Who will win Everton vs Liverpool?
This edition of the famed Merseyside derby certainly brings together 2 teams on very different paths. Liverpool are eyeing off a second Premier League title under Jurgen Klopp while Everton are again being accused of underachieving.
Everton won 4 of their first 6 games before falling in a heap with the last 7 matches producing 5 losses and 2 draws. During that time they have scored just 4 times and conceded 13 goals.
Former Liverpool boss Rafa Benítez will also manage against his old side for the first time. The visitors have produced strong form against Southampton and also Porto before that.
It's hard to see this going any other way than with Liverpool claiming all 3 points.
