Liverpool vs Everton prediction
Liverpool didn't have an easy game as it was expected at home against Brighton, but still, the Reds walked away with a three-pointer in a 2:1 game.
They had the double lead after twenty-five minutes of the game thanks to two goals from van Dijk, probably deserving to score even more in the first halftime.
However, they turned out to be more passive than needed in the second halftime, making it a bit difficult in the end.
Their goalkeeper got red-carded fifteen minutes till the end, reducement in the scoreline came, while the Reds had to defend a bit in the end to get the victory. They are now eight points above the second-placed Leicester.
The Reds will miss suspended goalkeeper Alisson (7/0). Midfielder Fabinho (12/1) and central back Matip (7/1) are injured and out.
Everton is now coming from two back to back defeats in the Premier League, firstly at home against relegation candidates from Norwich, but then staying defeated away from home against Leicester 2:1 last Sunday afternoon.
They did take the lead in the 23rd minute via Richarlison, but it was against the flow of the game while the Foxes outplayed them in the second halftime.
Vardy and Iheanacho reverted the scoreline thanks to their goals, with Everton looking quite passive. The side is now just two points above the red zone placed Southampton.
The guests are set to miss injured defensive midfielders Gomes (8/0) and Gbamin (2/0). Offensive midfielder Walcott (10/0), left-back/defensive midfielder Delph (7/0) and right-back Coleman (9/0) are doubtful.
Liverpool has scored at least 2 goals in their last 14 home matches (Premier League).
Having in mind that this is a local derby game, but also that the individual quality and the momentum remained with the Reds, it's really difficult to see anything but their convincing victory this time.
Liverpool has rarely had any weak performance in the Premier League this season and the visitors simply don't seem up to the certain quality in order to match them here.
