Take a look at the latest form and team news from the Merseyside neighbors:
Liverpool Form and Team News
EFL Cup Champions, second in the league by one point, in the FA Cup finals, and the semi-finals of the Champions League, Liverpool are having a season to remember. They are yet to lose in the league this year, with eleven wins and two draws and are the EPL’s highest goalscorers with 83 goals.
Klopp’s men are also yet to lose at home in the EPL this season and have put 33 goals past their last 11 visitors while conceding only two and keeping nine clean sheets. Mohammed Salah leads the Premier League’s goal-scoring chart and has been pivotal to the Reds’ quest for a four-trophy haul.
Liverpool will be without Roberto Firmino for the Merseyside Derby as he sustained a foot injury recently.
Everton Form and Team News
Frank Lampard’s men are in the fight of their lives as they look to escape relegation and hold on to their Premier League status next season. They are in dire straits, as they come up against a Liverpool team yet to lose in 2022, while they have only managed to play two matches without losing for the first time since October 2021.
With only one win in the last 25 Merseyside derbies, Everton will look to reenact a repeat of last season’s 2-0 victory but will have to arrest their poor away form, which has seen them lose their last six away games in the league. Richarlison has been a bright spot in a poor season for the Toffees, scoring seven goals and creating four.
Tom Davies, Andros Townsend, and Nathan Patterson are the players on the sidelines for Everton, and they will not be available for selection ahead of the Merseyside Derby.
