Preview: Liverpool vs Everton
Form will not matter in the Merseyside derby as Liverpool take on fierce rivals Everton at Anfield on Saturday afternoon
Liverpool began the 2016-17 Premier League season on a high note on the back of making eyebrow raising singings in the summer. However, unavailability of key players at different stages of the season have seen them become just a Champions League hopeful after looking the only side to give Chelsea a tough fight.
Everton, on the other hand, are making all kind of right noises in Merseyside following the arrival of Ronald Koeman and Farhad Moshiri takeover, with their decision to build a 50,000-capacity stadium bearing testimony to their growth.
Although qualifying for the Europe’s premier footballing competition is a long shot, they will be hopeful of proving surprise packages, especially since they sit just six points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
