Everton vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture tonight

Follow all the action as Rafael Benitez faces his former club in the Merseyside derby

Klopp insists Merseyside derby is not Liverpool’s most important game

Follow all the action as Everton face Liverpool in the Merseyside derby this evening.

Rafael Benitez’s short-lived tenure at Goodison Park is coming under increasing strain, with the club having now lost five of their last six Premier League games. The travelling fans began to turn on the Spaniard after a miserable 1-0 at Brentford last weekend and Everton urgently need to produce a meaningful performance in order to alleviate the pressure, with the club currently languishing in 14th. They will benefit from the return of Richarlison up front, who can enliven the Toffees’ blunt attack after serving a suspension.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are in far higher spirits and could even finish the evening top of the table if they are victorious over their rivals and Manchester City slip-up at Aston Villa. Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored 10 goals in their last three games, with thrashings of Arsenal and Southampton sandwiching a comfortable Champions League victory over Porto. That has left the Reds just two points adrift of league leaders Chelsea, with Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane all in tremendous form. Follow all the latest updates live below:

GOAL! Everton 1 – 4 Liverpool (Jota, 79’)⚽️

79 mins: Oh my! James Milner sends the ball out to Andy Robertson on the left wing. He passes it into the box to Diogo Jota who leans on Allan before shifting the ball around the Everton midfielder to turn towards goal. He gets into space and blasts a left-footed strike past Jordan Pickford to seal the points for Liverpool!

Everton 1 – 3 Liverpool

78 mins: It looks like the former. Liverpool are passing the ball around comfortably despite the attempted press from Everton. A poor pass gives the home side the ball and it’s sent quickly up to Richarlison. He plays a blind first time pass across the front of the box hoping to play Gordon in behind Van Dijk but the Liverpool centre-back intercepts the pass and the attack breaks down.

75 mins: Gordon pushes Mane over on Liverpool’s left wing, Thiago is replaced with James Milner for Liverpool. 15 minutes to go at Goodison Park. Will Liverpool see out this game or is there another twist still to come?

73 mins: Andros Towsend is replaced with Fabian Delph by Rafa Benitez. The Liverpool fans can be heard singing and cheering in the stands, they’re enjoying themselves.

Delph’s first touch gives the ball away to Henderson who plays Salah in down the right. He tries to weave into the box but loses the ball.

67 mins: It’s going to be a difficult task for Everton now. Whilst there was only one goal between the teams they had a chance of getting something from the game but Liverpool won’t throw this lead away now.
