Two famous old Merseyside clubs are once again experiencing contrasting fortunes in the Premier League. Liverpool are in a strong three-horse title race with Arsenal and Man City and are 2nd on goal difference behind the Arsenal with 10 games remaining after a thrilling 1-1 draw with City at Anfield.

Everton, on the other hand, are battling relegation amid turmoil off the pitch and a failure to win a Premier League game since mid-December. With just one win over their fierce local rivals in nearly 14 years, it’s not a game most fans will be looking forward to, but a surprise result could help boost their survival bid.

The derby at Goodison Park was due to take place on 17 March, but the match was postponed due to the FA Cup quarter-finals taking place on the same weekend.
