Everton host Liverpool in the first Premier League Merseyside derby of the season on Saturday lunchtime.
The Toffees are still waiting for their maiden league victory of the new campaign but come into the fixture on the back of three straight top-flight draws. Fabio Carvalho's 98th-minute winner fired Liverpool to consecutive victories but Jurgen Klopp's side have been far from their imperious best this term.
Here's everything you need to know about the 241st edition of the so-called Friendly Derby.

Everton team news
Frank Lampard was forced into a back-four against Leeds United in midweek after Mason Holgate joined fellow centre-backs Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey in Everton's treatment room. None of the trio is expected to return in the near future, residing with Andros Townsend on the list of long-term absentees.
Abdoulaye Doucoure is still a doubt with a thigh injury while Lampard admitted it will be "tough" for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to make his return this weekend.
Against Liverpool's feared frontline, Lampard may revert to a back-five, perhaps calling upon Vitaliy Mykolenko's ability to play as a centre-back given his clear distrust in Michael Keane.
Everton predicted lineup vs Liverpool
Everton Starting 11: Pickford; Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko; Patterson, Onana, Iwobi, Vinagre; McNeil, Gray, Gordon.
Bench: Begovic, Keane, Allan, Gomes, Coleman, Davies, Rondon, Mills, Maupay.
Liverpool team news
"That obviously is not helpful," was Klopp's understated reaction to the hamstring injury Jordan Henderson suffered during Liverpool's late victory against Newcastle on Wednesday night. The skipper joins fellow midfielders Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita in the treatment room.
Thiago Alcantara has also been absent since limping off on the opening weekend against Fulham. However, the Spanish string-puller is expected to return to training in the coming days - though is unlikely to feature on Saturday.
Klopp revealed that Diogo Jota will return to training on Thursday. While that may not be enough time to earn the Portuguese forward a start, he could feature in the squad which travels to Merseyside. Darwin Nunez is also available again after completing his three-match suspension in midweek.
Ibrahima Konate is still a doubt with a knee problem but Joel Matip did return to the bench against Newcastle.
Liverpool predicted lineup vs Everton
Liverpool Starting 11: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Elliott, Fabinho, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Diaz.
Bench: Adrian, Jones, Tsimikas, Carvalho, Gomez, Bajcetic, Philips, Jota, Nunez.
Everton vs Liverpool score prediction
Everton have failed to win any of their first five league games for the first time since 2010. Liverpool may have two victories under their belt but Klopp's side has conceded first in eight of their last nine league matches.
With both teams spluttering through the opening month of the campaign, the abundantly superior talent Liverpool can offer - even taking into consideration their injuries - may prove enough to nudge them over the line against their city rivals.
Prediction: Everton 1-2 Liverpool
