Everton take on Liverpool on Saturday 7th February, 2015, with kickoff at 17:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
Unlike the North London affair this derby is between two teams a fair distance from where they want to be as Everton lie twelfth in the table and Liverpool seek to make up lost time and ground on the teams in the top four, of which they are not a part. Recent weeks have seen a degree of progress for Brendan Rodger, but the gap is large and it will need to be a very special run-in if he is to manage in the Champions League next year.
Although the debut of Aaron Lennon will grab headlines, it is the return of James McCarthy that Everton want most, and that could happen this evening.
