Everton and Liverpool meet at Goodison Park on Wednesday in a Merseyside derby that could have huge ramifications for both ends of the Premier League table. Ahead of this crucial midweek Premier League fixture, here at you’ll find the latest team news, expert betting tips and match insights as well as the best match odds and free bet offers from our partners at Ladbrokes.


It’s been a season of contrasting fortunes for the two clubs from Merseyside. Whilst two points deductions leave Everton embroiled in a relegation battle, Liverpool find themselves in a three-way battle to win the Premier League title.

Everton’s highly controversial 2-0 win at home to Nottingham Forest at the weekend has moved Sean Dyche’s side five points clear of the bottom three, despite an eight-point deductions handed out for two separate PSR breaches. The Toffees sit 16th with 30 points from their 33 matches.

Liverpool also got back to winning ways at the weekend, earning a 3-1 win away at Fulham after back-to-back home losses against Crystal Palace (1-0) and Atalanta (3-0). The Reds are level on points with Arsenal at the Premier League’s summit having both taken 74 points from 33 matches. In one of the tightest title races for years, Manchester City are only one point behind with 73 points albeit from just 32 matches.

Everton v Liverpool: Head-to-Head

Everton have a dreadful record against their cross-city rivals, winning just one of the past 29 Merseyside derbies played in all competitions. The Toffees have failed to score a single goal in their last four matches against Liverpool and lost 2-0 in the reverse fixture at Anfield in October.

The corresponding fixture at Goodison Park last season ended goalless, the fifth draw in six matches between the sides held at the home of Everton.

Betting Tips

Liverpool’s superior record in recent Merseyside derbies coupled with their vastly superior form in this season’s Premier League inevitably make the red half of Merseyside the favourites with most football betting sites on Wednesday. It’s hard to look past a Liverpool win at Goodison Park and at odds of 2/5 they are very backable.

Incredibly, only the top three in the Premier League have conceded fewer league goals than Everton this season whilst only Sheffield United have scored on fewer occasions than The Toffees. It is therefore not hard to see why Wednesday’s hosts have struggled this season. Statistically, Liverpool to win to nil (13/8) looks the most likely outcome at Goodison Park.

Liverpool have been dealt another injury blow in the buildup to Wednesday evening with the news that Diogo Jota is set for another couple of weeks on the sidelines. In his absence, Mohamed Salah looks certain to return to the Liverpool starting lineup at Goodison Park and he is a solid option in the various goalscorer markets. Here are just some of the betting markets featuring Mohamed Salah for you to consider.
