Liverpool make the short trip to Goodison Park to take on high-flying Everton in the first Merseyside derby of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti‘s Toffees have enjoyed a magnificent start to the season and sit top of the Premier League table after winning each of their first four games.

Summer signings Abdoulaye Doucoure, Allan and James Rodriguez have hit the ground running, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin is among the form strikers in Europe.

Liverpool, meanwhile, were hammered 7-2 by Aston Villa in a bizarre result before the international break, and Jurgen Klopp will be looking to bounce straight back.

The match will be behind closed doors at Goodison Park with no fans due to be present due to government guidelines regarding coronavirus.

Team news

Liverpool could welcome back the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Sadio Mane after the pair tested positive for coronavirus while Jordan Henderson returned to action for England during the international break but goalkeeper Alisson Becker is still out injured.

Everton are sweating on the fitness of Lucas Digne after the full-back was forced of during France’s meeting with Croatia in midweek.

It must be some time since Everton have gone into a Merseyside derby with as much confidence and momentum, but the international break may just have given Liverpool chance to reset and get key players back to fitness.
