Confident Everton fan records song vowing Liverpool will be thrashed in derby
We think (we hope) at least some of this is tongue-in-cheek
First things first, we have no idea how serious this is. Because of that, we'll leave any opinions to you, dear reader.
What we will say is, given recent events, you probably wouldn't blame Evertonians for being slightly more optimistic ahead of this weekend's Merseyside Derby than they usually would be. Despite losing in midweek (and Liverpool making relatively light work of RB Leipzig), Everton head into the game with the chance to draw level on points with their local rivals, who, thanks in part to their depleted defensive ranks, have been through a miserable spell of form in the league.
This extra confidence might, therefore, explain this: a song by an Evertonian, vowing that Liverpool will be thrashed at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. Posted to Twitter by @PepperMills3, it takes the tune of Queen's We Will Rock You.
The choice of lyrics and some of the graphics included in the video suggest (we hope) that this is at least a little bit tongue-in-cheek. Something tells us plenty of the people who watch it before kick-off probably won't take it that way.

If Everton don't win, expect to see plenty more of this over the weekend.
