Here’s our advice on how to get a nice windfall from this weekend’s Merseyside derby at Goodison Park:
BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
This bet would have only come in once in the last five meetings between these teams but current form makes it an easy pick. Everton are flying high at the top of the Premier League table, with 12 goals scored in four straight wins. Possibly their only concern has been the form of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, with four goals conceded in high-scoring home victories over West Brom and Brighton. Liverpool have had a fortnight to reflect on a 7-2 thrashing at Aston Villa but that wasn’t their only open encounter of the new campaign, with Leeds edged out in a seven-goal thriller, while a 3-1 triumph over Arsenal featured some sloppy defending.
MOHAMED SALAH TO SCORE
The only plus point to come out of Liverpool’s embarrassing defeat at Villa Park was a brace for star front man Salah. That put the Egypt winger on five for the season and he again looks set to be competing for Golden Boot honours. Salah’s single-minded (arguably even selfish) approach was there for all to see when he nipped in to deny new teammate Diogo Jota a shooting chance versus Arsenal last month and he remains the Reds’ best bet to hit the back of the net.
OVER 49.5 BOOKING POINTS
Recent Merseyside derbies have been relatively tame affairs, with just 15 yellow cards handed out in the last five league encounters. However, they have tended to be one-sided contests, with the Toffees content to try and soak up Liverpool pressure. This time, Everton should be fired up to go all out for a first victory over their neighbours in 10 years and that can lead to a much feistier battle – even if a lack of supporters will subdue the atmosphere.
LIVERPOOL MOST CORNERS
This is invariably a standing dish whenever the Reds play, as they top the table for corners taken this term after trailing only Manchester City in this department last season. With Salah and Sadio Mane regularly attacking down the wings and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson joining in on the overlap, Liverpool always seem assured of picking up more than their fair share of corners. Everton have moved up from ninth in this category last term to fourth this season, but they are still well behind Jurgen Klopp’s men.
