Everton host their city rivals Liverpool in a Merseyside Derby which is potentially one of the most important in the league for a long time as Everton look to put even more distance between themselves and the Red side of the city.
The home victory is priced at 9/5 with Pinnacle, who once again offer the best odds on the draw as well at 26/11. But if you fancy Liverpool to put their league position aside and take 3 points then look to Betfred who are offering 7/4.
With Everton above Liverpool in the table, Koppites will be hoping they can claim bragging rights with a victory at Goodison, but that is easier said than done this season. Liverpool are suffering the pains of a transition season, some fantastic elements paired with some terrible ones. The likes of Raheem Sterling and Suso are showing real potential whilst the defence is managing to do more damage than good, culminating in frustrating performances. Everton have been one of the sides of the season, and have been particularly good at finding the net, notching up 15 in their 8 league games. Bearing that in mind, it is hard to imagine not seeing Everton score.
Following his harsh red card last week, Everton’s top assist maker this season, Steven Pienaar will be absent, which means the burden will fall to others to step up and create, and I think Leighton Baines will step up, having grabbed 2 already this season. A poor defence against a marauding defender in fine form is never a good match up, and you can take advantage of this by backing Baines to assist anytime at 9/2 with Boylesport.
With the performances these two sides have put out this season, Everton should be expected to win, but as they always say, form goes out the window on derby day. One thing is sure, this game will be tight. Liverpool can rise to big occasions as they showed against Man United and Everton will be playing with great confidence. Look at Everton to win in the Draw No Bet market at 19/20 with Bet Victor and them to win by exactly one goal at 7/2 with Bet365 for some good value.
