Everton Vs Liverpool Head-to-Head
Liverpool are currently one of the Premier League top scorers, sitting behind Chelsea and Man City on the 3rd spot with 28 points. On the other hand, Everton players aren’t in great form this season, sitting on the 14th spot with only 15 points.
The teams have locked horns 9 times over the last 4 years in which the Toffees have only managed to win 1 game, losing 4 and drawing another 4. That said, Everton actually managed to win 2-0 against Liverpool in their last encounter, ending a 20-game winless streak against the Reds. They’ll surely want more of the same at Goodison Park this week in hopes of improving their Premier League standings.
Everton Vs Liverpool Team News
Everton Manager Rafael Benítez Maudes will be glad about Richarlison coming back from suspension, although Mason Holgate will have to forgo one more game due to a 3-match ban. Calvert Lewin, Yerry Mina, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes will be out due to injuries. Salomon Rondon will probably make way for Richarlison while Anthony Gordon could be dropped out if Demarai Gray is assessed fit to play.
As for Liverpool news, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino will be sidelined because of injuries, although this won’t bother Jürgen Klopp whose team has been in blazing form. The Reds manager will be reluctant to rotate much, keeping things simple in hopes of continuing their excellent form.
