'What channel is Everton v Liverpool on?" is the question on the mind of many a football fan todey ahead of the big Merseyside derby later.

Everton v Liverpool was supposed to be the game that saw the Reds crowned as champions for the first time in 30 years. However, after Manchester City's win over Arsenal on Wednesday, Liverpool fans will have to wait just a little bit longer to see Jordan Henderson wrap his hands around the trophy.

All Carlo Ancelotti's Toffees can do is try and prolong their Merseyside rivals' wait a little longer but if Jurgen Klopp's all-conquering Liverpool side win tonight, their much-awaited 'match-point' will arrive on Wednesday at home to Crystal Palace. Here's everything you need to know about tonight's game...

What channel is Everton v Liverpool on?

The game will be shown on Sky One, Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.

What's on the line?

Quite simply, if Liverpool win they will need just one more victory to clinch the Premier League title. For their part, Everton have a very slim chance of getting into Europe but stopping their rivals winning the league on their ground should be enough motivation.

Any team news?

Unsurprisingly, after a three-month break, both clubs should have full squads to choose from. A new rule has been added in the Premier League, allowing teams to name nine players on the bench, from which five substitutions can come on during the course of the game.

What's the story with the fake crowd noise?

With Premier League games being played behind closed doors, TV stations are adding their own crowd noise. There are mixed opinions on this but it seems that most people are in favour of it. If you're one of them, you can get your crowd noise fix on Sky Sports Main Event. If you're not, flick over the Sky Sports Premier League where you'll be able to hear everything that's being shouted from the touchline as well as any pins that may drop throughout the match.
