If you’re looking for Everton vs Liverpool prediction and betting tips, you’re at the right place! We’re now going to discuss Everton’s chances to cause an upset and beat the current Premier League table leaders Liverpool. Can Toffees snatch some points from their city rivals at the Goodson Park in the Merseyside Derby? Let’s find out!
The Toffees are at the 9th place on the Premier League table, which isn’t bad, but their ambitions are even higher. Sure, getting among the top 6 seems like a mission impossible, but there’s still a good chance to get to the 7th place. And that place could get them a place in the Europa League next season. The problem is that there are several other teams who have basically the same plan.
But, getting to a good position on the table is not the only reason why Everton are going to take this match super-seriously. This is the Merseyside Derby, one of the biggest rivalries on the planet and the Toffees would love to mess the plans of their arch rival. Even if they managed to knock one point off Liverpool this Sunday, the Reds would lose the table leadership.
And Everton manager Marco Silva probably has personal reasons why he wants his team to do well in this match. There’s a rumor that the club management isn’t too pleased with his work this season. Although he probably won’t get sacked anytime soon, the question is whether Everton have him in their long-term plans.
But, that could change easily if he and his boys surprised the pundits and won themselves some points against Liverpool. They were very close to getting a point in their previous duel, which was played at the Anfield. The score was 0:0 until the 6th minute of the stoppage time when Divock Origi scored the winner.
The Reds mustn’t stop winning because Manchester City are breathing by their neck, patiently waiting for them to slip. Considering how good they were in the previous round, their form doesn’t seem like is going to drop anytime soon.
In the last round of the Premier League, they destroyed Watford 5:0, a team that’s currently one spot above Everton. We saw Liverpool performing brilliantly in that game, which did surprise some people who thought their form has started to drop.
The thing is that they did have some problems since the start of the year. Actually, before beating Watford, Liverpool played draw in 4 out of their previous 5 matches. And one of those was the draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
Speaking of the Champions League, it seems that Jurgen Klopp wants to prioritize the Premier League title, which explains a lot. It also suggests that Liverpool are going to give all they got in Sunday’s game, without even thinking about their trip to Germany which happens in 10 days.

Everton vs Liverpool Prediction
Liverpool are coming to Goodison Park to grab all three points, but the home crowd can give Everton a lot of boosts to try and cause a sensation. I don’t think they’ll actually make it, but they definitely seem capable of scoring a goal. Will that is enough to win points against Liverpool? I don’t think so…
