Jurgen Klopp’s reigning premier league champions Liverpool welcomes Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton to Anfield in what is a keenly anticipated Merseyside derby by 6:30pm today.

Liverpool have fallen out of the top four places following recent performances and now sit on 6th position, just a place above their merseyside neighbours. Although the Reds have played a game more than Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.

Klopp would be keen for his team to avoid defeat as any further defeat will see his team slip further down the table.

Everton on the other hand, would be keen to stop the rot, having lost their last two games in the premier league.

Everton seem to be having a nicer time in front of goals, with the team having scored 11 goals while conceding 13 in their past five games.

Liverpool meanwhile have scored 7 goals within that time frame while conceding nine goals. But then again, this is the Merseyside Derby.

Though, Liverpool are plagued with injury problems at the defence, but then Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 23 meetings with Everton in all competitions (W11 D12), their longest unbeaten run against an opponent in their history.

On current form of the two sides, a draw is also feasible. Liverpool vs Everton is the most drawn fixture in Premier League history, with 24 of the meetings between the sides ending level. The Merseyside derby has also seen more red cards than any other fixture in the competition (22)

Everton’s away form have also been good too, The Toffees are unbeaten in each of their last seven Premier League away games (W5 D2); they last enjoyed a longer such streak in March 2016 (8 matches).

Most of the game between the both sides have mostly ended in draws, going on a draw today would really be a bold one. But then, it iswhat it is.
