There's an unusually large gap between the two Liverpool teams heading into tonight's Merseyside derby with an even stranger feeling given that Everton boss Rafa Benitez is at least partly responsible. Everton will be looking for their first win since September. That's not an easy task against a red machine with just one loss all season. Make sure you know how to watch an Everton vs Liverpool live stream wherever you are.

UK Amazon Prime subscribers can watch 20 games – including Everton vs Liverpool – free on Prime Video (Not a member? Use this 30-day free trial). And don't forget to use a VPN if you're stuck outside the UK this week.

The teams news is in and Richarlison is back in the Everton line-up after his suspension. He joins Gray, Rondon and Andros Townsend. Liverpool go with Jota, Mane and Salah in attack. Fabinho, Henderson and Thiago look an equally imposing midfield.

Ex-Liverpool manager Benitez looked an excellent choice to restore some pride to the blue half of the city but a conveyor belt of key injuries has led an uncomfortable run of form. Will he and his players turn it on for the visit of their city rivals?

They'll have to do it without long-term absentees Yerry Mina, Tom Davies and Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Richarlison is available again after suspension while the game has come a little too early for Andre Gomes's recovery.

Roberto Firmino's injury still keeps the Liverpool striker out of action. He remains on the sidelines along with Joe Gomez, Naby Keita and Curtis Jones. 

The game may hold some significance for captain Virgil van Dijk whose last-season long-term injury came in this fixture last year. Expect to see a little extra spring in his heels when he heads up the pitch for corners.

The match kicks off at 8.15pm GMT today, Wednesday 1st December, at Goodison Park. Follow our guide on how to watch an Everton vs Liverpool live stream online, on TV and on your smartphone, from wherever you are in the world.

Watch an Everton vs Liverpool live stream from abroad using a VPN

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Everton vs Liverpool live stream rights holders, you won't be able to access them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. VPNs are a doddle to use and create a private connection between your device and the internet. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN which offers a 100 per cent risk-free money back guarantee. If you're not happy with the service any time within the first 30 days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

3. Then head over to Amazon Prime on your browser or device and enjoy the Everton vs Liverpool live stream.

If, for whatever reason, you can't get it working, then do remember that you have the comfort of a 30-day money back guarantee with ExpressVPN. You could also try NordVPN, which also comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, and Surfshark which offers 24 hour assistance.

When can you watch Match of the Day online and on iPlayer?

Match Of The Day has been shown live on TV on Saturday evening (almost) since time began, and is now joined by Match Of The Day 2 on Sundays. But what about watching Premier League highlights online?

Match Of The Day is available through BBC iPlayer, but there are a few stipulations.

The show won't be available straight after the programme finishes its live broadcast. Weekend editions of Match Of The Day will be online from midnight on Monday (in practice, the early hours of Tuesday morning), while midweek episodes will be on iPlayer from midnight the day after it's broadcast.

You can download Match Of The Day for offline viewing, but it is time-sensitive and will disappear as soon as the programme leaves iPlayer.

Match Of The Day can also be streamed live at the time of broadcast via the BBC iPlayer website.
