Anfield, Liverpool, United Kingdom.
Wednesday 4th December.
Kick-off: 20:15 (UK).
English Premier League.
TV: Amazon Prime (UK).
The first Merseyside derby of the season has arrived as Liverpool are at home to Everton in the most important midweek match.
Liverpool just keep on winning, and what’s worrying for their rivals is that they are not at their best but are still getting the necessary results. They are eight ahead of second-placed Leicester and 11 of Manchester City. Is the Premier League title already a foregone conclusion? Liverpool are currently at 1/4 to win the Premier League this season.
Their Merseyside rivals Everton have had a miserable start to the season as they hover just above the relegation zone. Reports suggest that Marco Silva will be sacked after the Chelsea game at the weekend to give the new manager an easier start to his fixtures unless of course, Everton win against Liverpool. You can get odds of 15/2 for a shock Everton win. Everton have a poor record against Liverpool, their previous win at Anfield coming in 1999 and the last overall victory was in 2010.
Everton couldn’t register a win at Anfield when they had a more successful team, and when Liverpool were weak. This is Liverpool’s strongest team since the glory days of the 70s and 80s, and there is very little evidence to suggest that Everton will end this rotten record against their local rivals. On the bright side, Liverpool haven’t kept a clean sheet since September, and they will be without Alisson Becker and Joël Matip for the derby. Can Everton take advantage of Liverpool’s defensive struggles and get a goal? They are at odds of 11/5 to get the first goal in this game. Everton successfully stifled Liverpool in both of the previous season’s fixtures, only conceding a bizarre 96th-minute Divock Origi goal in the same match last season. You can get odds of 17/10 for Liverpool to get under 1.5 goals at Anfield.
Liverpool: Fabinho, Joël Matip and Alisson Becker (suspension).
Everton: Bernard and Andre Gomes.
With Liverpool missing key defensive players and struggling to keep clean sheets, we’re tipping a Liverpool win and both teams to score at odds of 13/8.
