Liverpool vs Everton
English Premier League.
Date: Sunday, 2 December 2018
Kick-Off at 16:15 UK/ 17:15 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).
The first Merseyside Derby in the Premier League is to take place on Sunday as Everton travel to Anfield.
The Reds are right behind Manchester City, with just 2 points between them. With 10 wins in their 13 matches, Liverpool are 2nd in the table. They have the best defense in the competition which has conceded only 5 goals till now. The attacking lineup including Salah, Mane and Firmino have helped the team to score a total of 26 goals in the league.
In the last 7 matches they won 5 and lost only once. Even though they lost matches in the UCL, they are yet to be defeated in the Premier League. Under 2.5 goals came in 3 of their last 5 competitive matches. At present they are on a 2 match win streak in all venues.
In front of their home crowd they completed a hattrick of wins in all competitions. They are unbeaten at home in the last 4 matches. More than 2.5 goals were scored in total from 3 of their last 5 home fixtures.
Everton are 6th in the points table with 6 wins and 3 defeats. They have managed to score 20 goals and conceded 15 in return. Against a team like Liverpool, the defense has to be on their prime or else they may be looking at a goal fest.
They are on a 3 match win streak in the league. Under 2.5 goals came in 3 of their previous 5 games across all venues. But away form is something to look closely for the manager Marco Silva. His side has only 1 win in their 6 away matches in the league.
That win came against Leicester and is the only win for them in matches on the road in the last 5 games. A win looks near impossible for them as they meet their oldest rivals.
This match is important for the hosts to ensure their dominance in the league and to preserve the unbeaten run also.
