Liverpool are set to take on Everton in the Merseyside derby, with four points separating the Reds from league leaders Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have six English top-flight fixtures remaining as the title race heats up.

Klopp’s men face a packed remainder of the month, hosting Villarreal in the Champions League next week before visiting Newcastle at the end of the month.
