The first Merseyside derby of the season takes place in interesting circumstances, with Liverpool attempting a Premier League title challenge and Everton languishing 11 points behind their rivals.
But his team’s league position didn’t stop Toffees boss Ronald Koeman from claiming his side could take all three points against Jurgen Klopp’s men in the final PL fixture before Christmas.
The signs aren’t good for Everton however: they’ve failed to beat Liverpool for more than six years in any competition, last beating the Reds in October 2010.
Both sides have responded impressively to setbacks, with Liverpool beating Middlesbrough 3-0 after a draw and a defeat, and Everton recording a victory against Arsenal after five games without a win.
An intriguing game awaits.
