What Trueform says for Everton vs Liverpool
Liverpool face one of the toughest tests of their title run-in when visiting neighbours Everton on Sunday and we’re expecting a fierce battle.
Both of last season’s Premier League Merseyside derbies ended in stalemate and the Toffees came within a whisker of picking up a point at Anfield in early December.
Punters can get 31/10 for a Goodison Park draw and that is our opening Everton vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton have struggled for consistency under Marco Silva but showed how good they can be on their day when beating Cardiff 3-0 in Wales on Tuesday.
Gylfi Sigurdsson became the highest-scoring Icelandic player in Premier League history that night, his brace taking him to 57 goals – two more than former Bolton and Chelsea favourite Eidur Gudjohnsen.
He is now gunning for revenge over the Reds after only a bizarre incident in the sixth minute of stoppage time separated the sides at Anfield earlier this season.
Liverpool substitute Divock Origi was on hand to pounce after Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford mishandled a sliced Virgil Van Dijk shot that had ballooned high up into the air.
Sigurdsson said: “You always want to win these games, especially after the disappointing ending to the game the last time we played them.
“To lose a derby game like that, being so close to a good point away from home, was very disappointing.”
The midfielder fired in a clinical finish from the edge of the box when Everton were beaten 2-1 by Liverpool in an FA Cup tie 14 months ago.
Looking at the Everton vs Liverpool odds, we like 3/1 for him to score at anytime again here.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Jagielka, Digne, Coleman, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Schneiderlin, Walcott, Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool were also at their best in midweek when thrashing Watford 5-0, with doubles from Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk lighting up a dominant display.
The fact that all five assists came from full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson paid testimony to the positive tactics employed by Jurgen Klopp.
“I always have that feeling that it will click, but in some games, it clicks better than others,” said Holland midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum.
“The belief is always there. We just have to make sure that it does click.”
However, the Reds had drawn four of their previous five matches and Wijnaldum is ready for another tight tussle at Goodison Park.
“I expect it’s going to be a big fight,” he added. “It was a good game last time we played them. They were really good, better than all the times I’d played them before.”
Let’s finish off our Everton vs Liverpool betting tips by taking 7/1 for a 1-1 stalemate.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Milner, Mane, Salah, Origi.
