Liverpool are in great shape at the moment and there really couldn’t be a better time for them to be heading into a Merseyside derby. Jurgen Klopp’s men are undefeated in their last nine games across all competitions and they have been banging in the goals with reckless abandon with 32 scored during this unbeaten run. They put seven past Spartak Moscow in their midweek demolition of the Russian side to secure top-spot at the close of their Champions League group campaign and they will be in very high spirits when they face Everton at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
There is also something of an air of optimism at Everton at the moment with the Toffees grabbing themselves two much-needed Premier League wins following the announcement that Goodison Park would be welcoming Sam Allardyce into the managerial hot-seat. Everton responded to this news by thrashing West Ham United 4-0 and followed this up by winning 2-0 against Huddersfield Town last time out.
Can Allardyce make it three top-flight wins on the bounce by steering his side to a hugely important win at Anfield this weekend? He will almost certainly adopt the correct approach by fielding a weakened side in what is a dead-rubber of a match in the Europa League tonight thus keeping key players fresh for this weekend’s challenge, however it is hard to envisage the Toffees making the short journey home with anything to show for their efforts.

Liverpool have put their early-season slip-ups very much behind them now and they will be relishing the prospect of meeting the Toffees this weekend. Jurgen Klopp’s men have been solid on home turf with no defeats in front of their home fans and Everton are yet to win an away game in the Premier League this season. The Reds have won the last three Merseyside derby matches and haven’t endured a single defeat in fourteen meetings with their old adversaries. We don’t expect this record to come to an end on Sunday.
Liverpool look all set to secure local bragging rights as well as the all-important three points and we also expect a few goals along the way. All-but-one of Everton’s last five top-flight outings have returned four goals or more and four of Liverpool’s last six games have ended the same way. As such, we’re expecting something akin to a goal-fest at Anfield this weekend with the bookmakers going an excellent 13/8 on Liverpool to win and over 3.5 goals.
Talking of goal-scorers, Mohamed Salah is a tempting option on the anytime goalscorer market. The Egyptian striker has banged in eighteen goals for the Reds since his arrival at Anfield during the summer and given that he has scored twelve of these in his last eleven appearances, it would be no shock were he to find the net in his first Merseyside derby on Sunday.
