Just how much worse can Liverpool’s season get? After being beaten twice by Brighton in quick succession, the Reds were humiliated last weekend as they were thumped 3-0 by Wolves.

It was a result that showed the damning reversal of fortunes for Jurgen Klopp’s men this season. Yes, they have suffered from a large number of injuries, although they have been founding wanting across the team.

A top-four finish now looks unlikely, despite having two games in hand on many of the teams above them. A win in the Merseyside derby would be a start, however.

For Everton, they will hope that last weekend’s victory over Arsenal was the start of their road to recovery. They put in arguably their best performance of the season to overpower the league leaders.

With Sean Dyche at the helm, many would now assume that the Toffees will reach safety this season, although there is still a long road ahead of them.

Liverpool FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Lost just one of their last 22 home games to Everton

     Diogo Jota may be available to make his long-awaited return from injury

Reasons to be fearful:

     Winless in four league games in 2023, as well as going three games without a goal

     Injury woes continue as Thiago is doubtful in midfield

For the first time in many a season, Liverpool will be genuinely worried that their arch enemies could beat them at home.

Despite Everton’s struggles, we know the effects a new manager can bring on a team and the Toffees will be optimistic of a result here.

The Reds will hope that form counts for nothing in a derby game, but they must up their performance levels significantly based on recent viewing.

Diogo Jota, whose dynamism and goals have been missed during his injury layoff, could return to action here. On the other hand, Thiago may miss out through injury in midfield.

Star Man – Mo Salah

There have been no standout players for Liverpool lately, but Mo Salah is still their most dangerous player. The Egyptian has four goals and an assist from his eight games against Everton.

Everton FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Could win consecutive games for the second time this season

     Must use last week’s win over Arsenal as a base for this game

Reasons to be fearful

     Won just two of their last 27 games on the road

     Scored just once in their last six away matches

The spirit that Everton showed last weekend against Arsenal was nothing short of fantastic. 

You wonder where it was when Frank Lampard so badly needed it when he was manager. Sean Dyche is a different boss altogether and he’ll know how to get the best out of his players.

They won’t always be able to play like that, but they’ll know that they must give their all in every game. 

Everton have a dreadful record against Liverpool over the years. However, this may be their best chance of turning over their close rivals in years, considering the shape that Liverpool are in currently.

Unfortunately, Dominic Calvert-Lewin is a doubt due to a hamstring problem, so Demarai Gray could get the nod from the start, as could Neal Maupay.

Star Man – Amadou Onana

Onana was a sensation in the win over Arsenal, covering virtually every blade of grass and driving his team forward. He could punish Liverpool’s weak midfield in this game.

     Midfield battle will be interesting

     Can Everton bring same intensity as last week?

     Another Liverpool defeat would bring chaos

Much has been made of Liverpool’s weak midfield this season. Everton have Onana and Doucoure, two powerful players in that area that can make life difficult for their opposite numbers.

The midfield battle will be interesting here and whichever team comes out strongest in that area will likely win the game.

The Reds carry the greater threat going forward and, at home, are the favourites to win. It would be a disaster if they lost this one.
