Everton face their first big opponent since going on their recent run where they picked up three wins in four games, and the games don’t come much bigger than the Merseyside Derby.
Liverpool are one of the form teams in the league right now and the Blues’ recent revival is certainly going to get put to the test. The Reds do have a couple of injury concerns and some players getting back late from international duty could factor into Jurgen Klopp’s side selection and tactics.
The Toffees have a pretty miserable record at Anfield, and aside from a COVID lockdown 2-0 win there, have had little to cheer about. Sean Dyche for one will be under the spotlight - will he go with the safe and conservative option that will likely still ship goals, or will he get bolder and attempt to play positively in the hopes of snatching a point or three?

The Toffees do not have a good record at Anfield, the last two games there ended in 2-0 wins for the Reds including back in February this year when it was becoming apparent that the Blues were going to be in relegation trouble.
