Liverpool set to host Everton as sides prepare for first derby in eight years

The Premier League football season goes on at the highest level once again, this time with Everton versus Liverpool taking center stage on Wednesday night.

The on-field drama is already on thin ice, with the Reds left searching for Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge’s presence, while the Toffees need to re-unite the combustible group that could have fashioned one of the best teams this season. That will be put to the test on Wednesday when Ronald Koeman’s side travels to Anfield for a local derby derby that is seldom short of tension.

Although they face a tough game against the reigning champions, Everton are riding high in the Premier League table at the very start of their first season in the Europa League. But they face a Liverpool side who will bring renewed confidence that their dream of Champions League football is now within reach.

The goal-fest that was October’s derby aside, this one is likely to be equally entertaining, with both Koeman and Jurgen Klopp refusing to settle for anything but a “winning” outcome.

Despite finishing four points behind their Merseyside rivals last season, Everton have been good so far, with early victories over Newcastle and Watford leading many to claim they could already be playing for a top six finish.
