Everton vs Liverpool Match Preview
Everton will hope to catch Liverpool in the midst of their challenging Champions League quarterfinal, when they look to break their barren run in the Merseyside derby. This Everton vs Liverpool Premier League clash will be played at the Goodison Park on Saturday, April 7, so check out our Everton vs Liverpool prediction and betting tips.
The Toffees are currently in the middle of their longest winless run against their arch rivals. The last time Everton won against Liverpool was in October 2010 when they won 2-0. Ever since then, they have gone 16 games without a win. This season was supposed to be different for the hosts as investment was expected to bring change of fortunes. After a turbulent time at the beginning that once saw them close to the relegation zone, Everton have improved under Sam Allardyce to start this game ninth in the league after 32 games (40 pts, W11, D7, L14). They come into this Everton vs Liverpool contest with just two wins in five games (W2, L3). At home, they may have lost their last match to Manchester City, but that was their only loss in five (W3, D1, L1).
The biggest worry for the hosts will not just be their history, but also the current form of their visitors. Liverpool are fresh off a scintillating 3-0 win over City in the Champions League and will have one eye on the upcoming reverse fixture. However, the visitors start this Everton vs Liverpool as strong favourites. Jurgen Klopp knows that his side is still not clear at third (66 pts, W19, D9, L4) with Tottenham just two points behind, having played a game lesser. Reaching second is still a possibility, but there is no doubt that the Reds will have their eye on Champions League progress. Their last four trips saw Liverpool pick up three wins and should be confident of their chances in the Merseyside derby.

Everton vs Liverpool Prediction
Let’s leave history aside, this Liverpool side has so much riding on them currently that they should have no issues in brushing their derby rivals aside. Champions League distraction or not, the Reds should have no qualms in swatting aside their neighbours. Even though derbies are tough to predict, we expect the visitors to go back with at least one point, but they should win this one. When it comes to individual scorers, Salah should be a strong possibility to find the back of the net.
