It is understood that an independent commission began investigations on Tuesday. Moreover, the club and the League are making submissions on their behalf, behind closed doors. Moreover, it is likely that there will be a conclusion to the same sometime next week. Additionally, the League will announce penalties and/or sanctions if any, as guided by the commission.

The commission is likely to announce its verdict in the following month. Everton were booked by the League on grounds that the club reported losses amounting to over £372 million. The exciting limit in the League is £105 million. However, the club has denied any wrongdoing on their part. The club argues that it received allowances from the League in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Liverpool are on the back of a disappointing draw against Everton, while the Toffees are coming off a much-needed win against Bournemouth. Everton will go into the tie as underdogs, but the possible unavailability of Darwin Nunez offers relief. The Uruguayan striker ended the game against Brazil with a cramp.

Meanwhile, Andy Robertson is a definite no-go for the Reds after sustaining a shoulder dislocation against Spain last week. Cody Gakpo is also doubtful as he makes a return from injury. Curtis Jones remains suspended after picking up a 3-match-ban for a red card against Tottenham, and so is Diogo Jota. But Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to win it as the game ended 2-0 in favor of Liverpool when the two sides met back in February.
