Jurgen Klopp will be aiming become the first Liverpool manager in history to win his first three league Merseyside derbies when Everton visit Anfield on Saturday.
Having overseen 4-0 and 1-0 victories in his two previous derby matches, the German boss is available at 7/10 (1.70) with dabblebet to make it a hat-trick with another win here.
However, the Toffees have lost just one of their last 12 Premier League fixtures, and are priced at 17/4 (5.25) to reclaim the bragging rights by coming out on top in their neighbours' back yard.
Three of the last five meetings between these sides have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 14/5 (2.80) on them cancelling each other out once again on this occasion.
While there were faint murmurings of discontent over Ronald Koeman’s tenure following the defeat at Goodison Park in December’s reverse fixture, it would now be difficult to find a fan who does not stand completely behind the Dutchman.
Although a shock win over Arsenal in the previous fixture provided a minor boost, Koeman went into his first derby match with a team lacking in confidence after six defeats and just two wins in 11 matches.
In contrast, his side will now fancy their chances of restoring local pride after their strong run of form, with Romelu Lukaku looking particularly deadly as he leads an attack that has scored 17 goals in the last six fixtures.
It is certainly hard to see the Reds’ brittle backline containing that threat after keeping just one clean sheet in 10 games, meaning they may be reliant on their team-mates at the other end of the pitch hitting the form that has produced more goals than any other Premier League club this season.
All things considered, odds of 8/11 (1.73) seem secure on an entertaining derby clash producing goals at both ends for Liverpool’s fifth consecutive game, as well as third in four on the road for Everton.
