When: Sunday 24 April 2022, Kick-off 16:30
On Sunday afternoon, Liverpool hosts Everton at Anfield in what is arguably the most important Merseyside derby in recent years.
Jurgen Klopp’s team has been in relentless form of late in the Premier League. The Reds head into the second derby of the season on the back of ten wins in their last 11 outings in the English top-flight. The only blip was a 2-2 draw at reigning champions and league leaders Manchester City. The good recent run of form has the men from Merseyside just a point shy of City in what is becoming a fascinating race for the Premier League title.
Liverpool’s defensive solidity has been the key to their recent good form in the English top-flight, as they have kept clean sheets in six of their last seven outings in the Premier League.
Liverpool has claimed 11 consecutive home victories in the English top-flight. A record of nine clean sheets in their last 11 league matches at Anfield has played a key role in their recent stellar run at Anfield. The Reds have also been potent at the other end of the pitch of late on home soil, scoring at least two goals in seven of their last eight league matches on home soil.
The Toffees could head into this game in the relegation zone, as 18th place Burnley trail the Toffees by just one point after the Clarets’ 2-0 home win over Southampton on Thursday night. The visitors do have a game in hand on their north west rivals, which could be key in the fight for survival.
Everton’s recent league form has not been great, but they have taken four points from a possible six in home games against Manchester United and Leicester. However, they needed a stoppage-time goal from Richarlison to rescue a point in a 1-1 draw against Leicester last time out, although the Brazilian missed two gilt-edged chances earlier in the game.
One of the causes of Everton’s lowly position in the Premier League table has been their away form. The Toffees have failed to win in 13 away matches in the English top-flight while claiming just one league win on their travels all season.
A record of just one win in the last 25 meetings with Liverpool in all competitions does not bode well for an away win in this clash either.
There is an adage about form going out of the window in derbies. However, in this case, it is hard to look past the two teams’ highly contrasting form. The home win offers little to no value in this clash. Instead, we are looking to the goals market and the first recommendation we are making is over 3.5 goals scored.
Everton has conceded at least two goals in their last five away games in the English top-flight. Liverpool are a potent attacking force. The other bet we recommend is Sadio mane to be an anytime goalscorer. He came up trumps for us against United and we expect the same in this derby clash.
Our Tips: We are backing over 3.5 goals scored at odds of 13/10 and/or Sadio Mane to be anytime goalscorer at odds of 21/20. (All odds are taken from Bet365).
