Everton boss Sam Allardyce insists the pressure is on his opposite number, Jurgen Klopp, ahead of tomorrow's Merseyside derby.

Allardyce, who missed the Toffees' midweek trip to Cyprus due to a medical appointment, will be back in the dugout for tomorrow's game at Anfield (Live Sky Sports, KO 2.15pm).

The former England boss has a good record against Klopp but he feels tomorrow is a different scenario.

"He shouldn't be too worried about me the way his team is playing at the moment," said Allardyce.

"If I was sat in his position with the players that he's got, it's a wonderful situation. You can't say, 'if we can block these one or two players off we will stop Liverpool'.

"It's more than that at the moment, there's four or five," he added.
