Everton

Everton go into this match on the back of a 3-2 victory away to West Brom after initially trailing 2-0 at the Hawthorns. It was just the second time in the Premier League era where Everton have won from 2 goals down in a match, the last time during that Wimbledon match in 94 and it's the first time Everton have come from two goals down in an away league match since November 1985. Everton found themselves 2-0 down and 3-1 down away to Ipswich in 1985 but goals from Adrian Heath, Graeme Sharp, Kevin Sheedy and a Trevor Steven penalty secured maximum points that day. Everton have collected twice as many points this season (12) than they had at the same stage of last season (6) and have gained four more points than they did from the corresponding fixtures of last season. Everton have failed to score in three of their last six matches but have scored three goals in each one of the other three fixtures. Everton will have four players in their squad (Osman, Naismith, Lukaku, Jagielka - Mirallas suspended) who have netted in a Merseyside derby whilst Liverpool's squad will have just two players (Coutinho, Sturridge).


Philippe Coutinho was nominated for PFA Player of the Year last season and included in the PFA Team of the Year but the Brazilian has been diminished by Ross Barkley so far this season who posts some very favourable stats by comparison. The Everton midfielder has already surpassed his goals and assists tally (2 goals, 2 assists) from last season and leads Coutinho in both categories. Only Alexis Sanchez (38) has had more shots on goal than Coutinho (35) in the league this season and despite 70% of Barkley's efforts coming from outside the box, he boasts a better shot accuracy than the Liverpool midfielder who has taken 55% of his shots from outside the box. Coutinho created 58 chances last season compared to the 33 chances created by Barkley but it's the Everton man who has made the more impressive start to the season having already created 16 chances whilst Coutinho sits on 6.

Possible Line-Ups



Liverpool

Liverpool picked up their third Premier League victory of the season with a 3-2 win at home to struggling Aston Villa last weekend, putting an end to a six match win drought in all competitions. Despite starting off the season with three successive clean sheets, Liverpool have now failed to keep out the opposition in each of their last four Premier League fixtures and have conceded 9 goals, the second most behind Leicester (10), over that four match period. Only Watford (5) and the two North-East disasters (5 & 6) have scored fewer goals than Liverpool this season (7) and the reds have only scored fewer goals in the opening seven matches in one of their previous Premier League campaigns (05-06, 5 goals). Liverpool have a very good record in this fixture and they're unbeaten in the last ten meetings against Everton in all competitions (W4, D6) and have only lost three of their 16 league matches at Goodison Park since the turn of the century (W9, D4).


Brendan Rodgers has made a struggling start to the season but he certainly can't blame the fixture list for Liverpool's troubles. Based on last season's final Premier League table with the newly promoted sides replacing the recently relegated, the average league position of Liverpool's opposition this season is the fourth lowest of any side, having taken on three of the four lowest positions already. Meanwhile, Everton's start to the season has been among the toughest in the league having already faced five of last season's top 8 and with Liverpool (6th place) and Manchester United (4th place) to come in their next two premier league fixtures yet it's the Toffees who come into this match with more points and higher in the table.

I done some of this before the match tonight. Obviously Deulofeu ahead of Naismith.

Now let's smash these pricks.

Excellent content, strong graphics, nice and early for such a big game allowing us all to talk about it for the week and finally, excellent timing, building on the momentum of tonight. I think I love you, Shogs.

Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I love you too, Shogs.

And you, BD.

And you, Everton.

Once this love buzz vaguely subsides however, I am massively pessimistic about this one.

Gangly robot cunt arms is back, and Ings has an expression that suggests he's perpetually sensing a fart.

Utter cunts, everyone connected with the club ever, and their deal with the devil means it is always a huge uphill climb for us.

Hopefully have Stone and Coleman back. Would drop Naismith for Lennon's energy but then Naise does love a big game. Hope Ross turns up for this one; pulling strings, getting shots away and playing Gerry in early!

I watch these games from behind my sofa - they take fucking years off of me!

Not sure about left side, can Lennon play there? Naismith does like the big games, he will get stuck in, which is what we may need for the first hour. I think we will win this lads, i really do.
I have to return some videotapes.

I make no apologies in saying this but when I look at their team I don't see any players that scare me, they haven't got that fear factor anymore,  for years they had Gerrard winning derbies by himself, he's not there anymore, Coutinho maybe on his day, but nobody else, their midfield looks shocking, and their defence is as weak as I've ever seen it, so its obvious gonna be an away win :(

Alas, we've been saying this for years, yet we still contrive to shit ourselves.  Be nice if Barry or Jags could get Wriggly arms with a nice "reducer" in the 1st few minutes
