The Merseyside derby is always one of the biggest Premier League matches on the English football calendar, and today is no different after everything that has happened to Everton and Liverpool this season.

In previous years, many of the Merseyside derbies I’ve watched are clouded in fog, literally. I seem to remember that many of them in the 70s and 80s were played on foggy days. So hopefully the weather will shine kindly for the Blues and Reds of Merseyside this Sunday morning.

Of course the Merseyside derby isn’t the only game played today. Blackpool plays Manchester City later in what will certainly be a clash between David and Goliath.

Feel free to post your rants, comments, observations or questions about today’s matches in the comments section below.
