​Liverpool midfielder Thiago: We'll approach Everton like every other game

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara is calm about the upcoming Merseyside derby.

The Reds are in fine form, defeating Southampton 4-0 at Anfield on Saturday.

They are within touching distance of the top of the league, but have the smaller matter of a game against their bitter rivals Everton on Wednesday at Goodison Park.

Thiago told the club's website: "It's a derby, it's always special. We have to have in our mind it's another Premier League game that we have to give [our] all. It's our mindset.

"It doesn't matter, it's a derby for the crowd. For us, it's just a game that we have to play now away.

"It's the moment of the season that we were waiting for, to play every three days, have less training for sure.

"But we want to play football. It doesn't matter if it's in one, two, three days, we just want to play football."
