Jurgen Klopp conceded that his side’s title defence is all but over after the Reds’ torrid series of recent results, winning just two of their last 10 Premier League games, including desperate defeats against the likes of Burnley and Brighton. Liverpool collapsed in a dramatic fashion against Leicester last weekend, conceding three times in the space of seven minutes, with the champions accepted to be suffering from a crisis in confidence. However, there was a sign their fortunes may be about to change in midweek with an impressive 2-0 victory against RB Leipzig in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.
Everton have not won at Anfield since 1999 and are suffering from a slight slump of their own, having been outclassed by relegation-threatened Fulham before a 3-1 defeat by runaway leaders Manchester City. The Toffees still remain in a very promising position, though, entering the weekend just three points adrift of their sixth-placed rivals while also boasting a game in hand. Carlo Ancelotti has already been handed a major boost with the news that Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who had been absent recently with a hamstring strain, is able to feature.
