Liverpool vs Everton : Preview and Predictions
The FA Cup draw has put Merseyside rivals together in the third round s the crowd in Liverpool will have the chance to enjoy the second derby of the season this Friday at Anfield. The league tie saw the Toffees holding the red-hot Reds to a 1-1 draw. Can they repeat such showing and at least try and earn the replay at Goodison?
Jurgen Klopp’s men will enter the game in higher spirits after they’ve managed a last-gasp win over Burnley at Turf Moor thanks to a goal from Ragnar Klavan late in the stoppage time. It was the third win on the bounce in the Premier League for the Reds who are still only three points behind Manchester United in the second position.
The victory gets on significance even more if we know that Klopp could not count on services of two of his best players Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah. Both of them are reported to be injured, but theirs status is kind of a “secret” at this point and we doubt they’ll make the appearance against Everton in the FA Cup.
This leaves Klopp with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as the duo to count on in this Merseyside derby. Mane was the one who broke the deadlock at Turf Moor netting a stunner from outside the box and backing his as the anytime goalscorer against Everton is the best shot for those who want to chase this particular market.
Everton, on the other side, could not do much to prefect the loss to Manchester United on Monday. It was the second straight defeat for the team led by Sam Allardyce. The former “Three Lions” head coach is winless in last four league ties which saw the Toffees net no more than a single goal.
Liverpool vs Everton: Predictions
Liverpool are 1.40 favourites to clinch the victory at Anfield, but since Coutinho and Salah are questionable, we can hardly see the value there.
With Everton’s attacking woes, well rather back a low-scoring contest as you can take the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.25 at the moment.
