On the weekend, the boys in blue came away from Goodison Park with another three points in their back pocket after a dominating 2-0 victory over Hull City. Unfortunately the victory came at a cost with midfielder Marouane Fellani receiving his tenth yellow card of the season banning him for the next two matches. This is made a doubly important development as the Toffees will be playing the reds from across Stanley Park in the next double at Anfield. Everton do have the advantage of going into this derby doubleheader with a bit of steam on a six game unbeaten streak, lets just hope that good form proves the decisive factor in what will no doubt be a difficult two weeks for both sides of Liverpool.
In the other major EPL matches, Man U saw off title contenders Chelsea by an easy scoreline of 3-0 at Old Trafford. The red side of Liverpool suffered a bit of a setback to their title hopes with a goalless draw at Britannia Stadium versus Stoke City. Finally, outliers to the title Arsenal pulled off a close 1-0 win over Bolton at the Emirates to keep their hopes barely alive.
