Derbies are never easy to predict and this one is no different. The midweek clash in the English Premier League will see Anfield play host to Liverpool vs Everton. The two Merseyside clubs have dished out entertaining matches in the past. This time too, the expectations are high that it would be a close affair.
Liverpool have 40 points and are top of the standings. Everton have 14 points and are just above the relegation zone. There is enough incentive for the two managers as well. Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp is looking for his 100th Premier League win, while Everton’s Marco Silva is desperate to save his managerial career.
Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 31 Premier League matches, winning 26 of them. If they avoid defeat in this match, it will be their longest unbeaten run in Premier League history. Also, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 17 Premier League matches against Everton. This run saw seven LIverpool wins and ten draws.
Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah remain the top scorers for Liverpool this season with eight and six goals. The combo is expected to run the show once again. The support on the wings from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Roberston is great asset.
The visitors have lost their last two league matches and are in danger of relegation. Furthermore, they haven’t won a league game at Anfield since September 1999. This campaign too, Everton have lost five of their last six away Premier League matches.
Everton have struggled for goals this season, with just 14 to their name. That is the joint-third worst in the league so far. For Everton to have any chances of coming back with a point, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison will be vital.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Trent Alexander-Arnold has one goal and five assists this season. With his speed down the flanks, Liverpool can expect more assists.
Roberto Firmino has four goals and three assists so far in the league. The Brazilian could be a dark horse pick for your fantasy team.
Richarlison has four goals and two assists this season so far. That includes a goal in his previous game against Leicester that gave Everton the lead.
