Fantasy Football: EPL Week 14 Liverpool vs Everton Preview

EPL Liverpool vs Everton

The Merseyside derby is one of the most hotly contested matches in football and this weekend will witness Liverpool take on local city rivals Everton at Anfield in the English Premier League. The visitors haven’t won at Anfield since September 1999 and are winless in their last 17 matches against the hosts, which makes Liverpool favourites for a win.

Liverpool had a poor outing in the Champions League during the week, losing 1-2 to Paris Saint-Germain. That loss puts strain on their European ambitions, but the Reds remain unbeaten in the Premier League (W10, D3). Liverpool average two goals per game and have the best defence in the league conceding just five goals so far.

The hosts have won five of their six Premier League matches at home and have conceded a solitary goal. Captain Jordan Henderson is out after picking a red card against Watford last time around, but the presence of striker-duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah gives strength to Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Everton under Marco Silva have improved in the recent matches and have won five of their last seven league games (W5, D1, L1). The Toffees have risen to sixth and should head into this Sunday Merseyside derby with great confidence of picking up at least a point.

The visitors, however, haven’t been impressive away from home. Everton have won just one of their six away league games this season (W1, D3, L2) and have conceded exactly two goals in four of those six. Even their lone win has come against a 10-men Leicester City side, which points to a problematic away form.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Mo Salah will be making his 50th Premier League appearance for Liverpool, should he play this match. He has 39 goals to his name and only two players have ever scored more in their first 50 matches for a club.

Gylfi Sigurdsson is enjoying this season under Silva and has already notched up six goals and two assists. The playmaker has been very consistent and could once again be a top pick for your side.

Idrissa Gueye has been one of the revelations for the Toffees with excellent defensive performances in the middle of the park. He averages 4.9 tackles per game and 2.4 interceptions – easily the leader for his side. Gueye can be a smart pick for your side!
