Premier League: Liverpool vs Everton preview

The 229th edition of the Merseyside Derby will take place at Anfield Road on Sunday, so far Liverpool have recorded 91 victories compared to Everton's 66. Last season the Reds defeated the Toffees in both league matches, 1-0 at Goodison Park and 3-1 at home. Liverpool have won the last three direct matches and have not lost against Everton since 2010. Moreover, Everton have not won at Anfield Road since 1999. However, Liverpool have won just three of the last five Merseyside Derby matches at Anfield Road.

Liverpool seem to have found their scoring boots lately, they have won their last three matches in all competitions and scored an amazing 15 goals in the process. Last weekend they secured a 5-1 victory at Brighton in the Premier League and a few days later they thrashed Spartak Moscow 7-0 in the Champions League to finish top of the table in Group E. Alberto Moreno picked up a knock during the Champions League match and will be unavailable on Sunday, along with Joel Matip, Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Bogdan.

Everton seem to have recovered after a terrible start to the season, they have recorded three consecutive wins in all competitions and new manager Sam Allardyce seems capable to turn things around at the club. Moreover, they have not conceded a single goal in those last three matches, including last weekend's 2-0 home victory over Huddersfield. Leighton Baines missed the last match through injury but he could recover in time for Sunday's derby, while James McCarthy, Ramiro Funes Mori, Ross Barkley, Seamus Coleman, Yannick Bolasie and Maarten Stekelenburg remain sidelined.

Probable line-ups:

Liverpool: Mignolet - Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Lovren, Robertson - Milner, Henderson, Coutinho - Salah, Firmino, Mane

Everton: Pickford - Kenny, Keane, Williams, Martina - Gueye - Lennon, Davies, Rooney, Sigurdsson - Calvert-Lewin

My prediction: Liverpool to win 3-1.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Liverpool win - 1.30
Draw - 6.00
Everton win - 11.00

    I think Sam Allardyce and Everton played that game in only possible way when we know the current Liverpool form and it was from a defence.
    Not that Everton created many chances on counters and not that penalty was a clear one but I think Big Sam just gave them a chance to clinch something from the game.
    Klop made a mistake not starting couple of his best players but using them in almost full length of the midweek CL game against Spartak M won 7-0!
