Derbies flying around in the English Premier League and Goodison Park on Sunday will witness one of the biggest around. Everton and Liverpool play the 200th Premier League derby. The result of this match will bear a lasting impact on the season.
Liverpool are just one point ahead of Manchester City in the title race. If they win the derby, the Reds can feel comfortable in the title race. Although Everton have nothing much to play for, derailing their bitter rivals will be satisfying.
The reverse fixture saw Everton lose 1-0, which started the slide for the Toffees. In 14 Premier League matches hence, Everton have won just twice. A 3-0 win over Cardiff in their last match is a morale booster. However, Liverpool will present a tougher test.
Everton have traditionally struggled in this fixture. They are winless in their last 18 encounters against Liverpool in all competitions. This is their longest winless streak in the derby. Another loss on Sunday will be catastrophic for manager Marco Silva’s future at the club.
Liverpool thrashed Watford 5-0 in their last match. This win was an answer to the critics who questioned their credentials after a goalless draw against Manchester United. However, with efficiency at both ends, Liverpool start as heavy favourites on Sunday.
Manchester City did well to close the gap with Liverpool to one point. However, it is the Reds, who have the momentum. Liverpool, though, will be aware that they pulled off a League double over their neighbours only twice in the last seven seasons.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Gylfi Sigurdsson scored two goals against Cardiff City. He now has 11 goals in the Premier League season. This equals his best-ever return for a season and can be a good pick for your fantasy side.
Sadio Mane is enjoying a great season and has 14 goals this season. Seven of those have come in his last nine Premier League matches.
Trent Alexander-Arnold had three assists in the win against Watford. His aggression at right-back can be the difference for Liverpool.
