Liverpool and Everton are staggering 47 points apart – but chasm between neighbours on verge of getting much bigger

LIVERPOOL welcome Everton to Anfield this afternoon in a Merseyside derby that could have huge implications on the title race AND relegation battle.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are battling Manchester City for the Premier League crown, while Frank Lampard’s Toffees continue to fight against the drop.

Liverpool head into today’s Merseyside derby in red-hot form

Frank Lampard and Everton still face the prospect of a first ever Premier League relegation

The stakes couldn’t really be higher for both sides – but at opposite ends of the spectrum entirely.

Klopp and Co are worlds apart from Lampard’s lowly Everton, and head into the game a mammoth 47 POINTS ahead of their rivals in the Prem table.

It will be the biggest gap between the two sides when facing one another in Premier League history.

And a win for Liverpool would take them half a century of points clear of their neighbours from across Stanley Park.

Previously the biggest gap between the two sides when facing each other was 45 points, back in 2020, the season the Reds sealed a first top-flight title in 30 years.

The only problem for Everton is the chasm between the two sides is on the verge of getting even bigger.

Lampard’s side are still in a relegation battle after Burnley’s win against Southampton, and another three points for the Clarets against Wolves would see Everton in the relegation zone before kick off at Anfield.

The Toffees are facing the very real prospect of a first ever relegation from the Premier League, and a first relegation since the 1950-51 season.

Only Arsenal’s record of no relegations since 1919-20 betters Everton’s current top-flight tenure.

Liverpool meanwhile continue to go from strength to strength.

And there is growing optimism around Anfield with each passing victory that the QUADRUPLE could well and truly be on.

Skipper Jordan Henderson already lifted the Carabao Cup back in February.

The Reds also secured a place in the FA Cup final with victory over Manchester City at Wembley, while only Villarreal stand between them and a spot in the Champions League final.

Klopp’s side are ready to pounce on any City slip up in the Prem too.

They now trail Pep Guardiola’s side by four points after their 5-1 win over Watford yesterday but have a game in hand.

So while this campaign could go down in history as Liverpool’s best ever season, it may well take the mantle of Everton’s worst.
