Lewis feels Mersey beat

Lewis Holtby is preparing for 'a dream game' at Liverpool on Sunday.

If selected, it will be the first time the midfielder snapped up from Schalke in January has appeared at Anfield.

It will mean that little more to Lewis as well as he revealed recently that his father, Christopher, is an Everton fan!

Both teams are in fine form. Liverpool have scored goals galore - 20 - in their last five wins in the Premier League and are up to seventh on a run of two defeats in their last nine.

We are on a run of 12 matches unbeaten in the Premier League and travel to Merseyside looking for a fifth win on the trot in league action, form that has seen us climb up to third.

“It’s a dream game, a fantastic game for us and another three points to aim for,” said Lewis.

“Anfield is a stadium I’ve always dreamed of playing in, it’s third against seventh and a really tough game but one we’re all looking forward to.”

Lewis came on for the last 20 minutes of Thursday night’s 3-0 win against Inter Milan in the Europa League Round of 16, first leg.

“It was a fantastic performance, the first half was incredible,” he said. “We had so much space and we created so many chances, we could have scored more goals. Brad Friedel did his job as well. We’re in great form and we’ve got to maintain it.”
