'Panic stations' for Benitez as Everton set for 'big beating' - Agbonlahor
Liverpool will give Everton a “good beating” but it will not be a “big score”, according to Gabby Agbonlahor.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Aston Villa and England attacker insisted the two sides are “miles apart” in both quality and class.
Everton go into Wednesday night’s (1 December) game in the middle of a winless run of seven Premier League games after their 1-0 defeat to Brentford at the weekend.
They have not scored in their last four games and they will be without Dominic Calvert-Lewin for the visit of their Merseyside rivals.
Rafa Benitez also confirmed in his pre-game press conference Yerry Mina and Tom Davies are unavailable.
“It can only go one way, the teams are miles apart in quality,” Agbonlahor told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“Everton don’t look like they have got a way of playing. When I watched them against Brentford, there’s no way of playing. It’s panic stations, panic football with no way of playing.
“Liverpool are going to have a field day. I don’t think it will be a big score but it will be a big beating. Liverpool will be on top and have a lot of chances but I don’t think it will be a big score.
“Benitez will play a formation to stop Liverpool but it’s going to be an entertaining game.
“The teams are miles apart in class, it will be a good beating.”
In contrast to Everton’s woeful run, Liverpool have only lost once in the Premier League this term.
