A few tidbits and some pre-match questions to help pass the time before Liverpool finally take the field again against Everton in the Merseyside Derby
Y’all, it’s finally here. We finally get to don our finest replica kits and shirts to cheer on our beloved Reds. I know it has been awhile and we are all very excited, but please try to resist the urge to go full kit wanker.
Liverpool will finally take the field again as they resume their march to their first Premier League title in 30 years. At the most, Liverpool need six points from the last nine games to clinch the title. There is a lot of other really important stuff happening in the world right now, but it’s hard not to get excited to think about Jordan Henderson doing his tippy-tap dance before lifting the trophy.
While all players will have Black Lives Matter on the back of their jerseys today, Trent Alexander-Arnold will also wear customized boots with the phrase and a raised fist on them. He took to social media to show the boots and provide a statement.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp can surpass Bob Paisley for the most consecutive games without a loss to Everton if Liverpool get a result today. With Klopp in charge, Liverpool have seven wins and three draws in the first 10 games in the Premier League.
