Everton vs. Liverpool - Betting preview and odds

October 4, 2015 1:30pm - Goodison Park

Premier League

The city of Liverpool will be divided this Sunday lunchtime when Brendan Rodgers´ men make the short journey across Stanley Park to face their Merseyside rivals Everton.

A game of consequence

There may only be one point separating the two sides, but league position counts for everything when it comes to claiming the bragging rights on Merseyside. Roberto Martinez´s side have risen to fifth place in the table after a run of four unbeaten games which included a win over Chelsea and an impressive comeback against West Brom on Monday night. A win on Sunday could lift them into the top-four and leave their more decorated rivals languishing in mid-table obscurity.

It was not so long ago that both these young managers were in the running for the Liverpool job with Brendan Rodgers eventually the preferred choice. However, events transpired to bring them both to Merseyside and they now go head-to-head in a game that could be pivotal in deciding the future of the Liverpool manager.

A win for the Reds would lift them above their rivals and keep them within touching distance of the leaders, while defeat could prompt another round of debate about the managers suitability.

The travelling Kop will be praying that Daniel Sturridge can continue where he left off against Norwich and provide the goals for the away side. The 26-year-old forward is Liverpool´s most prolific striker in the Premier League era but has been plagued by injury since arriving at the club back in January 2013.

Team news

Liverpool will be without Dejan Lovren, Roberto Firmino and Captain Jordan Henderson, while Christian Benteke could be in line for a return after recovering from a minor hamstring injury.

Roberto Martinez will have to make do without Tom Cleverley and Leighton Baines while Seamus Coleman and Muhamed Besic are both doubtful. John Stones could be included after a spell out with a knee injury.

Betting odds and tips

Five of the last six derbies have ended in draws - with Liverpool´s 4-0 demolition of the Toffees during their 2014 title charge being the only exception - and the last three encounters at Goodison Park have all ended in stalemates. You can back the draw at 12/5 with Betvictor.

In the anytime goal scorer market, Romelu Lukaku looks like a good bet at 2/1. The 22-year-old already has four goals in seven appearances this season and will no doubt cause problems for Liverpool´s often shaky defence.
