Liverpool Premier League Form
Last Time Out In The Premier League
Liverpool cruised to a simple 3-0 win against Watford last weekend. It wasn’t a vintage performance from Liverpool, but they got the job done, despite Jordan Henderson’s late red card. Some fans might be relieved that Henderson will be forced to sit out the derby, but the fact that he will now be fully available against PSG might bring them back down to earth. Prior to Henderson’s dismissal, Mo Salah had given Liverpool the lead. The Egyptian met Sadio Mane’s low cross to score past Ben Foster for his 7th goal of the season. Just under 10 minutes later, Trent Alexander-Arnold channelled his inner David Beckham with a curling free kick into the top corner. It’s not the first free kick the right-back has scored in his short career, so expect a few more long-range effort in the weeks to come. Roberto Firmino headed in a late goal to keep Liverpool in touch with Manchester City on 33 points.
Everton Premier League Form
Last Time Out In The Premier League
Everton continued their push for a European spot with a 1-0 victory over Cardiff. After missing a host of chances in the first half, Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the only goal of the game. The Icelandic midfielder missed the international break through injury, but appeared more than fit enough to score his 6th goal in 9 games. After a delayed start to his Everton career, Andre Gomes has brought the Portuguese flair that Marco Silva would have expected. His close control and burst of pace gave Cardiff defenders nightmares as he impressed the Everton faithful. Cardiff could have been awarded a late penalty after Seamus Coleman knocked Greg Cunningham over, but Everton were relieved when Paul Tierney turned the other way.
Liverpool v Everton Head To Head
Liverpool Wins - 92
Draws - 73
Everton Wins - 66
Liverpool and Everton have been in the same league for 56 years and have inevitably played each other a huge amount of times. With nearly 250 Merseyside derbies to look back on, Liverpool are by far the most successful side, both historically and recently. Liverpool are unbeaten against their neighbours for 8 years. That Everton win came thanks to goals from Everton icons Tim Cahill and Mikel Arteta, as Liverpool started the season horribly. Since then, the Reds have been in complete dominance. Since Everton last won, Liverpool have triumphed 8 times, including 2 4-0 wins. The last meeting was a frustrating 0-0 draw in April. Sam Allardyce managed to stop Liverpool scoring for only the second time in 16 games, but it won’t be one for fans to remember.
