Kick-off is rapidly approaching for Sunday’s Merseyside Derby as Liverpool and Everton go head-to-head at Anfield for three English Premier League points and the local bragging rights.
The Reds have every reason to be confident for today’s match. The Toffees haven’t beaten them since way back in 2010, a streak that stretches back 14 matches.
At Anfield, Everton’s record is even more grim. They haven’t won in the Premier League there since 1999, losing nine of the 17 league matches since their last victory at the home of their rivals.
However, that’s all on paper and today’s match is expected to be competitive with Sam Allardyce’s pragmatic set-up more than capable of frustrating Jurgen Klopp’s free-flowing attacking football.
Liverpool supporters are, for that reason, expecting a very tough encounter this afternoon and while confident of a victory, aren’t expecting a repeat of the 3-1 and 4-0 victories of the last two meetings between the sides at Anfield.

Far too many on here casually writing Everton off tomorrow, Fat Sam will have them ready make no doubt, won't be anywhere near as easy as some are making out #LFC

I think we are being far too cocky about tomorrow. It's not going to be as easy as some seem to think. #lfc

Too many of our fans expecting an easy emabarrasing win tomorrow. We may well do but to show this much over confidence and arrogance is borderline dangerous. Sam Allardyce is no mug when it comes to defending so leave the laughing at the blues till after the game guys #LFC #YNWA

However, this one is going to be really tough. Allardyce's teams are always difficult to beat but this Liverpool side has the best attack in Europe. So if we will play our game and stay concentrated during the whole 90 mins, we will win!
Come on, Reds!#LFC

Can you stop with all these big score line wins over Everton tomorrow please. Tomorrow is going to be tough, fat Sam will have them set up tough to breakdown. 3 points is what matters whatever the score line is #LFC

Tomorrow is going to be extremely difficult to break down Everton. I’m not expecting a 4-0 win by any means. #LFC
