Liverpool vs. Everton

Liverpool remain unbeaten after 14 games in the Premier League, while local rivals Everton are struggling at the wrong end of the table and are just two points off the drop zone.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will have to cope without first-choice goalkeeper Alisson for Wednesday’s match. The Brazilian was sent off for handball against Brighton on Saturday and will be replaced in the starting XI by Adrian:

The Spaniard put in a nervy performance from the bench as a substitute against the Seagulls. He conceded a goal to Lewis Dunk and almost fumbled a header from Pascal Gross over his goalline.

Liverpool still ran out 2-1 winners but the result means they are still yet to keep a clean sheet at Anfield in the Premier League this season.

However, the Reds have been prolific at the other end of the pitch which spells bad news for Everton. The Reds have netted 32 goals in their 14 league games and have become lethal from set-pieces:

Victory for Liverpool could spell the end of the road for Everton manager Marco Silva. The 42-year-old is “on the brink of losing his job” after Sunday’s defeat to Leicester, according to Jason Burt at the Daily Telegraph.

Everton would love nothing more than to damage Liverpool’s title bid by inflicting a first league defeat of the season on the Reds but have managed only one win on their travels in the league this season and have not won at Anfield since 1999.

    

Manchester United vs. Tottenham

Mourinho takes Spurs to Old Trafford on Wednesday on the back of three straight victories since replacing Mauricio Pochettino in the dugout.

The 56-year-old has guided Spurs past West Ham United, Olympiacos and Bournemouth which has breathed life into the club’s season and fired them into fifth place in the table:

The Portuguese has also revitalised midfielder Dele Alli. The Englishman has three goals and an assist in his last three games and has earned praise from his new manager:

Mourinho was sacked as Manchester United boss in December 2018 after some disappointing results and replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian impressed in the role on an interim basis and was handed the role permanently in March.

However, Solskjaer has endured a difficult campaign and comes into the match under pressure:

The Red Devils head into the match on the back of a three-game winless run and take on Manchester City after Wednesday’s clash against Spurs. 

Defeat in both of those games could spell the end for Solskjaer, according to Bleacher Report’s Rob Blanchette:

Mourinho would love to inflict more misery on his former team and take all three points from Old Trafford but Manchester United have been better in the big games this season.

Solskjaer’s men have drawn with Liverpool and Arsenal and beaten Chelsea and could have key midfielders Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay available again after injury, per Liam Prenderville at the Mirror.
