The latest Merseyside derby takes place on Monday night and it carries plenty of importance with it – perhaps more than normal.
Goodison Park plays host to the latest installment of the fixture between Everton and Liverpool, and it looks as though it’s a chance for the Blues to keep the Reds from winning the league, at least for a bit.

He’s brought in some new faces to help him with his plans, too, with the Italian connection at the club growing as a number of new coaches arrive to his backroom team:
