Romelu Lukaku is telling it as it is and the Everton forward is saying whoever is the hungrier between Everton and Liverpool will win the Merseyside derby on Sunday.
Everton who will be meeting their cross-city rivals for the first time this season, are without in their last ten encounters, but the win against West Brom thanks to Lukaku is the desired morale booster.
Everton del behind against West Brom by 2-0, but a brace from Lukaku inspired a comeback that saw them win 3-2.
“Monday’s win sets everything up really well but the derby is a different game,” Lukaku told the Liverpool Echo.
“It is about the personal pride and the pride for us as a club. The side that is hungrier is going to win this game on Sunday.
“We went back to Liverpool on Monday night and tried to recover as soon as possible. It was then that we started focusing on the derby.
“I will work hard on Sunday like I did at West Brom and whenever I go on the pitch I want to work hard, help my team-mates and help us win. I want to win the game and score.”
