Bragging rights will take a back seat for this Merseyside Derby as Liverpool must leave Goodison Park with all three points to keep title hopes alive.
Liverpool are within touching distance of their first league title in 29 years but are being chased relentlessly by Manchester City who have eaten into the seven point gap that separated the two weeks less than a month ago.
So how do Liverpool leave Goodison Park with all three points? By winning two key battles between Richarlison and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Digne and Salah.
Manchester City currently sit two points ahead of Liverpool but with a game in hand. Tottenham have dropped eight points in the last five games and dropped out of the title race leaving a two horse race.
