Five key battles that will decide the Merseyside Derby

In what is the last Premier League fixture before Christmas, Liverpool make the short trip across the city to face Everton at Goodison Park on Monday night.

Neither side is in fantastic form at the moment but both won their midweek fixtures to set up an tantalising derby.

Klopp’s side are 11 points ahead of Koeman’s and in the mix to challenge for the title heading into the New Year – but that could well depend on a win over the Toffees.

Everton, meanwhile, are pushing for Europe and will be hoping a massive victory over Arsenal is enough to kickstart what has been a faltering campaign so far. A win over their city rivals would be a massive step forward – and boost morale amongst Koeman’s squad.

It’s all set to be a very tasty night under the Goodison lights. Here are the FIVE battles that we think will decide the scoreline.
