Following a lengthy international break we’re back to serve up another Premier League prediction weekend. As always, you can rest assured that our experts have paid attention to every possible detail when creating our Premier League tips & predictions today here @ BettingTips.net.
For our Premier League predictions today, we’re turning our attention to the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. Ancelotti’s unbeaten Everton host the falter champions Liverpool in a match that could very well put an end to the Toffee’s Derby Day woes. Premier League tips, betting info and more ie ahead…
The Ancelotti era looks to have started emphatically, as the Toffees find themselves at the top of the Premier League table after 4 games. Everton have won all of their league and cup games so far and are the league’s joint top scorers. New star signing James has slotted into the side effortlessly and is playing a pivotal role. Meanwhile forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin is already banging the goals in for fun. Unlike their neighbours, Everton seem to have survived the international break without getting hit by any Covid or injury problems. Top 6 was the ambition, top 4 may be the reality.
The champions suffered one of this season’s many surprise results as Aston Villa defied all Premier League predictions experts by thrashing the Reds 7-2. Jurgen Klopp’s signature high line was exposed time and time again in a sloppy defensive performance. Perhaps most striking was Klopp’s refusal to make his team sit deeper despite having their high line exposed time and time again. Liverpool have been hit with 3 positive Covid-19 tests ahead of this game, however Sadio Mane is rumored to be set to recover ahead of Saturday’s derby.
It was 10 years to the day of this game the last time Everton won this fixture in any competition. And our Premier League predictions today suggest they’ve never had a better chance to break the curse on the anniversary of their last victory. Everton captain Seamus Coleman is the only player from either side who played the last time Everton won a Merseyside Derby. The only clash between Klopp’s Liverpool and Ancelotti’s Everton was a post lockdown, fanless game at Goodison back in June. The game ended 0-0, however, with Everton in such fine scoring form a repeat of that looks unlikely.
Below, we’ve provided the last 5 results of the fixtures between these two sides. Additionally, you can find 3 statistical highlights that might influence this game. We’ve used all of that info and more for this Premier League prediction weekend here @ BettingTips.net.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today suggest another sharing of the spoils in Merseyside on Saturday.
This fixture last season was a 0-0 draw in a fanless Goodison Park. However, it was the first game back following the 3 month lockdown and both sides looked to be somewhat off the pace. This Saturday, we see things playing out quite differently, with Everton in fine scoring form and Liverpool’s defence looking easy to expose. Everton have never looked better placed to end their horrific Merseyside Derby record on the 10th anniversary of their last victory. That being said, it seems unlikely that Klopp will allow his Reds side to suffer a second consecutive league defeat. We see it being hard fought, with Everton looking sharper, but ultimately think neither side will manage to come out on top. We’re therefore backing a draw with both teams scoring at odds of 4.75 with Bet365. If you want to back a first goalscorer, Calvert-Lewin is our front runner.
