Liverpool take on Everton in the Merseyside derby on Saturday in a bid to bounce back following two successive matches without a win.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds suffered a last-gasp defeat at Tottenham following a VAR-fueled controversy and also drew 2-2 with Brighton in the last game before the international break.
Liverpool have had problems in midfield and at the back this season and have conceded nine goals in the opening eight matches. However, they have had no problems at the other end of the field, having netted 18 times.
Everton have been floundering towards the foot of the table so far this season, having only just escaped relegation last time, with just two wins.

Liverpool could be boosted by Cody Gakpo, who returned to training ahead of the clash having missed the last two matches with a knee problem sustained in the Spurs defeat, while Diogo Jota is available again.
Despite playing recent World Cup qualifying matches, Alexis Mac Allister, Darwin Nunez, Luis Diaz and Alisson Becker are all expected to feature. Liverpool will be without Andy Robertson who sustained a shoulder injury on international duty with Scotland, and Kostas Tsimikas is expected to take his place.
Everton could welcome back Idrissa Gueye, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin is fit to lead the line for the visitors.
Predicted line ups:
Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsmikas, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai, Gravenberch, Diaz, Jota, Salah
Everton XI: Pickford, Young, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Mykolenko, Harrison, Garner, Onana, McNeil, Doucoure, Calvert-Lewin
It will be a typical derby with high-intensity tackles and lots of energy, but Liverpool will win. Liverpool to win 2-1.
