What Trueform says for Liverpool vs Everton
Liverpool are battling hard to stay just behind Premier League pacesetters Manchester City and can’t afford to slip up when facing neighbours Everton at Anfield.
The Toffees have also been going along nicely of late, but are still rated a level below the Reds and have not won at this venue since the turn of the century.
With Jurgen Klopp’s side conceding only one goal in six top-flight fixtures here this term, 29/20 for a home win to nil is our opening Liverpool vs Everton prediction.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool have a club-record 33 points at this stage of the season after securing a 3-0 success at Watford to remain just two adrift of City.
Klopp was happy to see Roberto Firmino end his two-month Premier League goal drought, after earlier having a hand in Mo Salah’s opener and winning the free-kick for Trent Alexander-Arnold to strike.
“He’s working so hard,” Klopp said of the Brazil international. “He’s here, he’s there, he’s got six goals but he opens 5,000 gaps for everybody.
“He’s doing the job that makes him so unbelievably valuable for us. I’m really happy for him.”
Even the 82nd-minute dismissal of Jordan Henderson had little effect on Liverpool at Vicarage Road.
The Reds have not been as thrilling as last season, but Klopp feels their new-found patience and pragmatism is paying off.
Looking at the Liverpool vs Everton odds, that view makes 31/10 for a draw at half-time and then the hosts to prevail a value option.
Last Liverpool EPL line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Shaqiri, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
Henderson serves a one-match ban for his red card at Watford, while Adam Lallana returned to training on Thursday.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to return at right-back after being rested against PSG in midweek.
A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds
Everton’s recent efforts are also hard to fault, with a 1-0 triumph over Cardiff making it five wins from their last seven top-flight fixtures.
Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 59th-minute goal lifted the Toffees up to sixth place in the Premier League table and Marco Silva is happy with his defence, too.
Michael Keane, Yerry Mina and Kurt Zouma are all fighting for places in the middle and that is having a positive effect.
“I can change for many reasons,” said Silva. “I like to have this problem. That means we have quality and I don’t have doubts.
“This competition between them will make them better players every day and we can grow as a club in this way.”
That view was backed up by a goalless draw at Chelsea before the international break, but Everton have faltered when visiting other big clubs.
They went down 2-0 at Arsenal and 2-1 at Manchester United, when only scoring from the penalty spot, so the jury is still out on how far they can go.
We still prefer the Reds here and 29/4 for a 2-0 home victory completes our Liverpool vs Everton betting tips.
Last Everton line-up: Pickford, Keane, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Andre Gomes, Sigurdsson, Gueye, Bernard, Walcott, Richarlison.
Everton have no injury concerns and Ademola Lookman could come into contention for a starting place after impressing as a substitute at Cardiff.
PSG 2-1 LIVERPOOL – James Milner
EVERTON 1-0 Cardiff – Gylfi Sigurdsson
Head-to-head: Everton 0-0 Liverpool, Liverpool 2-1 Everton, Liverpool 1-1 Everton, Liverpool 3-1 Everton, Everton 0-1 Liverpool
