This confrontation does not require any special presentation. The Liverpool Derby is one of the most exciting events in English football. “Butterscotch” will take on their sworn rivals in their arena.
Blue started well this season, but the fuse was enough for only 4 rounds. In the last 8 matches, the toffee managed to win only 1 victory. In this case, 5 defeats and 2 draws. Rafa Benitez’s team suffers from numerous injuries. At the moment, there are 5 main players in the infirmary. The participation of three more players in the next match is in question. The most important losses were by far Andre Gomes and Calvert-Lewin.
In the last round, the Blues were defeated by Brentford. Despite the advantage in all statistical indicators, the guys of Rafa Benitez were minimally inferior to the “bees” on the road. After this defeat, “butterscotch” dropped to 14th place in the table, extending their streak without victories to 7 matches in a row.
At the post-match conference, the head coach was asked about his work at the club and about Everton’s prospects. There were also questions about the reinforcements in the winter MOT.
“Our owner is very smart and we cannot complain – he spends a lot of money on the team. Moshiri is trying to improve Everton in all its areas. I understand that we will not be able to spend a lot of money in the winter – no one lets the players go into this transfer window for a real price, and we will not overpay.
We are strengthening our roster and improving our club without spending any money. This requires certain skills. I like Everton – I want to train him not for three years, but as long as possible. I want to see our new stadium and be successful there, ”said Benitez.

Liverpool is definitely doing well. After a disappointing 3-2 away defeat to West Ham, Klopp’s team have won three wins in three games. Arsenal and Southampton were defeated within the Premier League. Both matches were at the home arena and both ended 4-0 in favor of the Merseysides. The victory was also achieved in the Champions League group stage match against Porto. Victoria over the Portuguese allowed Leaver to leave the group ahead of schedule in first place.
Klopp’s charges had certain problems with the line-up. There were too many important players in the infirmary. But the situation is getting better. Jordan Henderson and Sadio Mane are back. At the moment, Keita, Firmino and Gomez are recovering from injuries.
As for the Liverpool game itself, everything is familiar here. High pressure and an incredibly frantic pace of the game. The Reds are aiming for the championship and the gap from the leading Chelsea is only 2 points at the end of the last round.
Special attention should be paid to the main striker of Liverpool. Mohamed Salah at the moment can undoubtedly be called the best striker in the world. The Egyptian has 11 goals and 8 assists after 13 rounds of the Premier League.
