By: Mandy Price  |   | 

Premier League action will resume after the International break with a mouth-watering clash as Liverpool host Everton in a Merseyside Derby in an early kick-off this Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp side currently sits fourth in the league table, and a quest for standing firm in the top four is underway as Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United are also pushing behind their back. 

Meanwhile the Toffees are languishing seventh in the league table having an eye for Europe as well and sitting six points behind their local rivals.

Liverpool will come into this match after their recent 1-1 draw against Manchester City while Everton is in good form recently having hammered 4-0 to Hull City with Romelu Lukaku scoring double goal in that match.

A win for this match will make Jurgen Klopp the first manager to win first three matches against Everton.

Everton has lost only once in their last 12 league matches winning 8 of them and keeping 5 clean sheets in the process.

Their key man Romelu Lukaku has been in inspiring form this season scoring 21 goals so far this season listing him at the top of the pile for a hunt to golden boot this season.

67- That's the number of goal-scoring chances Ross Barkley has created this season, more than any other player to do so.

Liverpool Vs Everton Prediction

The Reds are very hard to beat on their homeland while Everton has also never won in their territory since 2010. Klopp's sides are in magnificent form recently and so do their rivals. The match will be intense, and we predict the match to end in a draw sharing 1 point each.
