Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina hints that he will be fit for the Merseyside derby this Sunday after struggling with a hamstring injury.

Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina has insisted that he is "getting better" and could be fit for the Reds' Merseyside derby against Everton this weekend.

The 30-year-old was absent for Liverpool's 1-0 win over Reading on Saturday due to a minor hamstring injury that he picked up while on international duty with Spain.

"I'm getting better, little by little," Reina told the club's official website. "It wasn't worth taking any risks because you risk it getting worse. I'll be patient and get really good."

The Reds head into this Sunday's Merseyside derby in 12th place in the Premier League table, while Everton currently reside in fourth position.
