Funes Mori felt the Merseyside derby was a ‘normal’ experience for him, having benefitted from the Superclasico in Argentina.

Mori: “It has the same intensity as the Superclasico (River Plate v Boca Juniors) back home.

“The fans make it very intense and when they scream you know you are in a derby.

“In Argentina, I played around six or seven derbies so for me I felt normal and it was good.

“Premier League football is very physical and the intensity of the game is high.

“I have to keep adapting to the Premier League, but I really like it and I’m enjoying my moment and I want to keep playing.”
