Everton are playing at home against Liverpool in a match of round 29 of the English Premier League. For a new consecutive year The Toffees started the season with big expectations after one summer with many transfers, but eventually, their most significant accomplishment could be a victory over their city rival. In the recent times, they can’t even boast with success in this rivalry – Everton don’t have a win in 18 consecutive fixtures against Liverpool, which is an absolute anti-record in the 125-year history of this rivalry.
It was a tough start of 2019 for Liverpool after they had just three wins in the first nine games of the year. In February, The Reds achieved more draws than wins, and the tension seemed to be hovering in the team. However, on Wednesday Liverpool humiliated Watford with 5-0.
Indeed, Everton’s manager Marco Silva is aware that he cannot fight against a well-trained Liverpool team and we think that he will use a defensive scheme. Everton have quick players like Richarlison, Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Theo Walcott, who can help The Toffees with the counter-attacks. On the other hand, Liverpool have conceded just eight goals as guests since the start of the season.
