Everton vs Liverpool: prediction for the EPL fixture
Last season, Everton won the Merseyside derby, and the second match between the Toffees and the Reds ended in a draw. This year, however, we are not convinced that Everton will be able to put up a fight.
The Toffees were knocked out of the League Cup by QPR, which was quite embarassing. The Premier League campaign is nothing to write home about either: in the last six games, Rafael Benitez's men earned only one point, having tied with Tottenham (0:0). The latest results of Everton are two defeats to Man City (0:3) and Brentford (0:1).
Mina, Holgate, Calvert-Lewin, Davies, and Gomesare unavailable for Everton today.
On the other hand,Liverpool are one of the main contenders for the Premier League trophy. After 13 rounds, the Reds are 3rd in the standings with 28 points from eight victories and four draws. The team has the best attack in the league, having scored 39 goals. The top scorer in the Premier League is Salah with 11 goals.
Jurgen Klopp's charges crushed Arsenal and Southampton in the last two fixtures with the same score of 4:0.
The Reds are enjoying success in the Champions League, too. With maximum points from five games, they are top of the group. Last week, Liverpool cruised to victory against Porto (2:0).
Liverpool will be without Firmino, Elliott, Keita, Jones, and Gomez.
Liverpool won 4 out of 5 away games.
This bet played in 2 of Liverpool's last 4 games.
In 2 of the last 3 head-to-head games, goal were scored in both halves.
In 3 out of 5 games of the hosts, this bet played.
We saw many surprising results in the Merseyside derby in recent years, but we believe that today the Toffees won't be able to upset Liverpool. The hosts haven't won since September, and the quality of their football is questionable at best. We predict a confident victory for the Reds.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to Liverpool
