The Merseyside derby is here!

Liverpool and Everton clash in a big Premier League match at Anfield this Saturday. However, it has not been the case for the majority of their games as the Reds just walk all over their Blue counterparts. This Merseyside derby divides fans- families, players, and even coaches. In this case, it is Jurgen Klopp vs Sean Dyche.

Liverpool are ahead in the standings. But in their last game, they drew against Brighton, and their defense struggled. If Liverpool win this match, they will go atop for some time and depending on results in other games as well.

Everton, on the other hand, had a recent 3-0 win but have been inconsistent this season. Further, Liverpool has been strong at home, winning all their home games this season. While the Toffees seem to have found their scoring prowess back, their conversion rate has been one of the lowest. So, it will be interesting to see how these two rivals vie against each other.

Players to watch out for

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

Salah has been on top from in the Premier League this season

Don’t lose sight of Mohamed Salah when he’s on the field. The Premier League Salah, since signing for Liverpool in 2017, has hit the ground running differently. Consistent, by all means! The Egyptian King has truly made the league/competition his. Coming off the back of yet another solid showing against Brighton, a brace. Fans will be expecting him to show the Evertonians their place on the weekend.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton)

This Englishman might be one of the underrated ballers in the country. Dominic Calvert-Lewin has somehow managed to find the back of the net twice in a season where the Toffees are really lagging behind. 2 goals in 5 games for DCL, while his team languishes in the last place and he has had injury to tend to as well. So, the Evertonians will look up to him. Not only to win bragging rights but to also start a comeback this season.

Match facts

  • This match will be the 294th Merseyside derby.
  • Goodison Park is less than one mile from Anfield. The two stadiums are separated by only a short walk across Stanley Park.
  • Liverpool has just lost once in the last 25 Premier League meetings against Everton, and that being the 2-0 loss at home they suffered back in February 2021.

Injury and team news

Liverpool anxiously awaits news of Andy Robertson's shoulder injury following Scotland's match against Spain. Kostas Tsimikas is set to step in for the upcoming derby, while midfield faces absences due to injuries and suspensions.

On the Everton side, Coleman and Alli work on recoveries, while Andre Gomes has an uncertain status. Idrissa Gueye's performance may lead to a selection challenge for Dyche, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is expected to take the number nine spot.
