Reason for Everton vs Liverpool Predictions
Carlo Ancelotti won Manager of the Month in the Premier League, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin won Player of the Month as Everton has roared to the top of the Premier League table and 3 points clear of Aston Villa in 2nd place. Everton is not only unbeaten in all seven games played in the 2020/21 season in all competitions, but they are the only club in the top flight who have won all of those fixtures. The home side has lost 1 of their last 16 games at home in all competitions, and Everton has won all four played here over the previous month while scoring at least three goals in each game. James Rodriguez is fast and an excellent technician, and everybody has high expectations from the Colombian international. Richarlison is the best player of the team, the Brazilian played great last season, and the big clubs want this player in their squad. Bernard is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Top scorer Dominic Calvert-Levin played 36 games, scored 13 goals last season, and this youngster uses every opportunity to endanger the opponent, and a great career is ahead of him. He started well this season as well, he scored six goals in 4 games, all praise for him.
The unbeaten start to the season came to a crashing end as Liverpool were hammered 7-2 at Villa Park before the international break, and everyone associated with the club will be expecting a big reaction. The team is in serious trouble, as the defense has shown that it has weak points. That defeat dropped Liverpool down to 5th place in the Premier League table, and they are 3 points behind rivals Everton going into the first Merseyside derby of the season. Alcantara is a serious reinforcement, 30 million Euros is a ridiculous figure for a player like this in the middle of the field, who spoils the opponent’s actions and plays without mistakes. Mohamed Salah is a master of football, and it is a pleasure to watch his moves, he scored 19 goals last season, and the Egyptian does not spare his opponents.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw. We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
