EPL: EFC vs LFC



The 288th Merseyside derby is shaping up to be one of the most exciting in recent years as top team Everton welcome champions Liverpool to Goodison Park. Jurgen Klopp's team wants to recover from their worst ever defeat in the Premier League at Aston Villa's hands last round, but they will face a team that is leading the rankings this season.

Everton are again the league's top scorer again and Everton lost just 1 of 14 home games in all competitions under Carlo Ancelotti. Forecasts certainly look good for the Toffees under a three-time Champions League manager, having won their first four opening games since 1969-70 - a season in which they won the title. National Park. It was not since 1938-39 that Everton had won five opening games in a single season and as fate had been, the fifth game of that particular campaign saw them beat their defending champions. at that time. You have to go back to 1894-95 - just two years after Liverpool was formed - for the last time Everton won the first eight games of the season in all competitions.

It has been a commemorative international holiday for Liverpool, which celebrated 5 years under Klopp last week and a decade owned by Fenway Sports Group on Thursday. It is also a special occasion that marks the true five years since Klopp took his first match as Liverpool manager, and notably 10 years since they were last beaten by Everton. Liverpool with the 7-2 humiliation they suffered at the hands of Aston Villa the previous round saw them plunge into a depth not even seen in the dark times of Hicks and Gillett. However, panic will not happen despite the fact that Liverpool's remote defense strategy went bankrupt in that match, the first time they have conceded 7 goals in any game since. April 1963, and the first time the champions of the tournament have conceded 7 goals in a single game since September 1953. It ranks among the worst results in the long and illustrious history of the club. , only West Bromwich Albion have conceded more than Liverpool 11 in the opening four games of the campaign - the most at this stage of the season since 1937-38 and they lost 13 games last season to score. lost similarly. Away form will also be of growing concern for champions as they have now lost four of their last eight Premier League matches - the same number of defeats they have suffered in 46 previous games. only West Bromwich Albion conceded more than Liverpool 11 in the opening four of the campaign - the most at this stage of the season since 1937-38 and they lost 13 games last season to concede the number of goals conceded. the same, similar.
