Everton v Liverpool Betting Tips & Predictions

The first Merseyside derby of the season takes place at Goodison Park on Saturday with Liverpool priced as odds-on favourites.

Everton are one of three winless teams this season, but Frank Lampard’s side have drawn their last three fixtures. New signing Neal Maupay is available for this one and could lead the line. 

Liverpool welcome Darwin Nunez back from suspension after their controversial win over Newcastle in midweek. Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost once in their last 23 league matches. 

Total Goals: Over 2.5 

3/5 (Sporting Index)

Everton have managed to hold Liverpool to a draw in four of the last five Merseyside derbies at Goodison Park. Liverpool are naturally heavy favourites here, however, and have bounced back from their loss to Manchester United with consecutive league victories. 

Over 2.5 goals has hit in just three of five Merseyside derbies, but that shouldn’t put you off the over here. Liverpool’s defence is more fallible than it was last season, while the attack has been incredibly potent.

Don’t be surprised if we see four or five goals at Goodison Park. 

To Be Shown A Card: Darwin Nunez

19/5 (BetVictor)

The form of Roberto Firmino means Darwin Nunez might have to settle for a cameo off the bench. Nunez has served his three-match suspension and returns for arguably the most intense fixture in the Premier League. 

Nunez is a fiery personality, and Everton will immediately try to rile him up whenever he gets on the pitch. While Liverpool will have urged him to keep his emotions under control, Nunez only knows how to play one way, and he will throw himself into derby. 

Whether flying into a challenge or getting into an altercation with one of Everton’s defenders, Nunez is a definite card risk here. 

Anytime Goalscorer: Roberto Firmino

33/20 (Unibet)

After scoring five goals in 20 league appearances last season, Roberto Firmino has three goals in two matches. The Brazilian is seventh in expected goals per 90 in 2022-23, and is looking like his old self. 

It’s easy to go with Mohamed Salah in the anytime goalscorer market, but the Egyptian hasn’t started the season in his best form and Firmino’s price to get on the scoresheet is a better price than Salah’s.
