Liverpool vs Everton predictions, odds and betting tips for Saturday's Merseyside derby. Derby day can often be a tight, tense and competitive affair with the games at Goodison Park in recent years often ending in draws and the games at Anfield almost always ending in victory for Liverpool. Crucially, Liverpool haven't lost against Everton since way back in 2010 when the Toffees had Arteta and Cahill in their side. The 23 derby days since that last Everton win have produced 12 draws and 11 wins for Liverpool and although both teams have been struggling for form of late, Klopp's men head into this game as the clear favourites to win. Everton fans will tell you, their team simply can't beat Liverpool anymore and that it seems to be some kind of psychological issue their side have when it comes to the derby. However, Everton have performed much better on their travels this season and Liverpool's immaculate home record has been ruined over the last month, so perhaps this is the turning point for the Toffees.

Liverpool to Edge yet Another Merseyside Derby
Liverpool travelled to Leicester for their last Premier League game where, despite scoring the first goal, the Reds were comfortably beaten in the end. After a goalless first half, Salah thrust Liverpool in front with a top-quality first-time finish. The Foxes equalised via a free-kick from Maddison and then the Liverpool goalkeeper Allison came flying out of his area to clear a long through ball only to clash with one of his defenders and leave Vardy with an open goal and the former England international made it 2-1. Liverpool lost possession in midfield and with their defence out, of shape a simple through ball to Barnes and a neat finish from the Englishman wrapped up a 3-1 home win for Leicester.
Everton played host to the Man City machine on Wednesday night and went behind to a deflected effort from Foden in the 32nd-minute. However, the Toffees responded well and equalised through Richarlison after Digne's shot hit the post and bounced into the back of the net off the Brazilian international. Man City controlled the second half and restored their lead thanks to an excellent strike from Mahrez and with 13-minutes left on the clock Silva scored a 3rd which really should have been saved by Pickford. Everton's performance was better than the one they gave against Fulham days earlier, but their issues at Goodison Park this season are there for all to see.
Liverpool head into the derby as the form favourites with three wins and three defeats from their last six matches in all competitions. Everton have picked up two wins, one draw and three defeats from their last six fixtures but haven't lost any of their last seven away games.
Liverpool dominate the head-to-head record between these two clubs with 78 wins, 66 draws and 52 defeats from their last 196 encounters in all competitions. As mentioned earlier, Liverpool haven't lost against Everton since 2010 and have secured 12 draws and 11 wins since that loss. Earlier in the season when the sides met at Goodison Park the pair played out a 2-2 draw.
Liverpool will be without the injured Jota, Matip, Gomez, Tavares, Milner and van Dijk, while there are also concerns over Naby Keita.
The visitors won't be able to call upon Gbamin or Mina for Saturday's clash, while there are big doubts over Allan and Calvert-Lewin as well.
Liverpool vs Everton Three Best Bets
We're expecting an entertaining 90-minutes between two sides who haven't looked at their best defensively or one reason or another of late. Liverpool have the psychological edge having not lost against the Toffees in over a decade but the pair have drawn 12 of their last 23 encounters, so Everton are able to hold their rivals from time to time. The disappointing form of both clubs recently makes this derby game all that more important as both teams will be desperate to put 3pts on the board and hope that it is the beginning of a good run.
- Both Teams to Score: BTTS – Yes @ 3/4 with bet365

- Anytime Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah to Score @ 4/7 with William Hill
Both Teams to Score: BTTS – Yes
Both teams have scored in two of the last three league meetings between Liverpool and Everton, and both team's defences have been generous in recent matches. Liverpool have conceded 10-goals in their last five games, while Everton have shipped 15-goals in their last six fixtures. Both teams have scored in four of Liverpool's last six matches and the same can be said for four of Everton's last five outings.
Total Goals Under/Over: Over 2.5 Goals
Over 2.5 goals have been scored in two of the last three league meetings between these two clubs, with their last encounter ending in a 2-2 draw. Four of Liverpool's last six outings have produced at least three goals, while four of Everton's last five matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored. Liverpool have only failed to score in one of their last six matches but they have also only kept one clean sheet during that period, while Everton haven't kept a single clean sheet in their last six attempts.
Anytime Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah to Score
Mohamed Salah top scores in the Premier League with 17-goals and looks set to clinch the Golden Boot award at the end of the season. The Egyptian international has scored four goals in his last four league games and appears to be in top form right now. Salah scored in the last Merseyside derby back in October and will fancy his chances of finding the back of the net against an Everton defence that has been in poor form of late.
