Two local rivals in crisis meet in a match that neither side can afford to lose. Liverpool are at their lowest point in recent memory while Everton are treading water in the relegation zone. Always a heated encounter, the Merseyside derby has had more red cards than any other Premier League match-up.
Stuck in mid-table on 29 points, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have lost three of their last four league games and look a shadow of their former title-challenging selves. Everton will be riding high on the back of a win over leaders Arsenal in Sean Dyche’s first game as manager, but that was their first victory since October and they remain in a dire situation on just 18 points. Will Liverpool stop the rot or will Everton continue their great escape? Find out by watching the Liverpool vs Everton live stream.

Liverpool vs Everton preview
Liverpool find themselves at their lowest ebb since Jurgen Klopp arrived as manager. Even with uncertainty around the ownership of the club, however, there is still an almost universal belief he is the right man to take them forward on the pitch. A 3-0 defeat to a struggling Wolves team last time out, which saw them concede two goals in the first 12 minutes, is a result that cannot be repeated against rivals Everton. With the two stadiums less than a mile apart and Everton having won just one league derby since 2010, a defeat to the blue side of the city would be disastrous. Liverpool have struggled with injuries this season but leading defender Virgil Van Dijk could return.
Sean Dyche has inherited an Everton team in trouble. Having sold young talent Anthony Gordon for a significant amount of money on transfer deadline day, Everton were the only side not to bring in any new players in the January transfer window. One of the most goal-shy teams in the Premier League, Dyche will need to use all of his experience to keep Everton in the division. His first game in charge bodes well, as his new charges beat league leaders Arsenal 1-0, but he will need to keep that momentum going. Luckily, Dyche knows several members of the squad well already, having managed James Tarkowski, Dwight McNeil, and Michael Keane at Burnley. Keane and star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin have been injured but could make their comebacks at Anfield.
With both teams enduring tough seasons, a victory over local rivals could be the catalyst for a change in fortunes — you won’t want to miss the Liverpool vs Everton live stream.
