Everton vs Liverpool: Everton hosts Liverpool at Goodison Park this
Saturday for the Premier League’s 31st round.
It is needless to say that the importance that this derby has for both of these teams doesn’t really have to do with the positions they occupy on the league table.
Everton’s positive streak has ended on the last round, when the team hosted Manchester City and ended up being defeated at home by 3-1.
The team was coming off 2 wins and with that result they ended up staying in 9th place with 40 points conquered. Playing at home, the team’s record isn’t brilliant.
They have 9 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses, with a record of 26 goals scored and 21 goals conceded.
On the current season, the rivals have already faced off twice, with a draw in the Premier League and Liverpool’s 2-1 win on the FA Cup.

Everton vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
This was looking like another disappointing season for Liverpool.
Away from the title race, with an inconsistent campaign, the team didn’t seem to have a lot of future on the Champions League. But all of that was before Wednesday.
The Reds have battered the so far unstoppable Manchester City and they have one foot already in the semi-finals. The Champions League might be the salvation of their season.
Not that their Premier League campaign was bad, since the team sits in 3rd place with 66 points conquered, but that can’t be compared to winning another European title.
I expect a match with goals here. I don’t need to highlight the quality of Liverpool’s attack. But despite not having conceded against City in the Champions League, the Reds’ defence isn’t their strongest sector. In that sense, “Both teams to score” here seems like a good selection.
