Liverpool vs Everton: Premier League preview

E

verton will sense an opportunity for derby glory on Saturday as they look to pile the misery on champions Liverpool.

The blue half of Merseyside have not tasted victory over their red rivals since 2010, a run consisting of 23 games across all competitions. A win at Anfield last came in 1999.

With Liverpool’s league form having fallen off a cliff, Everton will take heart and further incentive that victory would see them move level on points with a game in hand.

Liverpool have lost three league games in succession for the first time since 2014 and also their last three at Anfield, although Everton’s league form has also faltered with only one win in their last six.

Liverpool vs Everton is scheduled for a 5.30pm GMT kick-off on Tuesday, February 20, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Anfield.

Liverpool still have a number of first-team players out injured but could see Naby Keita return to the squad as he works on his fitness.

Everton welcomed both Jordan Pickford and James Rodriguez back from injury in the loss to Manchester City, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Allan could join them on Saturday. Yerry Mina is out.

PA

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Everton

Liverpool benefited from two mistakes against RB Leipzig but looked somewhat back on form as they controlled the majority of the game. Everton desperately need Dominic Calvert-Lewin as a focal point to their attack. Going for a morale-boosting home win.
