liverpool v everton gerrard

BT Sport subscribers can look forward to a Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton this Saturday September 27th.

The local rivals - separated only by Liverpool's Stanley Park - are set to lock horns at Anfield in the lunchtime game, which kicks off at 12:45pm.

Both sides have had a disappointing start to the season, with Liverpool winning two and losing three of their first five games, and Everton claiming only one league victory so far.

Neither the Reds nor the Toffees enjoyed their last Barclays Premier League outing - with Liverpool beaten 3-1 at West Ham and Everton losing 3-2 at home to Crystal Palace.

As such, both Brendan Rodgers and Roberto Martinez will be desperate for three points in Saturday's game.

Rodgers led Liverpool to second place last season, with the club losing out narrowly to Manchester City in the title race.

However, the loss of Luis Suarez has hit the Reds hard, and an injury to England striker Daniel Sturridge has only compounded the misery.

Everton have looked decent in patches this season, but struggled to build any momentum.

A 4-1 win against VfL Wolfsburg in the Europa League - on the back of a 2-0 away victory at West Brom - had raised spirits at Goodison Park.

But last weekend's defeat to Crystal Palace is a major setback for the Toffees, who find themselves on just five points after the same number of games.

There's plenty more football action to look forward to on BT Sport this weekend, starting with Mainz v Hoffenheim from the Bundesliga at 7:30pm on Friday September 26th.

Saturday's games on BT Sport include Wolfsburg v Werder Bremen - also from Germany - at 5:30pm, Toronto FC v Portland Timbers from the MLS at 6pm and Atalanta v Juventus from Italy's Serie A at 7:45pm.

On Sunday, the BT Sport highlights are Augsburg v Hertha Berlin (2:30pm) and Hamburg v Eintracht Frankfurt (4:30pm) from the Bundesliga, Nantes v Lyon (4pm) and Marseille v St Etienne (8pm) from France's Ligue 1, and Genoa v Sampdoria (7:45pm) from Serie A.
