Liverpool might be just two wins away from a first league crown in 30 years, but city rivals Everton would love nothing more than to delay their title parade.

The 237th Merseyside Derby will take place at Goodison Park, despite initial concerns that the historic fixture may be held at a neutral venue.

Jurgen Klopp’s side make the short hop across Stanley Park on Sunday knowing just 6 points from their remaining fixtures would seal the title.

The Reds sit at the summit of the Premier League table, a mammoth 22 points clear of nearest challengers Manchester City.

Everton meanwhile will be looking up the table rather than over their shoulders, haven shaken off the spectre of relegation which haunted them earlier in the campaign.

The Toffees will have their eye on a European place, knowing an extra spot may become available depending on the outcome of Manchester City’s court case with UEFA.

Liverpool boss Klopp is likely to be back to full strength for the derby, with Andy Robertson expected to shake off a knock.

Mohamed Salah is also expected to be passed fit, having been the subject of an injury scare earlier this week.

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti doesn’t have the same luxury in the home dugout, however, with the Blues injury list increasing during the 3-month layoff.

Theo Walcott will miss out – back surgery keeping the winger on the sidelines for two weeks.

Ancelotti won’t have Yerry Mina available either, with the Colombia international expected to be out for several weeks after suffering a thigh tear earlier this month.

Defender Michael Keane and Midfielder Fabian Delph are also expected absentees for Everton.

Ancelotti could turn to Morgan Schneiderlin and Andre Gomes to run the Toffees midfield, as they look to secure their first Merseyside derby victory for close to ten years.
