Everton vs Liverpool: 5 Talking Points Before Kick Off

Everton vs Liverpool: Line-ups



Expect Goals To Flow


Only West Bromwich Albion have conceded more than Liverpool’s 11 in their opening four games of the campaign – their most at this stage of a league season since 1937-38 and a tally it took them 13 matches to reach last term.


While Liverpool have one of the worst defensive records in the league, Everton are the joint-leading scorers; while Liverpool’s recent away form is poor, Everton have lost just one of their 14 home games across all competitions under Carlo Ancelotti.


The form of new signings James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure has added to the perfection of Everton’s start, and all three of them have tasted victory over Liverpool more recently than Everton as a club have.


The last three Goodison Park showdowns have finished goalless, and another stalemate this weekend would set an unwanted record for the first specific fixture in English top-flight history to end 0-0 in four consecutive matches.


We can see the long derby drought ending, but only in terms of goals rather than an Everton victory as we expect Klopp to maintain his unbeaten record against the Toffees.
