The midweek Premier League round brings us the first Merseyside Derby of the 2019-20 campaign.

Liverpool

Premier League leaders Liverpool will welcome their cross-town rivals Everton in the 15th Premier Leauge round of the season.

The Reds are finally on the way to their first English Championship in 30 years as they comfortably sit on the top of the league table with an eight-point advantage above second-placed Leicester City.

They will be without Alisson Becker, who is suspended following his red card in the 2-1 win over Brighton last time out, as well as Joel Matip, Fabinho and Nathaniel Clyne – all of them out through injury problems.

Everton

Everton suffered heartbreak at Leicester City back on Sunday, when Kelechi Iheanacho netted a last-gasp decider to secure the three points for the Foxes.

Marco Silva might have the last chance to save his job tomorrow evening, as the Toffees travel across Stanley Park searching for a first win at Anfield in the 21st century.

They currently sit in 17th, only two points clear from the relegation zone and anything but a victory would be a disappointing result for the Portuguese manager.

Keep your eyes on

All eyes will be on Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk who missed out on the Ballon d’Or to Lionel Messi for only seven points last night.

Van Dijk proved that he could also be dangerous in the opponent’s penalty box, netting both goals for the Reds in the 2-1 win over Brighton over the past weekend.
