Liverpool can close the gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City

Liverpool can close the gap to Premier League leaders Manchester City to just two points with victory over Merseyside rivals Everton at Anfield.

The Reds are bidding for their 11th league victory in a so far unbeaten campaign but, by Jurgen Klopp’s admission, face the strongest Toffees side of the German’s tenure.

Everton sit sixth going into the game and there is a genuine sense of optimism among Blues that they can spring a surprise at the home of their nearest and dearest.
