Match Preview: Everton vs Liverpool on 1/12/2021
Everton welcome Liverpool to Goodison Park in the Merseyside derby this evening.
Rafael Benitez may find more affection stemming from the away corner, having endured a miserable run as of late.
The Toffees have lost five of their last six Premier League games and the club’s supporters showed their discontent after a miserable 1-0 defeat by Brentford last weekend.
The mood could hardly be any different for Jurgen Klopp’s side, whose 4-0 victory over Southampton completed a run of three victories in the space of eight days, with Arsenal and Porto also brushed aside.

What is the team news?
Richarlison is available after serving a suspension, although Mason Holgate still has one game remaining of his ban. Dominic Calvert-Lewis, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes are sidelined while Yerry Mina is a doubt.
Liverpool are without Roberto Firmino, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott, who are all injured.
Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Digne; Townsend, Allan, Doucoure, Iwobi; Gray, Richarlison
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mane
Everton – 7/1
Draw – 4/1
Liverpool – 4/11
Despite what will be a hostile atmosphere, Liverpool should have far too much quality for an Everton side that has been listless for several weeks. Richarlison’s return will add a threat, but Liverpool have all the firepower and should ultimately cruise to victory. Everton 0-3 Liverpool.
