All Everton v Liverpool game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - along with the latest match odds.
Everton, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 4-2 Premier League triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion.
In that match, Everton managed 43% possession and 11 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. For Everton, the goalscorers were Dominic Calvert-Lewin (16'), Yerry Mina (45') and James Rodríguez (52', 70'). Brighton & Hove Albion had 11 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Neal Maupay (41') and Yves Bissouma (92') scored for Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Toffees have been conceding pretty frequently of late, but they’ve also found ways to convert their own chances into goals. Over their last 6 matches, The Toffees have seen their goal breached in 5 of them as well as scoring in 6 of those games.
A look at their previous results shows us that Everton:
- have not won against Liverpool in their last 19 league games. They'll surely be desperate to put an end to that run.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Aston Villa in Premier League action, Liverpool and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.
In that match, Liverpool managed 70% possession and 14 shots on goal with 8 of them on target. The only player to score for Liverpool was Mohamed Salah (33', 60'). Aston Villa had 18 shots on goal with 11 on target. Ollie Watkins (4', 22', 39'), John McGinn (35'), Ross Barkley (55') and Jack Grealish (66', 75') scored for Aston Villa.
Indicating their appetite for eventful matches, we’ve had goals 31 times in the last 6 games in which Liverpool have sent out their troops, giving an average of 5.17 goals for each fixture. Opposition teams have hit 13 of those goals. Having said that, we’ll just have to find out if the trend will be maintained in this next game or not.
Looking at their past form shows that Liverpool:
- haven't beaten Everton when they've played them away from home in the last 3 league matches.
- remain undefeated by Everton when they've played them away from home in the last 9 matches in the league. A highly impressive record on the road against them.

Team News: Everton
Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles tendon rupture) and Cenk Tosun (Cruciate Ligament Surgery) won’t be playing for Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti.
Team News: Liverpool
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has a number of players out of action. Sadio Mané (Corona virus), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Knee Injury) and Alisson (Shoulder Injury) are not ready for selection.
We’re of the view that Everton have the firepower to find the net against this Liverpool team, although just one goal might not quite prevent defeat.
We therefore reckon that it will be a narrow 1-2 winning score for Liverpool at the end of the match. It should be a decent one.
