Everton host Liverpool in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on Sunday evening.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were denied the chance to clinch the Premier League title on rival territory after Manchester City’s victory against Arsenal. However, the champions-elect still require just two wins to lift the trophy for the first time in 30 years.

After a turbulent season, Everton had been resurgent under Carlo Ancelotti prior to the enforced break, but any hopes of securing a Europa League place for next season remain slender.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

The Toffees have not won a Merseyside derby in almost 10 years and Ancelotti himself admitted that his side will need to play at their very best to stand in Liverpool’s way.
