Everton held Leicester City to a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park on Wednesday in the Premier League.
Clinton Morrison believes it could be a “big” point for the Toffees, given he does not expect them to get anything in their next two games.
The Toffees’ next game is against Liverpool at Anfield, and fans are unlikely to be thrilled about the derby given Jurgen Klopp’s side’s current form.
Morrison said on the BBC Football Daily podcast: “That’s big for him (Richarlison). Big for Everton.
“As I said, it could be a big point for Everton, because you can’t see them getting anything in their next two games, definitely not on the weekend against Liverpool, that’s for sure.”
It’s a harsh reality at the moment, and fans are finding it difficult to get enthused about the Merseyside derby, particularly at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s team thrashed Manchester United 4-0 in their last match and are currently on a roll, looking for the quadruple.
Everton’s away form has been shambolic. The Toffees have struggled to pick up points, much alone win, away from Goodison Park under Frank Lampard, and it has been the team’s home form that has kept them going.
So, in some ways, Morrison is correct in that a favorable outcome for the Toffees at Anfield this weekend is unlikely.
The club should, however, aim to put up a spirited fight against Chelsea when the Blues visit Goodison Park on May 1.
The team’s home form has been better, and fans may expect at least a point in that game.
Against Leicester, it wasn’t a good performance from the home side, but what matters is the result. The Toffees are now four points ahead of Burnley, having played the same number of games.
