Jurgen Klopp celebrates Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace
Our tipster is backing Jurgen Klopp's Reds to win a goal-laden game against Sam Allardyce's Toffees in Saturday's Merseyside derby at Goodison Park

Pride and passion will be in plentiful supply when Everton meet Liverpool in Saturday's Merseyside derby at Goodison Park. 

The Toffees have a terrible recent record in this fixture, having failed to get the better of the Reds in the last 16 matches between the rivals.

Liverpool face Manchester City in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final tie on Tuesday night but, with local bragging rights at stake, Jurgen Klopp's men cannot afford to take their eye off the ball here.

Latest odds

The Reds are chalked up as SportPesa's 20/23 (1.87) favourites to come out on top, while the same firm offer 33/10 (4.30) that the match ends all square.

Sam Allardyce has not proven universally popular since replacing Ronald Koeman earlier this term, but a win here would certainly go some way to silencing his critics.

SportPesa go 11/4 (3.75) that the Toffees take all three points with a win this weekend.

Team news

Joe Gomez, Adam Lallana and Joel Matip are out, but Emre Can could be fit to face the Toffees.

Mohamed Salah limped off during the second half of Liverpool's 3-0 Champions League win over Manchester City on Wednesday night and may play a limited role here.

For Everton, Eliaquim Mangala, Gylfi Sigurdsson and James McCarthy are all long-term absentees, while Idrissa Gueye is likely to miss out.

Ashley Williams is available after serving a three-match suspension following his red card against Burnley last month.

Reds to get amongst the goals?

Liverpool have scored 75 goals in 32 Premier League matches this season and SportPesa go 53/20 (3.65) that the Reds score more than two goals here.

The same firm also offer 4/5 (1.80) that there are at least three goals in the game, a selection which would have landed in 13 of the last 15 away fixtures that Klopp's charges have contested.

Tips and predictions

Everton suffered a bruising 3-1 defeat against Manchester City last weekend, while the Reds will be brimming with belief after their thrilling 3-0 win against the same opposition in midweek.

As such, it could be another tough day at the office for the Toffees and it is worth noting that there have been at least three goals in 11 of Liverpool's 12 away wins in all competitions this term.

SportPesa's 9/5 (2.80) quote, therefore, for the trend to continue here could offer good value for punters.

Over 2.5 goals and Liverpool to win at 9/5 (2.80) for a 1pt stake with SportPesa
