Anfield plays host to the first Merseyside derby of the season in what promises to be a fascinating encounter.
Liverpool currently sit 4th in the Premier League with five wins, two draws and one loss from their first eight games of the season.
It's been an impressive start to the campaign on the whole from Jürgen Klopp's men who will feel fairly aggrieved not to be two points better off following the clown show in North London a couple of weeks back, but even with the now famous 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham they're still coming into this game in good form having won eight of their last ten games.
Their most recent outing saw them held to a 2-2 draw away at Brighton in what was ultimately a frustrating afternoon for the Reds.
Having fallen 1-0 down owing to a rare error from goalkeeper Alisson, Liverpool fought back to head into the break 2-1 up thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah but in the second half Klopp's side failed to give themselves a thicker cushion with Ryan Gravenberch in particular spurning a gilt-edged chance.
Ultimately, Liverpool were made to pay for their passive second half showing as Lewis Dunk popped up with a late equaliser for a Seagulls side that had acquitted themselves well in the second half and could have walked away with the lion's share of the spoils had João Pedro not skied a golden opportunity inside the Liverpool box late on.
The Reds are now four games without a win against Brighton and while the Amex is one of the league's tougher grounds to visit they'll see this as two points dropped considering Brighton were coming into the game having won just one of their last five matches.
The result was by no means a disaster, though, and Klopp will be perfectly pleased with his side's standing and will no doubt believe they're well placed to mount another title challenge whether he chooses to express that or not.
The Reds are the kings of the Merseyside derby and have lost just one of the last twenty editions of this historic fixture so they'll come into this one confident of picking up a welcome three points.
Everton currently sit 16th in the Premier League with two wins, one draw and five losses from their first eight games of the season.
A club seemingly in a state of perpetual crisis, Everton are coming into this game having finally started to display signs of real promise.
The Toffees starting the season in concerning fashion results-wise as they failed to win any of their first five games, losing four of them. However, things have started to slowly turn in their favour and they come into this one having won three of their last four games in all competitions.
People who watched Everton closely in the opening weeks of the season could say that much of the pessimism that was mounting amongst the fanbase was slightly misplaced as Sean Dyche's side were still exhibiting one or two encouraging signs with the results not necessarily aligning with performances.
As such, that belief is starting to come to pass as they enter this game fresh off the back of a 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park. In what was deemed an early season crunch fixture between two sides desperately in need of a win, the Toffees cruised to victory in a dominant performance with goals from James Garner, Jack Harrison and Abdoulaye Doucouré enough to seal all three points.
The win comes after what we can likely now call an anomalous 1-2 loss at home to Luton Town and this recent run of good form very much vindicates what Sean Dyche has been building these past few months as, in what will be of huge surprise to many, his side have currently created the most expected goals in the entire league with the Toffees boasting a rate of 16.43xG.
This past week or so could turn to be a turning point for Everton under Dyche but fans won't be counting their chickens just yet as disappointment is still deeply wired into their psyche following a rough few years.
This fixture has not been kind to the blue half of Liverpool but a win here would do wonders for the mood around the club and while it's not likely they also feel better placed to get result in this fixture than they have done in some time.
For our Liverpool vs. Everton prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
