LIVERPOOL v EVERTON BETTING PREVIEWLiverpool currently sit 4th in the Premier League standings. Big home wins over Tottenham and Arsenal as well as a draw at Man City have resurrected Jurgen Klopp's season after that miserable run of form during January. Their major concern is the defense as they have managed just two clean sheets in their last 13 games in all competitions. The Reds ran out 1-0 winners at Goodison back in December and romped to a 4-0 victory when they entertained Everton at Anfield last season. They are undefeated in their last 18 home matches against Everton in all competitions.
Liverpool have hired a private jet to get Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino back in time for this clash. Adam Lallana was an injury victim of the international break and will be replaced by Emre Can, as Jordan Henderson is fully recovered. Full-back duo Nathaniel Clyne and James Milner might play alongside centre-back pairing Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan with Simon Mignolet between the sticks. Danny Ings, Ovie Ejaria and Daniel Sturridge are all out through injury.
Everton enter this derby high on confidence as they are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 matches in Premier League. Their only defeat in the process was a 3-2 loss at second-placed Tottenham. As a result, Ronald Koeman's men are currently level on points with 6th-placed Arsenal. Anyway, away from Goodison Park they have struggled for wins all season long and they have taken three points in only two of their last 12 fixtures. The Toffees are in fine form in front of goal though, scoring 11 times in their last four outings.
Seamus Coleman suffered an awful leg break while on international duty and will be replaced by Mason Holgate. He joins long-term absentee Yannick Bolasie on the sidelines, while Morgan Schneiderlin, Muhamed Besic and James McCarthy are all doubtful. Ramiro Funes Mori is sidelined after being stretchered off in Argentina's 2-0 loss to Bolivia. The youngster Dominic Calvert-Lewin is expected to retain his berth up front, alongside Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley.
