Liverpool are favourites coming into this clash and will undoubtedly be looking to make their mark with a win.

Liverpool vs Everton Predictions
This is a derby that has been all one-way business for quite some time now. Even in the best of their forms, Everton have found themselves short. At Anfield, the record is even better for Liverpool as they have not lost since 1999, and have won ten of the 20 meetings since then. Even with heavy rotation, Liverpool should have it easy and progress to the next round, but they shouldn’t be many goals, so under 2.5 goals looks like a good betting tip.
