Liverpool v Everton Betting Tips
It’s the first Merseyside Derby of the season this week and with both sides at the opposite ends of the table, this match means more than most. Liverpool can extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table with a win, but it’s Everton who are more desperate for the 3 points. Marco Silva could be out of a job if he doesn’t get a result at Anfield, a tough ask for any manager. These two sides have also been drawn together in the FA Cup 3rd Round, but don’t expect this match to mean any less because of that.

Liverpool’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Liverpool
Liverpool’s incredible winning record continued with a 2-1 win over Brighton at the weekend. Even with a front line of Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, it was Virgil Van Dijk who was on the scoresheet. Just days before coming second in the Ballon D’or stakes, Van Dijk had a first half brace that set Liverpool up for the win. His first came after 18 minutes, heading back across the keeper from a Trent Alexander Arnold set piece. Just 6 minutes later, the pair connected again, this time from a corner as Van Dijk rose highest and powered his header into the back of the net. It looked like being a comfortable afternoon for Liverpool, but late on, Allison was dismissed for handling the ball outside of his area. Lewis Dunk scored a sneaky goal from the resulting free kick, setting up a nervy finish. In the end, Liverpool’s defence was strong enough to hold on and move onto 40 points at the top of the table.
Everton’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Everton
A last minute Leicester goal condemned Everton to a 3rd defeat in 5 games and languishing just above the relegation zone. Richarlison gave Everton a surprising lead after 23 minutes, getting on the end of a Djibril Sidibe cross. VAR worked in Everton’s favour at the end of the first half, denying Ben Chilwell a penalty, and it looked like it could be Everton’s day. In the second half, however, the introduction of Kelechi Iheanacho changed the game completely. The Nigerian international set up Jamie Vardy for the equaliser, before scoring a last minute winner to give Leicester the three points. After benfitting from VAR in the first half, it worked against Everton when it awarded the late winner after the linesman had initially ruled Iheanacho offside. Everton haven’t kept a clean sheet away from home since the opening day, so don’t expect a shut out at Anfield on Wednesday
Where’s The Value Bet?
There’s no hiding the fact that Liverpool are miles ahead of Everton and have been for much of their history. In fact, Everton haven’t beaten their neighbours in 9 years and have only won 4 derbies since the turn of the millenium. But even though Everton rarely get one over Liverpool, the last few games have been closer than records suggest. Liverpool have won 2 of the last 5 Merseyside derbies, and there have only been 6 goals scored altogether in those 5. It’s always said that form doesn’t matter when it comes to derby day, so looking back at past results is possibly a better way to predict the outcome. Taking that into account, we’re going for under 1.5 goals to be scored, which is 15/4 with Bet UK.

Bet UK’s Headline Betting Tip
We’re looking to the player props market at Bet UK for our headline tip. Sadio Mane has been the standout star for Liverpool this season, and although he was quiet at the weekend, he should be back to his best against Everton. Over 1.5 shots on target isn’t unlikely at all for a player that has 17 shots on target so far this season.
