Liverpool vs Everton 10/12/2017
Merseyside comes to a standstill as the city’s dominant two teams do battle at Anfield.
For Everton, they will keep knocking on the door for their first league win there since the crack of the millennium. Their last league win there was in September 1999. Since then, they have drawn eight and lost nine in 17 trips.
Should Everton end victorious, Sam Allardyce would have beaten Liverpool in the EPL as a manager with four different clubs (previously with Crystal Palace, West Ham and Bolton). The only other manager to do so is Harry Redknapp.
Liverpool have netted 17 goals in their last three matches, and are seemingly unstoppable when their attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Sane is in full flow. Don’t forget Philippe Coutinho too, the Brazilian who helped himself to a hat-trick in the 7-0 midweek demolition of Sparta Moscow.
The Reds will be without fullback Alberto Moreno after he suffered a knock in that big win, while Everton, who have carved out back-to-back league wins, welcome back defenders Phil Jagielka and Michael Keane
