A controversial VAR decision led to Liverpool’s heart-wrenching defeat at Tottenham, closely followed by a 2-2 draw against Brighton. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been prolific in front of the goal, boasting 18 goals this season. However, concerns lie in the middle and defence, having let in nine goals in just eight fixtures.
Everton’s journey has been rocky. Narrowly escaping relegation last season, they’ve managed only two victories this campaign.
Team News: Who’s In, Who’s Out
Liverpool’s squad may witness the return of Cody Gakpo, who’s been on the mend from a knee injury. Diogo Jota is also back in contention. Despite international duties, Alexis Mac Allister, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz, and Alisson Becker are likely to join the ranks. However, they’ll miss the services of Andy Robertson due to a shoulder injury, paving the way for Kostas Tsimikas.
For the Toffees, Idrissa Gueye is potentially making a comeback, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin is all set to spearhead their attack.
