Everton v Liverpool: Merseyside derby
The fifth round of the Premier League kicks off with a Merseyside derby on Saturday 17 October. Everton will host Liverpool at Goodison. The site experts have prepared a forecast for this meeting.
Everton have had their best start in England in 125 years with their first full season for Carlo Ancelotti . Fans of “butterscotch” could not dream of this. That is why it is twice as offensive that they cannot share this joy with the team at the stadiums. The Italian wards, taking into account the League Cup, have won seven matches in a row.
In the championship , Everton beat Tottenham (1: 0), West Bromwich (5: 2), Crystal Palace (2: 1) and Brighton (4: 2), and in the League Cup “Passed” Salford “(3: 0),” Fleetwood “(5: 2) and” West Ham “(4: 1). Everton started the season as a full-fledged top club.
Ancelotti’s team before the derby single-handedly tops the table.
The butterscotch home winning streak has already reached four meetings. And only in one of these matches did Everton win by less than three goals.
For four rounds, Carlo Ancelotti’s teams have accumulated several personnel problems. Injured midfielders Andre Gomes and Allan Marquez, who are accompanied in the infirmary by Jean-Philippe Gbamen, Jonjo Kenny, Mason Holgate and Jenk Tosun. In addition, Theo Walcott and Moise Keene left the team.
Liverpool’s start in the new championship was generally good. The Reds won three out of four league matches and also performed well in the League Cup. However, the defeat to Aston Villa in the last round with a crushing 2: 7 score looks too bright to ignore. The fiasco was the biggest in Jurgen Klopp’s coaching career , and the number of goals conceded by Liverpool is the biggest since Bill Shankly and 1963. However, in other league matches, the Reds dealt with Chelsea (2-0) at Stamford Bridge, defeated Arsenal (3-1) and defeated Leeds (4: 3).
With nine points, Klopp’s team is fifth.
In the League Cup, Liverpool first defeated Lincoln (7: 2), but in the next match lost on penalties to Arsenal.
At the start of the season, defense looks like a screaming problem for the Reds. Liverpool have conceded 11 goals in four games. Only West Brom have more missed goals. This problem promises to remain relevant for at least another two months. That is how much Alisson was out of order. He is accompanied in the infirmary by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Nabi Keita is trying to cure the coronavirus. But Thiago Alcantara, Joel Matip and Sadio Mane returned to service.
On the road, Liverpool’s stats don’t look particularly rosy either. The Reds have won only three of their last eight Premier League games.
Everton’s winning streak has reached seven official matches.
Toffee won all four last official home games by more than one goal.
The bet “total over 2.5” has played in all six past official matches of Everton.
Liverpool have won only three of their previous eight away Premier League matches.
In four of Liverpool’s last five away games in the Premier League, they have played “both to score.”
Everton have not been able to beat Liverpool since 2010. The unbeaten streak of “toffee” in matches with the “reds” has already reached 22 matches.
All three of their last home meetings with Liverpool, Everton have drawn 0-0.
Liverpool have beaten Everton at Goodison in only one of their last eight head-to-head matches.

Judging by the latest performances of the teams and their position in the standings, Everton for the first time in a long time can approach the derby from a position of strength. However, will Carlo Ancelotti dare to play attacking football against the Reds? Liverpool will definitely be angry after such a disappointing fiasco, and the success against Everton , who are at the top of the table, is definitely an excellent response to critics.
Considering the statistics of head-to-head meetings, a risky bet on a draw looms here. “Liverpool” rarely wins on “Goodison” and “Everton” not ten years wins of “Liverpool” .
