“Looking back at the season as a whole, that was the day the Things went wrong as the entire campaign broke up a few weeks later.

“Liverpool’s players and fans will not forget what happened that day at Goodison and Everton added salt to those wounds by adding salt later in the season ended their long wait for an Anfield win.

“The fans are back now and the presence of Rafael Benitez in the Everton dugout adds to the history of this game.

” There were many Everton supporters, who didn’t want ex-Liverpool coach Benitez to be responsible for their club and the poor form they’ve been in over the past few weeks has added to dissatisfaction with Rafa. “

Aldridge suspects Benitez will struggle , Evert on fans after his long association with Liverpool was highlighted by his success in leading the club to glory in the 2005 Champions League final.

“The last thing Rafa needs right now is a Game against a Liverpool player in fiery attack form and Jürgen Klopp’s men will want to add to Benitez’s misery, “added Aldridge.

” I see the bookies have installed Rafa as a new favorite to be the next coach who will be sacked in the Premier League after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was finally lifted from his misery at Manchester United.
