Fierce local rivals Liverpool and Everton meet at Anfield on Tuesday in the eagerly anticipated Merseyside derby. The teams go into the match in contrasting form, with Everton riding high on a wave of momentum after going undefeated for two months and counting, while Liverpool have failing to win since their Carling Cup triumph. The Reds have been handed short odds of 8/11 for the win, while Everton look like a good bet at 4/1 to claim the bragging rights, with a draw available at 13/5. If there are four or more goals in this game, Paddy Power will refund all losing first/last goalscorer, correct score & scorecast singles on the match.
Liverpool have been poor in the league recently, with three consecutive defeats leaving them 10 points adrift of the top four. They are without a league win since the end of January and will need a vast improvement from their performance at Sunderland if they are to avoid a demoralising defeat at home to Everton.
Neighbours Everton will be brimming with confidence following Sunday’s win at home to Tottenham, which took their unbeaten streak to nine matches. This impressive run has also included wins against Man City and Chelsea and their supporters would love nothing more than a win at Anfield. David Moyes’ men are now just two points behind Liverpool in the table and if they come away with the three points they will leapfrog their rivals into 7th place.
Liverpool may have only been defeated once on home soil this season but they have produced just four wins in front of their home fans. They have struggled to convert possession into goals which has ultimately cost them a top four finish. However, they are unbeaten in 12 home matches against Everton, with The Toffees last victory at Anfield coming back in 1999 when Kevin Campbell gave them a 1-0 win.
The Reds may be the odds-on favourites but Everton are a very tempting bet at 4/1 to cause an upset, with a 1-0 away win priced at 11/1. Meanwhile Kenny Dalglish’s men have odds of 5/1 to record a 1-0 win and 7/1 to win 2-1. A 0-0 draw could be the way to go at 15/2, while a 1-1 scoreline is available at 11/2 with Paddy Power.
It has been well documented that both clubs have struggled for goals this season and evidence suggests that Tuesday’s match is unlikely to be a high-scoring affair. Recent Merseyside derbies haven’t exactly been jam-packed with goals, with only one of the last ten meetings containing more than two goals.
Luis Suarez has been installed as the 9/2 favourite in the first goalscorer odds, with Craig Bellamy available at 5/1 and Andy Carroll at 6/1. Steven Gerrard could be worth a bet at 13/2, while Dirk Kuyt has odds of 15/2. Everton’s Nikica Jelavic scored the only goal of the game against Spurs at the weekend and can be found with odds of 8/1 to open the scoring on Tuesday night.
