Liverpool’s quadruple challenge continues this afternoon as they take on Everton in a huge Merseyside derby.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have a Champions League clash against Villarreal in midweek, but for now they will focus on the Premier League, as they look to close the one-point deficit to Man City.
The Reds also have every reason to be confident, having crushed Manchester United in their last game. Liverpool’s loss to Inter Milan last month, when they managed the aggregate tie anyway, is the only game they have lost in 25 games.
Everton, meanwhile, are desperate for points as they are just one point clear of the relegation zone. Frank Lampard said in the run-up to this one he would be very happy with a point.
The Toffees won on their last visit to Anfield, however, in February last year, ending a 22-year winless streak at their rivals.

Liverpool vs Everton team news
Roberto Firmino could well be involved for Liverpool as they look to make a comeback from a foot injury.
Speaking on Friday, Klopp said: “Bobby, getting better and better. It’s just uncomfortable, painful.
“Today is his first day on the pitch, so there are still two days left, so maybe.”
There are now other injury issues for the Reds to worry about. Naby Keita, Diogo Jota and Ibrahima Konate could all come in if the Liverpool boss decides to mix up his pack.
Donny van de Beek, Andre Gomes and Dominic Calvert-Lewin will all be absent for Everton on the short trip to Anfield.
Richarlison should therefore continue in the lead, with Fabian Delph alongside Allan in midfield. Dele Alli hopes the injury problems could give him a few more minutes in the upcoming matches.
Liverpool vs Everton Prediction
Few, if any, teams in the world currently seem capable of slowing down Liverpool’s momentum.
The Reds were at their best against Man United and while Everton will be looking to frustrate their arch-rivals, it’s very hard to see them keeping Klopp’s side quiet for very long.
Liverpool win 3-0.
