Liverpool go into the Merseyside Derby on the back of three-straight victories and clean sheets in all competitions and are just two points behind Chelsea at the top of the table.
Manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to see a reaction from his players as Everton got their better over his side during a 2-0 defeat at Anfield the last time the two clubs faced each other last season.
As the old saying goes, the form book goes out of the window in derby matches and the same is likely to apply here.
Here is everything you need to know about Everton vs Liverpool:
Everton will take on Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday 1st December 2021 in the Premier League and will kick off at 8:15 pm GMT.

Everton still have some significant injuries that will not make tonight’s game. Yerry Mina is sidelined with a hamstring problem, with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Tom Davies and Andre Gomes not expected back until later this month.
The Toffees are set to line up in a somewhat defensive shape in a bid to cope with the opposition’s attacking prowess through the middle and in the wide areas.
For Liverpool, Roberto Firmino is still absent along with Naby Keita who is not expected back for a few more weeks. Curtis Jones could be in contention but tonight’s game might have come too soon for him to start.
Joe Gomez and Harvey Elliott are also out but it should not stop Klopp from fielding a strong team against Everton.
Everton Predicted XI: Pickford, Coleman, Godfrey, Keane, Digne, Townsend, Doucoure, Allan, Iwobi, Gray, Rondon.
Liverpool Predicted XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Jota, Mane.
If Everton perform like they did against Brentford, then it could be a rout for Liverpool. However, the Reds have struggled at Goodison Park in recent years and with fans back in the stadium, their task could be a lot tougher to topple the plucky Toffees.
Benitez desperately needs a result here to ease the pressure looming over his head. But we don’t think this game is going to help his cause with the Everton faithful.
Prediction: Everton 1-2 Liverpool
There is no getting away from it. Various bookmakers believe there is only going to be one winner from tonight’s match. But as we all know, football is a funny old game at the best of times.
