Liverpool won four and drew one of the last five Merseyside derbies

A real buzz is expected in and around Goodison Park on Wednesday evening. Everton and Liverpool are ready to lock horns in a big Merseyside derby in the postponed game of Matchday No 29. On top of bragging rights, both outfits have a lot to fight for in this tie.

Liverpool won four and drew one of the last five Merseyside derbies. The Reds are still in the title race after a 3-1 win on Sunday afternoon at Craven Cottage.
Mohamed Salah got his rest at the weekend and is expected to return to starting lineup on Wednesday.

Everton clinched a huge 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest in a relegation six-pointer on Sunday afternoon, also at Goodison. The Toffees survived several critical situations in the dying minutes of the first half.

They eventually found a way to keep a clean sheet and rescue a win. Sean Dyche’s men are now five points above Luton Town in the red zone.

Liverpool have rebounded from consecutive failures in both Premier League and Europa League. They dispatched Fulham 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at Craven Cottage. The Reds thus stayed in the title race.

They share the top of the standings with Arsenal. The two teams sit a point above third-placed Manchester City. The Citizens have a game in hand, though.

Recent Meetings
Liverpool celebrated a 2-0 victory in the reverse game in October last year at Anfield. The Reds go into this on the back of four wins and a draw in the last five encounters with Everton.

The Toffees have failed to find the back of the net in any of the previous four Merseyside derbies.

Everton vs Liverpool Prediction
Everton lost just one of the previous five home outings in the Premier League. They have kept their net untouched in consecutive home wins over direct relegation rivals Burnley and Nottingham Forest.

However, the Toffees have also suffered a painful 0-6 loss at the hands of Chelsea in between these two wins. They are now set to face title hopefuls who can’t afford a slip-up on Wednesday.

Liverpool only have the Premier League to focus on after suffering the Europa League elimination at the hands of Atalanta last week. The Reds have dominated this matchup historically. They will come into this tie on the back of four wins and a draw in the previous five clashes with Everton.

The quality is on Liverpool’s side and we expect them to dominate from the first to the final minute on Wednesday evening. The main bet is Liverpool to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 2.20 odds.

You can alternatively take the 2.00 odds offered for Mohamed Salah to score anytime for the visitors. The Egyptian King got his rest at the weekend. He played only the last 25 minutes at Craven Cottage. Salah is his team’s top scorer with 17 goals to his name this term. Everton shipped six goals nine days ago away at Chelsea.
