20th Feb 2021 | Premier League
It's a fixture which has produced a Premier League record 22 red cards already. Factor in the ill-feeling and it would be a surprise for 22 players to be on the pitch at the end.
The Merseyside derby probably won’t need any fans to produce a firecracker atmosphere after what happened at Goodison Park earlier in the season.
WilliamHill offer a market-leading 5/1 on there being a red card in the match and it seems far more likely than that.
Local rivals don’t need extra reasons to fly into challenges but they have them anyway. Jordan Pickford’s reckless challenge ended Virgil Van Dyke’s season very prematurely, and Liverpool felt robbed of points as well as their most pivotal defender.
Klopp spiced things up further by implying that it was embarrassing for the champions to be so near to Everton in the league table. He also played down talk of revenge - but then he would, wouldn’t he.
