Football: DOUBLE TROUBLE FOR LIVERPOOL.

Byline: BILL MILLS

DAVID MOYES is aiming to land a double whammy on rivals Liverpool by holding off their charge for fourth place - and ruining their summer spending plans.

The Everton boss wants to blow open the Premiership monopoly and he reckons robbing one of the big four of their Champions League slush fund is the best way to do it.

Moyes is desperate for his side to return to winning ways against Palace today to rob Liverpool of the cash that has already been earmarked for an Anfield spending spree. He said: "Champions League football would be good for Everton and it would also severely dent another team in the Premiership.

"If we can take a top-four spot it will start affecting what other teams can do.

"It might mean Everton can change the monopoly. It's going to be hard to stop the top three but we could drag the team that is fourth or fifth back into the pack and that will be beneficial.''

Meanwhile, Moyes is set to offer Duncan Ferguson a pay-as-you-play deal this summer.
