Goodison Park will be set ablaze on Saturday, 17th October 2020, as Everton and Liverpool will lock horns against each other in the Merseyside derby of the English Premium League. The clash between the two teams is set to kick off by 12:30 GMT.
Taking a brief look at the tournament’s fourth matchday, we can see a lot of surprises – matches with more than six goals. The games include the clashes between Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur playing against 6, respectively, and a game between Aston Villa and Liverpool playing seven against 2, respectively.
Everton, who is trending with an unbeaten record in the league, top the table with 12 points, while their opponent is in fifth place on the table with 9 points. After suffering a powerful pain inflicted on them in their last game against Aston Villa, Liverpool is looking forward to bouncing back with something different as they will be visiting Goodison Park to battle with the leading team, Everton.
Everton’s performance since the beginning of the English Premier League and their victory against Brighton defeating them with four against 2 in their game boost their morale, making them confident of replicating the same win against Liverpool. Defeating the Reds with ease is easier said than done. We can see that the two teams ended their last meeting with a goalless stalemate in the 30th round match in the tournament.
According to the two teams’ head-to-head statistics in the last four meetings, we can see that Liverpool has won 2 matches and drawn two without losing a game to The Toffees.
Looking at Everton’s squad against the task ahead of them, players like James Rodriguez, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Doucoure, and Allan are like to be among the XI that will start the match against The Reds as they have been the leading players behind their unbeaten record in the tournament. Dominic’s last games’ performance will be a significant threat to The Reds as their defense is not that solid for Everton’s striker.
As for Liverpool, the shameful knockout punch given to them by Aston Villa has made them chose Marcelo instead of Adrian as the goalkeeper in their next match. Sadio Mane and Thiago Alcantara are expected to return to the team from their 14 days isolation period due to the pandemic crisis and should be in play in their next match.
Looking at the way things are for the two teams, we think Liverpool is likely to inflict the pain from their last match on Everton as they should defeat The Toffees playing three against 1.
We predict a match odd of 1.92 for Liverpool to destroy Everton’s unbeaten record, 5.0 for Everton to add the visiting team to their victory list, and 4.15 for them to play draw.
