No matter where either team sits in the standings, this fixtures remains immensely important to both clubs and their supporters. Everton, currently in ninth place in the league, need to earn points if they are going to catch Burnley in seventh. Liverpool, sitting in third, would like to catch second-place Manchester United, but it is even more important that they don’t slip below Tottenham Hotspur into the final Champions League spot.
The Toffees haven’t won any iteration of this match since October, 2010. In fact, they have been embarrassed by their red-clad counterparts in recent years. The two sides did draw 1-1 at Anfield back in December. However, Liverpool were the victors in their FA Cup meeting in January thanks to a late Virgil Van Dijk goal in his club debut.
