Everton v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Saturday 7th January 2015

So far it has been a difficult season for Everton boss Roberto Martinez, however he might just feel that a win here would pick his team right up and especially after a good away win last time out against in form Crystal Palace. In that game it was Crystal Palace who enjoyed the majority of the possession and created more chances, however it was the Blues who came out on top thanks to a Lukaku goal in the second minute of the game.

Last season Liverpool were ever so close to getting their hands on their first Premier League trophy since it began. In the past two or three months they have gained the form from last season and really started to push on up the table. Liverpool have managed to move up to 7th place in the table and the pleasing thing is that they have now close the gap to fourth placed team Southampton to just four points. Liverpool have been poor this season as they have already lost five away games so far.

Everton Team News:

Manager Roberto Martinez will be pleased that he will have the services of James McCarthy who is back from injury however, he might only make the bench as Besic has shown some good form in recent weeks. Everton will be without Tim, Howard, Leon Osman and Steven Pienarr who all have respective injury problems.

Liverpool Team News:

Manager Brendan Rodgers does have a few concerns going into this match but nothing that will affect his first team. Kolo Toure is still absent with the Ivory Coast at the AFCON. Daniel Sturridge has come off the bench in the last two game however, I believe he will be starting this match. Markovic will face a late fitness test.

Everton v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Premiership action on Saturday’s late kick off will see 12th place Everton take on bitter rivals and neighbours Liverpool in what is set up to be a classic Merseyside derby with plenty of goal mouth action and some heavy tackles are bound to go in.

Everton will head into the match as the most nervous of the two teams as they know that they need something from this game to keep the home fans happy and to keep Roberto Martinez’s safer than it is now. The bonus for Everton is that they do not have any major injuries apart from goalkeeper Tim Howard.

Liverpool will feel that there is not much pressure on them as they have been climbing the table each week. Daniel Sturridge is back and ready to claim a starting place and you just feel that this game is set up perfectly for him to sink the home team. As regards to the first goal I can’t really look past Sturridge or Lukaku.

My predictions for the game are going to be the match to end in a draw as the statistics are most certainly pointing towards that. My saver will be Daniel Sturridge to Score the first goal of the match.
