Liverpool have proven to be ahead of the curve in recent years, with such forward-thinking football operations eventually helping to deliver Premier League and Champions League titles to Anfield.

The Reds have a modern structure in place off the pitch with an established interest in data, and Jürgen Klopp has transformed the team's playing style to represent a very contemporary brand of attacking football.

Benitez will undoubtedly make Everton functional, but their early transfer moves under him highlight just how much ground they need to make before they even come close to catching their age-old neighbours.

It is more than can be said for many clubs in the Premier League, with Everton, in particular, playing catch-up with their Merseyside rivals after appointing Rafa Benitez recently, more than a decade after he took charge of Liverpool in June 2004.

This was very fashionable throughout the Premier League for 20 years.

It remains to be seen what Benitez will achieve with the Blues, but the early signs hint towards a crossing approach for capable aerial forwards, which hasn't been applied by Liverpool since 2012 at the very latest.

Everton appear to be targeting traditional wingers, with Townsend and McNeil representing the old-school wide game of darting down the touchline before hitting crosses into the penalty box.
