Everton will make the short journey to Anfield on Sunday afternoon, as they face a Liverpool side who will be hoping to put their Champions League miseries behind them.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are currently four places and 11 points better off than their bitter rivals as they remain undefeated in the league this season. However, Marco Silva has never lost a Premier League game against his German counterpart, and will be hopeful of inflicting Klopp’s first domestic defeat of this term.
Check out 90min’s preview for Sunday’s clash below.

Head to Head Record
Klopp’s rampant Reds have had the best of it in recent times when it comes to Merseyside derbies. In fact, Liverpool haven’t lost in this fixture since 2010; that’s a run of 17 games without defeat. Admittedly, nine of the last 17 derbies have ended all-square, but what will be of greater concern to the Everton faithful is they haven’t won at Anfield since 1999.
Liverpool are one of two unbeaten teams left in the Premier League this campaign. However, they have been left to lick their Champions League wounds after losing three of their last four games in Europe’s elite club competition.
Klopp’s side will be expected to return to winning ways at a stadium where they have conceded just once in six Premier League games this season.
|PSG 2-1 Liverpool (28/11)||Everton 1-0 Cardiff (24/11)|
|Watford 0-3 Liverpool (24/11)||Chelsea 0-0 Everton (11/11)|
|Liverpool 2-0 Fulham (11/11)||Everton 3-1 Brighton (03/11)|
|Red Star Belgrade 2-0 Liverpool (06/11)||Man United 2-1 Everton (28/10)|
|Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool (03/11)||Everton 2-0 Crystal Palace (21/10|
Despite their Champions League setback, Liverpool should go into this game full of confidence. Having conceded just once at Anfield this year, they will hope to keep an efficient Everton attack at bay on Sunday. Everton and Marco Silva will be buoyed by the fact that Jurgen Klopp has never beaten a Silva side in the Premier League in two attempts; a record the Portuguese will be desperate to maintain come Sunday evening.
Everton simply have not been good enough on the road this term and there is no reason for that to change at a ground they haven’t won at for 19 years.
Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Everton
