Liverpool v Everton FA Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 5th January 20184th January 2018 / lee
Liverpool v Everton FA Cup, 5th January 7.45pm
It is an epic FA Cup tie set for Friday night to start the third round. It is a Merseyside derby to look forward to as the Toffees make the short trip across the city to take on Liverpool. The two have already played out a 1-1 league draw at Anfield this season and this will be the first FA Cup meeting between the rivals since April 2012, a semi-final which Liverpool won in dramatic style. Liverpool are 2/5 to win this with the draw at 7/2 and Everton out at 13/2.
Liverpool v Everton FA Cup Betting Tips
The Reds are strong odds-on favourites to get the win on the board in this one and that is understandable. Liverpool are unbeaten on home soil across all competitions this season but they have had their frustrating drawn results in a W9 D6 record at Anfield this season. They have won their last two games there though and while they have taken a lot of praise for their scoring this season once again, defensively they have been pretty rock solid at home this term. They have collected nine clean sheets in their fifteen home matches and two in their last three (one goal conceded). Liverpool to win to nil at William Hill because of that wouldn’t be a bad option to consider for the FA Cup clash. In nine of their home games this season they have scored at least two goals and of them, seven were at least three goals.
They have plenty of scoring power at their disposal and none more prolific at the moment than Mo Salah who is the even-money anytime goalscorer favourite at William Hill. He did get Liverpool’s goal in the 1-1 league draw against the Toffees back in December. Liverpool dominated that game but couldn’t break their opponents. The Reds are unbeaten in their last fifteen games against Everton in all competitions now (W7 D8). From previous FA Cup clashes, Liverpool are 10-7 up with six drawn matches between them in the competition. The last time that they were paired up in the FA Cup third round was back in the 2008/09 season with a replay needed after a 1-1 draw at Anfield. Everton won that replay 1-0 to go on to reach the final that season where they lost to Chelsea. In the correct score market at William Hill, another 1-1 draw returns a price of 15/2 while the shortest priced option available there is a Liverpool 2-0 at a 6/1 quote.
The Toffees have fallen out of form again a little bit with no wins in their last four matches played (D2 L2). The goals have dried up completely again for them as they have managed just the one goal in their last four as well. Under 2.5 goals at William Hill for the fixture is probably not too bad of an option really. The away form overall of Everton this season has been pretty well below par having only collected three victories all season on their travels in a W3 D6 L8 record. Two of those three wins have come inside their last five road games though and Everton have taken a clean sheet in three of their last five away games. Wayne Rooney made his return against Manchester United recently in the Premier League and he is a 3/1 anytime goalscorer for the game and goes into action as Everton’s clear top goalscorer this season. Once again the Toffees will need a big game from him.
Who will win – Liverpool v Everton FA Cup Predictions
Liverpool to win to nil may well have some decent appeal in this one. Everton have been struggling for goals again at the moment and the Reds have the superior goal scoring quality which should pull them through. Back the Reds to get the job done.
