Liverpool v Everton Betting Offers and Tips
It’s derby day in the North West of England on Sunday. The late game sees first and second place go up against each other in the Manchester derby but the warm up game is every bit as tasty as Liverpool host Everton.
The two Merseyside teams are separated by mere meters across Stanley Park and it’s fair to say familiarity has bred contempt.
No other English fixture has seen more red cards than Liverpool versus Everton and there’s every reason to believe we’ll be in for another feisty clash on Sunday especially now they’ve been drawn together in the third round of the FA Cup.
Liverpool go into the match as short as $1.25 with some bookies but if this game had taken place just a couple of weeks earlier they’d be even shorter.
The difference is the arrival of Sam Allardyce at Everton.
The Toffees were floundering under caretaker manager, David Unsworth, before Allardyce’s appointment. Since he’s arrived at the club, Everton have claimed a maximum six points and the confidence is starting to return.
Appointing Allardyce all but ensure Everton won’t be relegated but he isn’t exactly the big name manager the club’s fans were hoping for.
Allardyce has a reputation for favouring long ball football and settling for a point away from home. That’s not going to cut it long term at Goodison Park and it may not cut it against Liverpool.
When they build up a head of steam, Liverpool are as entertaining a team as you’ll find in Europe. They get the ball into attacking positions incredibly quickly and have players capable of finishing off chances with ruthless efficiency.
Everton are a tougher prospect under Allardyce than they’ve been at any point this season but Liverpool are unbeaten at Anfield in the league and should pick up another three points at a best price of $1.33 with Centrebet.
Klopp’s Men Must Work for Their Win
Liverpool have had a considerably better time of it than their neighbours this season but they’ve not been without their difficulties. Klopp has come in for criticism for Liverpool’s defensive frailties and he admitted he was worried about another collapse at Brighton last weekend.
Thankfully for Klopp, his team were able to find another gear and they kicked on to thrash the Seagulls 5-1. That’s the sort of devastating result Liverpool are capable of but they’ll find goals much tougher to come by against Allardyce’s Everton.
Liverpool will have to work for it but we think they’ll be able to do enough. So, as well as backing under 2.5 goals at $2.65 with Unibet, we recommend betting on the Liverpool 2-0 correct score which is $7.00 with Palmerbet.
Salah to Pounce in the Latter Stages
Mohamed Salah was greeted with intrigue when he signed for Liverpool. The club’s fans are knowledgeable so they knew the Egyptian midfielder had flattered to deceive at Chelsea but improved during his spell in Italy.
Still, nobody could have predicted that his first few months on Merseyside would have gone so well.
Salah’s pace was the first thing to catch the eye on his return to the Premier League but it’s his ability to finish off chances that has turned him to one of the best players of the season.
Everton will try to counter Salah and the rest of Liverpool’s pacey players by limiting the space afforded to them, especially in the early stages. That could all change later on though when the Everton players tire and they may need to push forward to score.
That’s when Salah will be at his most dangerous so back him to score the game’s last goal at $4.50 with Crownbet.
