Evertonand Liverpool meet at Goodison Park on Sunday, 3rd March for a Merseyside Derbywhich the visitors cannot afford to lose.
Everton are coming to this Merseyside Derby after a string of bad results and they know that they need to put in a good performance. Liverpool will be coming to the game aware that they have just a 1 point lead at the top of the table.
Everton have been suffering in recent weeks, losing a string of matches both home and away, and need to find a way to turn their season around. Liverpool are not playing at their best, they have been struggling to win matches and if they continue to draw then they will lose their place at the top of the league.
However, Liverpool have not lost a game to Everton in a very long time and they have won five of the last seven Merseyside derbies. This will give the team confidence and they are likely to rise to the occasion. Either way, the Merseyside derbies are always exciting and this match promises to be no different.
