Everton vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
A busy week in the Premier League ends with a beautiful poster: Everton will play Goodison Park against Liverpool on Sunday. Everton wants to win this Merseyside Derby, if only because of this, Liverpool will put a foot in the title battle.
Everton has been humbled for years by the big brother from the city. Liverpool has become a European top club and Everton is nothing more than a sub topper from the Premier League. The more beautiful it is for The Toffees that they can influence the title battle in the Premier League on Sunday. For the Everton supporters, it may be even more important that their club wins Liverpool this weekend than their club finishes the season seventh. At first, that was of course the goal of Marco Silva’s team. The Portuguese was under pressure at Everton in recent weeks and due to the many losses of The Toffees they do not have to talk about seventh place at Everton.
In the run-up to this Merseyside Derby, Everton has given confidence by winning 0-3 at Cardiff City on Tuesday. The three games before were lost for The Toffees but in Wales Everton had no problem with Cardiff. The first two goals in the Cardiff City Stadium in the name of the Icelandic Gylfi Sigurðsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin were the final score in the final phase at 0-3. Everton, who lost 1-0 at Liverpool earlier this season, has not won eighteen games of the big rival and The Toffees really have a good day if they want to keep the three points at Goodison Park.
For Liverpool, this game is a lot less special than for Everton. Where The Toffees live for a match with Liverpool, the Liverpool supporters find it just as important what their team performs against Manchester United. In fact, Liverpool fans may find it more important that their team of rival Manchester United wins than fellow cityman Everton. Last weekend, Liverpool played scorelessly right at Manchester United and for The Reds this weekend is immediately another difficult game on the program. Nevertheless, the formation of Jürgen Klopp will draw a lot of confidence from the recent Liverpool results against Everton and from the fact that The Reds have a better player at every position.
Just like Everton, Liverpool also had a good general in the run-up to the city quarrel. The Reds got a visit from the well-performing Watford this week. In practice, Watford proved to be too small for the Klopp team, which won 5-0 at Anfield. Among other things, a beautiful heel from Sadio Mané and two head goals from Virgil van Dijk made The Reds the 21st competition victory of the season. Manchester City came into action on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League and at Liverpool they know what to do at Goodison Park. One advantage Klopps men have is that they have no Champions League commitments next week and that’s why The Reds were able to fully focus on this Merseyside Derby in the past few days. A derby that has not lost Liverpool eighteen consecutive matches. The last time that The Reds stepped off the field as a loser was in 2010.
