Liverpool vs Everton Prediction & Match Preview

Liverpool vs Everton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Anfield.

There will be fireworks when Liverpool and Everton face each other at Anfield in the Merseyside derby. 


The Reds have slim chances of defending their Premier League trophy, and the team’s new goal is to book their place in the Champions League. 

Liverpool aim to put an end to their three-game losing run in the national championship, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Toffees.

Jurgen Klopp has no fresh injury worries, but Fabinho, Jota, Gomez, Matip, and Van Dijk remain in the recovery room. 

Carlo Ancelotti’s troops, on the other hand, continue with their old habit of producing much better showings against top-table sides. 

The Toffees failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to relegation-threatened Fulham, but given Liverpool’s shaky defence, we predict that the visitors are going to find the net in the local derby. Key attacker Dominic Calvert-Lewin should be fit to face the Reds.

Team News:

Liverpool could welcome Naby Keita back into their squad for this match, with the midfielder returning to training earlier this week after two months out.

There were also fitness boosts ahead of the Leipzig game with Divock Origi and Ben Davies shaking off knocks to make the bench, but Liverpool do still have a lengthy list of absentees.

Fabinho and James Milner remain major doubts with muscle and hamstring issues respectively, while Saturday's derby will come too soon for Diogo Jota.

Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, the latter of whom was injured in the reverse fixture, all remain long-term absentees who may not feature again this season.

While Liverpool have been in poor form of late, Mohamed Salah has continued to score, with his strike in midweek - his 24th of the campaign - taking him beyond last season's goal tally already.

Everton have been handed fitness boosts with Ancelotti confirming that both Allan and Dominic Calvert-Lewin should be fit to start on Saturday.

Allan has not featured since December 16, while Calvert-Lewin has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury and will be looking to score his ninth away goal of the season - something only Romelu Lukaku has done for Everton in a single Premier League campaign before.

Saturday's match will come too soon for Yerry Mina, though, while Jean-Philippe Gbamin is not expected back until next month.

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Kabak, Henderson, Robertson; Thiago, Wijnaldum, Jones; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Coleman, Holgate, Keane, Digne; Doucoure, Allan; Rodriguez, Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin
