It’s a fixture the eye is drawn to each and every season and the first of 2021/22 is upon us, but the two teams head into the Merseyside derby in contrasting form.
While Klopp’s Reds are just two points off the top and with one defeat in the entirety of the campaign, Everton are six points from the relegation zone and last won on September 25.
It leaves Rafa Benitez under pressure and the hope will be that Liverpool can add to that this evening and Alisson will be out to do just that in goal.
