LIVERPOOL 0-0 EVERTON

27: Everton dominating possession over the last few minutes but they’ve not tested Alisson. Could they now with this corner? Nope. Yerry Mina rises highest but the flick-on finds Theo Walcott offside.

Quite interesting tactics from Marco Silva at set-pieces. There’s always an Everton player blocking Van Dijk so the Dutch international can’t get run at the ball. Quite smart.

24: What a save! Alisson didn’t know much about it but the Brazilian has made a stunning reflex save to deny Andre Gomes from point-blank range. Walcott cushions Bernard’s cross over to the Barcelona loanee, who is somehow denied by the palm of Alisson.

22: Sadio Mane gets away with one there. He’s used his arm to bring own a crossfield pass but referee Chris Kavanagh just gives him a warning.

19: Great passing move forward involving Andre Gomes and Richarlison down the left channel. Van Dijk didn’t know whether to stick or twist but he’s fortunate that Richarlison gets in the box and stumbles over.

16: Speaking of composure – Mohamed Salah completely loses his when a looping ball kindly for him on the volley. He sets himself but barely connects and tamely drags it wide.

13: Nervy spell for Everton… that’s an understatement. They are playing into Liverpool’s hands and opening up to allow the break. Salah clips the ball over to Mane, who somehow thrashes over the crossbar from ten yards. A bit of composure and that’s the opener.

10: Both sides giving the ball away sloppily. Bernard, Firmino and Gueye all gift the ball away and It’s Marco Silva’s side that are nearly punished but Digne makes the block to deny Mohamed Salah.

8: Close! Yerry Mina can’t quite make a clearance and Sadio Mane feeds in Alexander-Arnold down the right. His low cross is diverted wide by Digne and the following corner is cleared. Just pure nerves written all over this game.

5: Trent Alexander-Arnold is too physical with Bernard and the visitors have a dangerous free-kick. Sigurdsson steps up…

He’s missed it!! Unbelievable. Everton catch Liverpool cold with Lucas Digne sending an inswinger into the penalty area where the unmarked Yerry Mina inexplicably misses the target. Should be 1-0.

3: Have Everton started like a team who haven’t won at Anfield since 1999? Perhaps not that bad – but nerves are showing as Jordan Pickford concedes a needless corner. It’s cleared easily enough.

Fabinho looks to set Sadio Mane free with a ball over the top but there’s far too much mustard on that.

LIVERPOOL 0-0 EVERTON

1: And we’re away for the final derby of a ridiculous Sunday of Premier League football. Ridiculous I say!

Here they come…

16:14: I suspect we’ll be slightly delayed for KO with the players just walking out of the tunnel to a great cauldron of noise.

You won’t be surprised to hear that Sky Sports commentary team Jamie Redknapp, Graeme Souness and Jamie Carragher have all gone for a Liverpool win…

Team news

16:12: Fabinho was given the job of replacing suspended Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson as manager Jurgen Klopp made three changes for the Merseyside derby at Anfield.

The Brazil international, Xherdan Shaqiri and Trent Alexander-Arnold came in for Henderson, James Milner and Dejan Lovren from the midweek Champions League defeat to Paris St Germain.

Everton, looking for their first league win at Anfield since 1999, named the same side which beat Cardiff last weekend.

The starting XI…

16:10: Hello folks, sorry we’ve got no time for my hilarious pre-match analysis – Arsenal vs Tottenham decided to turn into an absolute stonker! Anyway, I’m here now and we’re nearly ready for the Merseyside derby as Liverpool look to bounce back from their defeat to PSG.
