The Liverpool Derby always brings lots of excitements, but it seems that it’s been a while since both Liverpool and Everton were this strong. The Reds are in the competition for the Premier League title, while the Toffees are hoping to get to a Champions League spot. All this means that we’re going to witness a thrilling match at the Anfield on Sunday afternoon. And if you want to bet on this game, make sure first to read the Liverpool vs Everton prediction & betting tips!
With just 2 points fewer than Manchester City, Liverpool are on the second spot of the Premier League. If Man City slip and Liverpool continue with their brilliant run, they can easily get to the top of the table. Speaking of their latest run, it’s been pretty impressive, particularly in the Premier League.
Liverpool are without a single defeat this season and have played draw only on 3 occasions. And those draws were against some pretty tough teams, including Chelsea, Manchester City, and most recently, Arsenal.
It seems that Jürgen Klopp has prioritized Premier League over Champions League, where they’re behind Napoli and PSG. Of course, they still have a chance to do well on that field as well. But, you can be sure that they won’t think too much about that this weekend – their minds are gonna be focused on the game against their city rivals.
And when it comes to their performances in Liverpool Derby, they’re more successful than Everton, although most of their recent duels finished as draws. Still, when their matches at the Anfield are concerned, Liverpool are much more successful. In fact, the Reds are without a city derby defeat at home in the 21st century!
Right now, Everton are at the 6th place in the Premier League, which is just amazing success, not only considering that the league’s as tough as it’s ever been, but also because the Toffees had serious problems with injuries early on.
In fact, during the first two months of the season, they had big injury problems with some of their key men. But, those problems don’t bother them anymore. And that’s the reason why they’ve been playing very well lately. Everton won 3 out of 5 previous Premier League games, while losing to Man United and playing draw with Chelsea.
Obviously, they’re not that good when faced with teams from the top of the table. But, they do have some amazing players in their team, in all parts of the pitch. The question is are they good enough to avoid losing to their city rivals? I honestly doubt it, but Everton are surely going to give their best in this game.

Liverpool vs Everton Prediction
In my opinion, Everton have a fantastic team; the problem is that their city rivals are even better. Liverpool have a fantastic team and they are in a fantastic form. And this goes double when it comes to their performances at home. This is why I expect the Reds to win this comfortably. Probably with at least a goal in Everton’s net before the half time.
