Liverpool vs Everton: Premier League Match Preview, Predicted Line-ups and Dream11 Predictions

Liverpool vs Everton is the next Premier League Match as Liverpool keeps the pressure on City at the top while Everton looks to survive a relegation battle.

Liverpool vs Everton: Match Preview:

Jurgen Klopp's side have a Champions League clash against Villarreal to come in midweek but for now their focus will be on the Premier League, as they look to make up the one-point deficit to Manchester City.

The Reds have every reason to be confident too, having swatted aside Manchester United in their last match. Liverpool's defeat to Inter Milan last month, when they came through the tie on aggregate anyway, is the only match they have lost in their 25 games.

Everton, meanwhile, are in desperate need of points as they sit just one point clear of the relegation zone. Frank Lampard has said in the build-up to this one that he would be very happy with a point.

Team News:

Liverpool:

Despite being handed one of the most unforgiving spring schedules of any Premier League side, Liverpool's treatment room remains empty barring Roberto Firmino, whose foot injury will need assessing before Sunday's derby.

Klopp otherwise has a fully-fit squad available for the visit of Everton and will certainly consider shuffling the pack with Villarreal in mind, as Naby Keita, Kostas Tsimikas and Diogo Jota press for recalls to the first XI.

Thiago Alcantara was nothing short of phenomenal against Man United but may be one of the big names rested this weekend, while Joel Matip could hold his place over Champions League regular Ibrahima Konate for the time being.

Everton:

In stark contrast, Everton have been dealt a hammer blow with the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss the Merseyside derby due to a thigh issue which will keep him out for at least 10 days, while Donny van de Beek and Andre Gomes are fresh concerns too.

Van de Beek will miss out with a groin strain, with Gomes absent due to a similar issue, and Lampard is also dealing with the long-term absences of Andros Townsend, Tom Davies and Nathan Patterson to boot.

Dele Alli had a big part to play in Everton's equaliser off the bench in midweek, but Lampard will likely see no reason to alter his first XI, with Richarlison spearheading the charge in the absence of Calvert-Lewin and Fabian Delph holding his place in the middle.

Liverpool vs Everton: Head to Head:

Liverpool have a good historical record against Everton and have won 96 out of 239 matches played between the two teams, as opposed to Everton's 67 victories.

Liverpool have lost only one of their last 22 matches against Everton and will look to extend their streak this weekend.

Everton won this particular fixture by a 2-0 margin last season and ended a 20-game winless run away from home against Liverpool.
