Liverpool are set to take on Everton in the Premier League game on Sunday, 10th December 2017 at Anfield which is a huge game for Liverpool and their top for aspirations. Everton on the other hand will be hoping to continue their resurgent form under new manager Sam Allerdyce which makes it a exciting derby match, in fact the derby day in England as United also host City later in the evening. Liverpool vs Everton kicksoff at around 14:15 uk time and SKysports has live coverage of all three big games on Sunday.

Match Highlights: (Liverpool 1-1 Everton)

Everton have not beaten Liverpool at Anfield for best part of last 16 years and it looks highly unlikely considering both teams forms that it is going to change anytime soon. However with new manager Sam Allerdyce, Everton might put up a good fight and their only chance in this game will be if they can frustrate Liverpool for longer periods of time and catch them on the break.

Liverpool can go within just three points of second placed Manchester United who are playing Man City later in the evening. A win is a must for Liverpool if they were to continue staying in the top four. Everton can also jump into the top half of the table with a win.

Last time these two meet was in Premier League back in April 2017 when Liverpool ran out rather comfortable winners at Anfield thanks to goals from Coutinho and Origi. Everton will have to play out of their skin to get positve result against a free scoring Liverpool who are coming into this game on the back of scoring 15 goals in last three matches and conceding just one.

Liverpool 3-1 Everton – April 2017
[ Premier League 2017 Match ]
08′ 1 – 0 Sadio Mane scored early in first half in just 8th minute to make it 1-0 for Liverpool.
28′ 1 – 1 Matthew Pennington equalized just before halfhour mark for Everton.
31′ 2 – 1 Philippe Coutinho however put Liverpool right back in the lead minutes later in what was a very exciting Merseyside Derby.
60′ 3 – 1 Divock Origi ensured the three points midway through second half.

Team News & Lineups: Going into the game Jurgen Klopp will have Daniel Sturridge back in the squad and might find a place on bench considering Divock Origi’s goal scoring form. Firmino, Origi and Mane set to start upfront while Lallana, Henderson and Wijnaldum to play in midfield for Liverpool. Klopp is likely to keep Simon Mignolet in goal after dropping Karius against Middlesbrough.

Everton on the other hand can not wait for January transfer window to kick in as they are close to signing Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay on loan from United. But for now they will have to stick with what they have and we can expect unchanged side apart from Gareth Barry who was sent off against Arsenal. This is how I expect both teams to lineup on Monday night.

Match Predictions: When these two teams meet form leading up to the game goes out of the window and this is the case this monday night. Both teams are well rested with extra couple of days available to them and I expect a tight game where 1 goal might decide it. Liverpool are playing some scintillating football at the moment and I am going with them to take all three points in this game
