The league is a different story all together for Everton, though, having only picked up three points from their last six games, in what has been a woeful top-flight campaign for the Toffees.

Ramiro Funes Mori, who scored in Everton’s 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday, admits his side have a tough week ahead of them but says they will do everything to ensure the biggest week of the club’s season doesn’t end in disappointment.

“Overall it is disappointing – we wanted to win at home,” said Funes Mori after the Southampton game. “The goal didn’t mean anything because we did not win.

“We drew a game we should have won but we will keep fighting until the end. We don’t want to tie, we want to win.

“It is going to be an intense week. We have important games coming up so we will do everything to win against Liverpool and then go again in the FA Cup.”

Six of the previous seven Merseyside derbies in the league have finished as draws, including Brendan Rodgers’ last game in charge of the Reds in the 1-1 stalemate at Goodison Park in October.

Liverpool are undefeated in 10 top-flight derbies, with Everton’s last win coming in October 2010 when Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta netted in a 2-0 triumph on home soil.

Klopp will check on the fitness of both Divock Origi (back) and Kolo Toure (muscular problem), while Christian Benteke (knee), Emre Can (ankle) and Jordan Henderson (knee) are all out.

Everton will monitor Leighton Baines (groin) and Aaron Lennon (hamstring) in the lead up to kick-off, while Tom Cleverley (knock), Seamus Coleman and Phil Jagielka (both hamstring) are less likely to feature against Liverpool.

Key Opta stats:
