Everton striker Cenk Tosun has spoken to Turkish TV Channel S Sport, as covered by Sabah, and said he expects his side to beat Liverpool when both sides meet on Sunday.

Tosun also said he wants to stay at Everton as he feels he can get his chance under Carlo Ancelotti next season but if he fails to do that, then he might look to play elsewhere considering the European Championships next summer: “I actually have a good relationship with Carlo Ancelotti. He didn’t want me to leave but I was thinking Euro 2020 at that time. He wasn’t playing me, but I was always giving my best in training.

“If I have a chance, I want to continue at Everton, but if I’m not, then I will look for other opportunities. I believe if I return strongly, I might have a chance to play at Everton for next season. I want to play together with Calvert-Lewin in a 4-4-2.”

The Turkish striker also said there’s full Toffees concentration on beating Liverpool this Sunday, and he believes Everton will win the game 2-1.

Since arriving at Goodison Park the Turkish international has failed to hold down a regular place in Everton’s starting eleven, especially this season. Subsequently he was loaned to Crystal Place during the last transfer window, but he picked up a serious knee injury whilst training with the Eagles.

There have been reports linking the player with a return to the Turkish Super Lig, although he’s gone on record to say he wants to remain in the English top flight.
