Everton faces the toughest test of the Frank Lampard era when Manchester City comes to town for this fixture.
The Toffees have been inconsistent since the former midfielder became their boss and they would face a City side that needs to be ruthless.
Tottenham beat Pep Guardiola’s side in their last league game to blow the title race wide open and Lampard can help Liverpool close the gap at the top.
He played for Chelsea and now manages Everton, so he is the wrong person to help Liverpool, but his team needs a positive result more than the Reds do.
Everton has lost two and won two of their competitive matches under Lampard, but they have lost two of their last three matches in the league.
Before losing to Tottenham, City were on a splendid run of form and Pep Guardiola’s side is a well-oiled machine that can easily return to form.
They would play under some kind of pressure in this game, but Everton would need to be at their brilliant best to stop the defending champions from winning.
