Everton v Liverpool

Goodison Park

Saturday, 11 December

Kick-off: 1245 GMT


# EVERTON and Liverpool go head-to-head this Saturday lunchtime for the 198th Merseyside derby. It is also their 171st League clash, making it the second most common fixture in English top flight football, behind the Toffees' meetings with Aston Villa. Everton will claim to be "Kings of Mersyside" standing four places and nine points ahead of their fierce rivals, but Liverpool are on the look-out for a fifth successive Premiership victory at Goodison Park.

# Victory will see the Blues leapfrog Arsenal, who don't play until Sunday, and rise to second place for the first ever time in an established Premiership table (established being defined as after the first three games of the season). Eleven of Everton's 13 Premiership matches that have ended in a conclusive result have been by a one-goal margin (nine wins, two losses). They have won six games 1-0, and lost two 0-1.

# The Toffees are striving for a first win in eight Premiership matches with Liverpool and a second in ten at home against them.

# LIVERPOOL cross Stanley Park in pursuit of only their second away win of this Premiership season, buoyed by a magnificent 3-1 home win against Olympiakos, when they came from behind and achieved the two goal victory required for qualification to the Champions League knock out stages, courtesy of a wonder strike from Steven Gerrard.

# Rafael Benitez Reds' are unbeatable in the Premiership this season when a clean sheet has been attained, but conversely have yet to secure a point when failing to score.

# The Reds dispelled their blues in this corresponding fixture last season, when the quality of finishing made the difference between the teams. While Wayne Rooney spurned four good scoring chances for Everton, Michael Owen scored twice and Harry Kewell chipped in with his first for the club.



Steve Bennett (Orpington)

# Steve Bennett has produced two red cards in the nine Premiership games he's overseen this season, with both of the players concerned belonging to these participating clubs. Tim CAHILL was dismissed for a second bookable offence in Everton's 0-1 victory at Middlesbrough on 11 September, and JOSEMI was sent off when shown two yellow cards during Liverpool's 2-4 victory at Fulham on 16 October.

Die möglichen Aufstellungen für das Merseyside-Derby :eek:

Everton: Martyn - Hibbert, Weir, Stubbs, Pistone - Kilbane, Carsley, Gravesen, Cahill - Ferguson, Bent

FC Liverpool: Kirkland - Finnan, Carragher, Hyppiä, Riise - Hamann - Sinama-Pongolle, Xabi Alonso, Gerrard, Kewell - Baros (Mellor)

Ich hoffe auf einen neuerlichen Erfolg meiner Reds und glaube Benitez wird das Team auswärts so ähnlich wie gegen die Gunners aufstellen - also Hamann in der defensiven Rolle vor der Abwehr und Gerrard und Xabi Alonso abwechselnd als offensive Mittelfeldleute. Nach seiner starken Vorstellung gegen Olympiakos rechen ich fix mit Flo Sinama-Pongolle als Rechtsaussen, Harry Kewell ist, wie die letzten Spiele eindeutig bewiesen haben, als Linksausen wesentlich stärker und gefährlicher, denn als 2. Stürmer...vielleicht erhält Neil Mellor auf Grund seines Erfolgserlebnisses gegen die Griechen den Vorzug gegenüber dem (noch) nicht fitten Milan Baros... :clever: Die Bank könnte jedenfalls entscheidend sein, während Liverpool noch Mellor/Baros oder Sinama-Pongolle (falls dieser nicht spielt) den Spanier Nunez zur Verfügung hat, sind bei den Toffees mMn lediglich noch Leon Osman u. James McFadden beachtenswert... :betrunken:

mein Tipp: 1:2 für den FC Liverpool (Tore: Bent bzw. Gerrard, Sinama-Pongolle) :v:

Ich seh die Toffees trotz der Tabellensituation nicht als Favorit, ich glaube an den Sieg und den damit beginnenden Absturz der Blauen! :finger:

Der Post ist von einem gebürtigen Scouser, ich finds super was er da ganz unten über seinen Vater sagt :lol::D

I know for some Liverpool fans that consider the Man United games more "important" than the gold old merseyside derby, which to me is extremely strange as I dont know any league game or any game with the exceptions of cup finals that are more important to me than the derby game.

Over the past few years the traditional "friendly derby" atmosphere between the fans has gone and the rivalry is now bigger than ever. Tomorrows derby at goodison is even more important to us with being so far behind everton in the league!

A win is essential

Hab die Partie im TV verfolgt ... keine schlechte Partie!

Everton hate chancen auf das 2:0, aber es ging schlag auf schlag, das 2:0 lab ebenso am Fuß wie der Ausgleich!

Das Publikum war ein Traum, und das Stadion rastete nach dem Schlusspfiff fast vor Jubel aus ... da wär ich gern dabei gewesen.

Das Tor ... einfach genial wie Carsley da abgezogen hat :super:
