One of the games of the week brings us to Liverpool where the Merseyside Derby takes place in Anfield on Tuesday night. Liverpool and Everton are seperated by one point in the league table so there is far more at stake than just bragging rights. Both teams are in a genuine fight for that elusive fourth spot and Champions League qualification and a win tomorrow for either side could be key in the race for fourth. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will look to his strike force or S&S as they are known now, Sturridge andSuarez to be the key for Liverpool. The reds have been a revelation this year, Suarez in particular has been amazing netting 22 goals already this season. Liverpool although tremendous going forward have been poor at the back and at the moment are struggling in midfield where captain Stephen Gerrard has been poor of late but Gerrard does have an ability to turn it on for the big games and it doesnt get any bigger for Liverpool players than a derby game against Everton in Anfield.
Roberto Martinez has made Everton a really tough team to beat and in fact the Toffees have lost the least amount of games of any Premier League team this year. There have been too many draws for the blues but they really have been tough to beat this year, this is based on a solid defence and a strong combatitve midfield. Leighton Baines, Seamis Coleman, Ross Barkley, Mirallas and Lukaku have been the center of everything going forward for the toffees. Everton travel to Liverpool having lost only one of their last fifteen games a great run of form and one that should inspire confidence in the blue half of Merseyside.
This game is set up to be a mouthwatering affair, will it live up to the hype? For once I think it possibly will. I like the overs here, I think we have a red hot Liverpool attack that can score against anyone and a Liverpool defence that has been anything but impressive of late. I think Lukaku and Barkley will cause Liverpool alot of problems and I like the overs. On the side's I would take the draw here, i think both teams may settle for a 2-2 in the end.
