Liverpool vs Everton Preview
Both the Reds and the Toffees have been patchy this season, and both will be desperate to reclaim their form in time for this clash. The two teams have recently been inconsistent but, as fans always say, “form goes out the window on derby day”, and we can expect a feisty display from both sides.
It’s likely both sides will score, although Everton haven’t beaten Liverpool since October 2010; Can Carlo Ancelotti’s men finally bring victory for the Blue side of Liverpool?

Liverpool vs Everton betting tips
Odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.
Correct score – 2:1
Liverpool achieved an impressive victory over RB Leipzig on Tuesday night, while Everton put in an inconsistent display against Manchester City on Wednesday evening. With both sides in decent form in front of goal, there are sure to be goals in this encounter but we think that the Reds will edge out their city rivals for the victory; odds of 27/4 are promising.
First goalscorer – Sadio Mane
Following a short-term injury, Mane has only been back for three games after missing two games with a knock. The Senagalese playmaker scored in their Champions League win in midweek giving him renewed confidence; odds of him scoring first in the derby are a solid 9/2.
Liverpool team news
Following their win against an in-form RB Leipzig, Liverpool will be chomping at the bit to face their old rivals. Klopp’s men have been crippled by injury, with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez all out long-term. Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones and Georginio Wijnaldum should be in midfield with Jordan Henderson in central defence once again.
Predicted line-up: 4-1-4-1: Alisson, Robertson, Kabak, Henderson, Alexander-Arnold; Thiago, Jones, Wijnaldum, Salah, Mane, Firmino.
Everton team news
No one was surprised to see the Toffees lose to Manchester City on Wednesday, but their energy will undoubtedly be renewed as they get set to face their old foes. Ancelotti will be pleased to have Dominic Calvert-Lewin back and fighting fit after a short absence, although it looks unlikely that Fabian Delph will return.
Predicted line-up: 4-2-3-1: Pickford, Digne, Godfrey, Keane, Holgate; Doucoure, Sigurdsson, Allan; Richarlison, Rodriguez, Calvert-Lewin
