The Merseyside Derby has long been ferociously contested in the manner of a particularly bitter sibling rivalry. The Toffees haven’t gotten one over The Reds in a while, their manager on that day has been speaking of his admiration for his old rivals. David Moyes has described Liverpool as “the best team out there”.

Moyes was in charge of Everton for 11 years between 2002-13.

The Scottish gaffer left Goodison Park to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Now in charge of West Ham United, the ex-Everton and United boss has spoken of how impressed he is with Jürgen Klopp’s side.

Sky Sports reported David Moyes’ press conference comments when he told reporters:

“People will now be out to try and beat Liverpool. That’s what happens in football.

“I said it the other day, whoever the best team is out there someone is out there plotting how to beat them. All the managers are thinking ‘what system can I beat them with, what players can I beat them with?”


What RTK has to say

Even though it’s been a while since he was in charge of them, the Bitter Blues will be hurting after hearing one of their icons lavishing praise on The Reds.

Whilst Moyes is talking about coaches trying to figure out how to beat Liverpool, he couldn’t figure it out himself.

The Scot recently fell to a 2-0 home loss when Jürgen Klopp visited the London Stadium, the sides are set to face off again at Anfield on the 24th of February.

Will anybody figure out how to beat Liverpool? Likely not. This Reds side look set to finish the season without loss, it will take some major investment from other clubs in the summer if their supremacy is to be challenged.
