Liverpool

 

Liverpool thrashed Manchester United 4-0 at Anfield on Tuesday, Manchester City were 3-0 winners at home to Brighton a day later so it's as you were in the title race. City's next game is at home to Watford on Saturday so the chances are their lead over Liverpool at the top the standings will stretch from 1 point to 4.

Liverpool have a better goal difference and after this their run in comprises of the following games; Newcastle (a), Spurs (h), Villa (a), Southampton (a), Wolves (h). They will also contest a UCL semi final against Villarreal over 2 legs.

 

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 13 league games with 11 wins and 2 draws and they haven't lost a league game at Anfield this season (13 wins, 3 draws).

They have also booked an FA Cup final date (with Chelsea) whom they beat in the League Final earlier this season so a haul of 4 trophy's remains a possibility.

 

Liverpool can be backed at 17/10 to win the EPL title this season with City 9/20 favourites.

 

Everton

 

Fourth bottom Everton are just 1 point clear of third bottom Burnley although they have played 1 game fewer. A 1-0 home win over Manchester United followed by a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester has kept them out of the drop zone but with just 1 win, 3 draws and 11 defeats from 15 road trips it is their away form causing the most alarm.

 

After this Everton's run in comprises of Chelsea (h), Leicester (a), Watford (a), Brentford (h), Palace (h), Arsenal (a).

 

Recent Head to Head

 

The first league meeting this season was staged at Goodison Park in early December and Liverpool won it 4-1 with Salah scoring twice.

 

Last season's league meetings saw the teams draw 2-2 at Goodison and Everton won 2-0 at Anfield at a time when Liverpool were badly out of sorts.

 

 

The Betting

 

Liverpool are currently 1 / 5 to win the game with the draw at 6.25/1 and Everton can be backed at 13/1

 

A game of 3 goals or more is priced at 9/20 and it's 11/10 for both teams to score.

 

Mo Salah is 5/2 to score the first goal and 13/20 to score any time

 

Liverpool are 8/10 to score 3 goals or more

The Verdict:

 

Liverpool came out firing and scored early against Manchester United and I take the view they will have Everton on the back foot early doors.

It's a 1 sided betting heat so the exotics are where I'm heading with Liverpool taken to score over 1.5 goals in the first half and I will have a nibble at 3-0 by full time.

 

Bets: Liverpool 1st half goals over 1.5 at 16/10

Correct score Liverpool win 3-0 at 6.25/1
