The Merseyside derby returns to our television screens this evening, as Liverpool welcome city rivals Everton to Anfield. With the hosts being unbeaten in the last 10 league meetings between these two sides, the Toffees will be looking to set the record straight, but can they overturn their current miserable run of form?
Confirmed starting line-ups:
Liverpool – Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Sakho, Moreno; Lucas, Milner; Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino; Origi
Everton – Robles; Oviedo, Stones, Funes Mori, Baines; McCarthy, Barry; Mirallas, Barkley, Lennon; Lukaku
The form guide gives some indication into what to expect from this one – and it makes for positive reading if you are a Liverpool fan. Indeed, Roberto Martinez’s Everton have won just three points in their last six Premier League games (W0 D3 L3), while Jurgen Klopp’s side have won five and lost just one of their last seven top flight matches (W5 D1 L1).
This tie is likely to see a return to the Toffees starting line-up for Belgian international Romelu Lukaku. He has scored five goals in his last seven Premier League appearances against Liverpool. Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino will be looking to continue his fine form, having been involved in 12 goals in his last 10 top flight games (8 goals, 4 assists).
