Liverpool vs Everton Q&A – Merseyside derby team news, score predictions and more

The  Joe Thomas and Paul Gorst are ready to answer your questions ahead of Monday’s night huge game.


Welcome to a special Q&A ahead of next Monday’s Merseyside derby – the 242nd time Everton will face Liverpool in a competitive match.


There are plenty of issues to debate before the teams square off at Anfield following indifferent seasons for both clubs and Everton correspondent Joe Thomas and Liverpool counterpart Paul Gorst are on hand to field your queries.


For the second campaign in a row Everton are battling to avoid relegation from the Premier League and are in the drop zone on goal difference.


The decision to sack Frank Lampard as manager and replace him with Sean Dyche, however, has had an immediate impact after the no-nonsense ex-Burnley boss earned a 1-0 win over table-topping Arsenal in his first match in charge.


Liverpool have gone from chasing an unprecedented quadruple last year, to a mid-table medocrity in this. The Reds are out of both domestic competitions they won last year, and face a daunting last-16 clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League.


The scrutiny has increased on owners FSG amid their apparent willingness to sell the club, with fans unhappy about a perceived lack of investment on the pitch, while even Jurgen Klopp has started to feel the heat.


How will both sides line up for the match at Anfield? Which manager is under greater pressure to get a result? What are the broader consequences of defeat? Would victory for Liverpool reignite their top-four push? If Everton triumph will it give them the confidence to beat the drop?


Post your questions in the comments section below so Paul and Joe can answer them from 12:30 onwards. In the meantime you can take our special Merseyside derby poll below.
