In a lost season, where few games mean much anymore, this matchup in the Merseyside Derby remains of the utmost importance. The two halves of town meet an Anfield on Wednesday. Neither Liverpool not Everton are in a real position to make a run at the top four, but they will want to win this fixture anyway.
Blues manager Roberto Martinez quite obviously made a priority of both this game and the FA Cup on the weekend as he put out a weakened side to face Southampton on Saturday. So, dropping points here would be another hit against the gaffer's tattered resume.
What else is there to say? This fixture usually creates some moments of magic that the neutral will love. But for the respective Blues and Reds, this will be 90 minutes of torture. Enjoy!
