Romelu Lukaku has scored five goals in his past eight Premier League appearances against Liverpool

Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler believes that the Reds have the edge over Everton ahead of the Merseyside Derby and will prevail when the two teams go head to head on Monday.

Within 3 months of autumn "Liverpool" hit the excellent results in the Premier League, immediately became one of the contenders for the title.

The Scot's arrival at Anfield raised quite a few eyebrows and the reaction was justified. On the other hand, Liverpool have a game in hand and a win in the derby - significantly improve their own situation. Also keep an eye on the match preview and prediction before the kick-off in the Liverpool vs Everton encounter in the English premier League.

Liverpool were handed a free-kick late in the injury time of the second half of the second half from 40 yards and it looked like a lost cause just trying to score from the distance.

"But the Everton versus Liverpool derby in the city where I work now is bigger with emotions because of the incredible football culture in this country". Not that he expects Klopp's team to be quite so compliant, however.None of Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, defending champions Leicester, nor Manchester United have been able to take maximum points off the Reds, who'll want to merrily add Everton to the list during a packed festive schedule.

Shoot! It is the Merseyside derby and there should be plenty of action in this game.

"One out of 19 - it's time to beat them", he said. "I'm really looking forward to it, it's a very important moment of the season".

Romelu Lukaku- For Everton, much of their goal-scoring powers rest on the feet of Belgian forward Romelu Lukaku.

Number of goals both Everton and Liverpool have each conceded after 16 matches. Happy memories, to be sure, fueling the excitement for Monday's clash when the Reds travel across the park to Goodison. Despite Everton's continued improvement over the past fewyears, they haven't managed to get the better of their local rivals for the last six seasons, with their last win coming in October 2010. This itself could lead to a feisty affair, will both teams finish the game with 11-men? It is not so hard because, if Bournemouth can win against them, we have possibilities to win, too.

Through 226 games, Liverpool has won 89 times, Everton 66 times, and 71 games have ended in a draw. Tottenham host Burnley and Spurs will be seeking to follow up their midweek victory over Hull with another win here against a team on a downward spiral with four losses from their last five games, while Bournemouth, fresh off a win over the Champions, will host a very unpredictable Southampton side.
