Everton vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Sunday, 3 March 2019
Kick-off at 16.15 UK/ 17.15 CET
Venue: Goodison Park (Liverpool).
Liverpool has no option but to win their remaining ten games in the league. In one sense they might still be relaxed since their title ambition still hinges on their matches alone. They don’t have to depend on the results of other teams, especially Manchester City. But the luxury is not guaranteed if the Reds fail to rise to the occasion in the remainder of the season.
They have to win this weekend. Period.
The task may be tough though, considering the team has to deal with the Merseyside Derby. Everton may not be that much of an obstacle for the rest of the squads in the league. But never Liverpool. It’s pride and honor at stake. Either would give up winning 10-0 to any other side for a 1-0 win in the derby.
A tough, entertaining 90 minutes is in order for us fans, this Saturday.

Everton vs Liverpool Prediction
Jurgen Klopp’s men are desperate for the league title, and right now a shore is in sights. Ten more games remain for them starting with this one, and if they could dole out ten wins, it would put an end to the miserable three-decade long wait they have been having.
They are rejuvenated with the 5-0 loss inflicted upon Watford. Their frontline has once more come to the fore, and on back of the best defensive line currently in England, and maybe Europe, they are tipped to take the required three points.
H2h stats suggest nothing but an away win this Saturday. The Reds have recorded the last nine wins in a row, and 23 of the last 27. At this venue, the record reads 10 wins against just three losses for them. Moreover, the last time Everton won against Liverpool was in 2010.
One thing that might motivate the visitors is the fact that Everton has conceded just a single goal fewer at home than Huddersfield, the last team in the table.
Everton who lost three of their last four games, and the last two at home, is rightfully expected to lose this one too. Liverpool will take no risk with the derby and will be on high alert. The likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Allison Becker etc will ensure the team returns with a clean sheet.
