Liverpool pulled back two points from Premier League leaders Chelsea at the weekend with a 4-0 win over Southampton. It was the Reds’ second straight 4-0 league victory, having beaten Arsenal by the same score the previous matchday.
On Wednesday night, Liverpool will make the trip across Stanely Park to play Everton at Goodison Park with three massive points up for grabs. Chelsea have a tricky fixture away to Watford before playing West Ham at the weekend.
Meanwhile, second-place Manchester City play Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa at Villa Park before a match with Watford. This season’s Premier League has shown any team can be beaten on any given day.
The Reds could go top of the table with a win and Chelsea and Manchester City dropping points. However, Jurgen Klopp’s team must end a winless streak at Goodison Park to do so.
Liverpool have not won at Goodison Park in their last four trips to the stadium in the Premier League. The Reds drew all four of those games at Goodison Park.
Liverpool have not won at Goodison Park since 2016-17. Meanwhile, the Reds are winless in three straight games against the Toffees. Last season saw Everton, under Carlo Ancelotti, take four points from Liverpool. Everton even won at Anfield during Liverpool’s awful winter.
The good news for Liverpool supporters is Everton’s awful current run of league form. Former manager Rafael Benitez has watched the team go from flirting with the top four in the early stages of the season to 14th.
Everton are winless in seven straight Premier League matches. Five of those seven games ended in losses, including their last two league fixtures. The Toffees have failed to score in three straight games and will be missing striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin once more.
