Everton vs Liverpool: Premier League preview

Sat 14th in the table, Everton come into the game off the back of seven defeats in their last ten games across all competitions, with no wins in seven.

In formulating how to beat third-placed Liverpool at Goodison Park, Benitez may know that the only route is to outscore them. Jurgen Klopp’s side have hit at least two goals in each of their last 17 matches in all competitions and cruised to a 4-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.

A win would put the Reds top if Chelsea and Manchester City slip up at Watford and Aston Villa, respectively. But either way a victory would be their fourth in a row.

In derby matches, Everton claimed the last meeting with a 2-0 win at Anfield – ending a 20-game winless run in the league. Yet they have not beaten Liverpool in the league at Goodison since October 2010.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Everton vs Liverpool is scheduled for an 8.15pm GMT kick-off on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

Everton vs Liverpool team news

Jurgen Klopp confirmed ahead of the game that Roberto Firmino is still a week away from a return from a thigh injury with Joe Gomez (calf) and Naby Keita (thigh) nearing their comebacks to full training.

The Reds picked up no fresh injury issues on the weekend but are without Harvey Elliott (ankle) and Curtis Jones (eye).

Everton could do with having Dominic Calvert-Lewin back from a thigh problem this week as the striker nears his recovery, with Yerry Mina (thigh) also not thought to be far off. Tom Davies (knee) and Andre Gomes (calf) remain out.

Mason Holgate is suspended but Richarlison is back in the mix after serving his one-game ban at Brentford.

Everton vs Liverpool prediction

Form often goes out the window in derby matches but Liverpool really do have a stranglehold on the Merseyside contest. With Benitez’s side simply unable to score at the moment, the visitors are the heavy favourites.
