Liverpool vs Everton prediction comes before the 1/32-finals of the English FA Cup. This game takes place on Sunday, January 5, at the Anfield Stadium in Liverpool, England. In this match preview, we bring you the betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of city rivals.
Liverpool vs Everton Betting Tips
The Merseyside Derby is happening on Sunday. This time, it’s not a part of the Premier League but FA Cup. Liverpool are doing extremely well in the Premier League, where the Reds are at the very top of the table. But, this team is super-ambitious. Winning the league is not enough for them. They have set their eyes on the Champions League as well. The same goes for the FA Cup.
It’s still a long road to the FA Cup trophy, but you can be sure that they’re going to be very motivated to get ahold of it. This means that they are very eager to win Sunday’s match. Another incentive for the Reds is that they’re playing against their city rivals, Everton.
Liverpool have a really good score with Everton. In fact, the last time they lost to the Toffees was back in 2010. And the last time Everton beat them at the Anfield was back in 1999!
Another reason why Liverpool will do all they can to win this match is that FA Cup games are replayed if the result is a draw after 90 minutes. Considering that the Reds have had a pretty busy schedule over the festive season, they surely don’t want to add another match to the fixture list.
Everton, on the other hand, are probably more eager to focus on improving their position in the Premier League; FA Cup is not their number 1 focus. After a series of poor results, they sacked Marco Silva and appointed Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager.
With the legendary Italian coach, they’ve been pretty solid, even though they lost to Man City in the last Premier League round. They play Brighton at home next week and that game is their priority. Of course, this doesn’t mean that they will come to the Anfield waving a white flag. Still, they probably won’t be too motivated to win it, especially if that would mean risking injuries and ruining their fitness.

Liverpool Form and Latest News
The Reds have been superb this entire season in almost all competitions. They did get knocked out of Carabao Cup, but the reason for that is that their first-teams squad was in Qatar, where they won the FIFA Club World Cup. They do have some injury problems, but most of their key men are fit and ready for the Merseyside Derby.

With Carlo Ancelotti at the helm, the Toffees look strong. Still, they are not at the same level as their city rivals Liverpool. They do have the right to hope for a respectable position in the Premier League table, but their FA Cup journey probably ends on Sunday.
