Liverpool vs Everton H2H: The story so far
Liverpool and Everton have played each other 293 times in the past, making this one of English football’s most-played fixtures. They first played against each other in 1894 with Everton running out as 3-0 winners but despite that loss, Liverpool have the upper hand on the head to head.
- Liverpool wins: 124
- Draws: 86
- Everton wins: 83
While both clubs have enjoyed periods of superiority over each other, Liverpool’s record against Everton over the past 13 years has been incredible. Out of their last 28 meetings, Everton have won just the once and that was during the 2020/21 season when football was played behind closed doors.
History in the making
If Everton can stun the world on Saturday and defeat Liverpool then it will be their first victory at Anfield (with fans inside) since the turn of the century. The last time they won an away derby was in September 1999 when an early strike from Kevin Campbell gave the Toffees victory.

Liverpool 2-0 Everton
The most recent Merseyside derby was played at Anfield in February 2023. By this point of the season, Liverpool weren’t playing for an awful lot after a disappointing campaign while Everton were battling against relegation for the second consecutive season. The Reds got the job done on the night thanks to goals from Mo Salah and Cody Gakpo.
Everton 0-0 Liverpool
At the beginning of the 2022/23 season, Everton welcomed Liverpool to Goodison Park. The Toffees were the better team on the day and Frank Lampard’s side did more than enough for the three points. However, Liverpool escaped with a point thanks to some fantastic goalkeeping from Allison and some poor finishing from Neal Maupay.
Liverpool 2-0 Everton
In April 2022, Liverpool were in pursuit of an historic quadruple and their local rivals weren’t going to get in their way. Although Everton managed to get to half time with the scores level, Jurgen Klopp’s men then kicked into action after the break to run out 2-0 winners. Andy Robertson netted on the hour mark before Divock Origi made sure of the three points late on.
Everton 1-4 Liverpool
One of the heaviest defeats Everton have suffered at the hands of Liverpool in recent years came in December 2021. The writing was on the wall for Rafael Benitez as Everton boss after this one with the away end taunting Goodison Park with his old Liverpool anthem. Two goals from Mo Salah and one apiece for Jordan Henderson and Diogo Jota completed the scoring.
Liverpool 0-2 Everton
Everton’s last victory over Liverpool came in February 2021. Under Carlo Ancelotti, Everton were pushing for European football while Liverpool were having a disastrous year as title holders. Played in front of an empty Anfield, Richarlison put the visitors ahead early on before a Sigurðsson penalty made sure of the win late on.
Origi wins the derby in freakish fashion
There have been plenty of iconic moments in this fixture over the years but one that stands out in recent times was the Anfield derby of December 2018. The match appeared to be fizzling out to a 0-0 draw when a looping volley from Virgil van Dijk bounced off the crossbar twice before falling to Divock Origi who was waiting underneath the goal to nod home.
Jurgen Klopp has enjoyed a phenomenal record against Everton since becoming Liverpool boss in 2015 and it’s difficult to see changing on Saturday. Liverpool look like a force to be reckoned with again and against Everton on home turf, they should have far too much firepower. We are going for Liverpool 4-0 Everton.
