Everton head to Liverpool this weekend looking to correct the problems, which have fallen on their defence this season.
Liverpool have already lost three games in the Premier League as they strive for the same consistency they showed as they nearly won the league title last time round.
We’ve looked at how the sides compare against each other in key areas ahead of the game.
Everton’s attack has been better this season scoring more goals, which is surprising considering the ample talent in Liverpool’s frontline.
The Toffees also have a better conversion rate this season because those goals have come from fewer shots on goal.
Liverpool need to be more precise when they do get good goalscoring opportunities, which could make the difference in tense games such as this one.
One area Liverpool have been better is defensively, which has been the main weakness for Everton this season.
Liverpool will back themselves to defend well and prepare in the right manner for this game. Whichever side keeps a clean sheet is giving their attack the best chance of taking the points if things stay tight throughout the game.
There’s not much to choose between the teams at all in terms of the number of tackles being made and the number of accurate passes played.
They both have aggressive midfields and protect the ball well although Rodgers will want the number of accurate passes the team is playing to improve.
