The Reds welcome Everton to Anfield in Liverpool on Saturday for the 236th edition of the Merseyside Derby and the 58th in the Premier League.

Liverpool have the strong upper hand in the head-to-head, with 24 wins to Everton’s 9, from their 57 Premier League encounters. Or 93 wins to 66 in all competitions.

Everton haven’t won a Merseyside Derby in over a decade and haven’t won at Anfield since the turn of the millennium. The last 23 matches between the two sides have seen 11 Liverpool wins and 12 draws.

The Reds come into this one having won their last 4 Merseyside Derbies at Anfield. However, this will be the first here without a crowd due to the pandemic.

Liverpool vs Everton: Recommended bets

Liverpool’s last home victory over Everton was a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup 13 months ago. A repeat of this score on Saturday is available at odds of 17/2.

The last Premier League match between them at Anfield finished 5-2 to Liverpool. The odds of 66/1 suggest few expect a repeat of that scoreline here.

Everton’s last win at Anfield was a 0-1 victory back in 1999. You can back them at 20/1 for the same scoreline here on Saturday.

The sides shared the points when they met earlier in the season. They played out a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park back in October. Odds of 18/1 are available for this one to have the same 2-2 scoreline.

Recent Merseyside Derbies have tended to be low scoring, with 5 of the last 7 matches seeing only 1 goal scored or less. You can back another low scoring game here on Saturday with odds of 13/10 for under 2.5 goals.

Liverpool vs Everton: What are the betting odds?

The Reds have won each of their last 4 Merseyside Derbies at Anfield. They start the match as the heavy favourites at 4/9 on.

Everton haven’t won at Anfield since the turn of the millennium; a run of 24 matches without a victory. They are the 6/1 underdogs on Saturday to pick up a rare away win the Merseyside Derby.

Draws are commonplace in the Merseyside Derby, with 5 of the last 7 league matches all ending in a stalemate including each of the last 2. Odds of 7/2 look good value for Liverpool and Everton cancelling each other out once again on Saturday.

Liverpool vs Everton: Match preview

While both sides come into this looking to get their seasons back on track having failed to win any of their last 3 league matches, this was a top-of-the-table clash when the sides met earlier in the season.

Then league-leaders Everton came into the match on 12 points after a perfect start of 4 wins from 4 over the opening weeks of the season. Liverpool were joint-second on points at the time, with 9 points from a possible 12 having suffered defeat at the hands of Villa.

It was a more eagerly anticipated clash than usual as a result and in terms of entertainment value for the neutral, it certainly delivered. Four goals, several hairy challenges, numerous controversial decisions, two serious injuries and a red card.

For Liverpool fans looking back though, it is the match that derailed their title defence. With their side already 1-0 up due to an early Mané goal, Liverpool had a massive penalty shout after Pickford brought Virgil van Dijk down in the box.

Van Dijk had to be replaced, with him later being ruled out for the season due to an ACL. To add insult to injury, no penalty was awarded as van Dijk was deemed offside by the edge of his sleeve. The referee, Michael Oliver, later confirming that Jordan Pickford probably should have been sent off for the reckless tackle though regardless.

Michael Keane levelled shortly after for Everton. Salah restored Liverpool’s lead midway through the second-half before Calvert-Lewin equalised once again with another header.

Richarlison then took out Thiago, who was making his first start for Liverpool, with a knee-high challenge and received a straight-red in the 90th minute. While Thiago was able to complete the match, the resulting knee injury meant he didn’t start another match for the Reds for the remainder of 2020.

The drama wasn’t finished there, with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson firing in from close range. However, Liverpool once again had VAR intervene to rule Mané offside in the build-up, with the sleeve once again being the offender.

After a spate of dull matches finishing either 0-0 or 1-0 between these sides, it was a real treat for the neutral to bring this derby to life once more. Although, I’m sure Liverpool fans would take another uneventful, quiet, injury-free derby if offered.

Liverpool team news vs Everton

The Reds come into today’s match missing all 3 first-team central defenders who were on their books at the start of this season. Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have all been ruled out for the season.

January signing Ozan Kabak was Liverpool’s man of the match against Leipzig in midweek in their 0-2 Champions League first-leg win. He is expected to keep his place in defence with fellow new-boy Ben Davies potentially getting his first start alongside him.

This would allow Henderson to move into his preferred midfield position, where Liverpool are looking a little short at the moment with James Milner, Fabinho and Naby Keita all ruled out.

Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both hoping to benefit from any rotation Klopp makes to the side who won in midweek.

Diogo Jota is still a couple of weeks away from a return from his knee injury.

Everton team news vs Liverpool

Jean-Philippe Gbamin is Everton’s only major injury concern before this match. The 25-year-old midfielder is yet to be involved for Everton this season due to a calf injury. He likely won’t feature for the blues until April.

Allan is yet to feature for the club since picking up a muscle injury back in December. However, he was an unused substitute against Fulham and is expected to be eased back gently by the club. Expect him to be on the bench here.

Fabian Delph is in a similar situation due to a hamstring injury sustained at the start of December. He has also been an unused sub in recent matches and any minutes he gets here will likely be from the bench.

Yerry Mina was an early substitute in the midweek match against Manchester City. While the exact prognosis is unknown at this time, he has been ruled out of contention for Saturday.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin has missed Everton’s last 2 league matches with a thigh injury. However, Carlo has confirmed he should be fit and starting against Liverpool.
