The highlight of the Premier League on Saturday is the latest edition of the Merseyside Derby: Liverpool vs. Everton

This game has become even more important given the closeness of the two clubs in the overall standings. Liverpool are currently sixth with 40 points, while Everton are seventh with 37 points and have a game against their city rivals in the hand has

Liverpool scored the badly needed positive result in the Champions League on Tuesday and won 2-0 in Budapest against RB Leipzig Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane scored the goals, both of them being on a silver platter through defensive mistakes in Leipzig

More importantly, however, Liverpool kept a clean sheet – no Alisson howls in goal or new center-back Ozan Kabak

But we can’t forget Liverpool’s most recent form in the Premier League, the Reds have lost three times in a row – 1-0 against Brighton, 4-1 against Manchester City and 3-1 in Leicester City last Saturday – with big mistakes from Alisson in the last two losses

Liverpool are still third in the league in terms of expected goal difference (xG) according to FBRef, com, at 146 Man City (289) are way ahead of them but Chelsea (15) 7) have only recently overtaken them

Everton was also in action during the week, in a rescheduled Premier League game against Man City, they lost 3-1, but it could have been worse – they were outbid 16-3 in the game

Everton was also missing top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who finished third in the league with 13 goals this season. And they lost center-back Yerry Mina to an injury in the first half against City

This was Everton’s second loss in a row after beating 18th at home last Sunday 2nd place Fulham had lost 2-0 – an impressive result as it was even more one-sided in terms of xG and Fulham dominated with 27-04

Everton have only won one of their last six league games (against Leeds in February) 3) And their relatively high position in the table is pretty lucky by the underlying numbers in terms of the xG difference, Everton is on the -3 at -3 12th Place in the Premier League3

Derby matches can be tough and these teams drew 2-2 at Goodison Park in mid-October – a game better remembered by Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, who sustained an ACL injury at the end of the season (and Everton’s goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was inexplicably dismissed)

As noted above, the gap between these two teams is much larger than what the table says Everton haven’t won at Anfield in 22 years, and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has been unbeaten in 12 games against the Toffees

Liverpool’s problem didn’t create chances They have accumulated 450 xG in 24 league games, not far behind Man City (466) – and no other club have cracked 400 Everton, on the other hand, have conceded twelve goals in the last four games – three against Man City , two against Fulham (two) 7 xG), four at Tottenham (in the FA Cup) and three at Manchester United

Calvert-Lewin is expected back but I still think Liverpool will win this game and comfortably win it – by more than one goal
