The first Merseyside derby of the 2022-23 season will be played at the Goodison park on Saturday. Liverpool will play Everton in the Premier League on the north side of Stanley Park on Saturday lunchtime.
Everton vs Liverpool is always a mouth-watering fixture of football. Liverpool has a great recent record in Merseyside derbies and might inflict further pain on Frank Lampard’s team, which is yet to win a game in the Premier League this season.
However, there is still much room for improvement, and Klopp will continue to struggle with Liverpool’s tendency to concede the opening goal, which has already happened in eight of their previous nine league games.
As for Everton, they need to get back on the winning track in the Premier League and this fixture could prove to be the perfect one for them.
Everton has recently, however, struggled to win games, drawing consecutive 1-1 draws with Nottingham Forest, Brentford, and Leeds United under Frank Lampard.
