Jordan Henderson is suspended for this game after his late sending off against Watford at the weekend. The midfielder received two yellow cards to miss these Liverpool vs Everton predictions, with Fabinho and Naby Keita in contention to replace him. Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both out, while reserve forwards Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi are doubts.

James McCarthy is closing in on a return for the Toffees. The Irish midfielder hasn’t played since his horror leg break in January, but is nearly ready for action. Apart from that, Jonjoe Kenny is the only other injury concern for Marco Silva coming into this Premier League preview. Yerry Mina retained his place in the line-up for Saturday’s win against Cardiff City, and should start again.
Liverpool vs Everton prediction, preview and betting tips
Everton come into this Merseyside derby looking for their first win against Liverpool in 18 matches. The Reds haven’t lost to the Blues in any competition since 2010, although there have been nine draws since then. Both Premier League fixtures last season ended all square, but Liverpool are in great form this term.
Liverpool are 2/5 for the win, so they’re the clear favourites in your football predictions. Jurgen Klopp’s side have won 10 of their opening 13 games, and only trail leaders Manchester City by two points. The Reds eased to a 3-0 victory at fast-starting Watford last weekend, and they’ve only dropped points against City, Chelsea and Arsenal. Liverpool have won four of their last six games against the Toffees, and look good for another victory here.
The away team are 8/1 in your Liverpool v Everton betting tips, as they look for a long-awaited win against their neighbours from across Stanley Park. Local bragging rights have been hard to come by, and this is going to be a tough game for Everton. Their opponents have shown the ability to grind out results this season, while the Toffees are struggling for consistency. Ending Liverpool’s unbeaten record would be massive for the Blues though.
The draw is 17/4 in your football betting predictions, and the visitors would probably take that. Everton are currently sixth and a point away at a genuine title challenger would be a positive result. Three of the last 11 Premier League meetings between the teams have ended 0-0, with another goalless draw priced at 18/1 in your football score predictions.
Sadio Mane is 5/1 for the first goal on Sunday. The Senegal forward broke the deadlock in Liverpool’s last Premier League victory over Everton in April of last year, and has six league goals this term. Gylfi Sigurdsson is 16/1 in your football score predictions, after getting the only goal of the game against Cardiff. He scored at Anfield in the FA Cup last season, and could be worth a punt.
