Liverpool won 4 of their last 7 meetings and the rest of the matches ended in a draw. Their last game against Everton this season took place in December 2019 and ended with a 5-2 victory for Liverpool. It is nearly 3 months since Jurgen Klopp last had a Liverpool team selection to think about. Just days after the Reds’ Champions League exit at home to Atletico Madrid on 13 March, all leagues were suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic which brought the entire world to a standstill.
However, Liverpool returned to training at Melwood earlier this month, initially on individual basis and in small groups and their first game will kick off this Sunday at Goodison Park. The Reds are 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League after a phenomenal campaign which saw them win 27 of the first 29 league games.
While dates and venues for the remaining matches are yet to be finalised, it appears the fixtures will be played in the order they were supposed to be before everything stopped which means the Reds will be going straight back into the thick of it at Goodison.

Everton have won 7 of their last 14 home games and are unbeaten in 6 home games since Carlo Ancelotti was appointed and have only lost 3 of their 16 home games this season. Liverpool have won 12 of their last 14 away games but have only won 2 of their last 6 games in all competitions, including none of their last 3 away games. As a matter of fact, the Reds have only won one of their last 7 trips to Goodison Park, although all of the other 6 have ended as draws.
Klopp’s men have won all but 2 of their league matches away from Anfield, drawing at Manchester United and losing at Watford, and clean sheets on 7 occasions. But a big advantage for Klopp is that he is likely to be able to choose from a fully fit squad for the huge clash across Stanley Park, with Xherdan Shaqiri and Nathaniel Clyne the only two players not currently fit and in training. It will be an enormous boost for the Reds’ lineup to have Alisson Becker back in goal.
Head to Head
Everton may have come unstuck since Ancelotti’s reign, but they could hardly wish for a better time to take on their Merseyside rivals. The Toffees have proven formidable opponents since Carlo Ancelotti’s appointment, and this is especially true at Goodison Park. And the hosts haven’t lost a home game since the Italian took the reins, winning 3 and drawing 3 and taking points off both Arsenal and Manchester United.
Though they still reside in a disappointing 12th position, they’re well clear of the relegation battle and there’s only 6 points separating them from Wolves at 6th position. Defensively, the Toffees have been woeful this term and Carlo Ancelotti will certainly be hoping to find an improvement in that area at least to maintain their reputation for the rest of the season.
The Merseyside Derby
Jurgen Klopp’s men have lost 4 of their last 6 matches in all competitions and are on a 3 match losing streak in away games. The Premier League title is wrapped up and waiting for them, but make no mistake that this Liverpool squad are burned out right now. Not only that, Jurgen Klopp’s men have only won one of their last 7 competitive trips to Goodison Park, and considering Everton have only lost 3 of their 16 competitive home games this season.
Definitely, expecting Liverpool’s losing streak to continue is not a good idea at the moment. While they have found it difficult to win at Goodison Park in recent years, 6 of their last 7 games there have ended as draws. Everton have also played out draws in 3 of their last 6 at home and the Toffees can never be underestimated when it comes to derby games. But old habits die hard and Liverpool are determined now more than ever to fully claim what has been theirs, this whole season.
Here is the lineup prediction for Liverpool’s next game against Everton.
Defenders: Sidibe, Holgate, Keane, Digne
Midfielders: Bernard, Davies, Gomes, Sigurdsson
Attackers: Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
Defenders: Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson
Midfielders: Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain
Attackers: Salah, Firmino, Mane
