Liverpool have to put the disappointment of third league loss in a row behind them when the match that splits the city takes place on Tuesday, Liverpool v Everton. Everton come into this match off the back of a morale boosting win over Tottenham but Everton looked pretty lucky to get anything from that game, never mind three points, and the red half of the city will be more than hopeful ahead of this match.
Liverpool are the favourites to win this match as you’d expect at home but the bookies are taking no chances with the respective form of each side and the best odds Liverpool can be backed at at the time of writing are 4/5. Several bookies have reported money for Everton though ahead of this match and the odds of an away win are on the slide with the top price at the moment being 9/2. The draw backers will look at this match as a good opportunity to make some cash and in what should be a close game expect the draw at 13/5 to be popular also.
Results at Goodison can often be a mixed bag but Liverpool have certainly ruled the roost at Anfield in this fixture over the past decade or so. The last time Everton recorded a victory in this match was back in 1999 when Everton won 1-0 and that is Everton’s only victory here at Anfield in the last fifteen years. It is worth noting that this fixture has ended all square on three of the last four occasions so that result has to be given some serious consideration, especially when you add in the fact that Liverpool have drawn eight out of thirteen home league games this season. The most likely correct score if this game is a draw has to be 1-1 (the score in the two of the last three draws between the sides) and that outcome can be backed at 13/2 whilst the score last year was 2-2 and that bet is not out of the question at big odds of 20/1.
The last two wins for Liverpool in this match have both been by a 1-0 scoreline and considering Liverpool have only scored fifteen goals in thirteen home games and also conceded ten in those matches that has to be the most likely score if Liverpool win at 6/1. This game has become a lot cleaner with more foreigners being brought in for both sides but there is still potential for some bust ups and it could be a good idea to back a red card in this match. You can get 11/4 on a red card for either side whilst it is 4/1 that an Everton player is dismissed, 11/2 that a Liverpool players sees red and 14/1 that both teams lose a man.
