Liverpool v Everton Tips

  • Sadio Mane to score first at 11/2 with Coral
  • Liverpool to win 1-0 at 6/1 at Ladbrokes
  • Under 2.5 goals at 11/10 at Coral

Big Match Analysis

Liverpool will be without Mo Salah and Philippe Coutinho for this one, whilst Sadio Mane will fly back from Africa in time to play. Liverpool’s attacking threat will be reduced and so we expect a close game.

Everton will defend in numbers and hope to nick a goal but we think Liverpool will prove too good. The Toffees scraped a lucky draw in the Premier League at Anfield and we expect a similar gritty performance here.

However, ultimately form, class, momentum and home advantage will see the Reds nick the result. Under 2.5 goals looks cracking value at odds of 11/10 given Everton’s three recent league clashes with Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United have all ended that way.

If you fancy any of our three tips be sure to check out the great free bets available. Coral and Ladbrokes have the best odds on these markets. If you don’t have an account with them already, Coral’s bet £5, £20 free bet or Ladbrokes £50 offer are both well worth claiming.
