Liverpool v Everton Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews
November 28, 2018
Anfield - Premier League
Liverpool host Everton at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, in the final instalment of the Premier League’s derby day triple-header. The Reds are still unbeaten after 13 games of the season, while the Blues have been on a decent run of late.
Everton have failed to win any of the last 17 Merseyside derbies in all competitions, a run that stretches back to 2010. However, more than half of those games have ended in a draw, including both of the league meetings between the sides last season.
Jurgen Klopp will be without Jordan Henderson for this game, after the midfielder received his marching orders at Watford on Saturday. Fringe players Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi are both injury doubts, which Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are out.
Marco Silva could soon have James McCarthy back after his horrific leg break, but the Toffees boss is unlikely to throw him straight back into the action in a game like this. Jonjoe Kenny is the only other injury worry for the visiting boss.
Liverpool v Everton Preview and Predictions
It’s been a long time since Everton have prevailed in the Merseyside derby, but there’s extra motivation for the Toffees this season - ending Liverpool’s unbeaten run. The Reds are in excellent form though, and have only dropped points against Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal so far this season.
The Reds are just two points behind City, but they can’t afford many slip ups if they’re going to mount a serious title challenge against Pep Guardiola’s rampant side. Liverpool’s tough game away at PSG in the Champions League on Wednesday night could have a bearing on this game, but the home team are heavy favourites at 2/5.
Everton are 17/2 for the win, although the draw at 4/1 would seem the likelier result if the visitors are going to upset the odds. It looks as though Marco Silva is slowly getting his ideas across in the Everton dugout, with the Blues only dropping points against Manchester United and Chelsea in their last six matches.
However, the Toffees toiled for long periods against a struggling Cardiff side at the weekend, and they are searching for consistency. A win across the way on the other side of Stanley Park would be a decent place for them to start showing some.
Liverpool to win and BTTS
In players like Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, Everton carry a decent goal threat. Liverpool are the favourites though and have the attacking power to win this game.
Mo Salah to score first at 31/10
The Egyptian forward has reached top form in recent weeks after a somewhat slow start to the season, and he scored a wonderful goal in this fixture last season.
