The Betting

Match Result:

Liverpool 3/10

Draw 19/4

Everton 9/1

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Everton arrive in much better shape than they were in a couple of weeks back but this derby away from home comes plenty early enough in the Allardyce reign. The visitors have yet to keep a clean sheet away from home but those 2 wins with 6 goals scored last week should boost confidence amongst the strikers and I fancy they can contribute to the scoring here.

Bet: Both teams to score? (yes) at 15/20
