Neville Southall has urged Everton to not abandon Roberto Martinez’s principles due to recent form and insisted Everton should go to Anfield and “have a go”.

Via his blog with Paddy Power, Southall said: “It’s important that the players – and the fans – keep the faith with Roberto Martinez’s principles and we go out there on Saturday against Liverpool and attack”.

“We’ve had enough years of damage limitation at the club. I’d sooner us have a go and get beat 6-3 trying to win the game (like we did against Chelsea) than ‘manage’ a result when you go a goal down”.

“Sometimes you’ve just got to play yourself out of a difficult patch. I’d be worried if the Toffees were putting in poor team performances. But recent results have been more down to individual errors. A result against our biggest rival would be a massive confidence boost.”
