Everton v Liverpool: match preview

Everton v Liverpool: probable starters in bold, contenders in light

Ten years. That’s how long the past fortnight must have felt for Jürgen Klopp after the champions’ fine start to the season came to a humiliating halt at Aston Villa. Liverpool, of course, have not lost a derby since 17 October 2010 and have never lost back-to-back league games under Klopp. Sadio Mané’s and Thiago Alcântara’s return after positive Covid-19 tests should aid the reaction required after Villa but Everton, confident as they sit top of the Premier League with a 100% record, pose a greater threat than usual with Dominic Calvert-Lewin already in double figures for the season as a whole after his first for England.
