Bragging rights have belonged to Liverpool over the years in this fixture, with the Reds unbeaten in 23 out of their last 24 meetings with their city rivals in all competitions.

Indeed, Everton's 2-0 win at Anfield last season ended an 11-year wait for a victory over Liverpool. Richarlison struck the opener inside three minutes before Gylfi Sigurdsson dispatched from the penalty spot late on to secure a famous win.

The fortunes of these two sides could not be more different heading into Wednesday's instalment of the Merseyside derby, with Liverpool scoring for fun while Everton enter December having not tasted victory in over a month.

The goalscoring form of Diogo Jota will be cause for concern for Rafa Benitez, whose Liverpool connections have made him the subject of supporter frustration from the Everton faithful amid their dismal run of form.

This could be the game in which the Spaniard reaches the point of no return at Goodison Park, with a hungry Liverpool side poised and waiting.

Prediction: Everton 0-2 Liverpool
