Fans can look forward to a fiery Merseyside derby given Liverpool’s fantastic form

Here is what Everton can expect tonight.

Liverpool are the team with the best form in the Premier League after bagging 16 points in the last six matches.

In comparison, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are sixth, seventh and eighth place on the league’s form table.

Credit goes to Brendan Rodgers who clearly has done something right to fix the team that had a terrible start to the season.

We may not have a single Golden Boot contender but the many different talents have been lovely to watch especially in the past few games.

Philippe Coutinho has been increasingly magical and received well-deserved praises from the boss and his colleagues which coincided well with the new deal signed.

His footwork and sleek moves on the pitch are impressive and if he keeps at it, he will definitely be one of the most feared young Reds alongside Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge.

Speaking of which, what a thrilling comeback Sturridge made with that goal against West Ham! After two post-injury introductions, fans can’t wait for him get back into the first XI.

The case of the goalkeeper still remains a mystery to me.

What they have done to Simon Mignolet? And who is that goalie impersonating him in the past few games with awesome saves?

I guess some things are better left unknown while we sit back and enjoy the exhilarating performances.

Tonight, the lads take a short trip to Goodison Park for the clash against Everton.

The emotions will be running higher than usual this time.

For the Reds, there is no better time to head to a Merseyside derby than now — when the team is brimming with confidence and with potential to be even better.

But with great form, comes great pressure and determination from the opponents.

Everton may be seven points from relegation zone but they have slowly been getting a grip on improving their form. If there is one night they choose to make a historical comeback, tonight would be a good one for them.

Emotions will be running higher than usual with this being Steven Gerrard’s last derby before he leaves England. Oh, what a fantastic farewell it would be for him to not just leave Goodison Park with three points but also get his name on the scoresheet.

I’m predicting a loss for the Toffees with the usual suspects Coutinho, Sterling and either Sturridge or Gerrard finding the back of the net.

Another derby takes place today in North London when Arsenal travel to meet Spurs.

Main man Alexis Sanchez has been ruled out of the match but expect the visitors to go all out to move further above their opponents and towards their annual goal of securing a top-four spot.

A weekend of two emotion-packed derbies and all teams picking up their pace to fight for a better spot on the table, let’s all buckle up and enjoy the ride.

What would we do without football?
