PREM LIVERPOOL NEED WIN

LIVERPOOL NEED WIN

2nd March 2019

Before you lump into Liverpool at 8/13 to win at Goodsion on Sunday refelct on this - bith sides have only won two of their last six games - the difference is Liverpool ahve drawn the other four - whilst Everton lost them.

Liverpool have a better recent record in the fixture and on all current form should win. But, Everton looked more like it at Cardiff last time and Liverpool have looked lack-lustre in recent matches.

Five of the last six renewals have ended all square and at 16/5 that looks a massive price.

Everton are expected to welcome back midfielder Andre Gomes, who was rested for the win at Cardiff.

Leighton Baines is the Toffees' only absentee with the rib injury that has ruled him out for a month.

Liverpool are hopeful that Roberto Firmino will be fit to return from the ankle problem that caused him to miss Wednesday's victory against Watford.

Defender Dejan Lovren could be back in contention when Liverpool host Burnley next weekend.

Everton manager Marco Silva: "First we must be ourselves, to believe in ourselves. Of course it's a long time without a win for us as a football club - that means it's a difficult match.

"I didn't see a big difference [between the sides] when I managed my first Liverpool derby. If we can perform the way we did [then] in December it will be very good, because we were very close to winning the match. In that match we deserved something more."

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "The Everton fans don't want us to win anything and probably for our fans it's the same.

"In the game it's very emotional and passionate, and I hope it's like that again. That's how football should be.

"At Goodison they really support their team so let's go there and use the atmosphere because it will be loud, it will be wild, and we have to deliver on the pitch."

Elsewhere, we fancy Leicester udner Brendan Rodgers to get a win at Watford and Newcastle can get at least a point at West Ham.
