Liverpool will welcome Everton to Anfield on Sunday.
Everton on the other hand are fighting relegation. The Reds are coming off an emphatic 4-0 victory over Manchester United, which took place at Anfield last Tuesday night.
The Toffees secured a 1-1 draw against Leicester City at Goodison Park last Wednesday night.
Key Battle - Liverpool's front line vs Everton's defence
If Everton want to get anything out of the match, they will have to stop Liverpool's potent forward line.
Everton manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that Donny van de Beek (groin), Andre Gomes (undisclosed injury) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (quadricep) will miss the upcoming fixture against Liverpool.
📊 STAT: Should Roberto Firmino score twice tonight, he will register his 100th goal for the Reds in all competitions. His last league goal at Anfield came in December 2020 against Tottenham Hotspur – a 90th-minute headed winner. #awlive [lfc]pic.twitter.com/nQ9sgCe2V8
Previous Premier League Meeting
Liverpool battered Everton 4-1 at Goodison Park back in December 2021. Goals from Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah gave the Reds a 2-0 lead after 20 minutes of action.
However, Demarai Gray dragged one back for the Toffees just before half-time. But, Everton's joy was short-lived.
Both Salah and Diogo Jota found the back of the net during the second-half, which secured a 4-1 victory for Liverpool.
Klopp was certainly pleased with the result. In fact, the German said he was going to watch the replay when he returned home from the stadium.
He told Match of the Day the following: “Later on I will enjoy watching it (the replay) because I know the result, that helps it. I had moments tonight that I enjoyed a lot.
“I liked what I saw and it was by far the best performance we’ve done at Goodison. We made a big step in our development that we can take these kind of games, even though they are really important for the opponent. We can put emotions to the side.
“After half-time we controlled it again. We showed the boys two or three situations and the way they defended we could have sent Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah away a lot more in one-on-one situations.”
Liverpool really should be defeating Everton on Sunday. The reality is, the Reds are a far better side than the Toffees.
As we have already pointed out, Klopp possesses such a potent forward line. We don't know how Everton's defence will be able to cope with Liverpool's forwards.
But, the Reds should still be wary heading into Sunday's game. There is no such thing as an easy match in the Premier League.
If Liverpool are off the pace, there is no reason why Everton couldn't take advantage of that. But, a lot would have to go wrong for Klopp's side to fall short in this particular fixture.
