Marco Silva urges his Everton stars to 'enjoy' Merseyside derby against Liverpool

Marco Silva urges his Everton stars to 'enjoy' Merseyside derby against Liverpool

I'm working with a young group of players that has so much potential and wants to improve and want to develop.

With the Foxes winning their last six matches in a row after a last-gasp 2-1 success at home to Everton today, it is no wonder Rodgers has been linked some top jobs but, by his own admission, he has unfinished business at Leicester.

"Personally, obviously it was tough to take because I've made an error but I can learn from that which is good".

Being set up in the right way behind the scenes is so important in the modern game and that's what Leicester are getting right at this moment in time.

Even with a depleted squad and a frightful run of results over the first 14 games of the season, Silva was upbeat heading into what is, on paper, the Toffees' most hard assignment of the season against the Premier League leaders.

While Rodgers insisted he was "excited" to be at Leicester, he did not exactly shut down talk of a move to Arsenal, who sacked Unai Emery on Friday, admitting there was a "release clause" in his contract if one of the big boys came knocking. I feel like we gave it our all against Liverpool and with my little error, we got beat 1-0. This time, however, they are not just chiselling out results, they are playing with a flair that Ranieri's side often lacked.

The Swede took charge of the Gunners' 2-2 draw with Norwich on Sunday - but still thinks qualifying for the Champions League is still a possibility. The Nigerian forward assisted Jamie Vardy before scoring the victor at King Power Stadium.

On current form the Foxes are peerless and do not look like a side who will come crashing back to earth anytime soon. "The most deflating thing for me is we got beat against Liverpool, which is never nice", he said.

"That shows, for me, the belief that they know they are good players and we need to change the negative trend but for us with our run it was a hard game and the players did well". The best teams have spirit.

"Remember we don't have to speak about quality and quality differences, ".
