Everton vs. Liverpool Prediction

Liverpool: 700 Goals Under Jurgen Klopp

Rampant Liverpool destroyed Southampton last weekend, beating them 4-0 with Diogo Jota scoring a brace. A few days ago, we talked about the African Cup of Nations and how much Liverpool will suffer being without Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. However, it looks like we underrated Diogo Jota and how much he means for this team.

He scored a brace in 32 minutes, and he possesses excellent technical, physical, and tactical skills. He's very smart with or without the ball. In addition, his goal-scoring record is impressive. He netted 7 goals and offered an assist in 12 games this season, and let's not forget that he's not playing full games like Salah or Mane. In January, he will be the main attacking player for Liverpool when Salah and Mane are away for the African Cup of Nations.

December 2020: Liverpool has scored 600 goals under Jurgen Klopp. December 2021: The Reds have scored 700 goals under Klopp. Jurgen Klopp has credited Liverpool's free-scoring form to a full pre-season schedule for his main stars. Salah, Mane, and Jota are sitting in the top 4 in the top-scorers chart after 13 rounds with 27 goals netted between them and 10 assists offered.

Liverpool's injury situation has steadily improved, but they will still be without Gomez, Keita, Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott against Everton. Mohamed Salah finished seventh in the Ballon d'Or on Monday night. I am wondering if this award is still relevant in the soccer world.

With games every three days, the festive period looks like it could be a crucial month in the title race, but Liverpool heads into December in great form and is ready to maintain the pressure on Chelsea and Man City. It was a perfect weekend for City and Liverpool as Chelsea dropped points in the 1-1 draw against United.

It was a strange feeling not to see Salah on the scoresheets against the Saints, but he was vital for the team offering an assist for Jota. He has been directly involved in 150 EPL goals in his 171 domestic league fixtures for the Reds.

Everton: Rafa Benitez Under Huge Pressure

Could Rafael Benitez face the ax if terrible results continue to pile up? Yes, they are playing Liverpool, and logically the Reds should beat them, but another defeat might be Benitez's last match as Everton manager. The Premier League has seen six sides sack their coach this season, with Benitez being the considerable favorite to be No. 7.

Everton is sitting 14th in the standings and enters this match on the back of 7 winless Premier League games losing 5 in the process and failing to find the back of the net in 4. Given his connection with Liverpool (Benitez spent six years as Liverpool manager, winning the Champions League in 2005), Everton's fans are calling for his head in case of a defeat in the derby, so it's fascinating to watch how this story will end.

They look bad and are now just 6 points above the red zone. Calvert-Lewin ought to return at some point before the end of the year, but not this week, while Yerry Mina, Tom Davies, and Andre Gomes are all set to miss out as well. Richarlison is back from suspension and fully fit for this clash, but Mason Holgate will have to spend one more round on the naughty corner.

Everton vs. Liverpool Betting Picks

Everton ended a 20-games winless run against Liverpool with a 2-0 victory in the previous game between these two teams, but it will be very tough to double that with another upset. Form often goes out the window in derby games, but this time the difference between the two teams is vast, with Everton unable to find the back of the net in their last three EPL fixtures.

Both teams have contributed on the scoreboard just twice in the previous nine mutual encounters. The visitors are sitting on 39 goals scored, having the best attack in the league, and it looks like no team can keep them at bay. They should be able to score at least two on their own in a comfortable win.

Everton vs. Liverpool Picks

  • Liverpool -1.5 (+110)
  • Liverpool to Score in Both Halves (+105)
