Indeed, since the 1992/93 season, no fixture between any two Premier League clubs has resulted in as many red cards as the Merseyside derby (23).
Always hotly contested, with those precious bragging rights on the line, tackles tend to fly whenever the Toffees and the Reds face off, whether at Anfield or Goodison Park.
At total of 20 different players have accounted for those 22 reds cards – two men have been sent off twice.
With the first Merseyside derby of the season set to take place at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, we’re putting your knowledge of the fixture’s darker side to the test.
Can you name all 20 players to see red in a Premier League Merseyside derby?
