Football forecast for Liverpool vs Everton
Liverpool face Everton in a 15th round Premier League match. The match will be played on Wednesday, 4 December at 20:15 UK at Anfield.
Liverpool are convincing leaders in the Championship, having 40 points after playing 14 clashes which is 8 more than second-placed Leicester City and 11 more than Manchester City, which are in third place. In their last 5 games, the Reds have recorded 5 wins, and it seems that in each of those clashes Liverpool failed to keep a dry net. In the last round, they were able to win against Brighton 2:1 by 2:0 after two goals by Virgil van Dijk, but in the 76th minute they were left with a man less after Alisson was sent off with a red card with a header from outside the box and Lewis Dunk scored from a free kick in place of Adrián. By the end of the clash, however, The Reds were able to hold on to their success and ultimately achieve such an important victory that would further increase their lead over Man. City, who earlier in the day failed to beat Newcastle United.
Everton have been performing nightmarishly since the start of the season, currently ranked 17th with an asset of 14 points from 14 rounds and are only 2 points away from the relegation zone. In their last 5 matches they have achieved a single win as a visitor to Southampton by 1:2, and in their last 2 meetings they lost at home to Norwich City by 0-2 and as a visitor to Leicester City by 2-1 as Everton had the lead of half time, but allowed a complete turn and eventually lost after a goal by Kelechi Iheanacho in the 94th minute.
Although it is a derby and anything can happen, I just don’t see how Liverpool can now make an error at Anfield against Everton, who make one of their weakest seasons in the Premier League.
