Loyalties will be put to test at Merseyside as Liverpool welcome Everton to Anfield in the English Premier League on Wednesday, April 20.

Derbies are not new in this part of the town but it will be the first Merseyside derby for Jurgen Klopp. The German has already shown the incredible effect of his skills on Liverpool, especially in Europa League. The club still has hopes of finishing in the top four in the League, which would see them qualify for the Champions League next season.

Liverpool had a memorable week picking up three wins in the space of seven days, including back-to-back league wins. There was also an incredible comeback victory over Borussia Dortmund in the quarterfinals of Europa League after trailing 3-1 at halftime.

Everton stay 10 points behind their rivals but Roberto Martinez is under more pressure than he ever was at the club. The unwanted dispute with Leighton Baines ended with the supporters hurling banners calling for Martinez’s resignation.

The Spaniard will have one eye on the weekend FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United and knows very well that reaching the finals there would absolve him of the season mishaps. However, this is one fixture that is often the standout game of the season for the Toffees – the importance of which can’t be undermined by the impending FA semis.

This midweek game will be the 275th time that these two Merseyside rivals are meeting with Liverpool having a far greater edge over Everton. The recent history also suggests Liverpool’s dominance, as the Reds haven’t lost any of their last 10 league meetings with Everton – winning three. And the Toffees haven’t won at Anfield on any of their last 16 visits making this a tough fixture for them.

If the mood of the two clubs’ fans is any barometer, Liverpool should cruise to an easy win. Though derbies are difficult to judge, back the hosts to win the game at odds of 1.70 with Sportsbet. With the strikers in good form, Liverpool should have no problem in finding the back of the net. Back Daniel Sturridge to be the goal scorer at any point in the game.
