Match date: 17/10/2020

As many as 39 years have waited Everton to welcome the city derby with Liverpool as the leader of the elite English soccer league, and his fans only regret that they will not be able to be in the stands today to give fiery support to coach Carlo Ancelotti's team. But even without that, the host enters the 237th Merseyside derby with great optimism, even hoping to break a long, long streak of 22 games without a win over Liverpool (last win in the Premiership 10 years ago).
Everton have a foundation for high expectations as they have all seven wins in the new season and four are in Premiership games. Ancelotti has put together a very compact team, and the summer reinforcements in the midfield (James Rodriguez, Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure) are proving to be the right choice. Striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored nine of Everton's 24 goals, including two hat-tricks. Such results cannot be accidental and Everton is at the moment as people say - "on fire".
Liverpool finally won the title after 30 years, but started the new season unconvincingly, which was especially evident in the last round when they suffered an embarrassing 2:7 defeat at Aston Villa stadium. The form of Jurgen Klopp's team is much weaker than last season, the defense line is very insecure, and the attack is not efficient enough. Mane and Thiago Alcantara had problems with the Covid 19 and are returning after 14 days without training, while first goalkeeper Allisson is still injured.
Klopp himself admits that a very difficult challenge awaits him at Goodison Park, and the experienced coach of the home team, Ancelotti, is certainly preparing a fierce pressure on the ball, and he doesn't problems with the absences of important players. Since the Italian came to the Toffees bench last December, he has been defeated only once in 13 games at home, which, along with the current form and confidence of his team, is another argument that Everton will not lose this derby with Liverpool.
Statistics show that seven of the past eight league matches at Goodison Park have ended in draws and Liverpool won the other game.
Also, the last three derbies at Everton stadium have finished goalless.
