It’s one of football’s most intense and passion-filled rivalries and this weekend it’s takes on an even greater level of significance. Liverpool are neck-and-neck with Manchester City in the Premier League title race, while Everton are teetering on the brink of relegation unless they can put a run of good form together.
The Reds enter this showdown riding the crest of a wave having claimed the scalp of another great rivals in midweek, battering Manchester United 4-0 and briefly going atop the table, before Man City reclaimed first the following day after beating Brighton 3-0. So, it’s as you were entering this latest matchweek.
Everton meanwhile netted late on against Leicester City to grab a crucial point and give themselves something to cling onto, but Burnley’s 2-0 win over Southampton on Thursday night has just reignited this claustrophobic relegation battle, with just the point separating the Toffees from the dreaded bottom three.

Liverpool vs Everton: Match Stats
Mohamed Salah loves a Merseyside Derby. The Egyptian nabbed a brace in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Everton in the reverse fixture this season. The last Liverpool player to score 2+ goals in both league meetings against the Toffees in a single campaign was Dick Forshaw in 1925/26. He will be itching to match that near-century long milestone. He enters this showdown having had the most shots on target of any player in the Premier League this season (56), at least 15 more than his closest challenger (Harry Kane — 41).
Despite Liverpool’s dominance in this fixture over the past few seasons, they are actually looking to complete the league double over the Toffees for just the second time in the last 10 Premier League campaigns, previously doing so during this run in 2016/17.
