Liverpool Everton EPL

One of the most heated derbies in English Premier League – the Merseyside derby will be played for the 227th time when Everton host Liverpool at the Goodison Park on Monday, December 19, 2016.

It’s an often-used cliché but this is one fixture which both sides hate to lose, which means form and bookmaker odds can somewhat be thrown out the window!

Season so far

Everton started their life under new manager Ronald Koeman this season with a bang and looked contenders for top six until a reality check in the last couple of months pulled them down. They now are ninth in the 2016-17 Premier League table with 23 points from 16 games.

Liverpool have been one of the surprises this season with their attractive style of play. Although they have slipped a little in the last three league matches, the Jurgen Klopp led side is currently third in the table with 34 points from 16 games. There is a silent optimism within the camp that they could be real challengers for the title.

Can Koeman find a way to win the derby?

Everton have a cracking home record this season – they are unbeaten at home in the Premier League. But what weighs against them is their poor recent record in the derbies where they have not won any of the last 12. There is anxiety within the side to avoid defeat and head in to the festive fixtures with boosted morale.
For all the goals that they have been scoring this season – forty is currently the most in the Premier League – the focus in the recent games has been on their poor defending. Though they kept four clean sheets in their last six matches, their defence still seems to lack a natural leader. Klopp will only hope that Joel Matop recovers in time to play a part at the Goodison Park.


Liverpool are massive favorites – both on current form and history in this fixture. But if Everton can summon the form that saw them crack open Arsenal, it could be an interesting match. Both teams wouldn’t want to lose this particular match which means we could see a scoring draw.

Adam Lallana is enjoying life under Klopp and you can see it from the way he’s scoring goals. He looks good to continue his scoring record, so back him to be anytime goal scorer.
