Liverpool vs Everton first half/second half tips – 2018/19 EPL betting


Liverpool will be hoping to maintain their close proximity with Manchester City, if not reduce it, when they play host to Everton at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

The match will be one of two local derbies to take place in the English Premier League this Sunday, with the other being an early kick off between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds upheld their pursuit of leaders Manchester City with a 3-0 win in Watford last weekend. Denied a way through by the hosts for more than an hour, Jurgen Klopp’s side finally broke the deadlock though Mohamed Salah with a goal that involved Liverpool’s fluid attacking trio.

Having received the ball from Roberto Firmino on the left flank with a lovely touch, Sadio Mane crossed the ball back to the charging Salah who simply tapped the opener into the back of the net in the 67th minute.

Increasingly becoming Liverpool’s free kick hero, Trent Alexander-Arnold gave the Reds some much needed breathing space with a sublimely stuck free kick that glided all the way into the top corner from 25-yards; this coming after Firmino was fouled by defender Adrian Mariappa. It was the Englishman’s fourth goal for Liverpool in all competitions, and his second from free-kicks.

Andrew Robertson—who shrewdly avoided a sliding tackle by Etienne Capoue—made a brilliant run on the left flank before cutting it back to Sadio Mane who was radiantly denied by goalkeeper Ben Foster. Firmino was however alive to the rebound, as the Brazilian forward stuck a clean header to round up an impressive victory on the road.

The triumph ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s charges are now unbeaten in a stirring 13 league matches this season, and have amassed 33 points; the most number of points collected by Liverpool at this point of the season since the inception of the Premier League era.

The Reds are as such still breathing down Manchester City’s necks, as only two points separates them from sitting at the summit of the league.

Everton climbed up to sixth in the Premier League standings after their 1-0 win over Cardiff City last Saturday. The only goal of the encounter, a tap in by Gylfi Sigurdsson, came moments before the hour mark after goalkeeper Neil Etheridge had thwarted Theo Walcott’s effort from going in.

Defender Joe Gomez could be fit enough for selection having been ruled out of the win at Vicarage Road due to an ankle problem, but Adam Lallana and Dominic Solanke remain a doubt after the duo missed the midweek trip to Paris in the Champions League.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain however remains the only long term absentee from the squad with an anterior cruciate Ligament injury.

Liverpool vs. Everton betting prediction

Climbing into the top six is certainly a massive shot in the arm for Everton ahead of their short trip across Stanley Park, but Liverpool are credible title contenders and should be able to see out their opponents in the Merseyside derby.

Be that as it may, stakes are much higher in their midweek Champions League encounter against Ligue One holders Paris Saint-Germain, as the French champions, Liverpool, and Serie A outfit Napoli could still make it to the knock out stages with a win.

Seeing as Liverpool will be working at full strength in their midweek European encounter, the Reds could possibly labor in the opening half of the Merseyside derby.
