Liverpool v Everton FA Cup Prediction & Betting Tips – 5th January 2018

Liverpool

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.

Liverpool v Everton Prediction & Betting Tips, 10th December 2017

Liverpool

Liverpool v Everton Premier League Preview, 10th December 2.15pm

The Reds will be expected to deliver on home soil in the Merseyside derby given the contrasting seasons that the two Merseyside clubs have had this term. This will be an exciting encounter between them this season, especially after just having found out that they will be meeting in the Third Round of the FA Cup as well. Will Sam Allardyce rally Everton for a big performance at Anfield or will their away form let them down again? Liverpool are 1/4 with William Hill to take the win, with the draw at 19/4 and Everton out at 10/1.

Liverpool News and Form

There has been some really good form from Liverpool lately. They have kicked things up into a high gear recently as they have produced a fantastic W5 D1 record in their last six games. They have been scoring for fun as well, netting at least three goals in each of the five wins in that sequence of games. So it has been a tremendous response from them and they will go into this Merseyside derby full of confidence. Liverpool’s home form reads an unbeaten W4 D3 this season in the Premier League and they have won two of their last three at Anfield, the only blip a draw against Chelsea. Their last two home wins have both been by a 3-0 scoreline. In the William Hill correct score market, a Liverpool 3-0 is only an 8/1 poke while a 2-0 return for them is at 13/2 and the shortest priced option in the market. Mo Salah has been their outstanding forward this season and he is the 5/6 anytime goalscorer favourite. The Reds have the vastly superior scoring power to that of their rivals and they are a 3/1 to win this home fixture by a two goal margin and while their defence has been called into question at times this season, of the 19 league goals conceded this season, only two have been at Anfield.

Everton News and Form

So back to back wins and Everton are up in tenth place in the top flight. They have only lost one of their last five league games now (D3 D1 L1) but all of the successes in that sequence have come at home. So their away form is still highly questionable and they are looking for their first road win of the season having gone W0 D3 L4 away from Goodison Park. The Toffees have scored at least two goals now in four of their last five, putting together a five match scoring streak. Things have to looked at in context though because their back to back wins were at home against West Ham and Huddersfield, both sides who are struggling badly at the moment. Wayne Rooney is their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option for this one at 10/3. Everton have already conceded sixteen away goals in seven games this season, scoring just the five away from Goodison and they have not one clean sheet on their travels this term. They are going to be vulnerable and their defence has been shambolic all season. They have scored the opening goal in just one away game this season and six of their sixteen away goals conceded have come in the final fifteen minutes of matches. They have scored only one second half away goal all season which was an 89th minute equaliser at Brighton back in mid-October.

Liverpool v Everton Head to Head

Liverpool were dominant in last season’s league meetings, winning both games. They are unbeaten in their last six home games in the league against the Toffees (W4 D2) and are unbeaten in their last twelve home and away against their rivals (W6 D6). They have scored at least three goals in four of their last six home fixtures against teeth Toffees. Everton have failed to score in four of their last seven in the top flight against their rivals.

Who will win – Liverpool v Everton Predictions

Liverpool can win this even though Everton have landed back to back wins in the league going into this one. Those victories for the Toffees were at Goodison Park against struggling sides and have a lot to prove to show that they can hang with the better sides. Liverpool’s attack is going so well that they should open up the visitors and land a win by a good couple of goals.

Liverpool

Liverpool v Everton Premier League, 1st April 12.30pm

A big Merseyside derby will start off the Premier League weekend in some style then. What a game we have in store in this one with both of them running in some good form. Liverpool have had a great season on home soil in the league and they took a win at Goodison Park earlier in the season as well. But Everton are in great form at the moment however, they have failed to beat Liverpool in the last 12 attempts in the league. Liverpool are 8/13 for the win, with the draw at 14/5 and Everton at 9/2.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips

The Reds have the big head to head form going against Everton, remaining unbeaten in their last 12 league games against the Toffees, winning five of those. So there have been a lot of drawn matches between these two, which may have appeal to punters. Liverpool took a 1-0 win at Goodison Park earlier in the season and a Liverpool 1-0 correct score at Bet365 for Saturday’s game is a price of 15/2. Liverpool have been a good home side this season with a W10 D3 L1 record posted and they are on a three-match winning streak at Anfield in the league, with recent wins over both Spurs and Arsenal there. There is likely going to be goals in this one and over 2.5 goals is an 8/11 option. Liverpool have won their last three league games against Everton and the Reds are unbeaten in 14 Premier League games in this season’s current top 10 (W8 D6 L0). They have actually won more points against top ten opponents than they have against teams from the bottom half of the table. Daniel Sturridge, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are all around the 4/5 mark in the anytime goalscorer market.

Romelu Lukaku is a 6/4 Bet365 anytime goalscorer option for the derby. He is in cracking form at the moment and has five Premier League goals against Liverpool in his career. He has 21 league goals for the season and he has 11 goals in 10 league appearances in the 2017 calendar year. He also has 10 goals in the final 10 minutes of Premier League games this season. Everton have lost just one of their last twelve league games and are going well at the moment, with goals flying in all over the place. They have scored 17 goals in their last six league games. Both teams to score at Bet365 is a 3/4 shot but Everton have scored just one goal in their last four visits to Anfield and have failed to net in five of their last eight home and away games the Reds. Everton’s last Premier League win at Anfield was in September 1999 (W0 D8 L8 since) and two of their last three trips to Anfield have seen them suffer 0-4 defeats. This fixture has seen 21 red cards shown, more than any other Premier League fixture.

Who will win – Liverpool v Everton

Liverpool home win: It doesn’t matter what kind of form Everton seem to be running in, the Reds just seem to find a way to stick in there against them. Liverpool have bagged some big home wins recently against the Toffees, but they will be under pressure here. Look for the home side to win but both teams to score.

Liverpool are flying along with goals at the moment having scored twenty of them in their last seven league games. With the likes of Divock Origi, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge all coming good towards the end of the season than Liverpool are looking on top of their game at the moment.

But can Everton’s road-resilience keep the Reds from three points. Everton have only been beaten twice out on the road and their big attacking threat is Romelu Lukaku who will, no doubt, give a shaky Liverpool back line some issues from set plays in the air. It’s a big week of Premier League football betting and the Merseyside derby on Wednesday is one of the big highlights. Six of the last seven between these two have been drawn, will there be a winner in midweek?

Liverpool v Everton Premier League, 20th April

A ten gap difference separates the two Merseyside rivals in the Premier League standings heading into this derby match. Liverpool are the ones in ascendancy and they are going along in some nice form at the moment as well and still pushing for a top five finish. Everton’s fortunes have been below par this season for sure as they are still struggling to put wins on the board and are much closer to the drop zone in terms of points than they are the top five. The two played out a 1-1 draw earlier in the season at Goodison Park. Will there be a winner this time around? Liverpool are 7/10 for the win, with the draw at 3/1 and Everton at 9/2

Key Stats – Liverpool v Everton

The Reds are on a ten match unbeaten streak in Premier League Merseyside derbies

The last time Liverpool won back to back home league games was May 2015

Everton have managed to take just three points from their last six league games

Six of the last seven Merseyside derbies in the top flight have ended in a draw

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips

The Reds are running along nicely now with just the one loss in their last eight Premier League outings (W5 D2 L1) so a good end of season return for Jurgen Klopp. However, they still haven’t won back to back home games in the top flight this season but after a 4-1 triumph over Stoke in their last home game in the top flight, they are favourites to land the win on Wednesday. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four home games in the top flight and have lost just the one of their last nine games at Anfield in the league. They have some good form going as well in the Merseyside derby having gone unbeaten in their last ten Premier League games against the Toffees (W3 D7 L0). AS you can see there though there have been a lot of drawn matches between these two lately, in fact six of the last seven between these have been drawn.

So a 1-1 correct score wager for the game will return you odds of 7/1 with online betting site Stan James. There will be some appeal in that because two of the last three between them have ended that way, the other in that sequence being a 0-0. Liverpool are scoring goals at the moment though and they have scored 20 goals in their last seven games in the top flight, so ticking along at well over 2 goals per game. Christian Benteke has scored four goals in five Premier League games against Everton and he is out the picture with his knee problem. Fortunately Divock Origi is in good form and is 6/5 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Roberto Firmino (who has 8 goals in his last 10 league games) at 7/5. Daniel Sturridge is even money favorite though and he has scored in three of Liverpool’s last four league games. Liverpool v Everton is the fixture with the most red cards in Barclays Premier League history (20), but there have been none in the last eight meetings. You can take 3/1 on there being a red card in the game.

So Everton have taken just the three points from the last 18 available in the top flight, so more tough times for Roberto Martinez. The Toffees have won just one of their last eight Premier League games now and that was against Aston Villa. They have drawn their last two out on the road though and they have been tough away from home this season. They have lost just two away games all season and just one of their last eleven out on the road in the top flight. Going back to that 1-1 scoreline, two of Everton’s last three league games have ended that way. Romelu Lukaku has scored five goals in his last seven Premier League appearances against Liverpool and is 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Toffees have just the one clean sheet in their last eight league games and aren’t reliable at the back at all. Both teams to score is 7/10 and over 2.5 goals is backable at 4/6.

Who will win – Liverpool v Everton Predictions

You would have to roll with the Reds in this one. They are looking a confident side and Klopp’s influence is really starting to show through. They have plenty of goals in them at the moment, whereas Everton are still trying to find a shred of consistency. Liverpool have form in the Merseyside derby to not lose, but push it out for a win for them.

Liverpool v Everton Prediction 27th September 2014

Liverpool

Liverpool v Everton Premier League, 27th September

An important Merseyside derby from the context that both need a win to potentially kick start their seasons after some disappointing form. The Reds are looking to respond from back to back Premier League losses, while Everton have been plagued with big inconsistencies this season. Big three points on offer again, as well as pride of course, in one of the Premier League’s biggest fixtures. With just one win in their last 15 visits to Anfield in the Premier League, Everton go as 3/1 outsiders, with Liverpool trading as 4/5 favourites and the draw at 11/4 with Bet365.

Goals seem the order of the day for this fixture, however, just in case defenses decide to show up, there is great 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance on all matches at online betting site Bet365. Place a Correct Score, Scorecast or Half Time/Full Time bet and if the game ends without a goal then you will get lost stake refunds on those markets. New customers registering an account with Bet365 can get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips

Neither look as if they have the kind of defence which will carry them far this season. It makes it tough to call the outcome of this game. Liverpool are at home and are naturally taking some favouritism, not only because of their home record against the Toffees in the Premier League, but because of Everton’s blow up against Swansea during the League Cup in the week. There is the possibility that Daniel Sturridge will be back for Liverpool, who have badly been missing his pace and input. Sturridge has struck 36 goals and 52 appearances for Liverpool, and with Mario Balotelli looking completely out of place at Anfield, the Reds need the England man, who is even money in the anytime goalscorer market.

Liverpool really need to get something going after back to back losses in the top flight. That’s totalling up to three defeats in their first five games now. Different problems have raised their heads too, because they lacked any kind of penetration in the final third against Villa at Anfield, and then against West Ham, their lack of defensive midfield cover left their back line heavily exposed against a positive approach to the game from the Hammers. Since the start of the season, Liverpool’s defending at corners and set pieces has looked woeful. The positive of that is that it should be a highly entertaining match, at Liverpool’s last three games have gone over 2.5 goals, and five of Everton’s last six have gone over the mark as well.

So a goal fest is expected thanks to two poor defences. Everton though have only managed to net five goals in their last 12 visits to Anfield in the Premier League, but they look to be in the kind of scoring form this season to net in the game. Everton have averaged over two goals per game this term. All consistency has gone from Everton, who are playing good football, as seen in their fantastic Europa League win over Wolfsburg, but how they turned around to lose against Crystal Palace in the league was a bit of a mystery. Again, it is down to defensive issues, but they have still produced more up front than Liverpool have managed to do without Sturridge. Everton were hammered 3-0 at Swansea in the week in the League Cup.

Up front for Everton, Romelu Lukaku is a 2/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market, with Samuel Eto’o at 5/2. Really the way that Liverpool’s back line has performed, Everton should get chances, and well worth backing Both Teams To Score in the game. The last two Merseyside derbies produced 10 goals between them last season, so expect more of the same. Again, looking at poor defences, it is probably worth pushing the game to over 3.5 goals over the 90 minutes. Everton’s biggest problems have come at home this season, producing a W1 D1 L0 record on the road. Seven of their eleven goals they have scored this season have come in the first half and if they strike early, this game could ignite.

Who will win – Liverpool v Everton Predictions

So tough to pick a winner. Given Liverpool have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League home games against the Toffees, they are the ones to back. However, there is not a lot of confidence in backing either, and both are too inconsistent to warrant looking at the draw option. Lean towards the goals markets and go over 3.5 and hope that the two poor defences do show up.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Preview
The midweek Merseyside derby is one of the highlights of football betting action. Big points on offer here as just two places and one point separates the two sides in the Premier League, with Liverpool holding onto fifth.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips:
The two sides produced at thriller at Goodison Park earlier in the season, with the Merseyside rivals battling it out to a 3-3 draw. That has been the third successive draw in a row between the two sides, and given how close they are in the Premier League standings, that may be an option worth covering. Right off the bat, this one has the look of having goals and you can back Both Teams To Score at a price of 4/7, or take a shot at the game going over 2.5 goals for a price of 4/6 as well. Four of the last five meetings between the two (in all competitions) have gone over the mark, so pretty good value. In the goalscorer market, it is going to be worth looking towards Luis Suarez as well, because he has netted in three of his four Barclays Premier League Merseyside derby appearances. Suarez is trading at 4/5 in the Anytime Goalscorer market, with Daniel Sturridge at a price of Evens.

The Reds have been excellent at home this season in the Premier League, posting a W9 D1 L1 record so far and having scored at a rate of over 2.5 goals per game on home soil. They have conceded at a rate of 0.73 goals per home game, with almost 64% of their games going over 2.5 goals. Another thing to push the game over 2.5 goals is that the Reds are struggling with injuries at the back, which should lead Everton to big chances. Liverpool have been leading at half time in 64% of their league matches this season, so perhaps worth looking at to be winning at half time for a price of 11/8 with Bet Victor. Everton haven’t won at Anfield since back in 1999. It is a miserable record which Roberto Martinez will be hoping ends on Tuesday night, and he may be looking for a big contribution from Romelu Lukaku, who has scored four goals in four Premier League appearances against the Reds. He is trading at 2/1 in the Anytime Goalscorer market.

Everton have only managed to win one of their last 14 Premier League fixtures against Liverpool, losing seven in that run. But at least they have stemmed the flow of losses, with three consecutive draws. The Toffees have won none and lost six of their last 13 Premier League visits to Anfield. Martinez has Everton going ever so well and they have lost just one of their last 14 in the Premier League. There has only been the one away defeat for them in the top flight this season, but have drawn their last two away from Goodison. Three of their last four away games have been drawn 1-1 and that may tempt punters for a Correct Score punt at a price of 15/2 with Bet Victor. Everton, even with their history at Anfield, have nothing to be afraid of here. They will know that if they push, Liverpool are vulnerable at the back.

Prediction
Two evenly looked matching sides, Everton look the defensively stronger side while Liverpool have the bigger goal scoring threats going forward. Both Teams To Score looks a great option in this, but the way Everton are playing, backing them in a Everton – Draw Double Chance at Even money looks decent.

Liverpool v Everton Betting Preview
A great Merseyside derby and the pressure will all be on the Toffees as they seek valuable points to try and squeeze their way into a European spot. Everton go into the game five points ahead of their bitter rivals, but for the Reds, the loss of Luis Suarez didn’t seem to affect them too much, as they thumped Newcastle with the banned Uruguayan.

Liverpool v Everton Recommended Bet:
The Reds came to life in a big way last weekend in their first match without Suarez. A win over their rivals would take them to within two points of the Toffees on Sunday. Earlier in the season, Liverpool earned themselves a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park, taking a two goal lead in the match before being pegged back. Liverpool’s home form this season has seen them post a W8 D5 L4 record for the season. They have scored at an average rate of 1.88 goals per game, but of course, Suarez has been responsible for a lot of those. Defensively the Reds have looked pretty solid, conceding at a rate of under a goal per game at Anfield. Their current home form is standing up, unbeaten in their last four and just one defeat in their last seven. Interestingly, in the two matches they have played without Suarez this season, Liverpool have scored nine goals.

Three of their last four matches in the Premier League though have been draws and that may be a good route to go with your betting for this edition. Liverpool have lost only one of the last 12 Premier League Merseyside derbies now and so they do seem to have a bit of a grip on Everton. If David Moyes’ men want to keep their European hopes alive, they are going to need to buck a poor trend at Anfield. They have lost five of the last eight there and are without a win in a dozen Premier League trips to the home of their neighbours now. Everton for some reason have generally struggled when going up against the big four in the Premier League, something which has been holding them back. In 44 away matches against the big four, Everton have not recorded a win.

In their last 12 visit to Merseyside, Everton have posted a W0 D4 L7 record. Heading into the weekend, they are three pointsadriftof Spurs in fifth place, having played a game more already. Still, the Toffees have lost just one of their last eight in the top flight, but while their home form has been immaculate, they have struggled on the road. They are without an away win in their last six matches on the road now, drawing three and losing three. So they are in good standing, and they have failed to score in their last two on the road. Everton have a W4 D8 L5 record away from home in the Premier League this season, not great at all and another reason why a draw may be worth riding.

Everton have a great resiliency about them, but they can’t seem to find a way to beat Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League. A draw really doesn’t sound like a bad option to roll with in this one at a price of 12/5 with online bookmaker Ladbrokes.

Liverpool v Everton – Saturday, April 14th 2012 – FA Cup Semi Final

Liverpool

Liverpool V Everton

Liverpool Preview: Well, thankfully league form is hard to translate over to cup matches, which is great because that is where the excitement of knock-out competition comes from. Liverpool, of course, have been pretty poor in the Premier League, winning just two of their last ten games. While boss Kenny Dalglish seems to be immune to any pressure from the board, it looks as if the £100 million spend during 2011 to build a side to challenge for the EPL, looks to have been converted only into a good cup side. Because Liverpool are a very good cup side, all built from keeping things tight at the back. Liverpool have produced patches of very good football this season, and while some will argue that they have been unlucky, like in the recent league draw against Aston Villa, other will say that their forwards have not been up to a high enough standard. Either way, Liverpool have battled their way through to winning the Carling Cup on penalties against Championship side Cardiff, and also into the FA Cup semi finals, at the expense of Manchester United along the way. Another piece of silverware would save Liverpool’s season right now.

So Liverpool haven’t produced great winning form in the Premier League, but does that make them underdogs for the FA Cup semi final v Everton? No. The bookies are still fancying the Red side of Merseyside to make it through to the final, and that is borne out of their good Cup form this season, as well as having beaten Everton twice this season in the league. After a 2-0 win at Goodison Park early in the season, Liverpool doubled up with a 3-0 win over their rivals back at Anfield. Captain Steven Gerrard netted an inspirational hat-trick on that occasion, while Suarez and Carroll scored the goals at Goodison Park. Bottom line is, there hasn’t been enough contribution from any of the Liverpool forwards this season. Luis Suarez often looks to be in de separate need of some quality support, but Liverpool do a solid job through the middle of the park, driven by Gerrard. They just need more finishing power and they would be in a much stronger position. Liverpool will be without either of their two main goalkeepers who are both suspended, meaning Brad Jones steps in between the stakes after making his début in midweek after Doni was sent off against Blackburn in the Premier League.

Everton Preview: While the Toffees are just one point above Liverpool in the Premier League, they are in a position of having a successful season. It is all relative, because Everton have not had the kind of spending power that Liverpool have had, and the expectations on the Toffees are never as high. But once again, the shrewd work of David Moyes has level Everton into a strong position, and now they have a chance to cap a solid season off with a piece of silverware. But Everton have lost against Liverpool twice this season, so what is giving punters a reason to back Moyes’ men. Well, it all comes down to form, which is firmly in the court of Everton. So it is all in a fine balance for the FA Cup semi final. Everton are uneaten in their four last Premier League matches, winning three, while Liverpool have only managed one win in their last four. So form is with Everton without question, but they seem to come unstuck against Liverpool for no apparent reason. It has happened twice in the Premier League, so can they redress the balance a bit with a win at Wembley on Saturday?

Back going back to form, if the league table was based on performance since January 1st this season, Everton would be fourth with 28 points, and Liverpool would be in the relegation zone, 19th with just twelve points. Only Wolves have delivered worse league form than Liverpool since the turn of the year. Everton’s positives besides form? Well that will be from Tim Cahill getting back into top form, and the arrival of Nikica Jelavic. While Liverpool were off spending £35 million on Andy Carroll, David Moyes snapped up former Rangers striker for just £5, and it is Jelavic who is shining. Carroll has netted just four goals in 31 league matches this season, while the Croatian, signed in the January transfer window, has four in eight. A big contrast there, and he will likely be the pivotal man around which Everton will mount their FA Cup challenge. Jelavic has class and control and the Toffees will look for him to deliver and will be buoyed by Liverpool’s goalkeeper crisis.

Odds: Liverpool 6/4, Draw 9/4, Everton 15/8 at Bet365

FA Cup Stat Attack:

  • There have been 16 Merseyside derbies in the FA Cup, Liverpool have winning through on 9 occasions to Everton’s 7
  • The overall head to head stands at 87-66 in Liverpool favour
  • This is the fifth FA Cup Merseyside derby semi final, the records stands at 3-1 to Liverpool
  • On all three occasions that Liverpool beat Everton in the semi, then went on to lose the final
  • Liverpool have won seven of their last eight FA Cup semi finals
  • Everton hold the record for the most eliminations from the FA Cup at the semi final stage (11)

Recommended Bet: A very interesting and evenly balanced match lined up. Do you go with Liverpool’s apparent dominance over Everton, or go with the current form of the Toffees? Jelavic or Suarez? Probably worth doing down the method of victory route, where both teams are superb value at 12/1 with Bet365 to win through in extra time.

Liverpool v Everton – Tuesday, 13th March 2012

Premiership Betting

Liverpool v Everton

Liverpool Preview: The Reds are in a bad slump of form at the moment, and as the season wears on, it becomes more and more evident that they don’t have enough fire-power going forward. They failed to take home advantage against Tottenham recently, which ended up in a draw. They outplayed Arsenal and couldn’t get a second goal, which cost them three points. Then, on Saturday they again misfired as they went down 1-0 at a hard working Sunderland. It really is getting to the point where two goals against the Reds is pretty much going to secure a comfortable victory. It is not that Liverpool play badly, they have put in some great performances, but there is a lack up front, which Luis Suarez can’t cover up all on his own. So now on the back of three straight Premier League losses, which has scuppered plans for an assault on a Champions League place, Liverpool host an in form Everton in the Merseyside derby. Surely a Merseyside derby should get them a bit more fired up?

If they could just start finishing the chances they create there really wouldn’t be too much wrong with Liverpool. But Craig Bellamy and Luis Suarez have been the most productive for Liverpool this season with just six goals each. Not enough by a long mile.So while Liverpool are generally a pretty solid defensive side, they aren’t covering up their mistakes at the back when going forward at the moment. Still, Liverpool will still edge this one as favourites, because they have only lost one game at home this season. However, alongside that there have been eight draws and only four wins, so that is the reason why they aren’t fighting for Europe. There have been two draws and a loss in their last three Anfield matches, and defeat against their neighbours Everton would really frustrate the Kop even more. Liverpool are averaging just 1.15 goals per game at home this season and they are there for the taking. It is this disappointing home form, the not taking chances which is the Liverpool frustration factor.

Everton Preview:In contrast to Liverpool, Everton are in great shape at the moment, beating Tottenham on the weekend, and that has come on top of wins over Chelsea and Manchester City, and the Toffees are on an seven game unbeaten run in the Premier League. The extra pressure in this Merseyside derby, is that with a win, Everton can leap frog Liverpool by one point in the standings. That is a huge incentive for the visitors, who are playing well at the moment, and victory at Anfield would see Everton jump up into seventh spot in the league. It is true that Everton don’t score a lot of goals either and there isn’t much between the two teams in goals stats. Everton have scored 28, Liverpool 30. Everton have conceded 28, Liverpool 26. So it really all points to Tuesday’s match being a very close, cagey encounter.

The only slight difference at the moment is that Everton are finding match winners from somewhere, and it was Nikola Jelavic who popped up with the winner against Spurs on his first start. So he could well be worth looking out for in the Goalscorer markets. It has been another good season for Everton under David Moyes, who is touted as being a possible Chelsea manager in the summer, and the Toffees continue to punch above their weight. there is 2-0 home defeat against Liverpool to avenge in the premier League, and while Everton are going strongly, there hasn’t been a win on the road for them in four matches. Everton have drawn three and lost one of their last four away matches, and they average just one goal per game. Everton have a W4 D4 L5 away record for the season.

Match Odds
Liverpool 7/10, Draw 13/5, Everton 4/1 at Bet Victor

Form: Liverpool WDLLL, Everton WDWDW

Stat Attack
Everton’s last three away matches have ended in a 1-1 draw.
Liverpool have had five 1-1 results at Anfield this season
Last season this fixture produced, yes, a draw (2-2).
Everton haven’t beaten Liverpool at Anfield since the 1999/2000 Premiership season

Recommended Bet
Several ways to go on this one, but it could just be worth a Winning Margin bet on Liverpool to win by 1 for 5/2 at Bet365. Hard to see the match being any further apart from that.
