Liverpool against Everton is one of the fiercest rivalries in English football with both clubs keen to earn the city’s bragging rights.

Historically the Reds have always had the upper hand and finish above their noisy neighbours, but that gives the Toffees extra motivation to frustrate their rivals.

That happened last season, when Everton held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park in early March.

It ultimately harmed Liverpool's title challenge and was the last time they or Manchester City dropped points in the Premier League title race.

The first contest between the two teams will be remembered for having one of the most bizarre endings of all-time.

With the match seemingly about to finish goalless, Virgil van Dijk sliced a volley which looked like it was heading into the Kop at Anfield.

But the flight of the ball was awkward and bounced off the top of Jordan Pickford’s crossbar and back into play.

Waiting in the wings was Divock Origi and the substitute nodded the ball into the net to seal the points in the 97th minute to become an instant Liverpool hero.

Also like last season, the return match at Goodison comes in early March.

Legendary Liverpool boss Bill Shankley once said: “If Everton were playing at the bottom of my garden, I’d shut the curtains.”

"When I've got nothing better to do, I look down the league table to see how Everton are getting along,” he also said.

Dave Hickson used to play for both clubs during the 1950s but he was a bona fide hero at Goodison Park.

“I’d break every bone in my body for any club I play for but I’d die for Everton,” the former centre-forward famously said.
