Regarding the upcoming game, Irwin said: “For me this is a loving opponent, and I know Moyes thinks the same way. I spent 11 and a half years in Everton in total and served in three different positions. The position, this club has a special meaning to me. But coming back here this time, obviously I want to get a satisfactory result of the game."
Regarding the recent team status, Irvine said: "We had a good offense last season and the total number of goals was probably seventh or eighth, but the problem is that we conceded too many goals. So we scored in the last Premier League 4 goals and keeping a zero cover is very important to us. If we can maintain the offensive standard and do a good job defensively, our ranking will improve this season.
