Everton signed former Liverpool goalkeeper Andy Lonergan over the summer and will come face to face with their former employers this week.
Liverpool makes the short trip through Stanley Park Wednesday night to face their former rivals Everton.
Over the summer, Lonergan joined an exclusive group of players who played for both Merseyside clubs during the Premier League era.
The 38-year-old failed to make a senior appearance for Liverpool during his short stay at the club. But the former West Brom star was on the bench for the Reds’ UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup successes in the 2019/20 campaign.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also presented him with a Premier League winner’s medal after the 2019/20 season, although he is not eligible for one.
Toffees boss Rafael Benitez, who managed the Reds, rushed for Lonergan as a replacement for Jordan Pickford and new signing Asmir Begovic.
He has yet to play for Everton but has been part of their squad in recent weeks.
So who are the other five players who made the decision to feature at both Anfield and Goodison Park during the Premier League era? talkSPORT.com takes a look.
Nick barmby – Everton (1996-2000), Liverpool (2000-02)
The former England winger made headlines when he joined Everton for a record £ 5.75million from Middlesbrough in 1996.
Still, Barmby became a bigger story four years after he came to the Toffees when he was sold to his neighbors Liverpool.
It was the first time since forward Dave Hickson in 1959 that Everton had sold a player to his rivals.
Barmby spent two years at Anfield starting at the turn of the century when he was part of the Liverpool squad that won the League Cup, FA Cup and UEFA Cup in 2001.
David burrows – Liverpool (1988-1993), Everton (1994-95)
The last of five years for the former left-back at Anfield came in the Premier League’s inaugural season 29 years ago.
Burrows then had a short stay at West Ham sandwiched between his stint at Liverpool’s two biggest clubs.
He only spent six months at Everton, making 23 appearances before joining Coventry.
However, the former England Under-21 international was featured in the early stages of the Toffees’ historic 1994-95 FA Cup campaign.
Don hutchison – Liverpool (1990-94), Everton (1998-2000)
The retired midfielder played under fellow Scots Kenny Dalglish and Graeme Souness for four years at Anfield.
Yet Hutchison not only later played for Everton, he was also captain of the Blues at one point when Dave Watson was on the side.
A dispute over his contract meant the England-born star ultimately left to sign for Sunderland as he also enjoyed two stints at West Ham.
Sander Westerveld – Liverpool (1999-2001), Everton (2006)
The Dutchman was initially the only goalkeeper on this list before Lonergan’s recent move to Everton.
Westerveld went from hero to zero at Anfield in the late ’90s, where he conceded the fewest Premier League goals in his first term.
However, he was later dropped after several high-profile mistakes – including a red card on his Merseyside derby debut.
But that didn’t stop Everton boss David Moyes from signing Westerveld on an emergency loan for two appearances amid an injury crisis in 2006.
Abel Xavier – Everton (1999-2002), Liverpool (2002-03)
The former Portugal full-back was the most recent member of the infamous club before Lonergan’s decision to ‘walk through the park’.
Xavier also has the unique statistic of being the only player in history to have played for both Merseyside teams in the derby in the same season!
He scored on his Liverpool debut against Ipswich Town before bouncing around Galatasaray, Roma and Middlesbrough.
Xavier ended his MLS LA Galaxy career alongside David Beckham before turning to management.
