Liverpool vs Everton Preview – Prediction, how to watch & potential line-ups

The latest chapter of the famed Merseyside Derby between city rivals Liverpool and Everton on Monday seems like a fitting way to cap off another exciting Premier League weekend. 

Back to the home comforts of Anfield following a thumping 3-0 defeat at bottom-half Wolverhampton Wanderers, the Reds will be out to redeem themselves to devastated home supporters. 

Last weekend’s humbling at Molineux left Liverpool winless in all four league outings in 2023 (D1, L3) and served to ramp up more pressure on under-fire manager Jurgen Klopp.

Dangerously close to starting a new calendar year with five straight winless matches in the Premier League for only the second time in their history, the hosts are desperate to return to winning ways. 

However, in other circumstances, they would be overwhelming pre-match favourites, but Sean Dyche’s arrival at the helm of Everton has sparked life out of the out-of-sorts Toffees side. 

After going winless in ten consecutive games in all competitions down the final stretch of Frank Lampard’s underwhelming managerial tenure (D2, L8), the visitors took a massive scalp last weekend. 

Dyche got his career at Goodison Park off to a flying start as James Tarkowski inspired Everton to a 1-0 home win over non-other than league leaders Arsenal on the 51-year-old’s touchline debut.

Having reduced the gap on safety to a single point, the Toffees are looking to defy their humiliating away H2H record in the Merseyside Derby in the new millennium (W1, D10, L14). 

Match Preview


Stuck in mid-table lethargy, ten points adrift of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool may wave goodbye to their hopes of securing another European finish unless they find a way out of this crisis soon. 

Despite adding Dutch prodigy Cody Gakpo to their ranks in January, the Reds have drawn a blank in their last three Premier League matches, as many scoring blanks as in their previous 65 outings combined. 

A scoreless draw against fellow mid-table rivals Chelsea in their last top-flight game at Anfield marked Liverpool’s first scoring blank at home in 33 league fixtures. 


Everton know a thing or two about struggling in front of goal themselves, as after Wolves’ 2-1 win at Southampton on Saturday, they’re left as the league’s lowest goalscorers at 16.

While the aforementioned toppling of Arsenal puts the Toffees on the cusp of winning back-to-back league games for only the second time this season, their shameful away form in the Premier League tells a different story.

Dyche’s men have racked up just two wins on their last 27 top-flight travels (D7, L18), while they’ve won a league joint-low one out of ten away league matches this term (D4, L5).

Liverpool vs Everton Prediction 

Given the sides’ current situation in the Premier League table, this match holds much more than just local bragging rights. 

Victory for Liverpool could be a good starting point for their revival, but three points for Everton may be a turning point as they bid to retain their top-flight status. 

However, we can easily envisage a draw in what promises a feisty affair with a handful of chances.
