A derby that rarely needs any more spice, has added drama following events at Goodison Park in October, including an injury that has been talked about more than most royal marriages.
Of more interest though is the fact that Everton can draw level with Liverpool with a victory.
However, the Toffees’ winless run at Anfield now stretches back almost 22 years.
Could this be their year, in a season like no other?
Or will the Toffees be singing the Blues once again on Saturday night?

Our Top Odds Pick – Sadio Mané to Score – Evs at Paddy Power
Liverpool’s Senegalese ace plundered his 11th goal of the season against Leipzig in midweek, setting him up nicely for a clash with one of his favourite opponents.
Mané has scored four goals in his last seven league games against the Toffeemen, and he would have had more than one in the reverse fixture, had it not been for a questionable VAR decision.
The Reds will be feeling much happier with life after an impressive Champions League win over Leipzig in midweek.
While Everton have won just two of their last eight league games, failing to keep a clean sheet in that time.
So whatever the final score on Saturday evening, we reckon Mane’s name will be on the score sheet.
Our Long Shot – 1-1 Draw – 19/2 at BetVictor
We called the 2-2 draw earlier in the season, and we reckon it will be hard to separate both teams once again.
Liverpool’s midweek win papered over some of the cracks after a poor run of Premier League form that has seen them lose their last three league games.
The Reds haven’t won at home in the league since the middle of December, a run totalling five matches.
Everton are far more comfortable away from Goodison Park, losing just two of their 11 away league games this season.
And they can nab another draw at the old enemy on Saturday.
