Everton v Liverpool Prediction - Preview
Everton are currently at a lowly 13th in the Premier League table. They picked up their 4th loss in 5 games when they bowed to Brentford 1-0. Ivan Toney successfully converted his penalty in the 25th minute, following Andros Townsend’s high challenge on Frank Onyeka. The Toffees then tried to level soon after, but Salomon Rondon’s effort was saved by Alvaro Fernandez. Jordan Pickford prevented a 2-0 deficit by saving Bryan Mbeumo’s shot, while Alex Iwobi and Abdoulaye Doucoure had the best chances for the Merseysiders, who ultimately had to concede the game. Despite their losing streak, manager Rafael Benitez maintains that he could turn his side around. Will home advantage give the boys in blue the advantage against their red-hot crosstown rivals?
- Everton’s 0-2 victory against Liverpool in their last meeting ended their 20-game winless run against the Reds. They’ve not won back-to-back games in the league Merseyside derbies since a sweep in the 1984/85 season.
- The Toffees have lost just one of their midweek (Tue-Thu) EPL games (W7 D5), bowing to Manchester City in February this year.
Liverpool are currently 3rd in the EPL table, two points clear of Chelsea and just one below Manchester City. Their last league game saw them obliterate Southampton 4-0 at Anfield. Diogo Jota’s first-half brace saw them go ahead of the Saints, with each goal being assisted by Andrew Robertson and Mohamed Salah respectively. Thiago Alcantara added in one more before the break as he effectively fired past Alex McCarthy. Virgil van Dijk completed the scoreline as he made a low volley on Trent Alexander-Arnold’s cross. Entering the Merseyside derby, manager Jurgen Klopp has claimed that the Toffees are a “very physical” side, with Van Dijk and Thiago suffering crucial injuries during the October 2020 edition. Could this motivate the Reds to give it their all this Thursday?
- Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 10 EPL away matches against Everton since losing 2-0 in October 2010. But 8 of their last 9 visits have ended in a draw, including their last 4.
- The Reds have scored at least twice in each of their last 17 matches across all competitions. This is the joint longest run for an English top-flight side (the other being Sunderland in in 1927).

Everton v Liverpool Prediction - Final Thoughts
While the most recent home editions of the derby have been kind to Everton, there is a huge disparity between them and Liverpool with regards to their form this season. With Holgate out with a red card, and names like Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Yerry Mina still nursing injuries, the Toffees have a tall task ahead of them. The Reds are simply playing superb football at the moment, and are no doubt favourites to end a winless spell at Goodison Park this time around. On that note, let’s take a look at our prediction.
