Sky Sports presenter made an embarrassing blunder about Richarlison before Merseyside derby

Everton go into the Merseyside Derby on Sunday knowing it will take a miracle to cause an upset.

The Toffees last won at Anfield in September 1999, which certainly doesn't bode well given Liverpool's current form.

The Reds are still unbeaten in the Premier League, scoring five in their last two outings.

While it hasn't exactly been plain sailing in the Champions League, Jurgen Klopp's men remain well and truly in the title race.

That's why many segments of the media have been focusing on Liverpool, rather than their neighbours, ahead of the late kick-off.

Sky Sports took that to new levels, however, and a rather embarrassing clip has started doing the rounds on social media.

Looking ahead to the three derbies of Chelsea vs Fulham, Arsenal vs Tottenham, and Liverpool vs Everton, the presenter can be heard saying in front of a graphic of Virgil van Dijk and Richarlison:

"These two players, Van Dijk and this Everton star there."

Awkward. The Brazilian isn't particularly obscure, but there you go.

Klopp will know exactly who Richarlison is and will have his side well-drilled to keep him out.

The former Watford man has scored six goals in 11 league games this season.

Richarlison has been shining 

In fact, Klopp singled him out as having been key to the club's progress under Silva.

“Silva has the best Everton squad [I have faced], he brought in Richarlison, what a player he is. It’s the best-tuned squad, 100 per cent," he said, per the Sun.

Klopp has been singling out Richarlison

“Good organisation, speed, Coleman back and fit, Keane settled, Mina brilliant player, Digne like a young Baines. England’s No.1. Really good team.

"The improvement of Everton is obvious. Completely different team, different style, it’s good.”

The odds are inevitably not in Everton's favour but it's sure to be a mesmerising derby, as it always is. 

Who are you backing - Liverpool or Everton? Have your say in the comments.
