Both Liverpool and Everton head into the Merseyside derby in buoyant form, with the Reds fresh from a 7-0 Champions League win and the Toffees on a roll after three wins from three.
Liverpool are in a great run of form, after scoring 15 goals in their last three games in all competitions, but are still some way of the pace in the Premier League.
They trail league leaders Man City by 14 points and need three points to keep the pace with their top four rivals.
Everton have been reinvigorated following the appointment of Sam Allardyce and have won their last two league games without conceding to jump to tenth in the standings.

Alberto Moreno is unlikely to play any part in the derby after sustaining an injury in Wednesday's 7-0 Champions League win over Spartak Moscow.
James Milner will likely step-in once again at left-back. Simon Mignolet will likely return in goal for Loris Karius.
Jordan Henderson could well sit out the game if manager Jurgen Klopp decides to stick with a similar outfield line-up to the one that was so successful in mid-week.
Liverpool's potent attacking trident of Roberto Firmino, Phillipe Coutinho and Premier League top scorer Mohammed Salah are again expected to start.
