Everton vs Liverpool Prediction & Betting tips
The Premier League resumes with a great poster: leader Everton is visited by champions Liverpool. It is exactly ten years ago on Saturday afternoon since Everton last won against Liverpool. Given its current form, it is not impossible that after no less than 22 Merseyside Derby’s, Everton will finally win another victory over the great rival.
Who is stopping this Everton? It is a question that currently occupies many Toffees. A few on the blue side of the city of Liverpool secretly dream of a Leicester City-like scenario in which Everton becomes champion against all odds. The chance that this will happen is not that great, but in the first four league games, Carlo Ancelotti and his men have shown that Everton is a difficult pig to wash. Everton took twelve points in the first four games and this promises something for the rest of the season for The Toffees.
The two players at stake at Everton right now are Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the reborn James Rodríguez. Everything Calvert-Lewin touches turns to gold and the Colombian Rodríguez turns out to be the absolute architect of this Everton. The only problem Everton has compared to all other top clubs is that it is actually too dependent on the base team. With many injuries and possible suspensions, it is also possible that Ancelotti’s team collapses like a house of cards. For the time being that is not yet the case and the duel with Liverpool will be the second real test case for Everton, which also booked a good result in the first round of play when visiting Tottenham Hotspur (0-1). All Everton supporters have been yearning for a win in the Merseyside Derby for years and if The Toffees ever want to beat their fellow citizens again, it must be Saturday afternoon, ten years to the day after Everton’s last Merseyside Derby victory.
Estimated Everton Lineup :: Pickford – Coleman, Keane, Godfrey, Digne – Gomes, Allan, Doucouré – Rodríguez, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison
Everton injuries: Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Mason Holgate, Jonjoe Kenny, Jarrad Branthwaite, Cenk Tosun
The highest English division has only been underway for four rounds, but it does indicate that Liverpool is currently in the rankings under Everton. It is not all going the way Jürgen Klopp wants it at Liverpool. Liverpool managed to win the Premier League by a street-length in the previous football season, but this season The Reds will have a bit more trouble. Not only because competition from Liverpool has become stronger, but also because The Reds themselves are less convincing. The fact that Liverpool lost 7-2 to Aston Villa in the weekend before the international break, actually indicates enough: Klopp’s team is not as unbeatable as last season.
The punishment at Villa Park still hurts The Reds and it is hoped for Liverpool that it will turn out a lot better against Everton on Saturday afternoon. Liverpool have been unbeaten for 22 games against Everton, but the champions will not confidently pass the intermediate and well-known Stanley Park on their way to Everton. In its current form, it is certainly not inconceivable that Liverpool will lose at Goodison Park for the first time since 2010. At the time, former Spanish Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina had to concede two goals and The Reds did not score themselves. On Saturday afternoon there is again a Spaniard under the bar at Liverpool, because Alisson Becker is still out for the time being and that means that the doubtful Adrián is on target at Liverpool after the international break.
Probable line-up Liverpool: Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson – Henderson, Thiago, Wijnaldum – Salah, Firmino, Mané
Liverpool injuries: Konstantinos Tsimikas, Alisson Becker, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keïta (corona)
