The Premier League weekend starts in fine fashion with the much anticipated Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton at Anfield. With both sides scoring freely, this could be a red-blooded end to end battle in the north west. Liverpool went to Goodison Park earlier in the league season and edged a narrow 1-0 win but things look as if they are going to be a bit more explosive this time around when they meet at Saturday lunchtime.
Liverpool’s home form has been fantastic with a W10 D3 L1 record on the board this term and with an average of over 2.5 goals per game this term at Anfield, they have the scoring power to take down any side. That has been evident lately with recent home victories over both Tottenham and Arsenal, plus the Reds have beaten Manchester City at Anfield this and they remain the only side to win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea this season.
In their push for a top four finish, the Reds need this one and they have gone unbeaten in their last twelve league games against the Toffees. Two of their last three games at home against the Toffees has seen Liverpool put 4-0 victories on the board. But with the Reds having only kept the one clean sheet in their last ten Premier League games, Everton are likely going to turn up and put some pressure on the Liverpool back line, particularly through Romelu Lukaku who is tearing up the goalscoring charts this season.
The big Belgian has 21 league goals to his name and he has scored 11 goals in 10 Premier League appearances in the 2017 calendar year. He is on a four match scoring streak in the top flight at the moment and Everton have posted a fantastic W8 D3 L1 record in their last twelve league games, so they are carrying some big form with them at the moment, whereas ahead of their meeting with Liverpool earlier in the season, they were looking out of sorts.
