Game: Liverpool – Everton
Date: 28 January, Tuesday 2014 year
Start time: 20:00 GMT
The battle for Liverpool will take place on Tuesday at Anfield.
Liverpool and Everton are fighting for the fourth place in the championship together with Tottenham. Only one point is separating The Reds and The Blues and both teams will double their efforts to win the derby.
The derby will meet one of the best home sides against one of the best visitors in the Premier League.
Liverpool was defeated on only one occasion at home and recorded nine wins in eleven games. On the other hand Everton lost only once away from home (4 victories and 6 draws in the other games). The Toffees’ lost only to Man City by 3-1 despite opening the score with an early goal.
After two (2-1) defeats against Chelsea and Man City, Liverpool showed improvement in their performances and won four out of their last five games in all competitions. With the support of their fans, The Reds will try to add up to their impressive results lately and grab another win.
However Everton is one of the steadiest and most solid teams in the Premier League. Only on one occasion the Blues lost a game by more than one goal (above-mentioned 3-1 Man City defeat).
With all this said, we expect that the derby for Liverpool will be a close match with no team having considerable advantage.
It is worth considering Asian Handicap (+1 goal) win for Everton, as The Blues don’t are unlikely to lose by more than one goal and if that is the case, the bet will be cancelled. However an away win or even a draw will keep you on the winning side.
