That's all for today's live coverage. Thanks for joining!
Liverpool return to Premier League action with a trip to Bournemouth on Saturday, while Everton - now in the relegation zone - host Chelsea at Goodison Park the same day. The question is, will Silva still be in charge of the Toffees three days from now?
Liverpool beat Everton 5-2 to make it 18 Premier League games without defeat in the Merseyside derby and remain eight points clear at the top of the table. Six of the goals were scored in an action-packed first half, with Mane setting up goals for Origi and Shaqiri to put the hosts well on their way to victory. Keane pulled one back, but Origi doubled his personal tally and Mane got in the act, before Richarlison scored just before half-time to make it game on again. Mane missed a couple of good chances in a quieter second half, while substitute Kean also fired wide from a good position, but there was still time for Wijnaldum to add a fifth Liverpool goal in the final minute to round off a memorable victory.
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: LIVERPOOL 5-2 EVERTON
90' + 2' Liverpool are looking for a sixth goal to inflict further misery on their bitter rivals. Everton had one big chance at 4-2 that they failed to take and their supporters are now leaving Anfield en masse, knowing the game is over.
Roberto Firmino
Assist
90' This was a sublime bit of footwork from Firmino to get the better of Holgate. He then looked up and spotted Wijnaldum unmarked to kill off the contest.
G. Wijnaldum
Goal
90' GOOOOOAAAALLL!!!! LIVERPOOL 5-2 EVERTON!! That should do it! If it wasn't game over already, it certainly is now. Firmino shows great trickery to get the better of Holgate down the left and cuts the ball back for Wijnaldum, who pokes it away from Pickford from 12 yards.
88' Quite how this one remains 4-2 is anyone's guess. Mane has missed two glorious chances over the last 10 minutes and Kean also should have scored. As things stand, Liverpool are going to remain eight points clear at the top of the table.
86' CHANCES FOR BOTH SIDES! Liverpool hit Everton on the counter and, a few seconds after defending a corner, Mane is through one-on-one at the other end. He slightly overhits the ball when rounding Pickford and Mina gets back to clear the danger. It is then Everton's turn to counter, but Kean blasts inches wide after getting the better of Van Dijk.
84' Everton are the side on top as we enter the closing stages of the match. Wijnaldum miscues the ball out of play for a corner, which is sent into the middle and cleared by a Liverpool player. 
J. Gomez
T. Alexander-Arnold
83' Klopp makes his third and final change of the match, bringing on Gomez for Alexander-Arnold in a defensive substitution.
82' Digne clips a cross towards the back post but it is out of Kean's reach. Everton are running out of ideas, and indeed time.
81' MANE MISSES! Mane brings down Henderson's long ball over the top and has just Pickford to beat. He takes on the shot a little earlier, from around 12 yards out, and fires wide of the post. Could that miss come back to haunt Liverpool?
80' Victory for Liverpool will see Klopp become the second fastest manager to reach 100 wins in the Premier League, behind Jose Mourinho (142 games), having won 99 of his previous 158 games in charge. He would also be the fastest Liverpool manager to 100 wins in top-flight history.
78' Wijnaldum gets his head to Shaqiri's left-sided delivery but is unable to keep his effort on target, with Pickford watching the ball sail over the crossbar.
77' Neither side are offering a great deal in an attacking sense at the moment. The onus is very much on Everton to find the game's next goal, but the damage appears to have been done in the first half. Could this turn out the be the final match of Silva's tenure?
75' Liverpool are shaping up in their traditional 4-3-3 now, having been set out in a 4-2-3-1 for most of the contest. The tempo has dropped and the hosts are edging ever closer to three more points.
Roberto Firmino
D. Origi
73' Origi, who was far too hot for Everton to handle in the opening 45 minutes, is given a breather. On comes Firmino for the closing 17 minutes or so.
J. Henderson
A. Lallana
72' Henderson takes over from Lallana as Klopp makes his first change of the contest.
M. Schneiderlin
T. Davies
72' Davies is replaced by Schneiderlin as Everton boss Silva rotates in central midfield.
70' Mane is not quite able to bring down a ball over the top and Everton see out the danger. Liverpool have not been at full throttle in the second half, but could that be part of their grand plan? After all, the visitors - needing two goals - are not exactly looking close to scoring a third.
68' Sigurdsson is guilty of giving away another free-kick, this time for a foul on Lallana. Henderson is stripping down and is seemingly ready to join the action.
T. Davies
Yellow Card
67' Alexander-Arnold knocks the ball past Davies and is clearly caught by the Everton midfielder, leading to another booking.
66' That is now 11 shots for Everton today, compared to five for opponents Liverpool. They are starting to test Adrian a little more and the momentum appears to be with them. This game remains delicately poised with around 25 minutes to go.
64' SHOT! A cross is half-cleared and eventually worked to Davies, who gets in a shot from 22 yards. The midfielder hits the ball into the ground and it is a comfortable one for Adrian to deal with.
62' SAVE! Kean, only on the field for a couple of minutes, wins his side a corner which leads to a decent chance for Richarlison. The Brazil international this time makes clean contact with his head, but he sends the ball straight at Adrian.
M. Kean
D. Calvert-Lewin
60' Kean is brought on for Calvert-Lewin up top with exactly an hour played at Anfield. That's Silva's second change of the contest, while Liverpool have all three still to use should they wish.
59' Alexander-Arnold's deep delivery sails straight out of play. Liverpool have dominated possession in the second half but have done very little with it. Everton are preparing another substitute or two.
57' Origi is going nowhere but Mina clumsily sends his opponent crashing to the ground. Shaqiri and Alexander-Arnold make a real mess of the short free-kick, though, with the former flagged for offside after playing a one-two with his team-mate.
55' Origi and Milner have shots blocked in quick succession. Liverpool have a corner to show for their latest attacking move. Shaqiri sends the ball towards the near post, where Richarlison is waiting to head clear.
53' Calvert-Lewin is fouled by Lallana 25 yards out. Sigurdsson and Digne stand over the ball, with the latter sending a dipping effort over the crossbar. Not the worst attempt you'll ever see, but not enough to trouble Adrian.
52' Everton are far more alert to the long balls over the top in the second half. If they can get the next goal then it really will set up a tense finale to the contest. Not a great deal has happened since play restarted.
50' This is the first time Liverpool have conceded two first-half goals at Anfield in the Premier League since Dec 2016 (v West Ham). Six goals also sets a record for the most scored in the first half of a Merseyside derby in the Premier League era.
48' Richarlison and Lovren tangle on the edge of the Liverpool box but Mike Dean does not award a free-kick either way. It has been a tentative start to the second half.
46' RESTART! Everton, who are not out of this contest just yet, get us back under way at Anfield! Neither manager made a change at half-time.
Silva brought on Bernard for Sidibe in the first half and reverted to a back four. The Portuguese really is fighting for his job and could well make a second change at the interval, with his side needing two goals to rescue a point. As for Klopp, he has a number of big hitters to call upon from the bench, namely Salah and Firmino.
Liverpool may have a 4-2 lead at half-time, but this one is far from over on the basis of the opening 45 minutes. Mane set up Origi for the hosts' sixth-minute opener and then teed up Shaqiri for the second 11 minutes later. Everton pulled one back through centre-back Keane, only for Origi to score his second of the contest with a sublime finish and Mane to get in on the act to put Liverpool 4-1 ahead. But credit to Silva's men as they hit back just before the half-time whistle, with Richarlison sending the ball past Adrian to keep alive hope of a comeback.
45' + 5' HALF-TIME: LIVERPOOL 4-2 EVERTON
Bernard
Assist
45' + 3' This was an impressive goal from Everton, who have been largely outplayed in the first half. Bernard swung in the ball and Richarlison did the rest with his diving header of sorts.
Richarlison
Goal
45' + 3' GOOOOAAAALLL!!! LIVERPOOL 4-2 EVERTON! What a game this is turning out to be! Sigurdsson plays in Bernard down the left and the substitute picks out the run of Richarlison. The Brazil international does not make clean contact, the ball coming off his shoulder and flying past Adrian. Game on?
45' + 1' Three minutes have been added on at the end of the first half at Anfield.
T. Alexander-Arnold
Assist
45' Alexander-Arnold perhaps could have gone it alone, but he had the presence of mind to return the ball to Mane. This is scary stuff from Liverpool.
S. Mané
Goal
45' GOOOOAAAALLL!!! LIVERPOOL 4-1 EVERTON!! Yet another Liverpool goal on the counter to surely seal the victory before half-time! After defending an Everton corner, Mane carries the ball forward and feeds Alexander-Arnold, who plays the return pass for Mane to guide a first-time shot away from Pickford. Clinical!
44' Everton are seeing plenty of the ball in the closing stages of the first half. Liverpool seem to score every time they launch the ball forward, though, so Klopp will not be too concerned. Richarlison's cross is turned wide by Lovren - great defending.
43' Robertson barges Calvert-Lewin off the ball and Everton have a free-kick three yards outside the box. The angle is against Sigurdsson so he elects to cross it but Liverpool stand firm, also dealing with the second cross, as we approach half-time.
41' WIDE! Richarlison turns on the edge of the box and tees up Iwobi. The winger has time to pick his spot but can only find the stands with what is a pretty terrible effort.
39' Wijnaldum's low cross is pushed to safety by Pickford before Mane can convert. The loose ball could have gone anywhere, but thankfully for Everton there was not a red shirt waiting to pounce. Silva could do with the half-time whistle.
37' Digne gets to the ball ahead of Shaqiri, who would have had a free header six yards out if not for the full-back's intervention. Alexander-Arnold's corner is a good one, but Everton manage to clear the danger.
Bernard
D. Sidibé
35' Bernard replaces Sidibe, which should mean a switch to a back four for Everton. Decisive action from Silva, but is it too late?
33' Everton enjoyed a spell on top with the scoreline at 2-1, but Liverpool are now back in control of this Merseyside derby. Silva looks as though he may be about to make an early substitution.
D. Lovren
Assist
31' Lovren was perhaps looking for the run of Mane, but it was Origi who got in behind to bring the ball under control and score his second of the match.
D. Origi
Goal
31' GOOOOOAAAALLL!!! LIVERPOOL 3-1 EVERTON!! What a brilliant goal from Origi, who quite simply loves this fixture. Lovren plays a straight ball over the top, Origi brings it under control and lifts it over Pickford. Everton cannot deal with him!
Richarlison
Yellow Card
31' Richarlison, perhaps riled up by Alexander-Arnold's challenge on him a little earlier, is booked for a late challenge on Shaqiri.
29' The match has been a lot more balanced since Keane pulled one back for Everton. In fact, Silva's men have arguable edged things over the last eight minutes. Mane trips over a leg in the box but is clearly looking for the penalty and Mike Dean waves away his appeals.
T. Alexander-Arnold
Yellow Card
27' Alexander-Arnold is late on Digne and rightly shown a yellow card by referee Mike Dean. The Liverpool full-back needs to calm himself down or risk being dismissed.
26' PENALTY APPEAL! Calvert-Lewin chases down a ball in behind and initially gets beyond Van Dijk. The Liverpool defender gets back and barges into Calvert-Lewin, who is off-balance when firing wide. Everton want a penalty but, with the aid of VAR, it is decided there was not enough it in.
25' Alexander-Arnold leaves a foot in on Richarlison and the Everton forward is not a happy man. As expected, this Merseyside derby is threatening to boil over. It has lived up to the billing so far - fingers crossed for more of the same!
23' That was pretty poor defending from Liverpool in the build-up to Everton's goal. Robertson initially failed to clear the danger and Lovren could have done better to cut out Iwobi's cross. The mood has become a lot more nervy at Anfield.
M. Keane
Goal
21' GOOOOOAAAALLLL!!! LIVERPOOL 2-1 EVERTON!! Maybe it isn't quite game over just yet! Iwobi's cross falls kindly for Keane, who keeps his composure to flick the ball over stand-in Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian from close range.
19' It is the first time Liverpool forward Mane has assisted twice in a Premier League game since March 2018 (v Watford).
S. Mané
Assist
17' Mane has been exceptional in the opening quarter of this one-sided Merseyside derby. He waited for a team-mate to make a run in behind and spotted Shaqiri when he did so with a perfectly-weighted pass.
X. Shaqiri
Goal
17' GOOOOOAAAALLLL!!! LIVERPOOL 2-0 EVERTON!! Shaqiri doubles Liverpool's lead following another fine team move! Mane controls Alexander-Arnold's diagonal pass, cuts inside from the left and slots the ball in behind for Shaqiri, who tucks it past Pickford with a first-time finish.
15' Liverpool have had 70 per cent of the ball so far, with Everton not really asking any questions of their opponents. Robertson lands heavily on Davies, who reacts angrily. The referee does well to break things up.
13' Digne's cross into the box from the left is cleared into the stands by Van Dijk. The throw-in is launched into the box, flicked on a couple of times and Calvert-Lewin is about to strike goalwards, only for Milner to get to it first.
11' Holgate makes a good challenge to thwart Mane, who was trying to get on the end of Van Dijk's pass. Liverpool look as though they could help themselves to a few goals today.
9' It would be harsh on Everton to say Liverpool deserved that early breakthrough, but the hosts have undoubtedly been the team on top since kick-off. This one looks as though it will go the way of the form book, unless the visitors can muster some magic from somewhere.
7' Origi has now scored in all four matches against Everton for Liverpool at Anfield (four goals). Only Dirk Kuyt (5), Robbie Fowler (6) and Steven Gerrard (9) have scored more goals for Liverpool in the Merseyside derby in Premier League history.
S. Mané
Assist
6' Mane played an inch-perfect pass in behind Mina and Keane for Origi, who timed his run perfectly, to collect and take past Pickford. It looked simple, but that was a quality goal.
D. Origi
Goal
6' GOOOOOAAAALLL!!!! LIVERPOOL 1-0 EVERTON!! Well that didn't take long! Liverpool hit Everton on the counter, Mane slots the ball in behind and Origi gets to it ahead of Pickford, who is left stranded. It is a simple finish for Origi, the match-winner in this fixture last season, into an empty net.
5' The tempo of the match has dropped over the past couple of minutes, which will suit Everton just fine. Liverpool are patiently passing the ball around in search of an early breakthrough.
4' That was a half-decent opportunity for Mane, who is supported in attack today by Origi and Shaqiri - it is far from a full-strength Liverpool. Everton have not really settled just yet.
3' Origi gets in behind early on but his cutback is dealt with by Holgate. Thirty seconds later, Robertson's cross is headed over by Mane from 12 yards. It has been a pretty frenetic start to the contest, as expected. 
1' KICK-OFF! Liverpool, aiming to stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League, get us up and running in this Merseyside derby!
The teams are coming out onto the pitch at Anfield, with kick-off just moments away.
As for Everton, they are unchanged for this derby clash. The visitors were somewhat unfortunate to lose 2-1 at Leicester City three days ago and Silva has opted to stick with the same XI, meaning what is effectively a back five for this short trip to Anfield. Calvert-Lewin will continue to operate up top, with support offered from wide by Iwobi and Richarlison, who signed a new five-year deal on Tuesday. Walcott has recovered from illness to take a spot on the bench.
Klopp has, somewhat surprisingly, made five changes from Liverpool's 2-1 win over Brighton and Hove Albion at the weekend. Shaqiri comes in for his first start of the season and Origi, the match-winner in this corresponding fixture last season, is also given the nod in place of benched duo Salah and Firmino in attack. Milner and Lallana are selected in midfield, with Henderson and Oxlade-Chamberlain dropping out, while Adrian is in for suspended goalkeeper Alisson.
Everton subs: Morgan Schneiderlin, Leighton Baines, Cenk Tosun, Bernard, Moise Kean, Theo Walcott, Jonas Lossl.
EVERTON STARTING XI (5-4-1): Jordan Pickford; Djibril Sidibe, Mason Holgate, Yerry Mina, Michael Keane, Lucas Digne; Alex Iwobi, Tom Davies, Gylfi Sigurdsson (c), Richarlison; Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Liverpool subs: Caoimhin Kelleher, Mohamed Salah, Joe Gomez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino.
LIVERPOOL STARTING XI (4-3-3): Adrian; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Georginio Wijnaldum, Adam Lallana, James Milner (c); Xherdan Shaqiri, Sadio Mane, Divock Origi.
The visitors are not exactly in great form, either, entering this match 17th and just two points above the relegation zone. In fact, should results go against them, they could well end the day occupying a place in the bottom three. With just two wins from their last 10 league outings, defeat against their bitter rivals may just spell the end for under-fire boss Marco Silva.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 31 top-flight games and will set a new club record for their longest-ever such run should they avoid defeat today. History is not exactly on Everton's side, as they are winless in their last 17 league matches against their neighbours and have not picked up three points at this ground since 1999.
Premier League leaders Liverpool enter this first Merseyside derby of the season sitting a healthy eight points clear of Leicester City and Manchester City, with the latter having played a game more. It has been an incredible campaign so far for Jurgen Klopp's side, who have dropped just two points from the first 42 on offer.
