Liverpool V Everton – Merseyside Derby Preview And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

Liverpool will be keen to keep up their unbeaten record in the Premier League against their Merseyside rivals this weekend.

Everton last won the derby eight years ago in a 2-0 win at Goodison Park, but you have to go back to 1999 for the Toffees’ last victory at Anfield.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will be without captain Jordan Henderson who will be suspended for the match after being sent off against Watford.

Adam Lallana should return after a muscular problem kept him out for the game last weekend, but there are still doubts over Divock Origi (illness) and Dominic Solanke (groin).

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still on course to make a first-team return sometime next year as he continues his rehabilitation from a serious knee injury.

For Everton, manager Marco Silva will be without Jonjoe Kenny (knock) and James McCarthy (leg) for the derby.

The bookmakers have Liverpool as the favourites for the clash with the Reds 2/5 at Sky Bet. A draw is 21/5 with Unibet and an Everton victory is currently 8/1 with BetVictor.
