The Merseyside rivals resume their Premier League campaign after the coronavirus break. Here's how to watch Sunday's game for FREE in the UK
The Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool takes place on Sunday, 21 June, at Goodison Park. Kickoff is at 7pm and the game will be broadcast free on the new free-to-view channel Sky Pick and Sky Sports from 6:30pm onwards in the UK. Alternatively, you can also watch the game with a Now TV Sky Sports Pass. Both services have huge discounts at the moment.
Premier League leaders Liverpool have a massive 22-point lead over Man City in second place and they are only two wins away from winning their first Premier League title in three decades. Everton, meanwhile, have not won a Merseyside derby in almost 10 years. In twelfth place, the Toffees will be hoping to prolong the celebrations of their next-door rivals for as long as they can.
The game was originally supposed to be played in March but was called off because of the coronavirus outbreak that has since affected most of the world. Before the Premier League was suspended, Liverpool seemed to be faltering for the first time this season as they got knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League. All football matches going forward are now being played behind closed doors, but fans are not complaining because they’ve been devoid of live football coverage for over three months.
The Merseyside derby is the longest-running top-flight derby in England, having been played continuously since the 1962-63 season. It’s also one of the most heated rivalries in English football, which is evident by from fact that no other Premier League fixture has produced more red cards during the modern era. This animosity partly stems from the fact that both teams’ home grounds – Anfield and Goodison Park – are within walking distance of each other.

All of the aforementioned streaming services – including Sky Sports, DAZN Canada and Optus Sport Australia – are geoblocked, meaning you won’t be able to watch or live stream Everton vs Liverpool if you’re away from the country unless you use a good VPN service.
We don’t only recommend using one for streaming content that’s geo-blocked in your country. In fact, we think that everyone should use a good VPN service to protect their browsing data from everyone, including their ISPs. A good VPN service is an absolute must-have, especially if you travel a lot because public Wi-Fi networks are more vulnerable to hacks and attacks.
