Today is the big Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool. The big enemies go out at 18:15 at Goodison Park Stadium. The hosts largely do not fight for anything but will certainly play for victory to confuse the bets of their opponent. The guests are heading for the title and need the three points at any price.
Everton is in the middle of the table with 36 points and is virtually neither in danger of falling nor has the chance to fight for places to participate in Europe. And this season, “Caramelles” failed to make any more solid performance, despite the money the club threw for selection in the summer.
Meanwhile, Liverpool has returned to the top of the standings and has no intention of going down. The lead of the reds ahead of Manchester City is however too fragile – 1 point. For this reason, Jürgen Klopp alumni are literally not entitled to any wrong steps.
In the first semi-season of Anfield, Liverpool won with a minimum of 1 : 0, but the game was quite disputed and the success of the hosts came only in the added time. Now we can expect a new strong collision, the reds being the favorite paper, but that should not be reassured.
Both teams met 232 times in all tournaments, with Liverpool favoring 93 wins, 73 draws and 66 losses. In recent years, the “Caramel” situation in the derby is not pink, with no win in the last 16 games, with 7 draws and 9 defeats.
Today, Everton will be without Leyton Bains, who is injured. Kurt Zuma, however, returns after serving a penalty.
Liverpool had a question mark about Roberto Firmino, who was able to recover and was more likely to be on the pitch.
