Peter Beardsley nets late winner for Everton in first Premier League meeting
The Merseyside derby is live on Sky Sports this Sunday and it’s one of the most heated affairs on the English football calendar - no other fixture has produced more red cards during the modern era.
Liverpool have been re-energised as a title-contending powerhouse under Jurgen Klopp, while Everton had a flying start under Marco Silva but have struggled since the Merseyside derby in December.
Here, Sky Sports takes an interactive look at how the competition between the two Merseyside clubs has evolved throughout the Premier League era.

The two clubs are merely half a mile apart in distance but occupied polar ends of the Premier League table during the 1990s - with the exception of 1995/96, when the Toffees secured a sixth-place finish.
Everton dodged relegation by just one place in 1997/98 and 2003/04 before soaring to fourth, above the Reds, in 2004/05 - their highest-ever Premier League finish to date.
Meanwhile, despite winning 18 top-flight titles since 1892, Liverpool are yet to claim a Premier League crown - falling one place short on three occasions, in 2001/02, 2008/09 and 2013/14.
Disparity between the clubs’ success began to narrow in 2007/08, but re-emerged during Roberto Martinez’s tenure at Goodison.

The two Merseyside clubs have smashed their record transfers in recent years, with the Reds spending £75m on Virgil van Dijk and the Toffees shelling out £45m on Gylfi Sigurdsson.
In terms of total expenditure during the modern era, Liverpool have spent nearly twice as much as their neighbours – splashing £1.43bn on incoming transfers compared with Everton’s £766m.
The spending frenzies have reached unprecedented levels, too. Everton were injecting cash on transfers at a growing rate for eight successive seasons until this term.
Virgil van Dijk
Some of the most iconic players in Premier League history have played for these clubs, and some – such as Peter Beardsley - have played for both. But our interactive player list will also remind you of some you may have forgotten.
Former Liverpool stopper Pepe Reina played every game for four seasons running between 2007/08 and 2010/11, while Everton’s Tim Howard replicated that run between 2008/09 and 2011/12.
Remember when the Reds signed Fernando Torres? Everton’s top transfer that term was Yakubu, while Joleon Lescott was named their Player of the Year.
Both clubs have appointed a similar number of permanent managers over the past 26 years, with Liverpool installing eight and Everton with nine.
Howard Kendall enjoyed two stints at Goodison Park, while Gerard Houllier and Roy Evans forged a brief partnership at Liverpool before the former took sole control.

In terms of head to heads, Everton drew first blood during the modern era in a dramatic 2-1 win at Goodison Park in December 1992, with former Kop hero Peter Beardsley smashing the late winner.
But, since then, the red half of Merseyside have enjoyed the greater share of success – claiming 23 wins compared with Everton’s nine, with another 21 ending in stalemate.
The ultimate goal fest was a 3-3 draw at Goodison in November 2013, when Daniel Sturridge netted a last-minute leveller - while Liverpool have claimed two 4-0 wins, in 2014 and 2016.
There was late drama in December when an error from Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford allowed Divock Origi to score a 96th-minute winner.
Armed with 26 years of history, you now have the opportunity to select your ultimate Premier League Merseyside combined XI.
