What could be a more appetising FA Cup third round fixture than a good old Merseyside derby. There was a frisson of excitement was tangible when the two rivals were pulled out of the hat to meet in a New Year showdown and now is finally the time to live stream Liverpool vs Everton - no matter where in the world you are.

On paper, of course, Liverpool are overwhelming favourites to progress in the cup competition today. Jürgen Klopp has made a fortress of Anfield, with the Reds not losing in the Premier League at home since April 2017!

Liverpool vs Everton - where and when

This third round FA Cup showdown will take place at place at the famous Anfield - home of Liverpool football club. 

The game itself kicks off at 4.01pm GMT (11am ET or 8am PT in the US, and 3am AEDT in Australia on Monday morning).

Thanks to goals from Mané, Salah, Firmino and co, and the defensive prowess of officially the world's second best player Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool have what looks like an unassailable lead in the league and will be looking to see how many trophies they can notch up this season.

But since they spanked their cross-town foes 5-2 last month, Everton have experienced something of a new manager bounce. Carlo Ancelotti has dragged the Toffees from flirting with relegation to a more respectable 11th in the table. And as the old saying goes...anything can happen in the FA Cup!
