Everton defender Patterson: I still have Diaz in my pocket!

Everton defender Nathan Patterson is still floating after his performance for their 0-0 draw with Liverpool.

Patterson enjoyed his battle with Reds winger Luis Diaz.

Ahead of Scotland’s Nations League clash with Ukraine, James McFadden spoke to the right-back about his first clash with Liverpool.

McFadden asked: “Did you let Luis Diaz out (of your pocket) after the game or is he still in there?”

Patterson then joked: “Aye, probably still.”

He continued: “To be fair it was a good game, he was a tough opponent.

“Obviously he’s a great player, he’s playing at a great club as well so it was obviously a challenge for me to go and show what I can do and try and nullify their threats, and I thought I done that.”
