The Merseyside derby is on this week as Everton play host to Liverpool at Goodison Park. This is one of the most historic and fierce rivalries in world sport and this edition should once again be a great game to watch. Both sides will be desperate to win and the passion of the fans will be on show as the world will have their eyes on the city again.
Everton have not been living up to what was expected of them after their spending spree which saw them bring in a number of players from other clubs during the summer. That being said this side can click at any given time and when they do, they have the potential to beat even the best teams in Europe. That being said, this will still be a very tough game for them since Liverpool are a quality side and beating them has not been easy this season.
Liverpool feel as if they can win the title this season as this side is filled with quality. The problem is going to be injuries but Klopp is an excellent manager and I think he has what it takes to work around these problems. That being said, this might be a problem for him against Everton as only the best Liverpool side will be needed to win this game.
As far as betting is concerned, there is no real value in betting on Liverpool to win since the price we are getting is just not good enough considering it is a derby and Everton could very possibly win. That being said, there are still a few bets that could be made that are still profitable. The best is in the form of the number of goals scored and I think we have to take the over 2.5 goals since both sides love to put the ball in the back of the net and have plenty of quality to do so.
