MATCH PREVIEW: Liverpool V Everton

Liverpool welcome Everton to Anfield on Wednesday evening as both sides are on opposite sides of the form scale at the moment. Everton boss Roberto Martinez is under immense pressure from his fan base for poor results in the league while Jurgen Klopp is idolised by Kopites all over after guiding his side to the semi-final of the Europa League. The contrast in fortunes of the clubs should make for a heated Merseyside derby.

Divock Origi picked up a knock against Bournemouth but according to several news outlets he could still be available for the derby on Wednesday. Definitely unavailable for Liverpool are Emre Can and Jordan Henderson who will not appear again this season for the Reds.

For Everton, Phil Jagielka and Seamus Coleman are both out with hamstring injuries. Ross Barkley should return to the starting XI after being rested.

Previous Meetings

The last time the two sides met was in October last year, the game ended 1-1 after goals from Romelu Lukaku and Danny Ings. Everton's last trip to Anfield also ended in a 1-1 draw this time it was Phil Jagielka and Steven Gerrard on the score sheet.

The Toffees have failed to win in their last five visits to Anfield in the league. In fact their last win at Anfield was back in 1999.

Stat Sandwich

  • Liverpool have lost only one of their last eight matches in the league.
  • Everton have only picked up 17 points at Goodison Park this season.
  • Daniel Sturridge has scored four goals in his last five Premier League games.

I haven't had a bet on Liverpool in a while because I'm a poor student but my loan went in this weekend so I'm sure I can spare a couple of quid! Haha.

I've had my eye on a Daniel Sturridge and Liverpool 2-1 win scorecast at 25/1. I'll probably also pop a quid on one of the defenders to score because the odds are better and you never know what could happen in a Merseyside derby.

If you think the game is going to end in yet another draw 1-1 is priced at 13/1 while 2-2 is down at 12/1.

Enjoy the match folks, wherever you are watching!
