Liverpool vs Everton betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Liverpool vs Everton prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Everton

Marco Silva’s time as Everton manager appears to be all but over. Defeat on Wednesday night would surely be the final nail in his coffin.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 45 Premier League matches at Anfield. Everton have lost five of their last six league matches on the road.

There’s been just one goal scored in the last three Merseyside derbies combined, but a comfortable Liverpool victory is expected this time around.

Liverpool vs Everton: Who will win?

Everton have failed to win any of their last 22 matches at Anfield in all competitions. Liverpool are 4/11 favourites to win the match while Everton are 15/2 outsiders. The draw is priced at 4/1.

Remarkably, the Reds are yet to keep a Premier League clean sheet at Anfield this season. Back both teams to score at 4/5.

Sadio Mane has two previous Merseyside derby goals. Mane is 15/4 to open the scoring and 20/21 to score anytime.

Liverpool host the 55th Premier League Merseyside derby – and the 234th overall – at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Liverpool maintain an eight-point lead at the top of the Premier League following their 2-1 win at home to Brighton on Saturday. Virgil van Dijk scored twice in the first half. A clever free-kick from Lewis Dunk halved the deficit against 10-man Liverpool but the Reds hung on for all three points.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have a 100% home record, winning all seven of their league matches at Anfield. Worryingly, Liverpool’s last clean sheet at Anfield in any competition was in May.

Everton were cruelly beaten 2-1 at Leicester on Sunday, a second consecutive defeat for the Toffees. Richarlison’s opener was cancelled out by Jamie Vardy’s equaliser before Kelechi Iheanacho broke Everton hearts with a 96th-minute winner.

With just one win in seven, no side has picked up fewer points (4) on the road this season than Everton.

On Monday, Virgil van Dijk placed 2nd at the Balon d’Or awards ceremony, losing out to Lionel Messi. Sadio Mane finished 4th in the final standings. Mohamed Salah, Alisson, Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Gini Wijnaldum were also nominated for the prestigious award.

Liverpool have won 23 of their 54 Premier League meetings against Everton and have lost just twice at home to the Toffees since the competition’s inception.

Divock Origi scored a 96th-minute winner in last season’s corresponding fixture in December 2018. More recently, the sides played out a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park in March.

The two sides will meet again at Anfield in the third round of the FA Cup after being drawn together in Monday’s draw.

Fabinho is sidelined with an ankle injury and could miss the remainder of the calendar year.

Joel Matip is out with a knee injury. Dejan Lovren is expected to continue alongside Virgil van Dijk at centre-back.

James Milner, Naby Keita, Joe Gomez and Xherdan Shaqiri were all unused substitutes on Saturday and could benefit from any squad rotation, while Divock Origi is an alternate option to Roberto Firmino.

Nathaniel Clyne is a long-term absentee.

Marco Silva fielded a back five against Leicester but could revert to a back four for this one. An extra body in midfield could see Morgan Schneiderlin start alongside Tom Davies.

Alex Iwobi appears to be above Bernard in the pecking order, while Dominic Calvert-Lewin faces competition up front from Moise Kean and Cenk Tosun.

Theo Walcott has a knock and is doubtful for Wednesday. Fabian Delph faces a late fitness test to see if he can recover from a hamstring problem.

Jean-Philippe Gbamin remains sidelined until January. The Ivorian made just one Premier League appearance before picking up a serious muscle injury.

Andre Gomes is a long-term absentee after dislocating his ankle. Cuco Martina and Seamus Coleman are also absent for the Blues.
