The first match of Super Sunday sees Liverpool host Everton at Anfield in what is always an eagerly anticipated local derby.
Liverpool start as even money favourites to win the match, Everton can be backed at 11/4, whilst the draw is available at 12/5. All odds quoted are with Coral.
Liverpool lie in seventh place in the table, five points behind Everton. The Reds will approach the game in confident mood following the 6-0 thrashing they gave Newcastle last time out and the home support will demand nothing less than three points as Brendan Rodgers’ side seek a top-six finish.
The Toffees are in good form having lost only one of their last eight league matches and make the short journey to Anfield knowing that three points will secure them a top-six slot in the league’s final standings. If they are to gain victory however, they will need to improve on an away scoring record that has seen them fail to find the net in four of their last six matches on the road.
Recent meetings between the sides have favoured Liverpool, who have lost only one of their last twelve league matches against Everton. Three of the last four league encounters have gone over 2.5 goals, and given 17 of Liverpool’s last 20 matches in the Premier League have seen at least three goals, a bet on over 2.5 goals at 4/5 with Ladbrokes looks pretty much like buying cash. Looking at the goalscorer markets, the player that stands out in the anytime market is Everton’s top scorer Marouane Fellaini who can be backed at 3/1 with Ladbrokes. The big-haired Belgian has shown that he can score on the big occasion more than once this season, having netted against Man City, Man Utd and Arsenal. He can add to his 11 goal-tally by firing at Anfield. And if he can find the net, then he surely rates as a cracking bet to be awarded Man Of The Match. Of the nine matches that Fellaini has scored in this season, he has been been the top-rated player in that match on whoscored.com eight times, and at 8/1 is surely worth a bet.
