Liverpool FC

The Reds (11-7-5, 40 points) have not performed well in their past five Premier League games, winning only two. Those setbacks have caused the defending champions to lose ground in the table. Liverpool FC is now 10 points behind Manchester City. In their last match against league leaders, they surrendered three consecutive goals in the final 17 minutes to lose 1-4. The setback could be blamed on goalkeeper Alisson, who committed two costly defensive mistakes in the second half. However, their offense played badly as well despite having possession for 55% of the match. They only scored once in eight shots against Manchester City, courtesy of a penalty by Mohamed Salah in the 63rd minute.

Players to Watch: Mohamed Salah (16 goals, 3 assists); Sadio Mane (7 goals, 3 assists); Roberto Firmino (6 goals, 4 assists); Diogo Jota (5 goals); Georgino Wijnaldum (2 goals).

Everton FC

The Toffees (11-4-6, 37 points) are in seventh and are in striking distance of the top three due to their fine play lately. In their last match against Manchester United, Everton came from two goals down to share the points with the Red Devils in a six-goal shootout. Abdoulaye Doucoure and James Rodriguez helped erase a 0-2 deficit as they connected in the 49th and 52nd minute and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored in the fifth minute of added time to frustrate United, who fell five points behind league leaders Manchester City in the table. Everton had an efficient night despite having the possession for 38% of the entire match. They made the most out of their six shots (three on goal) to settle for a miraculous draw against Manchester United. With 13 Premier League goals, Calvert-Lewin is expected to lead Everton’s offense with Rodriguez providing support.

Players to Watch: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (13 goals); James Rodriguez (5 goals, 3 assists); Lucas Digne (6 assists); Gylfi Sigurdsson (3 goals, 2 assists); Abdoulaye Doucoure (2 goals, 3 assists); Michael Keane (3 goals, 1 assist).
