Liverpool have been almost invincible since the start of this Premier League season and they have another test to pass when they take on Everton in the Merseyside Derby later this week in what’s a Matchday 15 clash in the Premier League.
The Premier League leaders struggled towards the end of the Brighton and Hove Albion game at the weekend especially in the latter stages but were able to hold on for a 2-1 win thus making it 13 victories and one draw from 14 league games.
Everton is at the other end of the table but the Toffees will certainly test Liverpool and their event shaky form despite their precarious position on the Premier League table.

Toffees manager Marco Silva is under serious pressure to hold on to his job with the club two points above the relegation zone after 14 league games.
The big news ahead of the first Merseyside Derby of the season is the absence of first-choice Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker who will miss the game as a result of suspension following the red card he received at the weekend against Brighton.
Second choice Adrian will deputize for him in goal for the Everton game.
Possible Liverpool XI vs Everton (4-3-3): Adrian; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson; Georginio Wijnaldum, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane.
