As usual, BetOnWins is here to bring you the best Liverpool v Everton prediction and betting picks. Liverpool has the chance to secure the leading position in the Premier League as they prepare to welcome their Merseyside rivals, Everton, to Anfield for the early kickoff on Saturday.
Jurgen Klopp’s team was left to regret their missed opportunities in their previous match, where they were held to a 2-2 draw by Brighton during a game on the South Coast two weeks ago. Going into the upcoming derby match, Liverpool currently occupies the fourth position in the league table. They are 10 points ahead of Everton, who managed to create some distance between themselves and the relegation zone with a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth in their last outing.
Liverpool Team News
Liverpool suffered another injury setback as Andy Robertson is believed to have sustained a possible dislocated shoulder during Scotland’s match against Spain last Thursday. One of our Liverpool v Everton predictions is that he is likely to be replaced in the left-back position, with Kostas Tsimikas or Joe Gomez being potential candidates for that role.
In the central defense, Joel Matip has been the preferred choice alongside captain Virgil van Dijk in recent weeks, rather than Ibrahima Konate. In the midfield, it’s unlikely that there will be many changes, as Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai have been performing exceptionally well this season.
Harvey Elliott was selected over Ryan Gravenberch in the match against Brighton, and given that Curtis Jones is still serving a suspension from the Tottenham game, it’s possible that Klopp will opt to keep Elliott in the starting lineup.
For the attacking positions, Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo may make a return alongside Mohamed Salah, especially considering that Klopp previously had South American stars Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz on the bench the last time Liverpool played in an early game following an international break.
Everton Team News
Regarding Everton, there might be a modification in the midfield for their upcoming match against Liverpool across Stanley Park.
Initially, Idrissa Gana Gueye was included in Sean Dyche’s starting lineup for the 3-0 victory over Bournemouth. However, the Senegalese player had to be replaced due to an injury suffered during the warm-up. Nevertheless, Gueye came off the bench for Senegal in their match against Cameroon on Monday, and he should be ready to step in for either Andre Onana or James Garner in Everton’s 4-4-1-1 formation.
Abdoulaye Doucoure operates behind the solitary striker, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who has been in the starting lineup for four of Everton’s last five matches since his return from a fractured cheekbone. A long shot type of Livertoon v Everton betting pick is for Dominic Calvert-Lewin to Score at Anytime at 6.00. Unfortunately, Dele Alli, Seamus Coleman, and Andre Gomes are all still sidelined due to injury.
Liverpool v Everton Stats
An entire generation of Everton supporters has yet to witness their team secure a victory at Anfield, as Liverpool has emerged triumphant in nine of the last ten derby matches held at their home ground.
The Toffees’ sole success on Liverpool’s home turf in the 21st century occurred during a match in 2021 when spectators were not permitted to attend.
In 10 of the last 13 derby encounters, the total number of goals scored was less than three, and in only three of the most recent 13 meetings did both teams manage to find the back of the net.
Liverpool v Everton Prediction
Our last betting tip was once again a winner, so we are looking to continue our hot streak.
Liverpool’s exceptional track record at home in recent seasons renders them a formidable force to contend with, particularly when considering Everton’s poor performance at Anfield in the past few years.
However, the absence of Robertson in the defensive lineup might introduce a degree of vulnerability for Liverpool, providing Everton with opportunities to make an impact in this Merseyside clash.
