It’s another Merseyside derby today, this time at Anfield. The last iteration of this cursed fixture effectively crippled Liverpool’s season when Jordan Pickford scythed down Virgil van Dijk and put him on the injury list for the whole season. So your humble writer is not the biggest fan of this particular clash. There have been glorious exceptions in our recent history, of course, and hopefully today will be another to add to that list.

Liverpool return to Premier League action this evening when they welcome Everton to Anfield.
The Reds come into the game on the back of a hard-fought 2-0 Champions League win over RB Leipzig on Tuesday night, and currently sit sixth in the Premier League table.
Jurgen Klopp’s side will be without Fabinho, James Milner and Diogo Jota for the game, but Naby Keita could make his return from injury.
Kicking off at 5.30pm, and live on Sky Sports, Paul Gorst and Ian Doyle will be at Anfield to provide live updates on the action as well as bring you team news, analysis and reaction.
You’d have to go back to September 1999 for Everton’s last win at Anfield, but with Liverpool’s dismal domestic form, could this be the game the Toffees at last taste glory on a Merseyside derby away day? Follow our guide for all the ways you can get a Liverpool vs Everton live stream and watch the Premier League online, wherever you are in the world right now.
The Reds have not tasted defeat in the last 23 match-ups between these two local rivals – currently the host’s longest unbeaten run against any opponent in their history.
Both teams are battling out for a top four spot meaning there’s far more at stake than recent meetings, with the Toffees able to draw level on points with their local rivals should they pull off a win here.
With injury-hit Liverpool’s title defence in tatters – a defeat here would be the first time the Reds have lost four consecutive Premier League matches on the trot since the late Gerard Houllier’s reign back in 2002 – there’s unlikely to be a better chance for Carlo Ancelotti’s men to notch up an historic win.
Liverpool nevertheless come into this match off the back of a convincing midweek Champions League first-leg victory over high-flying Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, with recently under-fire keeper Alisson putting in an impressive display while under scrutiny.
Everton’s build-up to this clash has been less auspicious with two back-to-back home defeats, coming with a shock 0-2 loss to relegation-threatened Fulham at the weekend followed by a battling, but ultimately futile 1-3 defeat to runaway league leaders Man City on Wednesday night.
