Today marks the 235th Merseyside derby but is perhaps one of the most eagerly anticipated match-ups in recent years after the blue half of Liverpool started the new 2020-21 campaign off in fine form.

Ancelotti’s Blues, with the help of new-signing and world-class midfielder James Rodriguez from Real Madrid have started this season in faultless fashion.

Everton currently sit at the top of the Premier League’s table after taking a maximum 12-points from their opening four fixtures, including an opening day win over Spurs.

Elsewhere, current champions and arguably the best team in Europe at the moment, Klopp’s Liverpool have just suffered a shock 7-2 defeat to last season’s relegation fighters Aston Villa.

Today’s derby has added excitement as both sides will be keen to take all three-points away from Goodison Park and perhaps is the first derby in years where the Toffees can truly believe they can claim the bragging rights over the fierce rivals.

Ahead of this afternoon’s crucial clash, selection of both sets of fans have taken to social media to express their thoughts after both team’s line-ups were confirmed:
