Premier League 2020-21: Everton vs Liverpool Match Prediction
Liverpool will travel to Goodison Park to take on their former boss, Rafael Benitez, and his Everton side for another Merseyside chapter on Wednesday night.
Sportco delivers an in-depth preview, head-to-head analysis, predicted lineups and score prediction for the Everton vs Liverpool game.
Everton have played awful football in past games and lost consecutive matches. The Toffees are in 14th place, and Benitez men will need to bounce back in this Merseyside fixture or else they might see themselves in the relegation zone.
While the Reds have set their expectations higher and fared stunningly in the previous game, they scored eight goals and conceded none in the last games.
This match will bring back old memories for Virgil van Dijk, who picked up a season-ending injury after damaging his anterior cruciate ligament in last October’s Merseyside derby and missed an entire season.
