Everton take on Liverpool tonight in a key match for under-fire Marco Silva.
Everton travel to Anfield tonight to take on Liverpool in a must-win Premier League tie. The Toffees are lingering just one place above the relegation zone ahead of the match with the table-topping Reds. Express Sport is on hand with all the team news.
Marco Silva is under significant pressure at Goodison Park, having lost eight out of 14 Premier League games so far this campaign.
Everton are going into the game against the league leaders off the back of a gutting 2-1 defeat to Leicester City on Sunday.
The Toffees thew away a 1-0 lead at the King Power stadium in the last 20 minutes, with Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho cancelling out Richarlison’s opener.
The defeat did little to help Silva’s situation at the club, despite Leicester’s lofty position in the table, and the club are believed to be considering Eddie Howe as a replacement if they end Silva’s tenure.

Liverpool, on the other hand, are still flying high at the top of the table, and are yet to lose a league game this campaign.
But Silva believes that his squad can carry on their good form shown in the first hour against Leicester tonight and ease the pressure on his shoulders.
“It would have a very good impact, no doubt about it,” he said of the impact a win will have. “It will not wipe out anything we did in the last one and a half, two months, but it will be very important for us.
“It can change [the feeling from]the last result, it can give us the chance to get points which we need and for sure it can give confidence to our players.

“It’s a fantastic game to play. Of course we’d prefer to play in our stadium, but they have to enjoy.
“It will be a tough game, is it will be for all clubs who visit them. Let’s go there to play.
“We are in this situation but we go to play and embrace the challenge like we did last season.
“Of course our record is not good enough, 20 years there without a win is a long time but hopefully it’s an opportunity to change that.”
Everton will be without Andre Gomes, Jean-Philippe Gambin and Theo Walcott, while Fabian Delph, Seamus Coleman and Beni Baningime are all doubtful.
The Toffees are likely to play the same 5-4-1 formation they played against Leicester tonight.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin is set to hold onto the central striker spot.
Everton predicted line-up vs Liverpool [5-4-1]: Pickford, Colgate, Mina, Keane, Digne, Sidibe; Sigurdsson, Davies, Kean, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin.
