The champions saw their 100 per cent start to the season end before the international break with a 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa.

Everton are the only team to have won all four of their opening Premier League fixtures and sit top of the table heading into Saturday’s early kick off.

The Toffees last beat Liverpool exactly a decade ago – a 2-0 home result on 17 October 2010, where Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta bagged the goals.

But Carlo Ancelotti’s men will be keen to show their progress this season by claiming three points against the Reds.

Everton v Liverpool team news

Everton: Both Allan and Richarlison should have recovered from injuries over the international break to be fit for Saturday’s game.

Andre Gomes may also be fit, but Ancelotti has Mason Holgate, Cenk Tosun and Jonjoe Kenny out. Seamus Coleman may be ready enough to earn a spot on the bench.

Liverpool: Joel Matip and Konstantinos Tsimikas should be fit to return, while Thiago Alcantara and Sadio Mane are back from isolation after testing positive for Covid-19.

Jurgen Klopp could well make changes following the 7-2 loss to Villa last time out, with James Milner and Jordan Henderson possibly being recalled to the first XI.

Our prediction: Everton v Liverpool

The international break couldn’t have come at a better time for Liverpool following their stunning defeat at Villa Park, yet Everton will head into this clash knowing the Reds are a wounded beast.

If there is one side that can match Liverpool’s exciting front three it is Everton, with Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and James Rodriguez all in form.

This game promises goals. Liverpool’s attack had papered over the cracks in its defence up until the Villa game, and Everton will be ready to exploit their shortcomings.

Our prediction: Everton 3-3 Liverpool
