The Toffees are a distant 10 points behind their neighbors and sit 11th in the table. Everton has followed up three-straight losses with three-straight draws and is coming off a 1-1 draw against Southampton.

Everton has had a tough time winning games in the Merseyside Derby as their last three-point haul came in a 2-0 at Goodison Park back in October of 2010. There have been 10 Premier League meetings between the two since then and Liverpool has won three and there have been seven draws. In fact, the previous three have resulted in a draw as well as six of the last seven.
