Betting Tip for matchday 5 of the 2020/2021 Premier League between Everton FC and Liverpool FC. The game will be played at Goodison Park (Liverpool, England) on 17.10.2020 at 13:30.

Everton v Liverpool, EPL

This 288th Merseyside derby is one of the most anticipated ones in years given the circumstances surrounding both teams coming into the clash as high flying Everton host a wounded Liverpool team at the Goodison Park in Saturday’s early kickoff.

EVERTON

Everton did some brisk business in the summer transfer window, bringing in James Rodriguez, Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure to bolster his already strong attacking lineup and the fruits of the moves can be seen already as they top the table with 4 wins in their 4 games while scoring an impressive 12 goals in these matches.

Much of this turnaround has to with the form of Dominic Calvert-Lewin who has scored six goals in the league in the four games, three more in the EFL Cup and a goal in his England debut during the international break.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti has done an excellent job in turning things around at Everton since his appointment last season. Everton’s last victory over Liverpool came exactly 10 years back to the date of this upcoming fixture. Ancelotti and his charges look set and determined to end that drought.

LIVERPOOL

Liverpool’s title defence has begun with fits and starts. They had to dig deep to barely secure a 4-3 win over newcomers Leeds on opening day. They then followed that up with dominant wins over Chelsea and Arsenal before collapsing spectacularly to an astonishing 7-2 loss at Aston Villa just before the international break. That was the worst defeat ever inflicted on a defending champion.

Even though new signing Thiago Alcantara and Sadio Mane missed the match, it still doesn’t account for the lack of effort and the defensive breakdown and overall lack of effort.

Coach Jurgen Klopp is known to make bold changes and he has had a couple of weeks to assess his options. The derby will be the perfect opportunity to look for the response he expects from his players.

EVERTON V LIVERPOOL BETTING TIPS

Although the last three Goodison Park derbies have ended goalless, this particular one has a different feel to it. Both of these teams have been involved in high scoring encounters to start the season. They are both dishing out the goals and receiving some at the same time. When they met at Anfield last season, it was all fireworks as Liverpool won 5-2 and there is every indication we might be treated to another spectacle here. There has been issues on the goalkeeping front for both teams with Everton stopper Pickford going through a rough patch of form and Allison still nursing an injury. We fancy both teams to score @ 1.55 with Betway as our first betting tip.

Everton are in great form. Ancelotti is an experienced coach and he now has great depth in his squad and they look set to challenge the status quo this season. Liverpool have looked shaky and they are not at 100% at the moment. They haven’t won at Goodison in three years despite their incredible run that culminated in a title last season. We are going for Double Chance Everton or Draw @ 1.94 with Betway betting app as our final call for this game.
