the team."
