Betting Tips for the game
Liverpool suffered a major blow to the Champions League last-16 qualification hopes after a 2-1 loss against PSG. This was the second defeat in consecutive European games for Jurgen Klopp’s men, who secured an uninspiring 3-0 win over Watford during the weekend.
Everton picked up a 1-0 win over Cardiff City at the Goodison Park to make it three consecutive wins at home in the Premier League. Everton, now, managed just one victory on the road so far.

Everton have picked up a strong set of results at Goodison Park but they have not been great away from home. It is almost an identical situation to the one experienced by Liverpool, who come on the back of just one win in the recent for away games. This is in sharp contrast to an unbeaten record at Anfield that goes back to April 2017. Everton will find it hard to get anything out of the game and they have lost four in the recent five games at Anfield. Our preview would go with a win for Liverpool.
