Liverpool travels for potential “banana peel” Merseyside derby

Liverpool also has to win a local Derby this week in order to stay abreast in the hotly contested Premier League title race.

Everton welcomes Liverpool to Goodison Park today as Sean Dyche’s men will want to do everything to prove that the 6-0 Chelsea thrashing doesn’t represent who they are as professionals.

Despite it being a local Derby Liverpool rarely struggles against Everton, though Jurgen Klopp’s men have had a few narrow 1-0 wins, but those have been more down to bad luck in front of goal rather than struggling to control or dominate proceedings.

Liverpool sits in second place with 74 points and will go level on points with Arsenal with a win over Dyche’s Everton, though Arsenal’s walloping of Chelsea means that Arsenal now has a goal difference of 13 higher than Liverpool.

This means Klopp’s men are likely to remain second even with a win, except they can score up to 14 goals without reply against Everton.
