Welcome to our Merseyside derby aka Everton vs. Liverpool preview and head to head. No other team is doing as well as they had hoped at the start of the season. Liverpool were hoping to be challenging for the lead, and Everton were at least looking for a place in Europe. Neither look likely at this juncture. Only 7 points separate Everton from the relegation zone, and while you would say they are too good to go down, it has happened to others in the past. However 2 draws and a win have seen them pull away from the bottom, but they still need more points to ensure survival. Liverpool on the other hand have only lost one of their last 11 matches and that was at Manchester United. They will want to keep that momentum and try to push for a place in Europe next season.
