Everton-Liverpool Preview

While the 222nd edition of the Merseyside Derby has the chance to provide bragging rights, both Liverpool and Everton have bigger stakes to play for Tuesday at Anfield – namely European positioning and to stay in the Premier League title chase. Everton overcame a 2-1 deficit on the strength of a brace by Romelu Lukaku in a 10-minute span late in the second half, but Liverpool snatched a road point in the 89th minute when Daniel Sturridge headed home Steven Gerrard’s free kick in the 89th minute. Both Liverpool (13-4-5) and Everton (11-9-2) are currently in the top six and still within touching distance of Arsenal, with the Reds eight points behind the London side and the Toffees one point further back.
