This Sunday at Everton’s Goodison Park, Liverpool FC take the pitch for the first time since March 11.
LFC are 27-1-1 in the Premier League, 22 points ahead with nine games remaining. The magic number is six: Any combination of Liverpool points won and Manchester City points lost that totals six gives LFC their first league championship since 1990. (Three points for a win, one for a draw.)
Liverpool haven’t lost a Merseyside Derby since 2010. They’ve since posted 11 wins and 10 draws against crosstown rivals Everton.
It all bodes well. But the job isn’t done. COME ON, YOU REDS!
