Liverpool host Everton in the Merseyside Derby of the English Premier League with both teams looking to ensure they finish above the other at the end of the season.
Everton are currently five points clear of their rivals with three games remaining, and a win will ensure they finish above Liverpool for the second straight season.
"It's very important to finish as high as we possibly can," Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. "Traditionally, over many years Liverpool have been the top team here in the city, there's no question about that.
"Last year Everton finished above ourselves, but for us this year it's really about finishing as high as we possibly can. We've got three games left and want to win every one -- and we want to win the next game, which is the most important one.
"It'll be tough because they're a good side and David has done a brilliant job there with the group. They've had another very good season but we're coming into the game with real confidence.
"Our performance last week (at Newcastle) was outstanding and the team is full of confidence at the moment, both in our attacking and in our defending -- but we understand it'll be a tough match."
Everton haven't won at Anfield since 1999, but Rodgers does not believe that record will matter too much come Sunday.
"I never read too much into that sort of stuff," he said. "When we went to Wigan this year, the team hadn't won there for a number of years but we played very well and won the game.
"We're at home and we expect to win our games at home. We know it's going to be a very tough game. Everton are well organised and they are a good side, but we'll be ready for the weekend."
Liverpool will be without Luis Suarez, who is suspended, while Steven Gerrard is expected to feature after he was taken off against Newcastle due to a shoulder problem.
Everton manager David Moyes expects Darron Gibson to be fit, after the midfielder missed the 1-0 win over Fulham, but Phil Neville is ruled out.
Expected lineups: Liverpool: Reina; Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Enrique; Gerrard, Lucas, Henderson; Downing, Sturridge, Coutinho.
Everton: Howard; Coleman, Jagielka, Distin, Baines; Gibson, Osman; Mirallas, Fellaini, Pienaar; Anichebe.
Prediction: 3-2 to Liverpool
