TOFFEES LOOKING TO HALT REDS TITLE CHARGE THIS WEEKEND
Liverpool will look to continue their push towards a first Premier League title in 29 years with a win in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park this weekend.
With 10 games to go and top of the league by just a single point, there is no room for error for Jurgen Klopp’s side when they make the short trip across Stanley Park to play Everton on Sunday afternoon.
Both sides enjoyed victory in the mid-week round of fixtures, with Everton winning 3-0 away at struggling Cardiff City, and Liverpool cruising to a 5-0 home win against Watford.
A win for the visitors would put them in a fantastic position to lift the trophy that has eluded them for so many years, but Everton are desperate to have a hand in making sure that that doesn’t happen.
I spoke to fans of both sides to get their thoughts ahead of a huge clash at Goodison Park.
The players are also clearly looking forward to the game, with some of them posting about it on their social media accounts.
Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum posted a short video on his Instagram page,
Meanwhile, Everton forward Richarlison posted a picture with Liverpool goalkeeper and fellow Brazilian countryman, Alisson Becker, prior to the game,
The Merseyside derby never needs more hype adding to it than the rivalry itself, but the extra incentive for Everton to deal a blow to Liverpool’s title hopes on Sunday will make this a game no one will want to miss.
The game kicks off on Sunday afternoon at 16:15. It will be broadcast live in the UK on the Sky Sports Premier League channel.
