- What a time for Everton to beat Liverpool at Anfield for the first time this millennium.
- Since their last win at Anfield, the likes of Grimsby and Barnsley beat the Reds on their turf. Even Havant and Waterlooville came close!
- The players desperately need to make amends following a poor festive period which saw them score just 1 goal and have just 4 shots on target.
- Since the sides last met nearly four weeks ago, Liverpool won 4 of their 6 games, drawing the other 2.
- One of those games included a 3-3 draw against Arsenal, where Liverpool went from 2-0 up to 3-2 down in just 5 minutes.
- The Reds are likely to be without Mo Salah and Sadio Mane as they are attending an awards ceremony 24 hours before the Derby.
- They will also be without the injured Philippe Coutinho, who is currently struggling with transferitis.
