It’s been almost a whole decade of misery in this fixture for Everton, whose last Merseyside derby win came back in 2010.
Now standing at 19 games, this is the longest win drought in derby history.
Narrow it down to games at Anfield and it’s 20 years since they tasted victory.
Given their current plight – they sit 17th, just one place and two points outside the relegation zone – it’s hard to make a case for them winning at 8/1.
The Toffees have often appeared to bring fear into the game, particularly at Anfield, and Liverpool have regularly made them pay.
They’ve won four of the last six at Anfield and many Blues will fear a repeat of the 4-0 drubbing handed out in the dying days of Roberto Martinez’s tenure.
However, history suggests a tighter game is more likely. Only three of the last 16 derbies have been seen the sides separated by more than one goal, while the two games since Marco Silva was appointed at Goodison have seen very little between the pair.
The Goodison game in March ended goalless, a result which ultimately proved the difference in the title race, while the Anfield encounter should have ended with the same scoreline but was famously settled by Jordan Pickford’s hideous injury-time error.
Everton actually performed well in that game and created some good chances of their own, although Andre Gomes, impressive that day, will be sorely missed. For the hosts, Alisson is suspended but Adrian’s early-season displays suggest he won’t be as big a miss.
The Toffees fought hard at Leicester on Sunday only to be undone late on again and another narrow defeat looks more than possible here.
A one-goal win for the hosts can be backed at 5/2.
Five of Liverpool’s last six games in all competition have come via this method, while in the league’s it’s seven of the last eight.
