Premier League Preview: Everton - Liverpool

Kenny Dalglish has a fine record in this fixture, winning 12 of the 22 games he has overseen, but both sides will be aiming for a win in order to build momentum.

Everton finds itself without lynchpin Tim Cahill after he picked up an injury against Manchester City, but David Moyes is unlikely to defer from his usual method of flooding the midfield, potentially handing attack-minded Royston Drenthe his first start at Goodison Park.

For the visiting side, captain Steven Gerrard is unlikely to start in the derby, but may still make an impact as sub, while young Martin Kelly should again deputize for Glen Johnson, who is out with a rib injury. Andy Carroll started against Wolves last week and could again be in line to partner Luis Suarez, although Dirk Kuyt does have a formidable scoring record in the derby.

  • There have been 10 red cards in the last 13 Premier League Merseyside derbies.
  • Kenny Dalglish has won 54 percent of the Merseyside derbies he as overseen as Liverpool manager, winning 12 of 22 meetings, drawing seven and losing just three times.
  • Tim Cahill, Dirk Kuyt and Dalglish have exactly the same goal tally in games between Liverpool and Everton, with five each.
  • Everton has not won both Merseyside derbies in one season since 1984/85, whereas Liverpool has managed it six times since then, most recently in 2009/10.
  • Liverpool has only managed to keep one clean sheet so far this season, and that was against Arsenal.
  • No Everton player has scored more than one goal this season as of yet, with six players scoring in the Premier League.
  • Everton has only won one home game so far this season and Liverpool has the same amount of away wins to its name.
