Recent respective form guides

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six home games, but have drawn three of them. The Reds have scored 9 and conceded 2 during this period.

Everton's away form is equally impressive, with a marvellous return of five wins and one defeat from the last six. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 2 have been let in at the wrong end.

Liverpool sit in a healthy 2nd in the league, and have picked up 46 points from their 21 games. Everton find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 35 points they have accumulated from 21 games.
