The 227th Merseyside derby tonight will be both managers first Merseyside derby at Goodison Park.
Last season's derby at Goodison was Brendan Rodgers last game in charge for the reds so Klopp manages the reds for the first time at Everton's home.
He was of course in charge for last seasons home game - the reds ran out easy 4-0 winners.
Everton start the day in 9th - a win can take them to 7th. The reds start the day in 3rd, a win can take us clear into 2nd place by a point and cut the sizeable gap that Chelsea have at the top down to 6 points.
Everton at home and Liverpool away this season
- The blues are unbeaten at home this season under new boss Ronald Koeman - with 4 wins and 4 draws. Scoring 6 times and conceding 12.
- Away from home Liverpool have won 5, drawn 2 and also lost 2 - scoring 19 goals but conceding 14 too.
As it happened...
Everton have won just once in the last 19 league meetings - their last win coming in October 2010.
Ronald Koeman highlighted this ahead of the game.
"The derby is all about the fans, we understand that but we need to be calm and prepare for the game in the way we like.
"It's about preparing the team. You have an emotional part that you need to control. That's the most important.
"Our recent record is not good. One derby win out of 19. We need to accept how difficult it is, win the game and make the fans happy."
Origi has been on fire for the reds since he came back into the side - taking advantage of firstly an injury to Adam Lallana, and latterly ahead of the injured Coutinho and Sturridge.
He has scored a goal in each of his last 5 games. Adam Lallana too has continued his fine form after recovering from injury.
Everton's Romelu Lukaku however has 5 goals in his last 8 games against LFC.
Joel Matip looks set to miss out according to the Liverpool Echo - the centre-back hasn't recovered in time from an ankle injury and won't be risked they say.
Starting for the reds tonight
Clyne, Lovren, Klavan, Milner
Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana
Firmino, Mane, Origi
Subs: Karius, Moreno, Lucas, Can, Alexander-Arnold, Woodburn, Sturridge
Before the start of the season there was very little mention of Liverpool as potential title challengers - but a win tonight would put the reds as the closest competitors to current runaway leaders Chelsea this Christmas.

Ian Rush holds the record for LFC appearances in a Merseyside derby (36). He also scored the most goals of any player - 25.
Former Everton keeper Neville Southall played the most times in the fixture - 41 appearances. Never scored though so...
Here's how Everton line up.
Kick off in 15 minutes.
We are underway at Goodison Park.
Everton looking to get Lukaku involved at every opportunity so far. Lots of work for Lovren to do at the back.
10' Bit of a defensive mix up there by Liverpool - a poor backpass and a poor kick out by Mignolet. The reds get away with it though.
Everton win a free kick after a foul by Firmino on Valencia. Just outside the box....
.. but Everton fire it at the wall. Liverpool regain possession.
The Liverpool boss does not look happy with the opening 14 minutes and is roaring at his players from the touchline.
Mane gets a shot away but it's curled high and wide of the goal.
25 minutes gone. Not been vintage by Liverpool.
Everton looking hungrier and the reds making poor choices. Clyne sends a forward ball but it goes to nobody.
Liverpool free kick but as Milner sends the ball in to the area the referee Mike Dean blows the whistle for a foul in the box. Not sure who was supposed to be the culprit - seemed soft.
Best chance of the game so far - good build up by Liverpool. Wijnaldum finds Firmino inside the area - he squares the ball to Origi who fires wide.
37 minutes gone. 0-0.
3 minutes left of the half and Everton get the first corner of the game...
Fumes Mori heads it down and wide - thankfully.
Almost half time.
1 minute of injury time to be played. LFC have a free kick....
Stekelenberg punches the reds free kick away. No shots on target in this first half for either team.
Underway - here we go again. 0-0.
Gareth Barry replaces James McCarthy because of an injury.
Dejan Lovren collects a yellow card for a foul on Romelu Lukaku in the 55th minute. Everton player would have had a clear run at goal.
Stekelenburg in Everton's goal took a heavy dead leg - some questions about whether he can continue.
Everton could be forced into a substitute change - Joel Robles is preparing to come on.
Some huge time-wasting already from Everton. Stekelenburg eventually hobbles off after a few minutes of will-he, wont-he.
Joel Robles replaces him. Second Everton substitution. There will be plenty of added time here at Goodison.
Bad challenge by Barkley on Henderson. He picks up a yellow card - should have been a straight red card.
Calvert-Lewin replaces Enner Valenica in the 71st minute. 0-0 still.
Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge look like they are going to get the last 10 minutes of this game.
80 mins 0-0
A rare moment of excitement as Firmino smashes a shot that forces Everton's sub keeper into a save.
81 mins 0-0
Everton's Gueye gets a yellow card for a foul on Sadio Mane.
90 mins 0-0
There will be 8 minutes of added time at the end of this game. A goal looks unlikely from either side but you never know.
1-0 to LFC
Daniel Sturridge fired a shot at the post and Mane was first at the rebound.
Wonderful ending to this game.
Everton 0-1 Liverpool
Liverpool left it very late - the 4th minute of added time but the reds were the better side.
Sadio Mane with the winning goal to put Liverpool into 2nd place.
Henderson summarises the result in the post match interview:
'There's no better place to win away from home. We deserved to win.'
Sadio Mane's late goal helps Liverpool into 2nd place for Christmas.
