Jurgen Klopp’s men have been lethal upfront lately and will be looking to continue their imperious form when they clash with Sam Allardyce’s side

Liverpool make a short trip to Goodison Park to take on local rivals Everton for their English Premier League encounter on Saturday.

After a commanding 3-0 display against Manchester City in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday night at Anfield, they will be aiming to continue the blistering form and stretch their winning streak to four against Sam Allardyce’s men.

The Reds are the third best team on the road in the topflight this season, winning nine of 16 games, a feat only bettered by City and Tottenham Hotspur.

Besides, having won four of their last five meetings with their hosts, they should have little difficulty clinching another victory at the price of (1.90) with Bet365.

Liverpool have shared the spoils with the Toffees in four of their previous five meetings at the Goodison Park which makes the odds of (3.60) a good offer for a repeat in the tie.

Everton slumped to a 3-1 defeat in their last encounter against Pep Guardiola’s charges, though they maintained ninth spot on the log with 40 points from 32 duels.

They face another stern test against Jurgen Klopp’s in-from side and it is yet to be seen how they deal with it, knowing that they have not won against any of the top five teams this term. Hence, they have been tagged as underdogs for this clash at the odds of (3.75).

The Anfield giants are unbeaten in ten of their last 11 outings and punters willing to play safe can back them to avoid defeat at the quote of (1.28) with the same betting firm.

Given the Reds’ attacking prowess lately which has produced ten goals in their last three games, goals will likely be at a premium and the bookmakers are offering (1.80) for over 2.5 goals to surface.

Mohamed Salah took his goal tally to 38 in all competitions this season on Wednesday and Bet365 is backing the Egypt international to score anytime at the odds of (2.10) if he gets to play.
