Saturday’s Premier League action kicks off with a Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, as Everton look to put a dent in Liverpool’s recent recovery.
The Reds come into this clash in form after consecutive wins, but they’ve won just three of their last 11 league trips to the Toffees.
As the two rivals gear up for their clash, we’ve put together a 59/1 ultimate bet builder, which you can back below!
Everton vs Liverpool Ultimate Bet Builder
Both teams to score
Liverpool may have seen off Newcastle on Wednesday night, but the Reds struggled at the back once again. They have now conceded in five of their six games this season, something Everton will look to exploit on Saturday.
The hosts have seen both teams score in their last four home matches, while they’ve only been shut out once in their last seven at home. With both sides approaching this one in good scoring form, back both sides to score.
Anthony Gordon to score or be carded
After rebuffing interest from Chelsea, Everton will hope Gordon plays a big role in keeping them safe this season. He’s already doing his part, having scored in back-to-back Premier League games.
However, Gordon has also been booked in each of his last three appearances. The winger is a clear scoring threat, having 12 shots on target from 16 attempts this term. However, he also has disciplinary issues, making this the perfect market to back him in.
James Tarkowski to be carded
Adding Tarkowski on a free was a solid bit of business from Everton, but the former Burnley man will be up against it this weekend given that Liverpool have scored 11 times across the last seven days.
Tarkowski has yet to see a card since arriving on Merseyside, but he was booked 11 times in the Premier League last season. So far this term the defender has averaged two fouls per appearance at Goodison, so his first booking is likely to come soon.
Virgil van Dijk 1+ shot on target
Liverpool have an incredible front three, but they also pack real set piece threat. They’ve been getting more out of those opportunities of late, with van Dijk having five shots in their last four matches.
The Dutchman has had a shot on target in consecutive matches and I’m backing him to work Pickford in this one, as he’s set to stride forward from the back full of confidence after his recent strike against Bournemouth.
Over 3.5 Everton corners
The Toffees rely on set pieces too, while they’ve averaged five corners per league game this term. The visitors have conceded an average of five corners per away trip, so there should be opportunities for Everton to rack up a solid corner count.
Back the hosts to have at least four corners in this one, with Liverpool’s midfield issues allowing the hosts more opportunities to get forward.
